These boots were made for
I know you might not want to hear this but fall is on its way – and it’s best you start preparing your wardrobes now so that when the temperatures inevitably drop and the rain settles in, you’re ready. Enter the Bottega Veneta Puddle Boot, the must-have unisex footwear silhouette of the season, which launches today.
The boot was first spotted on the brand’s F/W ’20 runway and is the Italian luxury label’s interpretation of the classic rain boot. The brand’s influence can be seen on the toe in particular, where its signature bulky toe has been reimagined for the boot in a “sleek one piece mold.”
A new launch for the season, the boot is made using a biodegradable polymer which is 100 per cent recyclable. The design is also super lightweight, meaning you can trudge through the rain without feeling like you have ankle weights on. The boot is available in four colourways – black, an earthy brown, a vibrant pink and a yellowy-green – so you can choose your favourite colour to match your style.
One quick look at the runway and it’s clear that creative director Daniel Lee doesn’t think the Puddle Boot is simply for rainy days – for the show, he paired the statement footwear with everything from sequined gowns to suede fringed trousers and long trench coats – proving they’re as fashionable as they are functional.
The Bottega Veneta Puddle Boot is $650 and is available from today.
