The Alexander Wang Buckle Boot Pays Homage to the Punk Rock Era

The Alexander Wang Buckle Boot was a sight for sore eyes during the RTW AW15 shows. New York Fashion Week boasts the Asian-American designer each season as one of its main headliners. This season, Wang payed tribute to London's punk rock era through his multi-buckle boot. The silver bedazzled clasps glide seamlessly over the patten leather flatforms.

The boot was seen on the runway in all black, all silver and a black/ silver combination. With the introduction of the Alexander Wang Buckle Boot, an expected influx of flatforms will be on the rise. Style.com has dubbed the shoes as 'Frankenstein boots' — after their combination of buckles, platforms and shiny exterior. The neo-grunge aesthetic separates the designer apart from the others this season.
