My Thoughts

Beautiful black 'Ziggy' ankle boots by british based fashion designer Charlotte Olympia. The 'Ziggy' is an early style of boots which featured in Charlotte Olympia's Fall 2009 collection. Charlotte Olympia's initial collection was in 2008 at the London Fashion Week, making these boots quite rare, as the brand has grown rapidly in its 8 year existence. The boots feature the signature 'gold island' platform, and the Charlotte Olympia gold web logo on the sole. The front of the boots have an upper material made of soft calf leather, whilst the sides and rear of the boots are made of soft suede. The heel is made of patent leather and has a ribbed effect. The boots feature a gold zip with black tassel details, located where your achilles would be in the boots. The heel measures approximately 140mm (5.5 inches) and the platform measure approximately 30mm (1 inch). Due to these boots being one of Charlotte Olympia early styles, they were only available in full sizes. Women which would naturally be a half size (such as 37.5) would need to take the next full size up (such as a 38).

These boots would look great in any casual look. I have recommended pairing them with a simple graphic t-shirt and a pair of black skinny jeans. Singer and X-factor judge Cheryl Cole was spotted wearing these compelling boots to the X-factor studios London, in 2010. The retail price for the 'Ziggy' was $995 USD.

Recommend Pairing

Moschino Oversized printed cotton T-shirt - £115

Current/Elliott 'The Stiletto' mid-rise distressed black skinny jeans - £220

Saint Laurent Monogramme Baby leather-trimmed crocheted shoulder bag - £1,095
