In one Vogue Scandinavia editor’s opinion, they are the best black ankle boot there ever was
Most shoes that reach icon status really make a statement: the Saint Laurent Tribute sandal, the Gucci Princetown slipper (with lamb, natch), the Valentino Rockstud. But there is one humble shoe that really made its mark by not saying very much at all. One glorious boot that captured the hearts and wallets of the fashion industry and beyond. I am speaking, of course, of the Acne Studios Pistol Boot, the leather ankle boot that had an indelible impact on my wardrobe, possibly my life. May it rest in peace.
