Rag & Bone has created their signature boot in the "Classic Newbury" which you can find in almost any color and textile for the season. I have seen them in black leather, green suede, dark silver metallic crinkle and even flower patterened. There is a Newbury for every woman. When I tried these on in Nordstrom I was with my mother looking at shoes. She is in her mid 5os and was in LOVE with these...She has the same size foot as me but with many more years of wear and ballet she has trouble finding comfortable shoes that don't squeeze her bunion. Of course she thinks I am crazy for the height of many of my heels, so when she saw me trying on these 3" heels she had to try them for herself. She couldn't believe how comfortable they were, how well they fit her foot all around and although we have vaslty different shaped feet I agreed that their comfort and shape were perfect for my foot ... I think we have found the universal ankle bootie!
With all the choices out there its easy to pick the Classic Newbury in black leather or burgundy suede even the neutral, but I was shopping right before the holidays, feeling festive and embracing the world one foot in front of the other, so I chose the Rose Gold Metallic Crinkle. Rose Gold can be a tough color but I have started seeing it as the new neutral, and these are much easier to match than my rose gold studded jeffrey campbells . You can find them still in stores at Neiman Marus and Nordstrom but the rosegold can be hard to find.
You will be surprised to see how I dress these up and down for all occassions ... now I just have to figure out which pair to bestow upon my mother ...and the next to get myself ;)
