5 YYYES for lace up boots

1. They raze the statement ˝boots are for summer, flops are for winter˝
You know how it feels in the winter when you have layers of outwear and you still need to wear giant shoes. Lace up boots, for some reason adhere on leg more naturally than most of the boots, and laces are making the effect of detail so you don’t have to do additional effort.
2. Feel of the model off the duty style
Long before Ann Demeulemeester or even when this trend of lace up started, the girls that walk the runaway had sense for motorcycle style.

3. Heels or flats
Just choose which makes you feel more comfy daily because even flats lace up boots are very wearable for the night, parties (giving your outfit strong, confident glance)

4. Findable from 1000 $ to 50$ depending on what brand you will choose. From flats my favorites are models with tradition like Martens, Timberland’s or Justin’s (vintage Justin lace up boots are like melody for my heart)

oak boots, Mentor lace up boots, Zeha Berlin boots, Jeffrey Campbell navy lace up boots, Timberland lace up boots
5. Working for the in- a- minute chic
Just think of white long tees and stockings or even nude legs when it’s little warmer. Think of all the high wasted skirts and ripped jean.

I have a suede high-heeled version I bought two years ago from Topshop. I agree that this style is really versatile with regard to how they sit on your leg. Love the examples here! The army style ones are really cool.
