Kiko Kostadinov's Harkman Shoe Is Multifunctional Footwear at Its Finest

By taking the top off the Jehtra boot, Kostadinov’s Harkman combines a sneaker with a boot’s sensibilities.

Aside from his work with ASICS and CamperLab, the London-based, Bulgaria-born fashion designer Kiko Kostadinov knows how to make a sneaker. Following on from this season’s Jehtra boot comes a new silhouette titled the Harkman shoe, sharing a similar design language to the boot while also serving a more daily-wear aesthetic thanks to its low-top approach.

Comparisons to the Jehtra start with the tadpole-esque rubber plate that graces the lateral and medial front-quarter panels, which appear in black across both the “Carbon Black/Sleet” and “Mosstone/Castlerock” colorways on offer. Additionally, the Harkman utilizes the same fastening strap as the Jehtra, wrapping over the shoe’s tongue and securing towards the collar with help from velcro.

A combination of mesh, suede, and leather work the shoe’s upper, with the paneling also resembling the aforementioned boot. So, we find a thick piece of suede on the toe, a toe box made from mesh, and leather constructing the majority of the shoe’s structural integrity near the mid-panel and collar, while more mesh and leather hit up the heel section for a comfortable and supportive fit.

Lastly, the same sole unit from the Jehtra graces the Harkman, meaning you get a full-length array of teeth that dig into the ground to offer traction. However, unlike the Jehtra, the Harkman is already selling out fast in multiple sizes — head over to The Broken Arm to pick up both colorways while stocks last. Kiko Kostadinov’s latest pair retails for $788 USD.
