Hooked: Rick Owens

Fashion marches on, and in a season that tirelessly explored military themes, Rick Owens has just the footwear for fall. In fact, he said of the show that he could see how people will think of it as an army, which makes these Turbo wedge booties in oiled calfskin, with a rounded toe and an armor-like, horned heel, the new uniform for the toughest girls (and some boys) we know. And by toughest, we mean chicest. Yet the heel, while aggressive, isn’t too high and may even be practical. While you ponder that, let us delight the boys by informing them that similar styles come in their sizes. Owens is winning hearts and minds wherever he goes. $1,306 at Rick Owens in New York
