Off the heels of its honeycomb-woven Obliques unveiled just yesterday, ROA is back with yet another bold take on one of its signature silhouettes. A rugged pair of gray Andreas boots has been dipped in dark brown rubber for a striking two-tone effect, offering both style and functionality for those looking to get the best of both worlds.
The top of the boot boasts muted gray nylon uppers, complemented by crisp white batting that fortifies the fabric with durability. To offset the gray shade, crisp white rope laces cover the central forefoot, looped through a series of gunmetal-toned eyelets. At the rear is a black ripstop heel tab that protrudes from the lower heel counter, while smooth beige leather lines the padded interiors. The bottom half of the shoes feature glossy overlays of solidified dripping rubber applied during production. The result is a sleek rubber layer that weatherizes the lower half of the boots, covering the shoe’s essential Vibram sole that offers optimal traction and support.
ROA’s gray Andreas Hiking Boots are currently available at SSENSE’s website for $600 USD.
