Ladies shoes take a hike

Share |

John Galliano Fall 2010 ready to wear collection

Ladies boots are going all outdoorsy this Autumn/Winter. Designers have taken inspiration from the humble hiking boot and have turned them into a sexy city ankle boot.

The look was seen on a number of catwalks including Peter Som, Moschino Cheap & Chic. John Galliano and Erdem.

Pop princess Kylie Minogue has even been seen wearing a pair of lace up high heeled ankle boots on a recent trip back to Australia to see sister Dannii and meet her new nephew Ethan. And according to Look magazine, “Kylie chose a sexy cutout LBD complete with shades and a pair of the sexiest ankle boots we’ve seen in a while for her Australian comeback.”

According to style bible Vogue, “Designers are feeling outdoorsy for autumn/winter 2010-11.” They reckon that “Pavement-gripping lug soles give heels a ready-for-anything feel.” But they do advice anyone looking to wear the look that “details matter here: desert boot stitching, lumberjack lacing, buckles and straps” are all key factors to look for when picking out a new ankle boot for the autumn.

While it’s unlikely you would be able to hike up a mountain in these high-heeled beauties they do look super sexy and the lug soles will add a bit of stability while walking around on icy wet pavements as they’ll grip the tarmac and should stop at least a few toples.

And what’s more there are loads of copies all over the high street for a fraction of the designer price tag so you don’t have to break the bank and can start wearing them now and be truly fashion forward prior to the onset of winter.

However, if a more traditional style walking boot is more your thing then that is bang on trend too. Debenhams have noticed that sales of hiking gear including boots have gone up and have dubbed the craze “Wainwright chic” after the famous hill walker.

Paul Baldwin, director of menswear buying at Debenhams, said:

Men and women have fallen in love with the rugged outdoor image the hill climbing clothing style portrays, and want to wear it every day.

At one time, these specialist clothes would have been bought only by long-distance hill walkers and mountaineers.

Now, however, you’re more likely to see them worn on the streets of Kensington and Chelsea than Scafell or Grisedale Pike,” he added.
