Anna-Sui-Sorel-boots.jpgOur good friends over at Nollie spotted these awesome weatherproof boots from Sorel, which have been enhanced with an injection of style from Anna Sui. The designer, who has already collaborated with Fitflops on functional fashion fusion has a distinctive style that lends itself really well to these girly-yet-tough calf length walking boots.

What's great about these boots is the attention to detail that Sui's input has brought: seen up close, the brass studs that hold the boots together are fashioned into Anna Sui's signature rose motif, and the purple theme that runs through the boots from laces to sole looks amazing against the quilted leather uppers. The boots launched yesterday in Japan, and are all marked with unique serial numbers. In the meantime, if you can't wait for them to appear closer to home there are plenty of Sorel boots available in the UK, including the popular 'Joan of Arc' style, around which Sui's boot is based.
