Seven inches of Seidel Brown Dress leather upper for unlimited teacore potential, unstructured toebox for that appealing chonk/sleek juxtaposition, White’s handsewn stitchdown construction for unimpeachable solidity, and lineman’s patches because they’re one of the truly great, completely unnecessary design touches you can add to a White’s. All adds up! Plenty more details right here.
Service Boot Sunday saw the release of two brogue cap-toed boots made with leather from Japanese tannery Tochigi. Some may recall Viberg first used this glossy veg-tanned cowhide in a natural color a couple years back; now they’re trying it out in a dark Chocolate…
…and a caramelly Khaki. Both pairs are made with a 270 stitchdown construction and Ridgeway soles, on the 2030 last.
Christmas sweaters are out; holiday loafers are in. Utilizing green, red, and blue nubuck leather from Italian tannery Artemis, these festive loafers are made on the 800 last with a 360 flat welt and oiled leather soles. The matching tonal threads are an especially nice touch.
White’s has just unveiled a brand-new stock model, the C355 Logger. Built on the classic 55 last, these seven-inch-tall boots are made with a two-row standard stitchdown construction and Vibram 100 lug soles. Available in Black Double Shot as seen above, as well as British Tan, Natural, and Brown.
The classic wedge-soled Rambler is available from Huckberry in this exclusive brown roughout leather. As always, the Rambler is crafted on the 55 last with a handsewn stitchdown construction and Vibram 2021 wedge sole.
That same brown roughout leather also graces the eight-inch Fire Hybrid Boot. Made on the 610 last, the Fire Hybrid is built with a two-row stitchdown construction with a White’s-exclusive version of the Vibram Fire & Ice lug sole.
Previously seen in Horween Color 8 Shell Cordovan, this iteration of the “Kuro” comes in black shell. Built on the Van last, these LHS mocs are made with a 360 flat welt and single leather soles.
Three new arrivals at Swedish retailer Skoaktiebolaget, courtesy of their house brand Löf & Tung. First up, the handsome Kingsley derby boot in Dark Brown Utah Calf, which is crafted on the “T” last with a 360 storm welt and Dainite soles.
Next, the winter-ready Champlain roper. Also built on the “T” last, the Champlain is made with Mahogany Country Calf leather along with a full shearling lining, and completed with a 360 storm welt and Vibram lug soles.
Finally, these versatile Albanel chelseas are made on the “S” last in some more of that Dark Brown Utah Calf, with a 360 storm welt and Dainite soles.
This is apparently Philadelphia-based Totem’s very first exclusive Alden makeup, and it’s quite the foray! This Indy is 379X-lasted in Earth Reverse Chamois, with a 360 flat welt and cavity wedge soles.
To celebrate 90 trips around the sun, Danner selected their vintage Mountain Trail pattern to be made in classic Horween Brown Chromexcel. Made on the 650 last, with a 360 stitchdown construction and Vibram Roccia lug soles.
