If you follow us on twitter, you know that today is a little thing called “Tuesday Shoesday” – a celebration of awesome shoe style :) With that in mind, today I thought I’d highlight some of our newest boots that are right up my alley! We love western style boots right now – they are perfect to take your basic jeans and tee up a notch, adding a little something cool and special to a simple look. The pattern inset boots add some funky print and color, and a little bit of stitching or a buckle adds a unique touch.
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!
