A rather unexpected novelty for such a brand, but it seems that everything that the creative director of the fashion house Daniel Lee touches turns into a hit. The Puddle boots are no exception.

Streamlined shape and seamless construction of Bottega Veneta's Puddle Boots are complemented by the signature volume rounded toe. The imitation of side panels refers to the Chelsea boots.

Perhaps one of the main features of The Puddle Boots is the material they are made of. Biodegradable polymer. When recycling under appropriate conditions, boots can decompose into natural products in a short time with no harm to the environment.


At Bottega Veneta Fall 2020 show, held last February at the Fashion Week in Milan, it was demonstrated that rubber boots can also be a perfect addition to an evening dress.

The Puddle boots in Lollipop color peeked out from under the hem of a striking red floor-length dress, heavily embroidered with sequins. Bright Kiwi boots matched perfectly with extreme fringe of a skirt and a long ribbed cardigan.

In men's looks, The Puddle Boots were seen to be worn with a discreet trench coat with a clear shoulder line and narrow sleeves, as well as under slit trousers and a sleeveless coat, made in large weaving of an hypertrophied size using the Intrecciato signature technique.

Daniel Lee described this collection as a desire to combine "super-formal and street". And he did it very well.


Many celebrities, bloggers and fans of the brand demonstrate how to wear The Puddle Boots in urban scenery, outdoors or at home.

On her Instagram page, the famous model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley shared what to wear with rubber boots in her #lockdownlooks collection. She complemented black The Puddle Boots with a classic gray tracksuit and a light-colored weightless coat. The Mini Jodie handbag of the same color as the boots was the striking accent of the look.

In the times of pandemic, comfortable outfits are quoted higher. Yet it's a pity that sometimes they can only be tried on at home.
