Among our colorful finishes, we receive the most questions related to the polishing and maintenance of our signature 3D Patina. We understand that shoe care is a labor of love for many of our clients, so we thought it was about time for us to make a special...

Midnight Blue

Our Decon Chelsea Boot is now available in a handsome midnight blue suede. The subtle dark patina and texture of the suede will elevate any look from dress pants to khakis to dark denim.  The boot features an elongated vamp which creates an elegant silhouette and a chiseled toe for a touch of edginess. Like a Chelsea Boot, our Decon Chelsea features side gore for a glove like fit, but also include 2 eyelet facings which give the boot ankle stability and a structured and streamlined look. Our Decon Chelsea Boot is available now in a small batch both online here and in our boutique and atelier in Barcelona, Spain. Each pair is Goodyear-welted, bench made, and hand finished in our...

The side gore permits you to easily slip them on but is somewhat hidden by the leather paneling. The two eyelet facings add stability and enable the elongated vamp.

While sourcing leathers we came across a classy nappa grain leather which is soft and supple with a subtle grain that gives the shoe a bit of texture. We don’t usually source black leather since we create our own black patinas in house starting with crust or leather...

A Boot for the Boulevardier

On April 1st, 2019, we posted a photo on our Instagram account of a made-to-order (MTO) Decon Chukka with an upper of pebble grain leather instead of Box Calf and a Vibram Commando Sole, in place of leather. The result – A wave of private messages, comments, likes, and MTO requests. The Boulevardier is a MTO designed one of our friends and clients who gave the boot it’s name, Mr. Prieto, a true Boulevardier. What is a Boulevardier, one might ask?  A Boulevardier is one who enjoys life while on a leisurely walk in the city. He is the urban explorer whose success in life affords him the time to stroll and observe society. To be clear, the Boulevardier doesn’t...
