Introducing: The New Sneaker Boot From Rag & Bone

When it comes to footwear, what Rag & Bone says usually goes. First comes the Pistol boot and then a million iterations follow, from wannabe brands taking cues from Wainwright and Neville. So, when scouring for future shoe trends, one needn't look further than the fresh delivery at the label's spring '16 show, which took place in Dumbo last night. And deliver it did. Alongside chunky gladiator sandals, delicate-but-tough earrings, and perforated bags came our favorite Rag & Bone accessory in a while: tough sneakers for the downtown girl.

They're part Jordan sneaker, part Danner snow boot, and perfect for year-round wear. We love the hefty, high-top silhouette, and with their wide laces, the shoes read both practical and sartorially advanced.

The look is ideal for those of us who feel we can't "pull off" Air Max vibes, but want to get in on the athletic action. Take styling tips from the models last night and wear a pair with a long dress and a top knot. Or, skinny jeans and a silk bomber. Just be prepared to wait in line like the hardcore sneaker heads do; these things are going to go fast. And then, you know, be copied and repeated all over town.
