I think it was a conscious decision by Hedi/CELINE, in an effort to conserve cost. Most SLP boots (if not all) used YKK zips, and while I’ve never encountered a problem with any of my pairs, they did always seem cheap (considering the cost of the shoes) and drew my curiosity.There is no excuse.
Even small brands like Bonne Gueule (a french brand I follow since the beginning) is using Excella YKK zippers for their 590 € leather jacket : https://www.bonnegueule.fr/nos-premiers-blousons-en-cuir-decouvrez-leur-histoire/
If a luxury brand like Céline wants to use YKK, it should be the premium Excella offer. What a shame if this is confirmed not the case.
