Maybe I should start by saying, I’m not totally sure I like these boots…
At least, I don’t like them for me. The Bottega Veneta Tire and Flash Boots are just too big and chunky for me, personally. But when I see them—and they’re popping up everywhere—I’m always intrigued by the idea. (And I think a lot of people really pull them off, too!) I really like the idea of a black boot with a contrast sole. Even before I realized how many colors they came in, I thought, Ooh what if the sole was pink? Or a light purple? Still, for me, I’d want them to be a little more streamlined. I’d also want them to not cost $1,200.
So, whether you want the look of the Tire and Flash Boots for yourself or are also interested in something similar, but different, here’s what else is out there.
