I’m not talking about shiny, slick, bright-enough-to-see-your-reflection-in metallic—although there’s certainly a whole lot of that out there right now. I’m talking something more muted and burnished, maybe a bit weathered and not at all disco. These are from a collaboration between Coach and Frye. They might err a bit too much on the faux-busted-up side, but I find myself compelled nonetheless.
How about these? Too hipster astronaut?
See how subtle the shine on these is? Just enough to make a pretty tough boot come off a lot more feminine.
The cracked leather finish on these is such awesomeness that I feel I might be able to see my way to overlooking those unfortunate crystals on the heels.
