Manolo the Columnist: Aden from Delman

By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.

Dear Manolo,

I’m a 20-something Brooklyn girl in search of the perfect leather boot. I need something that will be perfect from fall to spring, something that I can wear uptown to work, downtown to play, something that can stand up to miles and miles of walking around Manhattan without killing my feet. I’m back on my feet after a layoff and happier than ever, so I’d like to celebrate with an appropriately practical, classic, and useful purchase, and I need your help!

Manolo says, this heartfelt plea poses the serious philosophical question: is there such the thing as the perfect boot? Can one boot meet all of our many and varied boot-wearing needs?

The Manolo must answer, no, there is no such thing as the Platonic perfect-for-the-every-occasion boot. This is why God invented the shoe closet, so that we may store our perfect-for-walking-around-Manhattan boots next to our perfect-for-working-uptown boots, while we are wearing our perfect-for-downtown-playing boots.

Happily, although ultimate perfection may be beyond the reach of mortals, there are still good, general purpose boots which will satisfy most of your day-to-day needs. Here is the Aden from Delman, one such low-heel, knee-high, classic that will serve many of your needs.

    I have a pair of boots with a similar (from JCrew) and wear them to work, on the weekends, to school, with pants, dresses, out at night…for everything! I love my boots so much that my boyfriend jokes around all saying that he expects me to go to bed with those boots on because I never want to take them off!
    I love the zipper detailing in the back of Delmans. Great choice Querido Manolo!

    Those are exactly the boots I wanted in brown!!!

    But I bought a pair of Ecco boots instead, for cheaper.




  3. Laura K Says:

    I love my Sudini boots! They have a higher (but still practical) heel and they are perfect for walking around Manhattan.

    Ooh I like this blog, it’s so awesome, I’m a London girl who is tragically poor but pretends she is tragically rich, and the one thing on my mind is always shoes, shoes, shoes… I just started a gossip girl-style blog under the name of Sabrina Suburbia about life in the English suburbs, but as of yet have no followers (sigh…)

    I’d love for you to check it out!
