This seasons must have piece of footwear was the shoe/ boot or the shoot. I think for spring / summer 08 the Bandal is a great idea. Whats a bandal? Well it is the best word I can think of to describe the kind of boot like footwear I have seen at some of the spring / summer 08 shows. A sort of cross between a sandal and a boot or a knee high gladiator sandal. I have seen these at Givenchy, Etro and of course worn with the much discussed Balenciaga dresses.
I would really love to get myself a pair of bandals. Great for wearing with a summery mini dress and would work really well with the boho chic, floral prints or tribal trends for this summer. The bandal is ideal for those who love to wear a skirt with knee high boots but need a lighter alternative for summer.
I have yet not managed to find a reasonably priced high street alternative to the bandal but if do I will defintely be blogging about. If you know of one please let me know.
