Rick Owens 2011 Fall/Winter Sneaker Boot
Rick Owens has remained an innovator in the realm of men’s fashion, originally causing a stir with his first foray into footwear by rebelling against the ultra-slim sneakers of the time and creating his signature “sneaker boot.” A chunky, heavyweight, side-zipping high-top, the silhouette has brought Owens much success and finds itself undergoing a classic redesign in its 2011 fall/winter iteration. Featuring all-black leather uppers, a thick rubber sole and a shiny chrome zipper, the kicks’ defining feature is a white rubber cap toe reminiscent of an even more iconic American sneaker brand. Made in Italy, the shoes comes with an additional set of black laces and a Rick Owens cloth tote bag for storage. Available now for £600 GBP (approximately $968 USD) over at oki-ni.
