UBIQ x CACTUS   Ilis Boots

A Japanese label with emphasis on rustic and leisure styling, CACTUS recently released its 2nd collaboration with footwear maker UBIQ. The UBIQ x CACTUS Ilis boots preserved much of the functionality and looks of the usual hiking boots.  This includes D-Ring lacing system, padded upper, and reinforced seams. However, the similarities end there.  Instead of heavy duty leather or Gore-Tex uppers.  The Ilis has an upper composed from canvas and suede.  Its toe box and sole are rubber based with sneaker-like treads.  Making Ilis a crossover between sneaker and hiking boots, entailed benefits from both forms. Come in 3 different colorways, the UBIQ x CACTUS – Ilis Boots is currently available at CACTUS and UBIQ retailers in Japan as well as FLAUGE store in ZOZO shopping network.
