Saint Laurent Combat Boot
We’re marching—not tiptoeing—into fall this year, thanks to these reinterpreted combat boots from Saint Laurent designer and menswear deity Hedi Slimane. They’re built on deceptively simple, utterly luxurious design: calfskin leather, hefty rubber soles, and side zippers that bring a subtle badass quality (while saving you the hassle of lacing up every morning). The boots are always standing at attention, ready to anchor a gray flannel suit or your arsenal of cuffed slim jeans. Yes, Slimane’s stompers are a heftier investment than what’s sold at the army-navy-supply store, but if you want to win the street-style war, sometimes you have to break out the big guns.
