Fresh from Dior (PARIS:CDI.PA +0.61%) ‘s Winter 2021 runway comes yet another pair of boots, this time around debuting the Snow Ankle Boot as recently shown by the label’s footwear designer Thibo Denis.
Following on from the Kim Jones-helmed label’s just-dropped pair of wellingtons comes this pair of seasonal boots, which is dubbed as a “new take on the snow boot in a couture variation.” Offered up in black, brown, or beige, the pair utilizes a construction comprising smooth calfskin with a tonal and water-repellent quilted Dior Oblique Mirage technical fabric (somewhat similar to nylon), with the latter working the most part of the upper.
Laces run the full length of the upper before reaching the top where a “CD”-branded toggle has been added to help secure and fasten the pair, while metal D-ring eyelets lock the hiking-style rope laces in place. Dior’s signature is stamped into the leather heel that continues around the shoe like a bumper, while a thick rubber sole unit rounds out the pair with further Dior branding.
For Dior, we suspect this pair might be the next thing to further catapult the label into a stratosphere of hype. Its snow boot styling isn’t just trendsetting, but also perfect for the season to come. For those who want to cop a pair, head over to Dior’s website or boutiques now, where the boot retails for £1,150 GBP (approximately $1,590 USD).
