Portugal’s Valini creates these two boots, called the 8 Eyelet boots, exclusively for Japan’s Nanouniverse. The boots come in two colors, black and brown and are both done in suede and are touched up at the toe to provide a feeling ware and tear which gives a bit of character to the boots.
Boots can be hard to wear in the heat of spring and summer, so for its 2010 lineup, Opening Ceremony goes with some lightweight, all-weather pieces. Light colors and soft leather construction makes the lace-ups and low-cut boots practical for summer evenings, while heavy suedes and leather make the clunkier boots a great choice for the dying days of winter and early days of summer. Release is planned for January of 2010.
