How To Style This Thing: Balenciaga Knife Satin Boots

They're so sharp, you'll poke an eye out if you're not careful.
|

Balenciaga really struck gold with Demna Gvasalia. Every time we’re in Paris, we head to Balenciaga at the quickest chance we get because the new drops sell out in hours. Under Gvasalia, Balenciaga has released scores upon scores of wardrobe must-haves, from oversized shell parkas to checked blazers with crowd-clearing shoulder pads. But when it comes to fashion retail, nothing sells quite as well as the accessories. And the crowning glory of Balenciaga’s accessories? The sexy as heck “Knife” boot.

The “Knife” boot is essentially a sock boot, one of the most flattering types of boots in existence, so that’s already a plus point, but the real star of the “Knife” is its ultra-sharp toe, so sharp it probably could poke and eye out. It is equal parts sleek, sexy, edgy and dangerous. Is it any wonder Balenciaga saw fit to produce the “Knife” in different cuts, a variety of prints and colours, and in both satin and leather?

It is safe to say that we, along with everyone who has ever set eyes upon them, are obsessed. Because the satin black ones are finally in stock again, we’re taking them on for this week’s How To Style This Thing. Our girl Evangelie Smyrnotaki styled it with a sheer tiered ruffle dress and satchel, giving a killer street style walking shot. To prove just how versatile these shoes are, we’re dressing it down with a denim jacket as a top, cropped flared jeans and a side of statement accessories to keep things interesting. (If you’re looking for the boot in leather, here you go.)
