Every time I go to New York I’m on a mission to find the perfect pair of boots, but I never do. This time I thought salvation had come in the form of the Acne Pistols, but they didn’t have them in my size, so I bought them online and they were there when i got home. Unfortunately they made my legs look like Christmas hams jammed into a couple of canoes. Luckily my art director Birnie didn’t look hammy in them at all so she bought them from me.
In all the discussion that followed, my fashion news editor Anna came out with a doozie she’d been holding back from me the whole time: Rag and Bone’s Newburys. The perfect ankle boot. Not too slim, not too chunky. The-just-round-enough toe. Feel like walking on clouds (almost). Young or old, edgy or conservative, mother on the school run or young nubile teen planning to wear them with inappropriately short denim cut-offs, I think everyone needs a pair. I bought mine from lagarconne.com but you can find them on lots of online stores.
