He may have dazed and amazed us with his designs for Jil Sander in Milan last month, but we're a little less sure about Raf Simon's latest artistic collaboration with Doc Martens. Particularly, we're not quite sold on these wild and crazy boot/sandals. High shine patent leather is tricky to begin with. Add those trademark clunky AirWair soles and you've really got a highly unique sandal.
Though the sandals -- available in black and white or all black -- might be the most eye-grabbing kicks in the Raf Simons for Dr. Martens collection, they're not exactly the best representation. There are plenty of styles that we're a little more comfortable with.
It's kinda hard to do anything incredibly new with the iconic 90s Doc Martens platform, maybe that's why some of the best designs don't even come close to testing the outer limits. Probably the best-looking of the lot are the matte gray low docs.
What do you think about these crazy sandal-boots? Do they belong in a 90's girl-punk music video?
