Shoe Trends Fall 2010: Boots with the fur (with the fur!)
I couldn’t resist the Flo Rida reference in the title but, hey, it works when it comes to one of the big shoe trends for fall. Betty Wang, senior buyer of designer shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue, told the New York Times that fur boots are the hottest selling shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue right now, both fur-lined boots and boots with fur on the outside of the shoe. Although she references the pricey Jimmy Choo Yule and the Christian Louboutin Toundra, you can always apply the trend for much, much less. Fur-lined boots are always comfy-cozy, but today’s post is more about form than function; i.e. fur on the outside. I like the Sam Edelman Shalin (pictured above) because it uses quite an extensive amount of fur, but still manages to look sleek and stylish. You can get it at Karmaloop for $200 and apply coupon code SAVE20 for 20% off and free shipping, making them $160. Here’s some more fur styles, at moderate price points, that I’ve been checking out:
The Naughty Monkey D Lux for $79 at Shoes.com and $63.20 after applying coupon code VISA (exp. 2/28/11, may require Visa payment).
The Skechers Struts for $79 at Amazon.
The Bearpaw Kaska for $84.99 – $89.95 depending on size/color selection at Amazon.
Dolce Vita Tatum for $240 at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Update: Here’s another one I like, the Aldo Vanderau for $110 at Aldo.
Note that all of the boots pictured here are made of faux fur with the exception of the Dolce Vita pair.
