Hut, Two, Three, Four With Nine West’s Donley Boot
Military-inspired fashions are huge for fall, a interesting phenomenon given that even those Americans with a war-mongering attitude are likely to disapprove of our troops’ presence in Iraq and Afghanistan (though the latter is a greater source of debate). Perhaps our fascination with military motifs has less to do with the armed forces and, instead, echoes the desire for bravery in times of economic and political turmoil. It could be a desire to “suit up” in order to embrace the warrior woman within, the core of strength and resilience.
Nine West‘s Donley boots (which ship October 19th) zero in on the military style trend, with olive green suede uppers, and three brown leather straps wrapping across the ankle area, each adorned with brass arrow embellishments that resemble the shape of military rank stripes. With a 4″ heel, 1/2″ platform, lug sole, and harness-lie buckles along the back of the heel and the ankle collar, these lace-up boots will take charge of any ensemble and whip it into shape.
