Once popular with the teddy-boys of the sixties, creepers are making a mainstream return into menswear. Reworked into contemporary designs, the creeper sole is the common denominator in all of these styles and is a progression of the clumpy sole trend that’s been about for a while now. Named after their crepe souls the creeper shoe looks set to be big this winter and although the classic brothel creepers aren’t much to look at, Opening Ceremony have reworked them into a desert boot style to fit the origins of the creeper on the feet of soldiers in North Africa during the Second World War. The boots are available in natural suede or black from The GoodHood Store.
