This limited-edition service boot comes on the Viberg 2040 last in a Maryam horsebutt with some serious teacore potential, thanks to the matte black pigment dye on the leather’s surface that will wear away over time. Built with a stitchdown construction on Ridgeway soles. Just a few sizes remaining for this one.
A timeless brown slipper with leather from C.F. Stead, built on the 2030 last with some comfy Lactae Hevea crepe soles. Noice.
The Tricker’s Stow remains the quintessential country boot, and while Horween’s navy CXL may not have exactly been in fashion when Tricker’s released its icon…damn if it doesn’t work wonderfully. Navy CXL, in our experience, remains less TRULY navy with heavy wear, tending to get a bit lighter in shade and more varied in its finish as the leather’s pull-up reveals itself. Point is: you can beat these silly, or keep them fresh and bold, and be very happy either way.
These murdered-out chonky Chelseas come in Horween Black CXL with a 360 storm welt and Itshide commando soles.
Nicks has adapted their popular new 1964 Brown—a 7.5-8 oz leather from Seidel Tanning that has been hot-stuffed with natural oils to create a supple firmness—into two new colors, and right now you can get their all-around Overlander boot at an expedited timeline and with ten percent off the list price! You’ve got your choice of classic Black…
…or dark brown Walnut.
We’re getting to know Amsterdam retailer The Hand, and they’re impressing us with some nifty exclusive GMTOs. Here they’ve got some excellent jodhpurs from renowned shoemakers Gaziano & Girling. The London Boot features a sandstone suede on their DG70 last, with double leather soles and a Cuban heel.
The Hand also has some exclusives from Northampton stalwarts Edward Green, who have whipped up a couple of full-strap loafers for the retailer. The Montpellier is crafted on the 184 last with a flat welt and single leather soles. It’s available in a beautiful bronze antique calfskin…
…and a bold bourbon shell.
Another collaboration 19927 Boot from Monroe and Baker’s, this time in a veg tan leather in hand-dyed black. Coming in at 7 inches tall on the MB-03 last, this boot features a 270 veldtschoen construction with black Dr. Sole half soles.
Ending tonight! This MTOpportunity brings back one of Truman’s most popular leathers, Java Waxed Flesh, with the ability to pick everything from the last to the toe style.
This combination-tanned Seidel leather is a similar tannage to their burly logger-style leathers, featuring a subtle glaze and great pull-up character. These derbies are crafted on Truman’s 55 last with a 270 flat welt and low-profile rubber soles.
Coming atcha in C.F. Stead’s Snuff Rambler, these tallboy moc toes are built on the 20 last with a 270 storm welt and Vibram honey lug soles.
