fall 09 runway
l: maison martin margiela
r: zero + maria cornejo
call it strange act of modesty, but designers are exhibiting coverage. albeit, foot coverage with shrinking minis, but boot sandal hybrids are seemingly a recent trend. flashes of skin, either the toes and heels, or the oh-so-modest arch of the foot, boot sandals are geometric with design in mind.
unexpected, definitely not strappy, a departure from season's-past booties, boot sandals offer surprising new forms of footwear.
