This is a stunning pair of authentic white combat boots by designer brand Chanel. They are made in Italy and feature a heavy leather sole, Goodyear welt construction, and CC logo decoratively stitched on the toes. Lace-up closure with 5 rows of eyelets and 2 rows of CC-printed hooks. The silhouette is slim and the design minimalist, perfectly embodying the aesthetics of the Chanel brand. Based on the style and signs of age I believe the date to be 1990s or possibly early 2000s. The material quality of these boots is just amazing, and they are a great piece of designer history!
Condition is good with minor signs of use. The uppers are largely in good shape, and are still a very pure white tone, but have some assorted scuff marks and creases on each boot. The bottoms of the soles have cosmetic soiling, and "14B" written in marker, but the actual wear-and-tear to them is light. Heels have only very slight wear. On the outside edges of the soles, the white paint coating has developed hairline cracks and minor flaking from age (pictured). The insoles are clean with the Chanel labels inside still legible (left boot label slightly less worn than the right boot's). *If you would like to see more detailed photos of any parts of the boots, please let me know and I will happily provide that!*
