BG Obsessed: The Boys are Back
On adding bravado to our brogues
Every season there are just a few things — a certain shoe, bag, shape, a single must-have item — which define the moment. And when it comes to your soles this fall, walk like a man. Whether it’s a Beatle boot, oxford or point-toe brogue, let men’s footwear inspire. Echo Kenickie and Zuko’s greased up, leathered up look with a Jimmy Choo moto-boot (visit 5F during Fashion Week this September for our Jimmy Choo Biker Bar), channel history’s favorite brit boy band via a femmed up Laurence Dacade. Want to be the mother wolf of Wall Street? Lace up your cap-toe Miu Mius.

Even the Fall Collections had a menswear moment: half of Dries Van Noten’s runway looks were carried by pairs of shiny, gum-soled lace-ups (212 872 8947) while the ladies of Lanvin and Marni were seen sporting patent-leather lace-ups. So whether it’s a smoking slipper from Stubbs & Wootten (available exclusively on 5F, 212 872 8941), Givenchy’s skater sneaker or a patent leather oxford from Christian Louboutin, man up and give your shoes a little sartorial swagger.
Want something more femme in silhouette? Consider menswear fabrications from Dior, Dries Van Noten and Paul Andrew.
