In the 19th century long trousers dominated men’s wardrobes making boots an indispensable companion at that time. They first became truly popular, when George “Beau” Brummel wore them in around 1820. Brummel combined an elegant suit with so-called “bottines” in a look that would endure for centuries.
An ankle-high vamp of around 20 cm typically characterises a boot. Furthermore, boots are equipped with a double leather sole, while the outsole is crafted from a water-resistant material. Boots are the ideal choice for inclement weather in the city or the country. But they should be carefully selected on formal occasions, lest you break any style rules. Only high quality men’s boots, equipped with a simple leather sole, are truly acceptable for a business suit.
The focus of our Boot Collection is set on the Chelsea Boot and the Jodhpur. Chelsea Boots boast a plain ankle-high vamp with comfortable elastic bands on both sides. The design radiates a youthful and wild sensibility, located somewhere between dandyism and the avant-garde. Nonetheless, these men’s shoes are appropriate for every style-conscious gentleman, both young and old. Chelsea Boots looks great in the office and complement suits perfectly. You can also wear them in more formal settings or in your free time, too.
Jodhpur Boots meanwhile were originally Indian half-boots for riding. Typically one leather strip stitched to the vamp runs around the ankle to provide a more steady hold. These men’s shoes radiate a sportive elegance and match Jodhpur trousers perfectly. These boots are also high-quality business shoes though – wear them with a suit for the office or in casual settings.
All of our boots are handmade using traditional methods and Goodyear-welted. That makes ours steady, breathable, durable and easily to resole. Produced with painstaking care by a Spanish manufacturer, just one of our classic men’s shoes is made of 65 separate parts. In all, around 210 skilled operations are used to craft each of our extraordinary men’s shoes. Only high-grade materials are used for the shoe manufacturing, which guarantees the highest quality.

High-grade men’s shoes are defined by the individual leather content. All of our men’s shoes boast a leather upper and an insole. Both inner linings and outsole are crafted from finest Italian leather and feature the sophisticated benefits like breathability, smoothness and a beautiful appearance. Timeless and understated, you can wear these shoes all day long in true comfort, from workday to weekend.
