Alexander McQueen's Union Jack Boots
Posted on September 15, 2008
Alexander McQueen has done it again: look at these amazing British flag boots. Made of patent leather and suede, they feature the Union Jack so that you can loudly proclaim your love for all things British. They also feature a gold tone metal toe cap, just in case anyone gives you any guff about your Anglophilia. They are made in Italy and have insanely fabulous four inch stiletto heels.
What's that you ask? No, of course they won't be terribly comfortable, unless you're one of those women with a shortened Achilles tendon who is actually more comfortable in stilettos than in flats. What has that got to do with anything?
The Union Jack boots were originally available on Net-A-Porter for $1,260 according to Trendhunter, which has close-up photos of the boots.
The boots are no longer being produced but still show up on luxury closing retailers. You can see a product listing for the cool looking boots on The Luxury Closet.
