The fashion troops were out in full force during Paris fashion week accepting heavy security as the new normal. Thick-soled, heavy duty tailored brogue footwear facilitated running around the city from one venue to the next. And those who did not yet own a pair of these new comfort looks had plenty of opportunities to stock up in the local shops. Patent and metallic leather and new hardware details added the fashion seal of approval to these city stompers.
