Most Wanted: Nicholas Kirkwood for Erdem Hiking Boot
All hail Nicholas Kirkwood. For Fall 2010, the mega-talented shoe designer turned out another hit collaboration—this time with Erdem, the exciting London line backed by Erdem Moralioglu. With Kirkwood’s knack for designing out-of-the-box footwear and Erdem’s signature 3D psychedelic prints, it’s no surprise that this meeting of the minds produced a boot that doubles as a work of art.
I love that they stayed true to the classic hiking boot style, with padded ankle support, a ridged rubber sole, and round-toe cap, but added smart touches like antiqued hardware and bright laces. And the silk “flutter” fabric completely seals the deal. I mean, who wouldn’t want to upholster her entire wardrobe in this rad print? Buy the boots here.
