Clinch is made by BRASS, one of the first high-end shoe repair shops to open in Japan, owned and operated by Minoru Matsuura. They quickly evolved from shoe repair; to re-lasting to their custom lasts; to building incredible footwear around their custom lasts.

These lasts are where the magic is. Most modern lasts are optimized for mass-production. Wider, straighter, easier to pump through a production line, and easier to fit every single person into. Clinch's lasts start narrow, with a tight fit and a lot of contours to them, much like the lasts of the early 20th century.

The "Horned Moon" Cowboy Boots are an S&S-Exclusive style, featuring Clinch's usual stellar construction paired with some of the most tasteful and handsome embellishments we've seen on a Cowboy Boot. Available in two different colors of premium horsehide leather, both styles feature looping double-needle embroidery as well as crescent moon and star cutouts at the top of the shaft.

They're constructed with a 270 degree flat welt featuring a single row of tonal stitching, complimenting the sleek look and low profile of the last. Clinch's welting process is highly precise, utilizing "old-world" manufacturing processes in tandem with their custom lasts & patterns. First, the insole is soaked, then molded to the bottom of the last. From there, the boot is build around that insole. Every step of the welting process is done by hand, except for the final sewing of the outsoles, a task best done by machine.

They're made from a handsome black horsehide leather with a gentle shine and tea-core finish, meaning the black dye has only permeated the outer layers of the hide - over time, the dye will scuff and fade away, revealing the natural core beneath. Built Clinch's HR Last, they're generally a bit more slim all around than the Clinch Engineer Boot, with a comparable heel & taller instep. We've had the most success recommending folks take one half size smaller than their Brannock size for a D-width (average) foot.

Even the most minor details are considered - from the woven internal pull tabs, to the star and moon punchouts, to the full leather lining and leather insole, to the looping embroidery. They stand on reproduced O'Sullivan heels and half soles, made exclusively for Clinch to their exacting specifications, and feature an excellent low profile, with solid traction and durability.
