S&S x Wesco Knuckle Breaker Boots


Free USA Shipping on orders over $100


We took our top selling Wesco collaborations - the Axe Breaker lace-up boot, and the Quick Striker engineer boot - and combined them into a greatest hits album that you won't find in the cut-out bin.

We chose the 91W Western last for this boot - it has very accommodating fit throughout the heel, waist and forefoot, with a strong taper in the toebox for a sleek look. 

For the upper leather, we used the same Horween Olive Waxed Flesh leather from the Quick Striker, well known for having an incredible evolution from near-black to avocado green with time and wear. Waxed flesh leather requires minimal maintenance, only needing an occasional conditioning every 6 months to 1 year.

There are 4 antique brass eyelets, followed by 2 antique brass speedhooks, and one more set of eyelets for secure lacing over the gusseted tongue. 

As always, these are made in the USA, at Wesco's family-owned factory in Scappoose, Oregon.
