mad love for western boots



when i first saw the product assortment for our july catalog, in a rare turn of events my eyes went straight to the boots.  i’m really not a shoe person, and typically stick to flip flops or moccasins.  but the boots in this catalog are incredible, and we have two different styles that i’m particularly fond of.

the freebird boots are a collection featuring three different boot styles (the haven distressed boot and hatchet harness boot are both online now) and exclusively made by hand for free people. our shoe buyer loved the slanted top, the distressed leather and the top quality construction with unique, eye-catching details like hand-painted welts and studded backing. this style is perfect for toughening up a girlier look:

the luxury jones boots actually have a story that goes back to the bonnaroo festival last summer.  a group of us fp girls were there and spotted this girl on the left wearing a pretty amazing pair of boots. we had to stop her and take her photo! our shoe buyer loved them as well, and a year later, we have our very own version :) the luxury jones boots are constructed using vintage western style boots and belts. since each shoe is handmade, every pair will have its own unique variations.  these boots make quite a statement, and we love them paired with a more casual look to funk it up!

i’m so torn over which ones i want to buy! which ones do you guys like better – the freebird or the luxury jones?!

  1. The Luxury Jones, hands down! They have bohemian written all over them! Immediately went to the wishlist when I saw that What’s New page with all the July items! xoxo

  2. julia-i laughed at your first comments: as much as i adore clothes, i’m not a shoe person either-i live in my flip flops all summer long. but these boots! when the july catalog went up on the site, i scrolled down and clicked on the boots section first-total, total love. i really like both of these styles, but after i saw the photos above of the backs of the freebirds with the fleur de lis and the studs…those will be mine!

  3. Oh my goodness… those haven distressed freebirds! I really hope they don’t fly out of stock in my size too quickly, as I will be saving every penny for a pair! Free People you are killing my bank account, yet I love it :)

  4. Always love seeing the clothes on real women and ordinary pics…it gives you true sense of the garments…show showcase these types of pics more often :)

  5. what about the detailing on the toe of the luxury jones boots. what is the brand of that boot? or how was that toe detail added or made? It is fantastic!!
