This is the first week in New York I have pulled out my sweaters and wool scarves for the fall season. It’s cold with a tinge of warm, but lord knows in a few months it’ll be FREEZING. Last year I bought a cute pair of lace up booties from Aldo which lasted me all winter long. So naturally when invited to the Aldo x Cristian Cota event to preview the new collection, it was a no-brainer to go. Aldo Rise has been around for a few seasons, they work with emerging designers to create shoes to go with their clothing collections for the runway. Christian Cota’s boots debuted last night and I have to say they were fun. Red pony hair with buckles and faux shearling lining? Warm! And not your ordinary black boot.
