Boots are the Next Big Thing

Carmina boots

Boots are popping up everywhere and it’s not just because A/W is coming. For the last year or so, it really seems that people have been more and more keen on getting a nice pair of boots that can transition between smart casual wear (think chinos with sport coats) all the way down to wearing with your jeans for your relaxing Sunday. And why not? As we get older and don’t really want to just throw on some Nike’s, we need a smart alternative that looks good but still allows us to be casual at the same time. And (at least in my opinion) no matter how dressy the boot is, it still looks good underneath a nice pair of tapered jeans. This boot in particular, by Carmina, which seems to be done in cordovan looks like one of the more perfect options for being able to transition between semi casual dress wear and a proper casual lazy day. After all, back in the early 1900’s boots were the dominant footwear of choice so why can’t we go back to that? Who knows, maybe in 10 years time, it will….doubtful, but nice to know that they are again becoming more popular!
