These boots were made for walking… and dancing, performing, singing, and touring. Musician, goddaughter of Cher, and Bella Hadid-BFF Jesse Jo Stark has found the balance of comfort, sensibility, and style in her latest iteration of her Sugar Jones personal stage boot for Chrome Hearts.
In her latest collaboration with the luxe accessories brand, the musician tapped into her own style and the need for comfort while performing to introduce new versions of the much-loved Sugar Jones boot. The new styles include a pearly patent leather pink and a patent leopard style, both of which were inspired by the colors and patterns she uses backstage at her shows. The limited edition four inch-heeled boots also have sterling silver Chrome Hearts detailing in the zipper pulls and heel scroll to complete the look.
“To me, leopard is timeless [and] pink is punk. I guess that was my mood at the time & really drew me to those colors,” Jesse Jo told CR. “I’m obsessed with the shape. They took forever to make & I want them to live forever in different versions. I hope people feel that too.”
This isn’t Jesse Jo’s first time creating a design for Chrome Hearts — her parents, Laurie Lynn and Richard Stark founded the brand, and Jesse Jo and her siblings now operate the business alongside them. When she was 18, she created a fan-favorite stud and spike jewelry collection that became a fan favorite, and since then, she has gone on to create limited edition and small capsules for her family’s brand.
This latest release is Jesse Jo’s second version of the Sugar Jones boot. She introduced the first version in 2019 in white as a spin on a modern-day go-go boot, and aptly named it after the stage name her godmother Cher gave her while the two toured together.
“I think I chose [to name the boots] Sugar Jones because it’s so nostalgic for me — I immediately connect with the little girl who dreamt of being an artist,” Jesse Jo said. “When I hear the name, I’m flooded with memories of growing up surrounded by so much creativity, drive and space to find that for myself so it’s a bit of an homage to those people who let me be me… My parents, my godmother — they gave me the guts ‘n balls to walk onto a stage.”
The Sugar Jones boots will be available online as a limited edition release at chromehearts.com.END
