the beige suede ones have a different heel than the white/red ones-- not as slender-- are we sure these are real?? or is it just the more 60s go go boot version?

they are real...
she is now doing several variations on the theme...

she has dramatically expanded her footwear line in the past year or so...
i'd say the last 3 seasons now...

more options!!...better prices because they no longer have to be custom made...

but the quality is not nearly the same...
though still very cool...

So is there anywhere in the USA or Canada where you can get the real deal? I am interested in the basic pirate boot, or the ones with heels.

Thanks, Kate

What does everyone think of the new westwood shoes from the a/w collections? i've got my eye on a couple of pairs instead of getting the dior homme gold boots. i hope they're as good as the rocking horse shoes which i have from like ages ago (dug out of my auties wardrobe - they're a bit small but they're so cool its worth the pain lol)

pirate boots
i bought the ones i_<3_chanel posted last year from ebay for 25 dollars! they are so cute. i wear them with two oversized long tank tops (one peeking out) layered as a dress, i love that look. pirate boots goes just amazing with mini loose dresses and skirts aswell. have one suede cream and black velvet beside this one, none of them are designer brands, but its always a pleasure to walk in them anyway.

argh! i just checked the website and she's done a limited edition re-issue of the squiggle print pirate boots like the ones from the 80's

Quote:
To celebrate Vivienne Westwood’s 35 years of influential fashion design and her hugely successful retrospective exhibition currently travelling the world on tour, Vivienne has re-issued her iconic and celebrity coveted Pirate boots in the original ‘Squiggle print’. First seen in her groundbreaking ‘Pirate’ collection of A/W 1981 the boots have become recognized as one of the most signature Westwood pieces. Normally only available in plain leather the bold ‘Pirate squiggle’ is now back in its signature red print on white leather or black print on brown leather. Exclusively in Vivienne Westwood shops they are sure to become a collector’s item and essential addition to any hip wardrobe.
<- the same one from the "pirate" collection in 1981
i must have them!!

oh yeah all my sources are www.viviennewestwood.com

LOVE this thread!

In Japan they sell a whole different line of Vivienne Westwood shoes. They don't make sizes bigger than 7.5 so I think they are made specially for Japan (maybe licenced?), but the styles are gorgeous nonetheless: there were a pair of lace-up heels like Softie's, except in teal suede with a slightly curved wedge heel . Does anyone know anything about this line?

Softie, all my shoe-crushes seem to end up at your place ! But it's a pleasure seeing them loved and worn so beautifully. I guess it's a blessing in disguise because if they carried size 8 shoes in Japan I'd be broke...

The pirate boots are so gorgeous...very 80's rock star.
