Rainy days, rainy booties

I am in Italy during these days and the weather suddenly changed in the last couple of days.  I feel cold but not too cold, luckily this means that I don’t have to wear scarfs-hats-gloves! However, the rain has been pouring down for days, so what I really need to wear are my dear rainy booties! I confess that for me it’s very hard to wake up early in the morning and be ready in a few minutes…especially when outside there is a seemingly never-stopping rainstorm…
The question is: how to avoid rain and
 being presentable even with this weather? Hard but not a real problem after all, because today we have lot of chances to appear stylish even with rainy boots at our feet. A considerable number of fashion companies are realizing new lines of shoes in new materials like polyurethane, fur and wool to make your snowy/rainy days sooooo comfortable and diverse. Suits, jeans or mini skirts will be coordinated and trendy at the same time with the right boots, with your favourite color and shape, with heels or embellishments.  Wide choice and different models. Feel free to go wherever you want in a perfect shape without wet feet or dirty shoes! Rain is pleasant sometimes…

That kind of shoes every man should have

Pitti Uomo is a very interesting fashion event, every year it gives me a lot of inspirations about men’s fashion and obviously.. about men’s shoes!  During the last 85th edition, what I realized -looking at the fashion shows and at people on the streets- is that today it can be easy to be trendy just by using a little intelligence, choosing the right piece or just changing a detail (a shoelace for example) without spending moneymoneymoney. Having style is not a question of money, you know .. anyway .. if you can buy things.. good for you ;)! Considering shoes, I selected some basic models that I think every man (but also woman since these are unisex models!) should collect in his closet (boots- sneakers- derby- loafers)! These are very beautiful shoes when you buy them already but become trendier getting older and older! But this is another story and another post…
