Halston’s ‘Cluny’ – the latest in a long line of cut-out boots


  Well, we wouldn't want to try to put these on in a hurry – and not just because we know we'd end up buckling them up all wrong, or because they'd leave our legs looking a bit like a zebra crossing from behind, but because… oh, just because. And look, we've tried, we really have. We've listened to those who describe the current trend for cut-out boots as "edgy" and "directional" and all that, and we still think they look like they've been butchered shortly before going on sale. They're not so much boots as partial boots. And, you know, for £995, we'd expect to get the whole boot, not just what was left of it after the designer got "creative".

What about you, readers? Are you buying the cut-out boot trend? If so, buy these ones, by Halston, at NET-A-PORTER

    I’d like them if they were closed apart from the buckly bit.
