Boots used to be viewed as utilitarian and necessary. You had your snow boots, your rain boots and maybe a pair of dress boots for work or going out. Then came riding boots, motorcycle boots, ankle boots, over-the-knee boots...today endless.com has almost 20 different categories of boots! And I want them all. I swore left and right and the end of last winter that I was "all set" with my boots. I've got plenty and in enough varieties that will keep me looking great for a little while. Unfortunately, like shoes in general, I'm learning that you can never have enough boots.
The latest pair of boots that are sooo different from everything else in my shoe closet and that I would totally wear all the time are Steven by Steve Madden's Adeson Boot. These are just so chic and cool, I can't wait to get my hands on them. They fit in flawlessly with the must-have military trend, but with the distressing, they look like something you've had forever. They'd look great with leggings and denim, as well as with winter-weight mini's with tights. And what I really love is that the top buttons are actually functional so you can always undo them and fold down the flaps for that artfully undone look.
