This summer we have expanded our horizons for the brand, creating a new and exclusive capsule collection of PHIX footwear, each pair hand-crafted by artisans in Portugal. Each pair has an Italian leather upper, inner and sole construction.
Each of our boot designs have been expertly constructed, with every pair coming in a custom black PHIX box with luxe, branded Bamboo dust bags for the environmentally-conscious. These pieces are designed to stand the test of time and transcend seasons as modern classics, made using Italian leather and suede with full-leather soles and goodyear welting, as well as a Blake Stitch construction. Keep reading for a run-down of these nine new and distinctive designs.
First up, our EXILE 60MM boots. Modeled after your original motorcycle boot, upgraded with a stacked 60mm heel, they feature subtle PHIX branding on the metal ring and lasered logo embossing on the custom zips. We have released this style in both traditional black calfskin and a bold white for a brighter summer feel (or simply for a more stand-out look all year round).
The DAKOTA 60MM has been constructed from leather embossed with an all-over croc effect for a wilder, more unique take on the traditional black boot. They have a blake stitch construction and, as with all out footwear, custom PHIX zippers and an imprinted sole. They have a slimmer shaft for a more tailored-to-the-leg look, and the chunky heel adds a seventies feel.
Influenced by the old American west and our love of modernised cowboy chic, the DIABLO 45MM boots have embossed snake-effect leather toe caps and a western yoke feel to the construction. The shorter cuban heel and single-side custom zip keep a clean silhouette. The tan suede version of this style have a desert-feel that works well in warmer seasons, but also pairs well with lighter and acid-wash denim.
Our KEITH 50MM boot is all-out seventies in style, with all the benefits of modern construction and craftsmanship. The natural stacked sole and cream croc embossed leather create an elegant contrast, meaning the shoe pairs perfectly with denim and tailoring, on a hot summer's day or on-stage. The single western-style panel gives the boot an additional distinction.
With a distinguishing double buckle construction and western panelling, the MONIQUE 50MM boots are this season's favourite. They were designed with evenings and more formal looks in mind, so style well with suits and classic tailoring, whilst still retaining that PHIX edge. They have a subtle single-side custom zipper for ease of wear.
The MILES 50MM boot is our take on the classic black boot. Perfect for all occasions, these are a modern menswear staple that can be worn by anyone, anywhere. Endlessly wearable with a stacked cuban heel, they can be effortlessly styled but still retain their point of difference with the subtle branded rear buckle and high-shine leather western panel.
We have taken inspiration from the classic and beloved Chelsea Boot, sticking to the rules of the silhouette with the elasticated side panelling and stacked cuban heel, but then taking liberties with a bright white leather contrasting natural browns. The PIERO 50MM boots look great in the height of summer, but will also pair well with autumnal tones, making them a true transitional piece.
