There is nothing worse than saying someone is likeable, but not enough to care. It’s what I though when I first saw duck boots – practical, but not for the streets of London. Now I’ve changed my mind.
It’s an ugly name but surprisingly apt and they’ve been sneaking into peripheral vision for a while: Instagram pictures from NY, at the airport, on the slopes..even in an episode of Fortitude last night during a boxset binge (and if they’re the go-to shoe for those extreme conditions they must be doing something right).
They get a further tick for being unisex (well, at least some of the brands are) which is an itch itself that really needs to be scratched – tell me why can’t there be shoes with just the choice of wide or narrow to accommodate the whole population rather than only ever appealing 50%? The division of the sexes is too often a marketing ploy to separate us..and our hard earned money. I believe changing this simple thing would be a huge step forward (literally) in equality and world peace…

On a lighter note, when you really think about it, duck boots are the living proof that the skinnie will never die. Deep.
