Winter’s coolest full-cover flats might just be the most easily-worn to boot. San Francisco native Wang clearly knows a thing or two about gear made for walking, but has never been one to embrace simplicity in his signature minimalist designs. (Take note, the two are incredibly different things in the fashion realm.)

Rather, the polished studs amping up these Kori ankle boots are the opposite of subtle and the signature sliced-out triangle in the four centimetre heel (see, not so flat) the ultimate gender neutral embellishment. Both are typical of the former Balenciaga creative director, who celebrates a decade of his own eponymous label this year. 

What better way to help him celebrate than by showing the shoe world who’s boss? Now that’s our kind of industrial revolution
