Designer Kris Van Assche has developed quite a reputation during his tenure at the helm of Dior.  On his own private label, Assche has revealed something a bit different– a pair of boots, namely the “Zip Boot”.  The Kris Van Assche Zip Boot is a slick, black leather boot with a spiraling zipper from ankle to heel.  While the form of the Zip Boot is decidedly traditional, the zipper itself provides a fresh, bold detail that makes the classic a bit contemporary.  At $955 a pair, these kicks ain’t cheap, but the discerning gent with a healthy pocket may find that these boots fit your persona like a, well, boot.
