Arise Magazine Fashion Week might have come and gone but all the fashion trends are safely stored in our heads. As fashion evolves and  designers pop up from left, right and center, designers are always looking to find innovative ways to stay on top of their game.

A new trend has hit the streets of menswear. It chic, fresh, funky and very street-wear. It’s the painted boots as seen at Petrou/Man A/W 2012 collection showcased in Lagos at Arise Magazine Fashion Week recently. The hand painted boots create that grunge look and the dash of color is great for spicing up a dull look and adding that pop factor. There’s a sense of originality behind them too, making them even for fashionable.


Petrou/Man gets a yes from me for the painted boots. What are your thoughts on this trend, would you wear it?
