I have so many pairs of black ankle boots, and, still unsatisfied, buy at least one new pair every year. Sometimes I wonder if I've been put on this earth to determine who truly makes the most perfect ones.
If that is the case, I'm pretty sure these are it, at least in my eyes. I've been obsessed with Maison Martin Margiela's leather Tabi boots since seeing an insanely chic girl wearing the version with the separated toes on the subway with vintage Levi's a couple of years ago. She looked so cool, and while the the split-toe ones are a bit too cool for me, I've been lusting after the round-toe ones ever since.
I haven't quite reached a point in my life where I can afford them, but, luckily the brand produces them every season. So unless Galliano comes in makes some drastic changes to the brand's core footwear offering, they will one day be in my possession.
Maison Martin Margiela Leather Tabi Booties, $940, available at Shopbop.
