One benefit of being a fashion editor is having friends who are just as clued-in (if not more so) when it comes to the latest must-haves. Over the weekend, I met up with a friend in NYC, and my eyes went instantly to her cool boots. Her all-black hiking boots had soles that were ideal for trudging through post–snow day sludge, and it turns out they were fleece-lined too. When I asked her where she bought them, I fully expected them to come with a hefty price tag, but to my pleasant surprise, she smiled and replied, "They're from H&M."
I wasn't the only one who was intrigued by these $80 boots. Upon getting to the office on Monday morning, I looked them up online, and two of my fellow Who What Wear editors added the shoes to their virtual shopping carts. Clearly, a good fashion find outweighs the prospect of showing up to work in the same outfit. If our reactions to these cool shoes are any indication, they won't last long.
