The grain texture of Shinki Horsebutt is highly variable, and will differ immensely from boot to boot. We cannot ensure your boots will have more or less grain than what is photographed as all pairs will be entirely unique. Caveat emptor.

A proper western-style Roper, the Duke boots make for an extremely handsome pull-on with all the usual Lofgren quality. All the classic details are there, from the twin pull-tabs to the extended vamp, brought together by multiple rows of exacting stitchwork around a fully custom last. 

These are sewn up in Timber brown horsebutt from the Shinki Tannery in Japan, one of the premier horsehide tanneries in the world. This remarkable leather features a glossy finish and a gorgeous grain texture that ranges from subtle to incredibly prominent. Unlike cowhide, horsebutt tends to roll rather than crease over time, giving them a more subtle and graceful aging process.

They stand on Vibram's #269 "Western" outsole and #700 heel, a great combination for comfort and durability that don't sacrifice traction. The low profile and lowered heel of the ropers lend to the overall sleekness of the boot, which is finished with a 270 degree storm welt that can be resoled by any skilled cobbler once the outsole or heel wears down.

Choose 0.5 size smaller than your Brannock device size.
