Description
The white leather boots are inspired by the tradional Japanese worker's boots 'jitatabi. The toe section is divided into two sections. The boot has a cylindrical heel and is fastened along the inside ankle side with 3 continuous vertical lines of elastic, fixed at regular intervals to create loops for a row of flat oval metal hooks.
