Dior Homme gives us a look at some footwear offerings for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2014 season. Always one to explore what’s possible, the label has taken some relatively traditional leather footwear silhouettes (always in black, of course) and injected some flair into them with elements like stylized metal lace tips, two-tone clasps and most notably a metal (we think) insert for a chunky cutaway sole. Expect these pieces to drop at Dior Homme retailers in the next few months.
