Hiking up the Ladder

| CNAW | www.PinksandBermuda.com

 

The hiking boot or the mountain boot, as many like to call it, is becoming the new trend for fall 2016. This practical but stylish shoe has a cute-ugly vibe to it, but it’s the definition of vogue!  If you’re going for an edgy look these stagger lace ups will give just that! These are far from traditionally stylish, so you’ll stand out even more. 

 

Two styles that I love are from Loius Vuitton and Tod’s!

With the Tods’ hiking boot, that striking red is so captivating amongst the other muted colours. The chunky heel makes the shoe so versatile; you can wear it for a trip to town, or a casual night out! The high fashion look will have you hiking up in the fashion ladder, making others undeniably jealous!

When I first saw this shoe, I got chills instantly! I mean- look. at. this shoe! This Burberry Westmarsh embellished leather and snakeskin boot is ahmazing. Christopher Bailey did an awesome job in replicating this version of the hiking boot! From the Italian-crafted cutout leather and snakeskin, to the belted strap detailing, to the corset-inspired laces, all the way to the colours selected; the shoe is nothing but a masterpiece!

This trend has also been adapted by up and coming designers as well! IAmJennifer has the Driftwood boot which is so bomb! If you’re unfamiliar with Jennifer Le, I suggest you come out from under the rock you’ve been under!

If heels aren’t your thing, have no fear! This funky trend has also been fashionably created to reflect actual hiking boots made for, you know, real hiking. What ever that is
These can replace your go-to combat boots for a new chic but rustic flare. They have the same fun laces and deep ridged sole.
