With news of a certain president elect having broken upon waking up, the launch of the Courtney Smith x Shoe Lab collab was a very much welcome distraction on Wednesday morning.
Courtney Smith is one of Ireland's leading stylists, a lovely person (with a lovely mother) and, now, a designer as well. This past week Buffalo launched their Shoe Lab collab with the stylist to great excitement and reviews.
The collection is comprised of seven pairs of boots, all inspired by figures from rock and roll history such as Stevie Nicks and Mick Jagger. In fact, the entire collection initially drew inspiration from the famous Bowie lyric, "We can be heroes". A lot of Courtney, and her signature edgy but polished style, is visible in the designs and I can see them appealing to many an Irish gal. This gal's personal favourite style has to be the lace-up Jagger boots that are all kinds of androgynous cool.
With prices starting at €155, you can find the collab online, in the Exchequer Street store and Arnotts but be aware that some styles have already sold out in some locations so you might want to jump on this fast if you're interested!
