Durability and resistance are great words to describe combat boots. Part of the military uniforms, they were made of leather and had thicker soles for all kinds of terrain. In the 1970s they became a symbol of the counterculture when they were adopted by punks and goths, and identifiers of grunge and new wave styles. They are still popular nowadays thanks to more comfortable models, which are also urban and light. Perfect for utilitarian looks, combat boots stand out among the upcoming season’s launches, with thicker soles, soft leather and padded cuffs – not to mention, of course, the unmistakable laces, present in models of different colors and styles.
