The Look: Track Star

Zipper details——both functional and cosmetic——are on the fast track to become the leading hardware embellishment for Fall ’15.

The closure packs some rebellious spunk to styles spanning tough as nails sneaker/boot hybrids from Cat Footwear to preppy tweed kicks by Kim & Zozi. Other styles, like Pskaufman’s super sleek blue burnished men’s boot, showcases the grips’ refined style.

Metal teeth have grazed sandals, boots and ballet flats for a number of seasons, mainly as one continuous, decorative coil that snakes around outsoles and across toes, but this season the trim is softened with warm knits, rounded toes and soft suede uppers.

Just look at the quirky ankle boot from Patrizia by Spring Footwear (pictured above). The boot begs for an oversized sweater, a cup of hot cocoa and cozy spot near the fireplace.
