Never apprehensive to merge delicate detailing in with its boot designs, visvim continues to contrast the rawness of work boots in with the refinements that many have come to expect from the footwear architects. The PLATTE BOOTS HI-FOLK is no exception. Crafted using African antelope hide, the heat-pressed, waxed upper appears to float atop its tooth-like Vibram ripple sole. Attention to detail is obvious as minor, yet methodical characteristics are present throughout the boot — from the Belgian leather heel stabilizer, bamboo shank, and even down to the breathable, internal linerless construction. Retailing at a price of ¥59,000 JPY (approximately $755 USD), the PLATTE BOOTS HI-FOLK can be found now at select visvim stockists.
