Now that the cold weather is upon us, discerning fashion fans are reaching for their trusty flat boots, the wardrobe staple that effortlessly blends comfort and style - and hides the not-so-stylish thick, wooly socks that are needed to keep your feet warm. And there is one now iconic boot that, regardless of trends, always make a reappearance - Vivienne Westwood's Pirate boot.
This week we have spotted three of our style crushes sporting the boots. Kate Moss and Sienna Miller have long championed the style - remember the duo stepping out in them during the boho-chic era years ago? - and now both have once more reached for their favourite footwear. And Agyness Deyn, who we can always rely on to have her finger on the fashion pulse, has been wearing them in New York.
And no wonder. The pirate boots, with their signature slouch and multiple straps, are not only a classic design but fit neatly into the punk vibe that fashion is embracing this winter - Vivienne Westwood was the original creator of the look after all.More
