Since the advent of the mink lined Birkenstock, a design miracle from the genius mind of Phoebe Philo, furry sandals have become something of a status symbol, and a great shoe for extravagant people that don't really care to dress by seasonal norms. We all know Rihanna and Miley can pull off the trend on a light day, but how do the rest of us get in on it? Enter Brother Vellies—the South African-manufactured NYC-based shoe maker that revolutionized the traditional desert boot—whose fall 2015 collection masterfully gives the finger to the polar notions of summer and winter apparel. With over 40+ styles in the range, including curly shearling slides and plush sherpa-ready d'orsay flats, there's sure to be a furry fabrication to match any sartorial skill level. Browse the entire gorgeous collection online and at their flagship location, 4 Fulton Street, in NYC.
