Simply put, a statement shoe is a girl’s best friend. This key piece in one’s closet is just as important as having buildable basics. A statement shoe can come in any silhouette, too, making it easy to elevate your aesthetic in any season. Fashion tastemakers reach for a standout shoe when they’re seeking to renew their sense of inspiration or to create new looks with garments they already own. A great pair can transform a look as soon as you pull them on, and no one does it quite like Italian designers. From opulent embellishments to engineered textiles, we can trust Italy’s most coveted fashion houses to give us spectacular styles to collect. This time around, we’re looking to Thierry Rabotin for the ultimate statement boot to match with fall’s cozy layers and patterns.
Thierry Rabotin’s Ponce boot is an on-trend style constructed of various materials in multiple finishes. It features an elegantly pointed toe, low heel, and a side zipper. Highlights include a coated finish, monochromatic star print, suede detailing, and lustrous patent leather. The shaft opening is split at the counter to show a peek of a signature blue interior. The upper hits right above the ankle for a stable fit while the removable footbed offers all-day comfort by cushioning the foot’s natural arch. We love this boot for its eclectic mix of textures, which lends itself to an undeniable versatility. It can enliven drab workwear or facilitate your off-duty individuality depending on your mood.
The Ponce boot is incredibly easy to style with the latest trends of the year. A cashmere turtleneck sweater over a sequin midi skirt is a surprising combination that will make you stand out in a crowd. Fashion influencers are bringing back boots and dresses, too. Don’t be afraid to rock a full-length dress and contrasting hosiery with Ponce. Black goes with everything, so we like the idea of playing with color, too. Get experimental with a bright blouse over slim pants for a day of shopping with friends. Let the Ponce boot do all of the talking on a romantic date with a full-on monochromatic look. Opt for a mid-length skirt and a graphic T-shirt for a chic rocker look that will make you simply irresistible. No matter how you choose to style it, make sure to take the proper precautions in preserving the beauty of the Ponce boot, as well. We recommend storing them in the original box or a dust bag to safeguard the pair from particles and liquids. The leathers are delicate but easy to maintain with a spray protectant and leather brush.
