You can always count on Serhat Isik and Benjamin Alexander Huseby‘s label GmbH to serve sensuality, sex, and class in one cohesive and polished collection, and Spring/Summer 2022 was no exception. Take its Ergonomic Riding Ankle Boot in “Black Pleather” or “Blue Denim,” which combines that underground Berlin clubbing scene aesthetic of leather and metal exquisitely with formal traditional cues and contemporary engineering, once more channeling GmbH’s love for decoding menswear norms.
In “Black Pleather,” the Ergonomic Riding Ankle Boot sports a mid-top design intersected by an asymmetrical zipper made in silver-tone metal hardware, accenting the uppers elegantly while a metal-clad heel sticks out at the rear in an avant-garde manner. Here, GmbH’s logo can be found engraved into the heel, while more branding adorns the pointed zipper pulls on the uppers.
Much is the same on the “Blue Denim” iteration, only here the design appears softer and eschews that underground Berlin aesthetic GmbH often taps into. Regardless of the version you choose, the Ergonomic Riding Ankle Boot will set you back £455 GBP (or $510 USD), and both can be bought from Machine-A in-store or online now.
