I love boots! I wear them all year round with pants, jeans, dresses and skirts. In the warm months, I love the look of light colored boots, no stockings and a summer dress. Here in Florence we are seeing lots of summer boots in very lightweight leather, both short and tall. I am a little embarrassed to say how many pairs of boots I own, but I just can’t seem to have enough of them: equestrian, stilettos, rain boots, cowboy boots, booties, and the best of all, HANDMADE ITALIAN BOOTS! This picture is a pair of chocolate brown handmade boots in leather and suede. I had a pair made just like them in camel color leather and suede. Everywhere I go people compliment me on them! They are so comfortable I can walk all day long on the cobblestones here and not have sore feet. The price for handmade boots? Quite the pleasant surprise! I know a beautiful shoe boutique here that will custom make boots and shoes for customers in any color or fabric. Am thinking about gray suede now…..or maybe dark navy blue? This shop also custom makes handbags to match the shoes and boots- python, suede, patent leather, the list goes on and on!
