The Raf Simons' Leather Velcro Boot Sneaker is half country and half city. This sneaker mixes elements of riding boots with sneakers to create a shoe unlike any I've ever seen. And I see a lot of shoes.

The Leather Velcro Boot Sneaker features a boot upper with a sneaker sole. Velcro straps up top remind you that this is still a sneaker at heart, albeit an oddly designed one. Raf Simons could be starting a new fashion trend with this shoe. Only time will tell whether this boot-sneaker hybrid catches on. Stats for Hybrid Riding Shoes Trending: Older & Chilly
