I was surprised and pleased a couple of days ago to get an IM from designer Eponymous Trenchmouth of Jeepers Creepers: “Hey, check out these new boots!” Â Words like that are music to my ears (both sets). Â I’ve been looking for some ways to shake up my look lately anyway, so this opportunity was not to be missed. Â The new Rigger Boots come in six different color/pattern combos: Stealth, Camo, Mud, Sand, Sky, and Urban. Â Here I’m wearing them in Stealth, just because the black goes so well with the emo/neko thing I’ve got going today. Â These boots have a fantastic, glossy shine to them. Â Note the dangling flexi laces and loose tongue–nice touches all around. Â You’ll need really tight jeans to tuck them inside the boots like this; the Super Slim Extreem Vintage jeans by Lost Thereian are perfect, but any that allow you to mod the flare way down will do just fine.
The Riggers can be worn either as high-tops (16 holes) or with rolled-over low-tops. Â The high-tops are actually two pieces, a foot attachment and a leg attachment. Â A handy notecard is included that explains which pieces to wear together, and a reference picture shows how the eyelet holes should align when the leg attachments are adjusted properly.
The rolled-cuff low-tops are single attachments worn on the foot. Â Here you can get a good look at the impressive detailing of the thick, chunky, tready sole as well as the fabric texture on the inside of the rolled-down cuff. Â You really expect to leave serious footprints behind when you walk around in boots like these.
The other styles share the same quality construction but are textured with different colors and patterns. Â With six styles to choose from, you’re bound to find one that fits you like a glove! … so to speak.Â Priced at L$400 a pair (includes high-top and low-top versions), all six styles of the new Rigger Boots are available now at Jeepers Creepers (Tuliptree 185, 176, 30).
