Balenciaga's New Santiag Harness Booties Boast a Western Influence

— April 4, 2019 — Fashion
Luxury fashion house Balenciaga introduces the Santiag Harness Booties as a part of its Spring/Summer 2019 footwear selection. The design draws inspiration from Americana culture, spotlighting Western influences, which is translated through the entire structure of the model.

The uppers are constructed from premium calfskin leather materials and it is complete with a pointed square-cut toe. It also has a palladium cap and branding accents at the front of the footwear design. The stitched details are found along the entire uppers in a matching tonal hue to add a bit of subtly to the bold silhouette. Additional details that stand out include the Cuban heel measuring out with a 40mm arch and the loop pull at the back for simple slip-on access. As a contrasting touch, the boots are accented with silver hardware.
