15 Of The Wackiest, Most WTF Looks From NYFW

15 Of The Wackiest, Most WTF Looks From NYFW

Even though NYFW is known for its outrageous street style bait techniques, the shows themselves are a pretty staid affair compared to Paris and Milan (especially, of course, the couture shows).

While it’s a consistent criticism of New York that homegrown designers don’t experiment enough, we saw some pretty valiant experimentation at the Spring 2014 shows–which occasionally resulted in balls out crazy, too.

Upon looking a little closer, we realized they were actually a Dr Martens’ version of chelsea boots, which we had never seen and found kind of surprising. The short, suctioned ankle boot was a staple of the mod scene and enjoys a resurgence about every ten years–also! when spray-painted glossy white, they’re the unofficial shoe of the Stormtroopers in Star Wars–so we decided now would be a good time to go looking for a pair. While window shopping over the weekend, we then noticed approximately 60,000* other girls wearing Chelsea boots. …Which means we have an exploding trend on our hands. Moreover, an “It” shoe that’s walkable and practical is about the only kind we can get behind. So, without further ado… More »
