After releasing its clear-soled derby shoe last month, Prada has focused on other creative footbed solutions for the silhouette – a set of leather boots and derbys with a chunky Wheel Sole.

Graced with black leather uppers, the footwear pieces are constructed with tonal stitching, eyelets and laces that add sleek outlooks to the classic silhouettes. The Black Wheel Sole Zip Boots comes with a long zipper on the medial sides that stops at the midsole, a modern adjustment to the traditional mold for easy on-and-off. The defining highlight of the piece is its thick treading, bearing a close resemblance to that of the treads on a tire with its large rubber ridges. Curved diamond-shapes are etched along the middle of the sole, curving up slightly to the toe cap. The derbys are also equipped with the rubber footbeds, coming in iterations of black and green.

Prada’s Wheel Sole footwear pieces are currently available on SSENSE.COM for $820 – $950 USD.
