    I read this article in the New York Times and it sparked a thread idea for Summer Boots. they are everywhere, including my closet :cool:, and for all of us that refuse to give up wearing boots year round they're so many beauties to choose from.

    the article:
    two of my favorites

    ah, the ann demeulemeester lace-ups, *envy*
    i like those best, the ones in the times were often open toe boots, which I've always been skeptical of as a bit too fashionista

    ^ I love those three! I'm surprised there isn't much interest in NDC on here, I have the tall version of those boots and I was tempted by that pair ^ for the summer. So versatile!

    doesnt mean they aren't good. they have legs...she is getting so popular now it is a bit of a nuisance but the whole saturation overload is a downer. each season brings a new onslaught of oversaturation, especially in footwear...at least we are talking about summer boots and not jeweled or studded whatever.

    up here in new england they are a rare bird.

    i am in love with the ann dems, but i do agree that they got so hyped it's a little tough on them.

    also, i bike everywhere, so i'm realistic about my 4" heel purchases. my balenciaga 5" gladiator wedges don't get much play... and they're very like the ann dem lace-ups.

    summer boots get sweaty.

    ^ Ick i know. The worst is trying to take them off when they're sweaty.

    i often take out my brown riding boots to wear with a floral little dress, or my gray suede booties to wear with all black and a ton of jewelry. boots are my favorite! why shouldn't they be seen in all seasons?! :smile:

    So you would stop wearing your favorite items just because they became popular? :huh:

    Surely you should be confident enough in your own style that you know that you will not wear them like most people. :P

    ^ No, I would not have bought them in the first place, tbh...
    I don't want to look like everyone else, so while they are nice, the sheer factor that I will more
    than likely see them on every other girl is a complete turn-off...
    I like my pieces to be special... not over-saturated..
    But it is a nice shoe... there is no denying it..

    Thanks for starting this thread lucky! :flower:
    I have noticed too that I am wearing more "sandal-boots" this summer rather than just sandals and they help to lend a bit of gravitas to my rolled-up pants or skirts for the office.
    The fact that designers have made boots part of their S/S collections have no doubt added to the push.

    As for the Ann D lace up boots, yes they are popular, especially among the fashion forums and blogs.
    But to be honest, I have yet to see anyone else wearing them IRL..to paraphrase Lucky, the Ann D's are a rare bird in OC too.

    The Ann D's are not my thing anyway. I just don't think they have any place in my style. The Rick Owens are a little better. But those Haider Ackerman's are quite lovely. I'd have to play around with them to work them into my wardrobe, but they catch my eye. I've been wondering about boots in the summer because in exactly 2 weeks, I will make the switch back to my native hemisphere (up north) where it will be summer and I feel like I should therefore, wear my black boots as much as possible while I still can.

    Also, this caught my eye and made me snicker a bit:
    I don't know if you need to own a boutique to dream up that name or if a name such as that implies being coined and merits quotation marks. It's quite literal actually.

    I love summer boots! I really want a pair of flat ankle boots for summer to go with dresses.

    kind of like these but less weird looking
