Acne Studios’ own take on the famous ‘beak’ shoe was informed by the language of clothing that evolved in nomadic communities – how a style emerges with its own logic. The Acne Studios x Kero collaboration makes the traditional Kero boot with a more distinctive beak in a slip-on, calf-high boot or knee-high boot.
“When I was growing up, my mum thought Kero shoes were really cool, so she made me wear them. I hated them at the time and was one of the only kids wearing them at school. Now that I’m older, I wanted to see if I could bring them into the Acne Studios world and play with this idea of heritage and roots,” says Jonny Johansson.
Reimagined to a slightly higher and larger form with a tall shearling footbed modification on the sole for added comfort.Made in Sweden, they come in either black, white or cognac brown. The white versions are studded with jewelled embellishments.
The Acne Studios x Kero capsule is also showcased as part of the Acne People content series, in which creative friends interact with seasonal collections bringing their individual style to the conversation. Those photographed include musicians and artists Bakar, Alewya, Bladee, Ellie Roswell from Wolf Alice and Wolf Gillespie.
