Sandra Canselier, Coclico designer, is a French expatriate living in the United States. Since she couldn’t vote for Obama herself, she decided to name a boot after the president-elect.
Which she did. Here’s the pitch:
Coclico’s Obama boot was designed with high-fashion looks in mind. The shaft sports curved seams up one side and a hidden zipper entry on the other. The rounded, peaked toe works with the thick, tapered heel for a comfortable fit and stylish silhouette. Best of all, the vegetable-tanned leather will patinate over time — making this boot look even better with wear.
This color is called “bruciato”; there’s also a “piombo,” a sort of mottled grey. The heel is 3½ inches. The price for either variant is $535 at Coclico’s own Web site or at Amazon.com. I’m assuming you’d be able to get these with the help of some future stimulus check.
