The black pair is a more understated look, and could be dressed for day or night
Fashionistas Linda Tol and Jamie QQ Wu were also snapped at the Kurt Geiger event in identical white shoes, although they dressed them different.
They also come in a more classic black, for those looking for a more understated look.
The eyelet lace up is purely decorative, as the boots have a concealed zip on the inside, making them easy to slip on and off.
And the comfortable kitten heel means they’re a versatile piece which can be easily dressed from day to night.
At £199, they’re an affordable investment piece for the average shopper, but the price point will also ensure that not everyone will have the stylish shoe.
The lace up style of the boot adds a grungey style to the lighter colours of spring, and is a popular trend this season with many fashionistas stepping out in similar styles across fashion weeks.
