how it is made.

Handcrafted in Italy and constructed from the finest Italian calf leather, hand-dyed, had-buffered, waxed and polished to enhance the natural lustre of this extraordinary material. The upper is Blake-stitched to a natural crepe sole for a modern twist and to create a bold stylistic contrast with the smartness of the upper.

The dimensional, tonal finish is the result of a meticulous artisanal process, which starts from the hand buffering of natural crust leather and sees additional layers of dye gradually applied by hand once the shoe is stitched together. The beautiful patina is then emphasised through careful waxing and brushing.

Everything is in the detail, and some things can be felt but not seen – the cotton thread, cushion footbed, arch support, calfskin lining, and leather reinforcements – to ensure excellent comfort and durability.

shoe care.

These boots are made from the best Italian leather and are meant to be lived in and develop a natural patina. The more worn-in, the cooler they become, displaying a lifetime of memories and stories.

That said, regularly caring for your shoes will nourish them, increasing their softness, water resistance and comfort. And, it goes without saying, the more you care for your shoes, the longer they will last.

My new chukka boots are incredible! The leather is so soft and has a beautiful chestnut color. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly they arrived, and the customer service was excellent. I love how versatile they are - I can wear them with anything from jeans to dress pants. Surely, I will be ordering more from this brand!
