Velasca Babau Laced Boots

The Babau men’s black boot is an intriguing design from Italian luxury brand Velasca. The biker-inspired boot is a lace-up ankle boot with a detailed toe cap with slight broguing detail.

A vibram sole means you’ll be able to stomp away all day in them with hard-wearing longevity whilst an inside calf-skin lining and flexible blake-stitching means they’re lightweight and flexible. Rock them with white denim and a warm winter jacket
