The Simple Boot by VASS

I have been really really getting into boots as of late. I mean, far worse than I already was if you can believe that. The more that I see them the more that I want them, all styles included too; from balmoral boots, to spat boots, to derby Boots and all the lovely chukka boots. Doing a count in my head, I just realized that I now own 8 boots (after literally just giving one away yesterday) and another one on the way (my bespoke G&G’s!). And my thirst for them is only now beginning. I mean, I don’t even have a spat boot yet and this disappoints me thoroughly (don’t worry I am not really this sad). Now to get to the point at hand, I would say that in the past I would have seen this boot and probably thought nothing of it. But now that this sickness for boots and owning them is plaguing my very existence, I find myself incredibly attracted to this simplistic boot by Laszlo Vass.

What I think has been the turning point with me and the idea of owning boots is that due to their casual yet smart nature, they have almost replaced trainers for me. That being, all of the trainers that I have and only ever wore on Sundays, I now find myself bypassing them altogether and going straight for one of my boots. And this boot by VASS looks like a great example of something that would sit just right underneath my semi-smart Sunday attire. It’s clean and simple which gives it a casual but also smart presence. You would never dress it up but it would sit well with almost anything casual or semi-smart. And that is what I am starting to love about boots. Their versatility is simply brilliant….
