What... a pair of Valentino Garavani Atelier Boots.

Why... Because whilst these rainboots are practical, they're also absolutely beautiful.

Long gone are the days where wellies would be exclusively worn at festivals or on countryside walks; fashion folk have made them the boot of choice for the past few seasons. It's no surprise that this street-style trend has found its way into the echelons of high fashion – and oh, aren't we glad it did. 

Amongst the many iterations that have caught our eye, this Valentino pair has fully caught our attention. Blending traditional motifs of the fashion house with an en vogue shoe style, the Atelier Boots Valentino Garavani are as inherently Valentino as they are modern. This is evident through its design. The blooming rose – which for Mr Valentino was not only a symbol of the artistry of couture, but a token of timelessness, cultivation and the endurance of beauty – is 3D printed onto each boot, which collectively makes for around 400 petals across the pair. Made with waterproof rubber and inhabiting an ergonomic insole, these boots are made for walking come rain or shine.
