Last September at the Lucky FABB conference I saw a fellow blogger wearing Cobra Society boots. I lunged at her, needing to find out who makes them. (Apologies to anyone jostled in this incident.) I burned the word “Cobra” into my memory and scoured the internet when I got home. At the time I found them only at Net-a-Porter. Now, unsurprisingly, I’m seeing them everywhere!
They were pretty much made for Coachella or whatever summer music festival might be on your schedule. The tall mustard numbers with cutoffs couldn’t made a more perfect fest uniform. The boots don’t come cheap! They’re handmade in Spain using kilim fabric created by female artisans in Morocco and vegetable-dyed leather from Italy. They are the real deal, no made-in-China shenanigans here.
The Cobra Society (I have to try really hard to not write The Cobra Snake every time) also makes gorgeous bags, men’s shoes and even a lighter, a “boot jack,” (which sounds luxurious for removing tall boots), a bronze serpent (sorry, sold out, but more coming soon!), and an amazingly tassled ligher cover (lighter included!).
Net-a-Porter still has plenty of styles left, and Shopbop (where the images here are from) seems to have a good amount of stock left, but if the fact that Cobra Society’s own site is out of pretty much all of their footwear is any indication, they won’t last long!
