On my radar: Work boots with a little bit extra…

It’s good to see utilitarian looks being given a bit of extra snazz. Joe Casely-Hayford has revived the John Moore Paragon boot (cult 80s-90s work boot with commando sole and assorted rugged straps), introducing a 12-hole version. I have the originals which get many admiring glances but the Casely-Hayfords (below) are sadly only for guys at this stage. (Read the John Moore story over at Style Salvage.)
Meanwhile, JW Anderson’s heavy metal-adorned work boots (below) are accompanied by an equally hefty studded sock. I think these are mens too but I believe there may be smaller sizes available. I’m seeing these juxtaposed with khaki army surplus trousers (khaki and red, mmmmm) and a silk bourgeois blouse or Equipment shirt. Shoe designers: let’s have more of these in lady sizes please…

    Hallo,

    These type of boots are really going to add a masculine feel to a floral dress. I think they'd also look incredible with a maxi dress/skirt, to give that juxtaposition every outfit needs!
