I’ve always had a thing for biker boots. My personal style is feminine (although on a daily basis I’m more of a jeans/t-shirt/sweater kinda girl) but I love to add a touch of “rough” every now and then. I’ve always loved the biker boot and even when I wasn’t 100% ready to splurge on my favourite pair, I found a way to integrate it into my wardrobe within my budget (case in point).
A couple of years later, when I was finally able to afford more expensive pieces every once in a while, I went all in and bought 2 pairs of Fiorentini & Baker boots (these and these). They were still pretty expensive for my budget but I’ve gotten A LOT of use out of them and have never regretted buying them. To this day, I still love them both and am obsessed with making sure I don’t damage them, especially the ankle boots since I won’t be able to replace those (the classic biker version called the 713 Eternity is available year after year, I included it below, it’s the first one on the list). If I had unlimited funds, I’d definitely get a couple more… see below for my top picks!
By the way, if you ever do get a pair, they’re not super comfortable at the beginning (the sole is very hard) but it gets comfier shortly after (not sure if it gets worn in and therefore softer or if your feet get used to it…). Also, if you’re located in Montreal like I am, it’s pretty hard to get your hands on a pair. Only place I found them was online at the Gravity Pope boutique, but it appears the Fiorentini & Baker website delivers to Canada.
