The design is completed with the use of a crepe Vibram sole adding unsurpassed comfort and durability.

SILENT — the casual offshoot of Parisian avant-garde label Damir Doma — refers to the state in which “we are freed of thoughts, of noise or of any other distraction”. In keeping with this philosophy, the label’s designs are devoid of needless embellishment, focusing instead on pure shapes and forms and the raw state of fabrics. Known for its drapey, anti-fit garments in jersey, knits and woven fabrics, SILENT also creates footwear and accessories crafted from the same carefully-selected, premium materials. For Fall/Winter 2012, the label’s Samaris Boot is an avant-garde ankle boot silhouette crafted from smooth leather and sheepskin interior lining, all atop a black wedge sole. A zipper for easy access rounds out the details of this high-end, weather-ready footwear option.
The SILENT Damir Doma Samaris Boot is available now in black from our online store.

Completing the design is a oil resistant Vibram 2021 wedge sole, a natural welt, triple reinforcement stitching nicely accented with premium leather laces and subtle branding on the upper.
