Feminine, futuristic and slick – these boots are a total rejection of our typically rugged notion of denim. In a modern design with Raf’s Dior aesthetic all over it, topstitched denim is unexpectedly introduced to glossy transparent acrylic and silver-toned metal in one elegant pair of boots.

Translating blue denim to items other than jeans can be tricky – who can forget Britney and JT’s American Music Awards moment? But with these streamlined Dior chelsea boots, that’s the furthest thing from our minds. Part of the Cruise 2016 line, which was staged at the otherworldly site of the Palais Bulles in the French Riviera, the boots reflect a central idea from the collection – that of elevating typically down-to-earth utilitarian wear to polished heights. And with its combined elements of the casual and the formal, we see these boots taking us on a smooth trip from day to night.
