Saint Laurent Combat Boot
We’re marchingâ€”not tiptoeingâ€”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.
