SLOANE mocha commando boots.


These exquisite handmade ankle boots are the contemporary incarnation of artisanal craftsmanship. The finest full-grain horse leather is dyed a beautiful shade of mild brown; the upper is brushed and polished by hand and Blake-stitched onto a hand-built, rubber-injected buffalo leather sole. Effortlessly sleek and trend-aware, these boots look fantastic when paired with corduroy and jeans: the perfect boots to take you everywhere.

how it is made.

Handcrafted in Italy and constructed from top quality horsehide, a luxurious leather often hailed as the all-rounder for its durability and handsome aesthetic, fine grain and smooth hand. The uneven nuances and shades of the upper are created through artful hand-buffering and emphasised through careful waxing which makes each pair one-of-a-kind.

The SLOANE collection features hand-built vegetable-tanned water buffalo leather outsoles, cut from the double butt of the hide, where the thickness is about 7mm. For added traction and grip, the leather sole is reinforced with rubber insertions, a rarity in the industry due to the extraordinary level of craftsmanship required to construct them. These soles are lighter and more flexible than rubber soles but offer more traction and grip than traditional leather soles.

shoe care.

All our SLOANE shoes and boots are treated for a worn-in, distressed look, so they don’t need to be kept pristine. They are meant to be lived in and become part of your story. 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.

Love these boots

I absolutely love these boots. They are extremely well made, The detailing is perfect, the craftsmanship is amazing, the leather is velvety and clearly high quality. Shipping time was prompt and they come in a beautiful packaging.

Lovely boots, but...

Great quality boots but uncomfortable for me—not enough room in the toe box and, because the leather is stiff, the seam around the ankle causes painful chafing. Too bad; they really are beautiful, well-made boots.

Jane L.

These boots are worth every penny. The attention to detail is impeccable, and the leather is so soft. They are comfortable for all-day wear and look stunning with any outfit. I've received countless compliments whenever I wear them.
Thumbs up!

Beautiful and comfortable

Last year I bought a pair of these boots in buffalo, and I was so delighted with quality and looks that I had to try also the horse-skin version.
Same amazing craftsmanship, same amazing quality, but with a little bit of flair.
I'd definitely recommend this brand, and these boots in particular.
