Jil Sander FW20 Tread Sole Metal Eyelet Derby EU42
Brand new with box. Fit like a UK9/US10.
After taking over the creative helm of Jil Sander in Spring of 2018, Luke and Lucie Meier have brought an element of emotion and whimsy to the fashion house's renowned minimalist design. For Jil Sander Menswear, this manifests in silhouettes shifting towards the softer and more relaxed.
A heavily panelled shoe demonstrating some of the Meiers’ best work. The upper is rendered in a compelling and unexpected mix of materials that contrasts the natural and the futuristic--shiny patent leather is cut with soft, textured suede, cotton, and linen underlays. The clinical optic white of the patent is softened by the cream tones of the natural fibers, giving the shoe a decidedly 'formal yet lived-in' look from the start. The upper is nested within an extra high black textured sidewall that leads to an exaggerated lug-sole below. The black colour-blocking and size of the sole both play on footwear proportions, creating a shoe that is halfway sleek halfway chunky--with enough heft to anchor the wider bottoms of the new Jil Sander.
