Tom Ford’s Fur Boots

  • Pin it

Tom Ford has decided to work on something less couture and more primitive. Back to basics for Mr Ford and his new fashion arrogance.

Fur Boots. Natural fur boots for your inner beast. Ah, pardon me, for your Mister’s inner beast. The fur boots are made for a luxurious Monsieur who’d like to walk around in $9, 240 or $5,250 boots. Or for a spoiled Junior who can run around in $4,470 kid fur boots. And that’s not for any running or walking around.. It’s for St Moritz or Gstaad, following Mr Ford’s description of his clients! “And when the snow falls/ You’re found in St Moritz/ With the others of the jet-set!” said the song… Not long before we’ll see those boots in respectable men’s magazines, worn by lovely mademoiselles wearing nothing but the outrageously luxurious boots and a glass of wine. For it’s cold, in St Moritz.. And people are cold too! Because I’m of curious nature.. How could you walk around in these, in the snow, and then wear them again? Luckily there’s also a Russian-like fur hat to turn heads to this collection to save the shoe-day!

Precious ridicule!
I’d add them to my Bonfire of Vanities list.

These boots are not for those who trudge through the snow. They are for those who are driven everywhere even by dog sled. They never walk. The Aspen set.

Not, its fur!
Not, the price!
Not my world…..

Tom Ford shouls use his own fur for those boots… Being ridiculous and promoting fur is sooo old-fashion…

Fur is death!

Too right. Interesting looking, but utterly impractical.

I’ve never seen a product that disgusted me this much. Dead animals melded into hideously ugly “boots”?

For the price of a yearly wage of a Mexican peon?

– I can see dropping 100K for a Porsche, becos it’s a physical beauty, and a spendid road machine. But 4k+ on fugly boots?

You stink, Tom. You are SO creepily disgusting with this offering to the rich and deplorable my fingers are itching to get away from the keyboard.

Tom Fords one of a kind, fox terrier, Angus ! If he shipped his fox terrier to china.. Tom Ford needs to experience the process of making of fur, since he wants to use it. I think anyone who buys a fur should be forced to pick out the animal of choice and then forced to watch the animals die for their clothing.
I love how the fashion industry markets these items, calling this “primative”. Perhaps, these people need to take a history lesson. Primative is when people would hunt for their own food and utilize every part of the animal for “survival”.
Fur clothing is bought by ignorant shallow celebrities and wealthy that are extremely “narcissistic”!

I like these, especially since they are real fur. But they are sooo ungodly expensive I wouldn’t dream of having them. And he probably should make a useable fur himself. I do it, and I kill my own deer. It’s too hard for anyone without a brain (and the critters) to do. You kinda need muscles too…

Live and love fashion, but unfortunately had to strike Tom Ford off my list when I saw his ugly fur boots. Tom, your not being ‘controversial’ for having fur, your just being cruel. If you’ve ever seen how much care an animal puts into their fur it’s amazing. They spend hours grooming themselves – because it’s their fur…It’s not ours! I know Tom has a heart, you can see it when he talks. I think if he watched one of these fur making processes in person (animals smarter than dogs put in small cages, and strangled, drowned, beaten etc..all for a one season wear coat ..), he would take the higher, much more difficult stand, and drop the fur! John Lennon didn’t become famous for following the war – it’s those that go against the grain we remember. Oh well, Stella McCartney turned down a job from him years ago for this reason, and she clearly hasn’t looked back haha (and is much richer)!
