Make LOEWE's Transparent Rubber Boot Your New Festival Season Companion
As seen during the house’s Fall/Winter 2022 men’s runway show.
Jonathan Anderson‘s LOEWE is a feast for the eyes, continuously delivering runways that question what fashion is and what it could be. Take its recent collection for example, which saw the designer plant seeds into clothes and leave them to grow organically, commenting on the cross-pollination of technology and nature, or perhaps Fall/Winter 2022, which saw LOEWE question “what is real today?” This is the show that delivered the rubber boots you see above, and now they are for sale.
LOEWE’s rubber boots might have dropped today, but that doesn’t mean they’re quite right for the summer season. Instead, put them on ice and keep them fresh for the colder months ahead, as these boots come in at 1.6kg of ankle-height rubbery goodness that’s sure to keep your feet protected.
Made entirely from rubber, the pair is sans-branded and instead leans on an unmissable aesthetic (à la Bottega Veneta’s Puddle Boot), specifically putting the focus on the toe. Here, you’ll find a ribbed toe cap that’s then cut horizontally across the vamp with a thick band of rubber, giving the shoe its inimitable look.
LOEWE offers the pair in either black, transparent, or a transparent red colorway, and completes each pair with branded insoles. Take a look at the LOEWE rubber boot above, and pick up your pair now from LOEWE’s boutiques and website for $590 USD.
