THE MOST URBAN: ZIP BOOTS

THE MOST URBAN: ZIP BOOTS

Practical thanks to their zip, they will seduce those who don't like the elastic of chelsea boots.
Contrary to the previous ones, we often find a thicker leather here, as well as a more imposing sole. They are also a good compromise, comfortable in several different styles.

They are available in both smooth leather and suede with a patina. Personally, I recommend the second one: I find it brings a bit more originality and creates interesting variations with leather jackets.

Here in a full black version, the whole is racy. Each piece has a different texture. Even the leather of the jacket and shoes is not worked in the same way. This avoids a too smooth or monotonous look. Swapping the perfecto for any jacket will work too.
They also find their place in simpler looks. They are shoes with a "comfort" spirit, don't hesitate to wear them with good basics for an efficient outfit.

THE MOST CASUAL: THE DESERT BOOTS
Desert boots, with their two or three pairs of carnations, belong to the chukkas family. Usually made of calf leather or nubuck, they are differentiated by a rough and irregular rubber sole called "crepe".

Developed in the 1940s by Nathan Clark, they were inspired by the shoes worn by soldiers on missions in the North African deserts. Breathable and resistant, they quickly became a basic shoe in their own right.
