Anouk Krueger started her career in fashion as a purveyor of hip, carefully-sourced gear — stocking her cheerful Malibu boutique with lines created by other Southern California designers. It wasn’t long before Krueger launched her own rough-hewn footwear collection inspired by boho style and world cultures. Many of Krueger’s sturdy lug- and wood-soled leather boots and shoes are influenced by equestrian gear: the Carmen, for example, is a riff on the classic Portuguese riding boot, and the Blanche reinterprets the traditional polo boot. Made only from super-supple leather and suede, Anouk footwear comes in a selection of earthy, classic shades such as black, tan, and deep burgundy.
Step up your footwear game with these seriously chic picks.
Finding the perfect fall boot is no easy feat—which is why so many chic women are partial to the wear-with-everything riding boot, and it's why we've assembled this far-reaching selection. Pull any one of these picks over your jeans for a sleek fall silhouette, or, for a girlier look, pair them with opaque tights and your favorite frock.
From fringe to slouchy, combat to equestrian, the boots from Anouk have a hold on our hearts and heels. Bohemian ladies will love the vintage-inspired motorcycle boots in soft suede. Tall combat styles with lace-up and buckle details add a twinge of Cobain-era grunge to this smart-looking collection.
Our go-to footwear for running around town? The super-chic boot. Who can resist the style-meets-comfort appeal — let alone the versatility — of a shoe that goes with everything from skinny jeans to mini skirts? Our roundup includes heeled booties, Western numbers, and bold iterations dressed up with artful stitching.
