We build our boots entirely by hand, using only top-quality materials and skilled craftsmanship from the inside out. To start, we source premium leathers — even to line our boots — and we construct the boot’s interior with a hung vamp. This old-world technique allows the leather in the front of the boot to mold to the foot easily, for greater comfort and support. To secure a boot’s upper and insole together, we use a channel technique. A method used with hand-sewn bespoke shoes, creating a channel in the leather insole hides the stitches for a perfectly smooth footbed. Also on the inside: a leather heel counter, which reinforces the heel cup. We also use premium leathers on the outside, detailing quarters with exquisite hand-stitched designs, carefully crafted inlays, hand-cording, and more. A premium leather stacked heel and a natural leather sole are the foundation of our boots. Outsole and insole are held together by a three-quarter welt and lemonwood pegs. A typical boot has about 45 pegs, each carefully hammered by hand into a small hole. Lemonwood is more malleable than metal, expanding and contracting at an almost identical rate as leather.
Intricate design work, such as a detailed quarter pattern is always done by hand.
Genuine lemonwood pegs secure the boot’s steel shank to the sole.
Layers of real natural leather create a walkable stacked heel.
