For the Love of Boots

Our artisan team has produced a fresh batch of boots which will get you through the second half of winter and kick off the spring in style.

Our first boot derives it’s design heritage from our timeless Derby Simple Shoe, a derby that customers gravitate to when looking for a versatile shoe that will perform well in both a dress and casual setting.

The clean design of our Derby Simple Boot sports an elegantly elongated vamp, a handsome chiseled toe and a impeccable handmade patina in a lustrous antique brown on rich reno grain calf, a tactile delight that you’ll enjoy running your fingers over.

With 4 eyelets and 3 speed hook lacing, the boot provides a snug and customizable fit, while the lightweight yet durable Vibram Commando Sole ensures traction, making it the ideal companion for the winter season and outdoor trips during the hotter months.

The Derby Simple Boot will elevate your formal attire when paired with a tailored suit or allow you to indulge in a more relaxed setting by combining them with heavy wool flannel, dark denim, or your favorite pair of khakis. With its balanced proportions, Norman’s charismatic design seamlessly transitions from sophisticated to casual flair.

Our second featured boot is a beautiful new make-up of our luxurious mid-cut Brossa Derby Boot.

Taking inspiration from classic American work boots, this luxury version features an unlined shaft for increased ankle mobility, subtle brogue accents that adorn the facings and intricate embroidery along the heel shaft. The carefully crafted design extends to the comfortable Vibram button sole, ensuring every step delivers a harmonious blend of comfort and style.

The exquisite curvature of the heel shaft embraces the ankle with grace, sweeping seamlessly from heel to the bottom of the heel block, providing both support and a polished silhouette.

In this small batch, we have curated the finest Country Calf leather from the renowned Tanneries du Puy. Adding an additional touch of sophistication, our artisans have applied a handmade Orion patina – our signature formula of black and blue with blueish tints gracefully shining through at the toe cap, facings, and heel.

The darker patina effortlessly complements both dress and casual attire. Whether paired with tailored suits for a polished look or styled with more relaxed ensembles.

Our final boot is a gorgeous new version of our Boulevardier Boot in a cognac handmade patina. With two-eyelet lacing, a unique design and a Vibram Gumlite Commando Sole, this boot ensures unparalleled style and comfort, making it the ideal companion for your leisurely strolls through the city.

The Boulevardier Chukka Boot's distinctive design features a single, masterfully crafted piece of grain calf lasted around the toe box, heel, and quarters. Contrasting suede elegantly graces the tongue facings and heel collar, resulting in a harmonious marriage of textures and clever and skillful patternmaking.

Inspired by the vibrancy of New York City and our esteemed friend, Mr. Prieto, the Boulevardier has etched its mark in our brand's history. A custom creation that captivated the world, it emerged as our most popular Instagram post in 2019, igniting a surge of made-to-order requests.

Embodying the spirit of the Boulevardier – an individual who savors life while navigating the city's bustling streets with leisurely strides. This urban explorer, blessed with the luxury of time, embarks on a journey without a fixed path, allowing freedom to explore, discover new inspirations, and create unique narratives.

Each Goodyear-welted pair of Derby Simple Boots, Brossa Derby Boots, and Boulevardier Boots are meticulously hand-finished by our team of artisans in Barcelona before delivery.
