Following the debut of Grant Stone’s rugged Field Boot last month, they’ve just added another variant to the lineup: a boot in C.F. Stead’s soft, resilient reverse kudu leather. Crafted on the Floyd last, the Field Boot is made with a 360 flat welt and their proprietary EVA wedge sole.
Grant Stone also just opened up pre-orders for their first models in Garnet Horween Shell Cordovan earlier this week, and you’ve still got a chance to hop aboard. This luxurious leather is available in Grant Stone’s Diesel…
…and the Traveler Penny.
Brett Viberg asked Conceria Maryam to produce a horsebutt leather that was softer and easier to work with when used in a stitchdown construction. The result is a variant of Maryam’s Sego tannage, created with a heavy dose of oils and waxes, giving it a nice luster.
This red-brown Marrone color can be found on two Viberg.com-exclusive versions of the classic Service Boot. This one comes on the slightly bump-toed 2040 last, crafted with more of a rugged workwear silhouette with AA-sized antique brass eyelets and a Goodyear commando sole.
Meanwhile, this 2030 model is a bit more dressy thanks to the sleeker last, the brogued cap toe, and the low-profile Dainite studded soles.
White’s continues to expand their more wallet-friendly lineup with the Fulton, an eight-inch-tall padded-collar moc toe boot made with a 360 flat welt and comfy Vibram honey lug soles.
The eight-inch O.T. Pro swaps out the original O.T.’s honey lug soles in favor of Vibram’s Red X lug sole, designed to be chemical- and fire-resistant. The O.T. Pro is available in a few different colors, including this new icy gray leather (which JK is offering on some of their other models as well).
Meermin is offering three elegant chelseas in their limited Made To Order options. You’ve got three Tannerie d’Annonay leathers to choose from: Tan Alpine Grain…
…and Green Naturcalf, all crafted on the Hiro last with a 360 Norvegese construction. Just a few days left to get your order in!
