Although it may be hard to believe for those in balmy, sticky and blazing hot climates right now, summer is already in full swing and fall/winter will be here soon enough. For those who like to get prepared early, Paris-based American goth-chic designer Rick Owens has you covered with these classic low boots. As the fashion house tends to skew towards more shadowy looks, it’s no surprise that the kicks come in a monotone black colorway. Featuring paneling at the heel and front that is finished with visible black topstitching, a matching black wedge sole, and zigzag grip, the distressed leather boots are laceless but feature two ribbed cotton loops at the top in order to assist the wearer in pulling them on. A staple item for fall, the Rick Owens shoes are available now over at LN-CC for around $1,300 USD.
