John Elliott Enhances Tradition With Chunky "Creeper II" Boot

John Elliott has been on an in-house shoe streak recently, serving up future classics like the Edition One Runner and Grace Slide Sandal in various colorways and textiles. Now, the Californian designer launches another silhouette, though it’s not entirely new: meet the Creeper II, a remix of the original 2017 design.

Part of John Elliott’s expansive Spring/Summer 2021 lineup, the boot is a flip of the original patent leather makeup, updated with higher-end textiles and some subtle revisions. These range from a shiny spazzalato leather upper to the weighty EVA midsole that gives the shoe its name, wrapped in crepe and set atop a gently rippled outsole. There’s also a custom-molded heel spoiler that gives the shoe’s ankle opening sculptural grace.

The Italian-made Creeper II is available on John Elliott’s web store and the brand’s stores for $598 USD. Like some of the previous releases, the shoe’s purchase partially supports a charitable endeavor: specifically, 10% of sales will be sent to UCLA’s Medical School to ensure a positive outlook for health education.
