Super-rare Ijin Ankle Cutter bastard boot
A few years ago ( in 2006 to be precise ) Phil Ijin designed a Lo-Top Hybrid Work-Boot that was not Sport nor Street, neither Fish nor Fowl , nor Sneeker nor Shoe, as far as classifying feet were concerned.

This super-rare Ijin Ankle Cutter had one last trick up its jeans cuff however & its that strange gussetted & over long tongue, to boot ( sic).
This particular detail was interpreted from vintage Vivienne Westwood ”Breaker Boots” ,er, ”back in the day”.
