Pictured above, Giuseppe Zanotti's black patent spike boots, $2,025 at Ssense, are a classic silhouette combat boot reinterpreted in glossy high-shine patent and to-die-for gold spikes of varying lengths.

I really don't understand the recent fad of having spikes all over your shoes. You could accidentally do some serious damage to yourself or your clothes...or someone else and their clothes. Oh, and they're seriously ugly.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days.
