After dropping the eclectic Maximal Runner sneaker in an eye-catching burgundy and blue colorway, Rick Owens returns with another footwear release in the form of the black Bozo Chelsea boot.

Crafted with strips of rubber, layered to replicate strappings of tape, this boot is said to be a reflection on the designer’s love for innovative textural play. With elasticated side gussets, a heel pull and black leather lining, the Bozo is a reworking of the classic Chelsea boot shape.

Made in Italy, the boots feature silver staples at the heel to enhance the subversive slant, a round toe finish and a sturdy and durable black rubber sole.

The Rick Owens Bozo rubber chelsea boots are available now from MATCHES FASHION retailing from £740 GBP (approximately $800 USD).

In other news, Maison Margiela’s replica Super Bounce have been given a luxe iridescent bubble makeover.
