Bondage and fetish fashion were a very early component of original punk style and have directly influenced the footwear in this segment, which also has a wealth of rebellious detail. The Bondage Shoe has a simple buckle detail, whereas the Bondage Loafer is more explicit, with the buckle over the tassel being a silver handcuff. The Bondage Boot is the most fetishised, with three buckles and a back-strap that unhooks from the heel. The flattened eyelets and buckle detail here add a sense of quality but there is flexibility too, with the ability to unzip the top portion, giving the option of either a 12- or 8-eye fitting. The soft and supple Inuck leather here offers a compelling blend of rugged and refined. The Oxblood or Black colouring on all three highlights the textured leather, reminiscent of the brand's earlier industrial days, and sets off the metalwork of the 8-Tie Boot and also the Shoe. Both have crisp flattened eyelets in gun-metal silver while the boot also has flattened ski-hooks. The ska-inspired Tassel Loafer has an improved fit.
