Tough Love: Free People’s Exclusive Studded Boot Collection

April 26, 2012 • By Erika

Free People‘s new and exclusive studded boot collection gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “tough love.” All the designs are just so covet-worthy that we can’t help but LOVE all the TOUGH-looking boots!

The exclusive collection consists of popular boot styles from some established shoe brands. Some were originally studded, but some were breathed new life by adding a sprinkling of seriously stylin’ spikes and studs.

One of those “revived” styles is the “Denver” boots from Bed Stu. You can see the un-studded version in this previous trend-spotting post and compare it to the new studded design below:

Bed Stu “Denver” Studded Boots, $298.00

These Jeffrey Campbell boots already came studded, but what else can you expect from the always edgy Jeffrey Campbell?

If the grunge-inspired styles don’t appeal much to you, there are also styles like the lux leopard-print ankle booties thrown into the mix!

Sam Edelman Heartbreaker Ankle Boots, $198.00

Studs are really looking like they’re here to stay for good. Love ’em or loathe ’em, expect to see more of them in the near future of fashion.

You can shop the rest of this exclusive collection at Free People. What we’d like to know is who did all the studding on these amazing boots.
