Dirk Bikkembergs Boots Steel cut Knee-High With metal Hooks
These Dirk Bikkembergs Knee-high Boots feature a Metal pull tab on each boot & the signature steel-cut heel. This mountaineering-inspired boot has a brown cow hide leather outer with black outlining along the boot giving a beautiful accent to the color.
Originally introduced in 1996 the steel-cut heel boots feature his signature design elements the steel-cut heel, and the bungee cord to hold the shoe together. This is possibly the most unique aspect of the shoe, the reason being it allows the wearer to create hundreds of styling patterns! All the various ways there are to tie the cord can change along with each outfit. Not only that but the Leather tongue was created in an intriguing way unlike the traditional boot the tongue is split allowing for a unique silhouette to be achieved depending on how the wearer decides to lace the shoe, if laced in a tight pattern will show a completely different silhouette than if laced in a loose pattern for the front tongue. One other of the most intriguing details is the squared-out front sole, reminiscent of ski boots, Dirk took inspiration from the shape of ski boots and added a little touch to the boots themselves.
