As soon as you look at these boots, you know they are Chanel with the tell-tale quilting. Chanel becoming hip is a relatively new phenomenon, as I can recall only old wealthy white ladies with gloves used to wear it. Outfits consisted of tweed suits, a proper hat and matching gloves. Either I am getting closer to that older lady milestone myself, or Chanel is appealing to a broader audience. I'd like to think the latter. I'm seeing many very young women wearing Chanel lately, although sometimes authenticity can be in question. This boot also comes in a shorter bootie style, but either way you can't lose. Find these boots at department stores such as Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
