Rick Owens has dropped a chunky sneaker-boot hybrid dubbed the Larry Tractor Sneaker for Fall/Winter 2019. The mid-top shoe sits atop a signature translucent rigged rubber sole unit, which elevates the simplistic military-indebted shoe into a daring avant-garde offering.
The sneakers come from the “Larry” FW19 collection, which takes its name from the American designer Larry Legaspi, a frequent source of inspiration to Owens who has worked with musicians like Labelle and KISS.
The Larry Tractor Sneaker sees an upper made from naturally-grained black calf leather and features a panel construction, segmenting the sneaker into defined sections detailed by thick, tonal stitching. Rick Owens’ sneaker is finished with eight gunmetal buckles on each side of the eyestay for lace fastening, khaki-hued laces and is clean of any branding – only the sizing and issue number is stamped in silver on the inside of the tongue.
For those looking to purchase the Rick Owens Larry Tractor Sneaker, head to retailers such as LN-CC where you pick a pair up for £865 GBP (approx. $1085 USD).
