Levi’s Takes a Step Into the Past to Renew Its Classic RVN Boots

Everyone has their favorite pair of Levi’s jeans. Whether it’s slim-fitting corduroy or traditional denim, the heritage brand has kept people dressed in trusty pants (and jackets) for over a century… but what about shoes? While the concept may sound new to you, it dates back quite a while, and Levi’s has just rehashed a collection of handsome leather boots to prove it.

The brand’s ‘70s-era shoe line, aptly dubbed Levi’s For Feet, has not seen the light of day very often since, giving all the more reason to revitalize the RVN boot. Short for Raven, the silhouette couldn’t have come at a better time than the start of fall, as it boasts all the elements of a traditional autumn-time stomper.

The RVN 75 is available in a handful of versatile, subtle colors, including black, natural tan, and dark brown. The leather used for each pair differs based on the color. For example, the Natural Tan option is composed of smooth, vegetable-tanned leather from the revered Horween, while the Black colorway uses supple reverse leather courtesy of Steads, a U.K.-based tannery. Additionally, it sits on a sturdy rubber outsole à la the original design and even features the nostalgic, Levi’s orange tab to keep it as authentic as possible.

Levi’s RVN 75 Boots are available on the brand’s webshop for £185.00 (~$211).
