This bronzed effect ankle boot by Homers is so beautiful that it has me “shaking in my boots”, as they say. Readers of this blog already know how much I love interesting textures in shoes, but there is much more to this boot than just texture. The bronze colored leather with pink and silver undertones and cool stripe-patterned heel all help create this smashing exterior. This boot looks like it was bathed in the beautiful Mediterranean sunlight.
I’ve been a fan of the Homers brand for some time and I’m well aware of the great general beauty and solid craftsmanship of their designs. All Homers shoes come with a “Menorca quality” guarantee, which means that they are made by skilled artisans using premier quality leathers. Still, I was literally mesmerized by this bronzed metallic surface, which subtly changes color with the light.
The “Silvia” boot is great for the spring, very elegant, and it goes great with dark denim, as you can see from the picture above. I also picture them much more boho, paired with gorgeous white crochet dresses such as these by Adlib Ibiza:
Homers webshop offers delivery within the European Union (update: and now also to North America). Even though I cannot buy this stunning “bronzed” boot now, I like knowing that there are people out there, on the far away island of Menorca, that can make footwear as beautiful as that. Whoever buys this “Silvia” boot is buying her own personal piece of Menorcan sunshine. My love affair with Menorca and its shoemakers continues.
