Giuseppe Zanotti Daddy Saragein Over-The-Knee Boots in Pebbled Black Calf Leather
I always like to buy items opposite of the current season that we’re in to get major discounts. Yoox has fabulous sale prices for a lot of designer items that have been left over from previous seasons. They recently started their summer sale and I was lucky enough to have gotten an extra 10% off code. Not only so, no extra duties or sales tax for Canadians as they’re already inclusive in the sale prices. Of course, given that they’re deeply discounted, sometimes the items from Yoox are not perfect, eg. tags missing, original box, dustbag, or other packaging material may not be included. Nonetheless, the item itself is usually in perfect condition.
I’ve been looking for a pair of OTK boots for the last year, but nothing really satisfied me until I saw these Giuseppe boots. I wanted flat boots with a small heel, non-suede, all leather lined, no fancy embellishments, studs, or other junk design. So when I saw these boots in the only size left over, they were perfect I thought to myself! The boot design itself is Giuseppe‘s well known Daddy style which has been made into various textures and materials over the years. This OTK version is just fabulous with 100% leather construction – sumptuous pebbled leather on the outside, lined completely in smooth calfskin on the inside, and finished with a leather sole.
My only issue with these boots is that I need to have the shaft shortened a bit. I do think they’re a bit high for my liking.
