“Cross-country skiing is great if you live in a small country” Steven Wright
December has arrived, and at least in the Northern hemisphere, if it evokes a fat guy dressed in red, it also suggests the meteorological phenomenon known as snow. Named after a ski resort, the “Whistler” boots have recently joined my collection of Dsquared2 footwear.
Whistler is in British Columbia and is the location of one of the largest ski resorts in North America. It hosted one of the venues for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Just see for yourselves on the photo below, the dream like quality of the setting!
Made by Dsquared2 SPA rather than through licensing, the boots bear the D2 DNA in being classic yet quirky, classy yet casual, and having this characteristic high heel and sole. To avoid an accident that happened with my “Asylum” boots, which have the same sole (a heel fell off), I am getting a renowned cobbler to nail the heels. On the asylum boots he managed to do it from the inside, under the inside sole, which is then invisible and secures the whole thing. For some reason he decided to do it from the outside on these (see below).
