TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist. looks to the Wild West for a pair of Black Rios of Mercedes Edition Stars and Stripes Boots.
The cowboy-influenced boots are made from vegetable-tanned kidskin — the leather of a young goat — and feature star-shaped cut-outs throughout. Featuring silver detailing inspired by the metal spur on cowboy boots, the design is finished with a chunky gold zip and pull tabs.
The Western-themed boots sit atop a stacked leather sole and chunky heel, and altogether the boot rises midway up the calf for a truly traditional Wild West look. Takahiro Miyashita left no stone unturned when creating the Black Rios boots, with little details such as the peaked leather on the heel and the V-shaped collar.
With an overall slightly-creased worn-in look and tonal embroidery on the vamp, the Black Rios boots are available now at retailers such as SSENSE for $1675 USD.
