Ginkgo

The bi-material ankle boot

The name was no accident. These trees grow very slowly and have an exceptionally long lifespan. rnCreated in 1992, this was our first design, the one that laid the foundations of our style and where our story began. The split-toe Derby was already a classic style at the time, but an ankle boot version was not available. We conceived of a robust, water-resistant boot with a comfortable and supple cuff. Over 30 years, the Ginkgo has been revamped and tweaked through experimentation and collaboration. Through it all, it has preserved its timeless appeal and come out with flying colours.

  • Reverse welt construction
  • Ravel rubber sole with an eye-catching profile featuring the original duck/fish logo
  • Heschung logo stamp on the heel to make an impression
  • Invisible, stainless-steel eyelets and hiking-boot-style lace hooks
  • Hand-sewn barring for greater sturdiness
  • Hand-finished
  • Cuff made from a supple material to ensure comfort and style
  • Padded tongue with waterproof gussets

Ginkgo, Catalpa, Tremble…these Iconic styles have been named after trees or plants and are reinvented every season in new materials and colour combinations. We give them the time necessary to grow, evolve and take lasting root in our collections. Some of these trees grow in the gardens of the Heschung workshops, allowing us to maintain and nurture our connection with nature—our abiding source of inspiration.
