Patchwork Leather Ankle Boots

Acne Studios Delivers a New Soft Boot-Like Silhouette for the Season

— October 13, 2021 — Fashion
Acne Studios and its creative director Johnny Johannson introduces the brand new patchwork leather ankle boots that are set to join the Fall/Winter 2021 season. It has a playful design language that takes calf leather suede materials to create the silhouette. It is detailed in a shadow blue hue and finished with distressed tied knit details throughout the welt of the silhouette. The boots also give off a modern take of the western-themed silhouette.

For better access and enclosure purposes, the shoes have a zipper on the side and sit on top of a dark brown crepe rubber wedge as the outsole unit. Talking about the shoe, Johannson states,“ this is a wardrobe that brings together the relaxed silhouette of sports casual with the tailored glamour from my dream of living in a band [...] it is menswear that is functional and minimal, with humor, sexiness, and lightness.”
