For the Love of Boots, Part 2

Join us for an exclusive two-week pre-order, where you can reserve your pair of our two stunning new boots set to debut in late Fall.

The first is our signature Decon Chukka, a unique boot that was created by Norman Vilalta after challenging himself to design a new type of chukka.

Instead of quarters sewn on top of the vamp like a classic chukka, Norman used clever patternmaking to use a single piece of leather to combine the quarters and vamp, and carefully last the leather around the boot to meet at the center back.

When designing this beautiful boot, Norman cut the tongue, facings, and collar separately, enabling the design to incorporate various upper materials.

Norman paired supple suede from Charles Stead with smooth box calf from Tanneries du Puy. This deliberate design choice not only ensures a distinctive texture but also provides a canvas for experimenting with different patinas across two distinct leather types..

With regard to color, we've applied a captivating Orion handmade patina, a sophisticated blend of black and blue. This unique hue offers a touch of individuality without being ostentatious.

Style the Decon Chukka Boot effortlessly with a navy or grey suit for formal occasions, or dress them down with dark denim or khakis for a more relaxed look.

Our second featured boot, is our Robert Chukka Boot in country calf leather from Tanneries du Puy and a comfortable Vibram Button Sole.

The design of our Robert Boot is defined by the combination of slightly bowed facings, double eyelets, and an elongated vamp that creates an elegant silhouette.

The chiseled toe combined with the slightly thicker sole add a sharp, masculine touch and the top stitching along the collar is a subtle design detail that accentuates the profile.

Crafted from pebble grain leather, the Robert Chukka exudes a refined yet subtly rugged charm. The rich and versatile handmade espresso patina effortlessly complements both formal attire and smart-casual ensembles.

Each Goodyear-welted pair of Decon Chukka Boots and Robert Chukka Boots is meticulously hand-finished by our team of artisans before delivery. This artisanal process requires 3 to 6 hours of hand-work per pair and results in a bespoke quality finishing that no other ready-made collection has to offer.

Participate in our special pre-order through Tuesday, April 2nd.

Enjoy your new boots this fall
