While I was still majorly crushing for the “Pistol” boots, somehow Acne‘s “Jensen” chelsea boot has managed to gain quite some popularity in the fashion world, especially among fashion bloggers. You really have to leave it to Acne to only have to tweak a few minimal details on a simple boot design here and there and – BOOM! – bestseller! I love all the pointy details of the Jensen boot, just not its price of $560!
