Daring by Charles DavidDaring by name, and daring by nature are these new dark cherry boots from Charles David. The tag-line is “classic handcrafted boots for a modern take on fall” and we’re struggling to improve on that. On the one hand these boots have classic, elegant contours like sculpted versions of riding boots but there’s also a modern looking self-covered 1 inch snakeskin platform.

The boots have Halloween written all over them, and the possibilities are endless. We can see Daring dressed up with a short pink dress to make a saucy, modern day Lady Penelope from the Thunderbirds TV series. Staying with that era, the boot could certainly be used to spice up an I Dream of Jeannie costume or perhaps Samantha from Bewitched. The only limits are your own imagination.

Charles David bootsThe darling, Daring 5 inch high heeled boot is made of leather, suede and snakeskin and is new to Charles David for Fall / Autumn 2012. It is fastened with a back zipper and retails from the designer’s site for $398.
