Gucci may be undergoing an eclectic renaissance under Alessandro Michele, but that doesn’t mean that everything he touches has to have a baroque pattern or an embellished buckle. Case in point: these sturdy boots that would look more at home on Jay Z than the waifish men in the brand’s Wes Andersonian ad campaigns.
Riffing on a classic military design, this pair is made in Italy from quality leather and features functional details like grommeted eyelets and a rugged rubber lug sole. And just to make sure you know they’re by Gucci, the house’s identifiable red-and-green web is used on the padded ankle.
So if embroidered bees and fur-lined loafers aren’t your scene (and if they are, more power to you — fashion is about taking risks after all), this is the pair of boots that will still let you get your Gucci fix. Whether worn with your favourite denim or a tucked in pair of joggers, they’re a versatile and stylish choice for the season ahead.
