1990’s Steel Heel Web Lace Boot
Marked size: 41
A clean black leather high boot, with a tunneled steel heel so that the rawhide lace can pass through and be webbed around the exterior. In great condition, some minor heel drag, easily repairable. Leather still nice and soft despite 20+ old.
Dirk Bikkembergs was notable for being a part of the “Antwerp 6”, a group of fashion students all graduating from Antwerp’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts. This group includes Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, and Honorary member Martin Margiela. They minus Margiela set out with a rented truck of their collections and rocked London Fashion week and the rest is history. They still all meetup and keep in touch today.
