a hybrid shoe blurs the boundaries between combat boot and skate sneaker
as the boundaries between formal- and casualwear have blurred, and sportswear has become a luxury staple, hybrid designs have emerged that assimilate a variety of shapes and styles. staying one step ahead of this synergistic aesthetic is Milan-based label neil Barrett, whose tank boots, in a graphic black and white print, bridge the gap between the battlefield and the half pipe. part military boot, part skate sneaker, the style boasts the rubber toe and zip-detail of a trainer, and a sturdy military-tread sole. We’re totally commandeering the new fashion without frontiers.
