On Nov. 4, WORLDboots held their launch party in the intimate upstairs lounge at The District by Hannah An. to unveil its fresh new line of high-end, high fashion streetwear “Sneakerboots” Founded by Marc Bruder and designed by Ben Zerbe, ‘Sneakerboots’ represents a new breed in luxury footwear that is innovatively designed to give the wearer optimum comfort and posture support.
The launch showcased this impressive new brand in its many colors and styles. Celebrities and influencers were treated to food, Tequila tasting by Casa Mexico Tequila and music provided by DJ Kay Rocky. But there was also an altruistic tone to the night, as WORLDboots also raised funds for their partner charity, Soles 4 Souls who’s hope and mission is to create short and long term solutions to “wearing out poverty.”
Since its creation, WORLDboots’ purpose has been to establish and re-envision the genre of sneakerboots, using handmade craftsmanship and premium materials, combined with a “fashion meets function” mindset. WORLDboots desires to introduce unique, timeless and luxurious pieces all while helping the less fortunate by contributing to Soles 4 Souls, in an effort to eradicate poverty.
What separates the ground from your foot is more than material; it is intention and purpose, the path you walk as an individual, as one and as many we strive forward together.
The paradigm of fit and function coupled with a fashion frame, Worldboots represents a fresh genre of footwear. They call them ‘Sneakerboots’. Breeding the athletic midsole base with an upper that exudes quality and luxury, we combine podiatric expertise with fashion-forward innovation. Available in suede or leather and a variety of fashion forward colors including royal blue, Spanish pink, haze grey and true black with a sole that is designed to support you. The line offers two different collections, the Hemera and Lees, both priced from $250-$500, featuring over 10 styles composed of eccentric colors with complementary tones, combined with definitive style. The Hemera, constructed with two exclusive skirts – a full skirt and fringe style, is a fashion led ankle sneakerboot as the Lees, a high top sneakerboot, offers a must-have pair of sneakerboots for every occasion and look. The distinctive skirts seen on the Hemera can also be purchased separately as an accessory to fit every sneaker and boot making it a perfect standout to match any style.
