Autumn, in spring? I am not sure I am getting the message here...
All the Europe is celebrating spring. May marks an end of it in Lithuania and other European countries. The nature is waking up, full of blooming daffodils, tulips and snowflakes, days are colorful and bright, it seems that the world is still celebrating Holi (the Indian color festival). However there is one place not like the others. It’s Australia.
As strange as it sounds Australian nature is slowly entering the state of peace and quiet, March was officially the first month of the Autumn there, so the weather is getting cooler, the wind is becoming a little breezier, and though the sun is still very bright it does not rise as high as it did in the summer.
The Fall Breeze Does Bring Some Changes, I Suppose?
What I really want to talk about is the footwear suitable for Australian autumn. Of course, there many usual options, such as clogs, moccasins, ankle booties or slip on shoes, but WoolWalker gives you one more. Original, fresh, strange and trendy – wool felt boots! They have pairs of wool boots for her and in boots in men's sizes as well.
These handmade booties are made exceptionally by hand combining felted wool and rubber soles. Wool fibers do great job regulating temperature, so this wool footwear without a doubt keeps the feet warm. But besides the warmth and the comfort there is a thing that calms the fashion bug – it’s the endless variations of mixing or matching the colors of those wool shoes.
Mix and Match
The minimalist form allows going crazy with colors without a risk to seem tasteless. You can always go bold and skip the color combos, by simply choosing the one that you love, for both: the rubber sole and the body (inside and outside wool colors). But at the same time you have the possibility to go bananas, add a trendy dash of airy blue, mustard yellow or aurora red to the already weird looking green or pink bootie. The only thing that could be even better would definitely be the swappable soles. As tricky as this idea sounds (and lets be realistic here, it might not be the most necessary) I bet that someday the WoolWalker will consider. For now, though, lets enjoy our freedom to mix and match easily. Let the imagination strive and stay tuned!
