Every great pair of footwear begins with a good last, and these start from a custom made last designed by John to give a 1950's silhouette to the boot (no toe bump, with a nice taper to the shape). This is the last used in all of his engineer boots, and it's incredibly comfortably from day one.

The upper is a Shinki horsehide, tanned in Japan, in a color they call "dark cherry". We picked it because it brings out all the character inherent in horsehide - scars, marks, grain variation and other features that would normally be hidden in the tanning process. Because of this, every single pair will be different and wear in differently. If you're looking for a smooth, consistent finish to your boots, these are not the right choice for you. 

The rest of the construction details are on par with that fantastic horsehide- Japanese steel shanks, British Goodyear welting, and brass-coated steel buckles made in Tokyo. Even the labels are made on shuttle looms.

All of this goodness is pulled together and turned into boots at one of the best (and exclusive) footwear factories in Japan near Sendai. It's a spectacularly nice facility, with every machine in excellent repair and perfect tune.

We're offering free shipping to Japan on these boots.
