A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on the McQueen Skull Embellished Pump and I received some interesting feedback. While most of you liked the shape and design of the shoe, the skull embellishment seemed to be an issue. Alexander McQueen is not known for embodying conservative designs, and you guys are probably right – the Skull Embellished Pump is not practical for a mature shopper. So ladies, my mission today was to find you a practical McQueen shoe that could incorporate into anybody’s style of preference. My pick: The Alexander McQueen Lace-Up Leather Knee Boots.

Out of everything in the McQueen collection, this design is a rare instance in which there’s no skulls, challenging colors or patterns, taste-specific textures or crazy structures. This is the plainest of plan by the McQueen standards, which means it’s actually quite chic and wearable. Whether you are the edgy or conservative type, this simplistic style is adaptable for anyone. The rounded-toe, all-black leather boots come to the knee with and feature an approximate one-inch heel. To provide that little McQueen touch, the entire back of the boot laces up. It’s McQueen, things couldn’t be too simple. Buy yours today at Net-a-Porter for $1530.
