ONE BOOT THREE WAYS: THE PERSEPHONE BOOT

Boots are a way of life in Portland, Oregon. Especially come fall, when the town’s foliage pops, the air gets chilly and the famous Rose City rain begins. It’s the time of year when a good pair of summer-to-fall transition boots are key. For example: the new Persephone Soft Buck. Made in a bright, autumn-perfect shade of wine, the boot’s chunky heels, contrast sole and padded ankles can be paired with almost everything — which the crew from our Portland store was more than happy to help us demonstrate.

How’d you wear the Persephone?

I wore an oversized Blizzard of Ozz Tee with shorts. The Persephone’s wine color complimented the red tones of my T-shirt, and the chunky heel accentuates my long legs. For my second look, I wore them with a mauve latex mini dress because I’m super into the leather/bondage/latex scene — but love to keep it a little glam since pink is one of my favorite colors.

Were there any challenges in styling it?

Anything that involves a chunky heel automatically makes my life easier, regardless of the color I’m wearing. Heels = my life.

Who do you envision wearing these shoes?

Anyone who needs an extra lift in life.

How’d you wear the Persephone?

I’m wearing the Persephone the way I would on a daily basis: with a pair of my favorite skinnies and a tied-up tee shirt. They remind me of autumn nostalgia: black coffee, rain and trucking to classes on a fresh morning. I’d most likely wear them to strut around school or for a night out. They’re mega confidence boosters.

Were there any challenges in styling it?

The one challenge with styling this boot is probably the padded collar, because I’ve never worn one before. I think it adds a casual vibe, so to me, they’re “every day” boots. And once taken into consideration, the color isn’t any trouble at all. Wine is a great neutral and will go with everything, if you let it.

Who do you envision wearing these shoes?

I envision any self-empowered woman, man, they or them wearing these. I always feel like my best self in a kickass pair of heels!

How’d you wear the Persephone?

With a navy jumpsuit from Anthropologie, a mesh crop and the black leather Dr. Martens backpack. I was going for something comfortable and versatile. You could totally wear these at work or for drinks after.

Were there any challenges in styling it?

I didn’t want to mask or clash how beautiful the wine is, so I went with outfit color blocking. The black laces and sole also make the shoe more versatile.

Who do you envision wearing these shoes?

Any and everyone can pull off this heel! From a young teen to an edgy adult, the Persephone speaks to all walks of life.
