Sergio Rossi and the technicolour dream boots

Sergio_rossi_bootsBright enough for ya?

Every January, presumably in reaction to the greyness of the days, fashion magazines and websites start filling up with lots of very colourful items, which allow their writers to make the observation that the colourful items will help “cheer you up” during the New Year slump. In fact, we’ve done it ourselves.

We’re wondering, however, whether these Sergio Rossi boots may be a step too far. Sure, they’re bright. Yeah, they’re colourful. But do you love these boots of many colours? Or do they make you want to poke your eyes out with a sharp stick? Tell us!

(If you do love them, get them at NET-A-PORTER.

    I do not love these boots…If they were rain boots, like the ones everyone wears on my school’s campus, they MIGHT be ok…But as they are…they are ugly.

    I think they’re actually kind of badass.
    And this is coming from someone who dresses almost exclusively in black and darker jewel tones.

    Strangely enough, I love them, and I hate all things bright and colorful and pink (I love bright or dark blues and reds but hate pastels.) I can’t imagine buying them–they wouldn’t go with ANYTHING I own, not even jeans, but there is something about them. I suspect the sales on these will be people like me (but with more money to burn than I do) who fall in love with them and then never actually wear them.

    There is no way I can look at these without thinking ‘wellies with heels’.

    I… kind of like them. If they were rainboots, I’d buy ’em in a heartbeat.
