Dirk Bikkembergs White Tanker Boots
Dirk Bikkembergs is famously known for taking inspiration from workwear boots & adding a twist to make them a fashionable high fashion garment. This boot is nothing short of that statement. Although the origins of this style of boots are unknown there is a story stating "The idea of the boots was borrowed from the French crewmen by American Captain George S. Patton, Jr. During World War I, he strapped a young soldier’s boots with his cavalier pistol holster straps."
The tanker boot classically incorporates a strap to wrap around the ankle & the bottom of the boot allowing for the wearer to easily tighten or loosen with the belt buckle. This boot has many small features to appreciate the boot by, such as the "Dirk Bikkembergs" engraving on the buckle. Small studs creep through the sole of the boot along with the wooden platform heel.
