First it was sneakers, now it’s boots.

After refining the timeless high-top sneaker for his first-ever foray into footwear with this summer’s “Season 7.5” capsule collection, John Elliott is back with a brand new boot ahead of the transition into fall. Streamlining a rugged, timeless classic, Elliott’s take on the prototypical combat boot gives the silhouette a sleek, refined edge that makes it one part sleek dress shoe, one part ass-kicking high-top. Handcrafted in Italy and lined in calfskin, each pair employs a speed lacing system while indentations below the padded collar allow the wearer to easily wrap the laces around the ankle for an even more snug, supportive fit.

Capped off with rubber soles and included dust bags, Elliott’s version of the iconic combat boot is available online now in either black leather or waxed grey suede for $498 USD per pair.
