A Legendary Boot by Septieme Largeur
The last time that I was in Paris, as I usually do, I found myself hanging about the Septieme Largeur shop, seeing what was new and exciting. While there, the owner Mr. Marcos Fernandez, was telling me of a shoe design that he was working on and that it would be something that I had never seen before. As you can imagine, I was incredibly intrigued by the notion of "something I had never seen before" and was therefore quite excited to know what it was, almost having a bit of disbelief as I have spent countless hours of my life looking at shoes. So the other day, Marcos emails me and tells me to brace myself, as his project was done and was about to send me some pictures of the results. Needless to say, I was blown away by what he did send me. A triple buckle monk strap balmoral boot. I mean, really, this is f***ing legendary!! It's amazing, brilliant, beautiful and makes me incredibly envious. What a design and concept and he was right, I had never seen anything like it. I love every color but am particularly fond of the black/gray combo as well as the one in all brown suede....what a jean boot that would be!!
Marcos told me that this would be something that will be sitting in the front window of his shop, available for sale, within one months' time...so for all those intrigued, start saving your money!
Well, anyway, I thought that you would either love or hate this so please feel free to bring the comments on!
