Opening Ceremony Footwear Fall 2009

I have a crush on Opening Ceremony that just can't seem to fade.  Even though my navy suede desert boots would nearly split my left pinkie toe open when I wear them, I just keep on reaching for them when I get dressed, as they magically go with everything from jeans to cropped khakis to even shorts!  

Dearest desert boots with your now rippled uppers, how much longer will it take to break you in?

I heart Opening Ceremony so much that a few weeks ago I wrote an ode to their online store that was more than a few scrolls long.  My adoration for the label was nothing short of intensified when I saw their fall 2009 footwear offerings:

Opening Ceremony Men's Shoes Fall 2009

The downfall of many a good brand comes when they choose to capitalize on a classic, tweaking their bestseller style to little success.  (Read: Fendi)  But these new incarnations of the original desert boot above really work for me, perhaps because they bring a new vibe to the shoe, a new character and a new silhouette; they're just not an over-embellished or downright ugly mutation of the classic.  

My favorites would have to be the burgundy suede desert boots in the center (I've never seen push-lock buckles on a shoe done so successfully) and the black boots with the four turn-lock buckles on the lower left (they'd look just perfect with cuffed almost-skinny trousers).  I wouldn't mind the pink suede classic desert boots, or the plaid ones.

my vote goes to the simple slip ons towards the bottom.
the spy bag is still my dream bag, but the version is pretty ugly.
