Few high-end footwear options elicit as non-obstructively superior of a fit response as these elegant—and admittedly toned down for the brand—boots from Giuseppe Zanotti Design. Constructed out of 100 percent calfskin leather in a sleek design—a sharp silhouette that towers with a 1 in. raised heel—the shoes quietly whisper “I have more money than you do,” without falling onto gauche branding elements that others of the same price point readily turn to for evidence. Instead, the Clarkes’ leather canvas contrast against the pair’s only embellishment, a gold pyramid above the ankle, for restrained power and subtle style.
