The time taken to button and unbutton boots like this can be part of the pleasure, whether for the wearer or a significant other...

It's quite possible those are not "Sam Browne" studs, but the principle of the studs seems to apply: small stud, large hole/slit; so the button/stud is easily put into place by downward pressure. The button holes look to me extremely large and stitched with thread on a button hole sewing machine. However it was done, it appears there is no need for a button hook.

But for all we know, it's perfectly possible (to save the maid's wages) the whole metal work is simply decorative and there is a big zip on the inside of the boot. smile.gif


Sam Browne studs used in shoemaking:

What would be really interesting is if they were indeed shoe buttons. That would indicate that someone was making them again. Or could make them ...even if only by special request.

Here are some other shoes by TYE with stud buttons. Can`t tell if they are indeed the same hardware, but seems like it.

Those are definitely Sam Browne studs.

Chances are that the others are, as well.

Hey Nutcracker..... I always wonder how these boots will look like on the owner.

Just curious about this female who has such a refined taste.

Couture boots like that would look gorgeous on models walking on runways
But I can`t imagine anyone I know personally who may be daring enough to wear that on the street though biggrin.gif

I really like the hatched-sole on that model...I saw Kuji Suzuki doing something very similar at his trunk show in NYC...
