Opening Ceremony’s impact on the contemporary fashion landscape has been quite phenomenal.  As both a retail space and apparel brand they have been at the forefront of marrying high fashion and functional contemporary clothing with streetwear.  We are big fans here at slamxhype, however whilst their high fashion price tags or flamboyant design flourishes may not be to everyone’s taste their footwear seems to strike a chord with everyone.  Perhaps their most popular and enduring shoes are their take on the ubiquitous desert boot.  A semi-formal upper with a chunky rugged sole, these modern classics embody the spirit and look of the brand better than anything else they do.

The Spring/Summer 2011 versions are available now in a range of supple deerskin leather and buttery soft suede.  Rock with a skinny, cropped leg, flecked wool suit for the ultimate Opening Ceremony look.

Available from Goodhood.
