Love is a battlefield, and so is fashion, so gear up for the attack with the Matiko Emery Black High Tech Platform Combat Boots. Four thick straps with futuristic, (and adjustable), black metal hook closures conceal the oxford-style, lace-up panel, with coated black shoestrings. Black leather upper has a seamed, almond-shaped toe and a 6.5" shaft that hits between ankle and mid-calf. A tab above the heel and a 9" black zipper at instep make slipping on a breeze. Hidden platform measures 1.5" at toe, including the rugged, lug sole, and the cylindrical, black, stacked wood heel offers a staggering 4.5" plus rubber tip. Cushioned insole & fabric lining. Non-skid, rubber lug sole. Fit is true to size (round down if you're between sizes). Available in whole and half sizes. Measurements are for a size 6. Leather upper. Balance man made.
