These Boots Were Made for Drooling

07/28/2006 at 03:26 PM ET

Here’s one reason to rejoice the coming of fall. These Valentino boots from Bergdorf Goodman are simply hot. They’ll break the bank, but man, will they be a show-stopper. (So much so that you may have to consider just how many times you’d really be able to wear them.) It may be hard to think about strapping on knee-high boots when it’s 90 degrees out, but then again, MK Olsen and Michelle Williams have recently been seen wearing boots in the heat. I say crank up the A/C and make it work! — Julie Dam

Very cool — and so ’60s. Like something Audrey Hepburn would have used to kick around the South of France in “Two for the Road.”

great boots, but really only for minis i think. wouldn’t it be cool if the bow were detachable for those times when you want to throw on with your fave jeans?

Michelle Williams was mentioned in this piece but is that the Destiny’s Child member or the Dawson’s Creek/Brokeback Mountain actress?

As for boots in the summer, look on the streets of New York. There has not been a single day all spring & summer where I haven’t seen at least a couple of women (some days, much more than a couple) breaking the so-called rules and wearing them.

Is there anywhere we can find pictures of MK and Michelle wearing those oh so expensive boots?

These boots are very cute. I like the bow on the side because you can dress it up or down. Do they come in black??

I would not wear them but they are cute. I don’t like the bow though! Kinda tacky!

what a waste of $1400, Valentino lost me on this one, as well as Bergdorf for selling them…they look like they came from payless….eww

Hannah on

these boots are very cute! i love them, but i agree that they would probably only look good with mini skirts

Robyn on

these are so nice! i would totally get them if they were more in my price range. can you post a “save” vs. “splurge” for this??
