More Clinch boots have trickled in to Standard & Strange, in the form of their Gary high-monkey boots. Coming atcha in brown overdyed horsebutt this time around, the Gary is crafted on the CN-S last and features a 270 flat welt bottomed with brown cork O’Sullivan soles and heels.
Leffot is going back to their winning formula of putting Alden’s penny loafer on the sleek Leydon last. With a 270 flat welt and single leather soles, the Leydon Penny is available to pre-order in navy suede…
…and the Color 8 shell variant is back, as well.
Built on the Aberdeen last, these shell NST bluchers are given a bit of a twist with the antique edge. Bottomed with a 270 flat welt and double leather soles.
Made on the 379X last in resilient tobacco chamois leather, this brogued cap toe boot features a 270 storm welt and black neocork soles.
Made with the help of John Lofgren, these burly monkey boots recreate the non-standard-issue footwear worn by an elite World War II-era US Marine Corps unit known as Carlson’s Raiders. Made with a fully-lined veg-tan Italian horsehide, the boots include a rarely-seen double-row 270 flat welt, along with some custom Eastman-branded raw cord soles.
Seattle shop Brick + Mortar takes Alden’s handsewn U-Tip Boot and puts it on the Barrie last in Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan. Comes complete with a 360 pre-stitch reverse welt and commando soles.
Lots of new goodies to be had at East West Apparel! First off, another rare chance to purchase ready-to-wear White’s Boots in the UK. Crafted on the 55 last, these 7-inch-tall lace-to-toe Smokejumpers are made in brown dress leather with a handsewn stitchdown construction on some Vibram 700 soles.
EWA has some new stock from Japanese atelier Joe Works, including these beautiful derby boots in Horween brown hatch grain cowhide. Made on the Joe Works #6 last, these boots are fully lined, and feature a 270 flat welt and Vibram commando half-soles.
Utilizing calfskin from Italian tannery Zonta, these jodhpurs are built on the #1 last with a 270 flat welt and Vibram topy soles over oak bark-tanned leather midsoles.
EWA has also received some magnificent Zerrows engineers made in brown horsebutt from Maryam. Coming in at a 12-inch height, they’re made with a 270 flat welt and a Vibram 269 half-sole in tandem with a Cat’s Paw heel.
Finally, a few sizes remain of these Western-style Rolling Dub Trio boots at EWA. Constructed in black horsebutt on a modified Munson last, they’re made with a 270 flat welt, topy half-soles, and Quabaug heels.
A great daily-driver candidate right here (as evident from the well-worn example above). Made on the Copley last, this loafer features a 270 flat welt and single leather sole.
Now available at German retailer stuf|f, Y’2’s vintage-inspired engineers can be had in Black Eco Horse, a stiff oil-tanned shrunken horsehide. Made with a 270 flat welt, Biltrite half-soles, and Cat’s Paw heels.
stuf|f also has pre-orders available for Y’2’s rugged Work Boots. Built with a 270 storm welt, Vibram 705 half-sole, and Quabaug heels, it’s available to order in brown horsehide…
