TEACH AN OLD BOOT NEW TRICKS M any have tried, but no one has made a rain boot as iconic as Hunter. The 160-plus-year- old British footwear company seamlessly blends fashion and function with a signature style that never falters — one of the reasons these boots are such a great investment. We love the Hunter Creators series, an ongoing collaboration with modern artists who give their own spin to the classic slim silhouette for an extremely limited run of one-of-a- kind boots. The latest artist in residence is Dallas-based Sam Lao. "I predominately work in fibers, so when they contacted me, it was very much a case of 'This seems cool, but I don't know how I'm going to do this,'" says Lao, who was literally lacing up her custom Hunter boots as we spoke. "But I did end up finding a technique and design that I feel has the essence of my work while also being a wearable piece of art that people can collect and really love." Only 30 pairs in this series will ever be released; each has been customized by hand, making each pair truly unique. Hunter X Sam Lao men's and women's original short rain boot $225, at Caitlin Clark OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. KIPS BAY NYC IS BACK!
