Tiffany Tuttle is a boot girl.
The designer behind Los Angeles-based brand LD Tuttle has a collection of primarily flats and low-heeled boots — too many to count, in fact.
Here, Tuttle dives into her closet for the FN 3.
1. How many pairs do you personally own?
“I prefer not to count, but it’s a lot! Although since I started LD Tuttle, I’ve stopped buying shoes. I have a bad habit of picking one or two new pairs each season and wearing them to death. After sixth months of nonstop wear, they usually look like a mess and end up getting shoved to the back of my closet.”
2. Heels or flats?
“Definitely flats or a low-heeled boot. I like our Ash boot — it’s a low-heeled, pointed-toe boot. It makes me feel a little more put together when I wear it. I don’t spend a lot of time in high heels, and you can see that reflected in my collection. I work in the Arts District, close to downtown L.A. So if I have high heels on in the neighborhood, I always feel very dressed up.”
3. If you were a shoe, what shoe would you be?
“I would be a soft, unlined flat boot with a big lug sole. I’m a pretty relaxed, no-frills person. However, I can also be pretty tough — during late-night phone calls with my factories in particular — so I would definitely have a big, heavy sole.”
