A well balanced boot

The gold buckles hold together matt-finish brown leather straps that have wrapped themselves over and around a black, faux crocodile leather boot. The heel is wooden, the sole leather, the lining shearling. In essence, these are some of the most perfectly balanced boots that we’ve featured on Fashionising.com this year. Normally the inclusion of shearling would mean references to the women’s military clothing trend, and while these Rupert Sanderson boots would certainly compliment such a look they are by no means pigeon holed to it. I surmise that that has less to do with their styling, and more to do with the fact that their attention grabbing quality, the mere reason we featured them today, is that these are boots whose overtness is their quality. Something that sits in stark contrast to the eye-catching footwear that might otherwise have featured in their place.

Such balance should be expected of Rupert Sanderson given that his design philosophy is that “less is more.” So too should quality be expected, Sanderson being a Cordwainer who has previously worked for the likes of Sergio Rossi and Bruno Magli.

The boots in concern are the Rupert Sanderson shearling boot. They’re available from Browns for 835.00 pounds sterling, while a selection of his other pieces are available from Net-A-Porter.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
