Step into the Rainey Lace-Up Boots, an everyday walking boot well-suited to any dandy wardrobe. Designed in collaboration with Dandy Wellington, these buttery-soft Balmoral boots feature a fitted ankle, relaxed ball of foot, and the Dandy logo stamp of sartorial approval on the heels.
The Rainey is dedicated to the “Mother of the Blues” vocalist and bandleader Ma Rainey, a queer trailblazer who performed all over America influencing the likes of Louis Armstrong and Bessie Smith. Her extravagant style and deep gravelly voice earned her a recording contract with Paramount where she recorded 94 titles.
