Boot Up

Footwear News - - INSIDER - — S.H.

Alexan­dre Vau­thier is one of few shows where you can guar­an­tee that there won’t be a flat in sight, let alone a sneaker. Vau­thier works with shoe de­signer Amina Muaddi, and FN caught up with her af­ter the Paris Haute Cou­ture show last week for a de­brief on the col­lec­tion’s footwear. “Alex is a mas­ter of the boot,” she said. “He has amaz­ing ideas that we put in prac­tice, and this sea­son, he wanted a soft thigh-high boot that you can style high or low, pulling it up or down al­most like a pant.” There was also a new heel sil­hou­ette for fall that was shaped like a ra­zor. “Alex al­ways wants to do stilet­tos,” said Muaddi, “but I found some­thing dif­fer­ent he was happy with — still fem­i­nine but stronger and more fierce.”
