John Elliot has always had a rich history of modernizing streetwear staples like the high-top sneaker or the hooded sweatshirt, so it should come to no surprise that the designer would move onto something as timeless as the combat boot. The shoe itself is sleek and uniform in designing, boasting calfskin- lined inner-workings and a seamless silhouette that conveys a sense of class and toughness. Handcrafted in Italy, each pair is sturdy and long-lasting, allowing the wearer to keep these boots going for ages. The speed lacing system allows for added comfort and a piece that is wearable too, while grooves below the padded collar let you wrap the laces of the rubber-soled boot around your ankles for an extra solid fit. John Elliot’s combat boot is available online now in either black leather or waxed grey suede for $498 USD each.
