This past Christmas, everyone who’s anyone in the fashion world had one particular item on their wish list: Saint Laurent’s US$10,000 disco boots. Or “the boots,” as they’re simply referred to among style-savvy types. Knee-high, handcrafted and sparkling with 3,000 rhinestones, the fit-forStudio-54 boots made their debut on the Saint Laurent catwalk in Paris in February. Street-style queen Rihanna was one of the first to sport them, so they’re definitely in with the cool kids. When they quickly appeared on Celine Dion and then on Cara Delevingne in Elle UK’s September issue, their status was sealed as the must-have footwear of 2017. We can only agree—these babies will do all the style talking you’ll ever need.
