Kiko Kostadinov's FW21 Jehtra Boot Gives Off Amphibious-Utility

Is it just us who thinks the rubber overlays look like tadpoles?

Despite Kiko Kostadinov‘s success with his eponymous label, the designer is better associated with his work with ASICS — but that doesn’t mean his in-house footwear should be overlooked. Take this new pair of Jehtra boots for Fall/Winter 2021 for example — not only are they a step-up visually from SS21’s Renaissance-inspired Chelsea boots, but they also go to show the designer’s more technical side (which he explored with his work with AFFIX).

The boot itself is served up in a colorway called “Dragonfly,” sporting a dark grey mesh base that’s overlayed with grey and black rubber, grey leather, and green leather. At the front, we find a wavy, almost tadpole-like rubber designer that overlays the mesh on the front-quarter, leading the eye towards the mid-panel where you’ll find the green leather section that connects to-and-around the tongue.

That tongue is made from mesh and features green rubberized Kiko Kostadinov roundel branding alongside rope laces that have been covered by the asymmetrical fastening strap. A touch of black leather hits up the rear-quarter before more tadpole shapes grace the rear, while a thick, curvaceous, black sole unit rounds out the pair.

Kiko Kostadinov’s Jehtra boot in “Dragonfly” retails for £540 GBP (approx. $750 USD) and can be bought from stockists such as Dover Street Market London now.
