Y-3 Chelsea Boot Concept by David Whetstone

I’m always a fan of David Whetstone’s clean amd well executed aesthetic. His most recent design being this Y-3 concept; a well cushioned, sporty Chelsea boot style.
Keeping the traditional, clean Chelsea boot silohuette, David incorporated a integrated continuous loop bungee cable for the fastening as well as a medial zip for quick on/off.

“I’ve been having ankle stability issues. Running shoes are too soft and unstable. Dress Chelsea boots are too stiff. I wanted to do something that is obnoxiously cushioned but also ultra stable. Still in progress, but this is my take at making a modern Chelsea boot.” – David
