OUR CRAFT

We make boots the right way—in small batches with an obsessive attention to quality. We designed our own last, so the boot fits your foot better. We work exclusively with Horween leather, which is used by the world’s best shoemakers. And we brewed strong coffee, for the late nights we spent poring over every minute detail—from eyelets to insoles—so we could craft the best boot possible.

    A boot is only as good as its leather.

    So we use the best, Horween Leather. They’ve been tanning since 1905, and are the choice for the world’s finest shoemakers, so they’re our choice too.

    Back to the drawing board.

    We designed these boots from scratch. We built our own last, for better fit. Our own footbed, for more comfort. And our own style, because the world doesn’t need more of the same.

    Comfort technology where it counts, under your foot.

    Our proprietary triple density polyurethane footbed has a deep heel cup and arch support complemented by two-gel pads to absorb impact. We know that’s a mouthful, but trust us—your feet will thank you.

    Good foundations build great structures.

    A great boot starts with a great last. We crafted a last with the perfect fit in mind—a roomy toe box, contoured instep, a heel that will not slip, and with style to boot.

A closer look at our boots

  • Leather 2

    Chromexcel® is the original pull-up leather; using time honored techniques and formulas that were developed nearly 100 years ago. Chromexcel® is still produced in the United States using a bark retannage from a proprietary recipe, and then "hot stuffed" with Horween's secret blend of natural oils and greases.

  • Canvas 2

    The Waxide® #10 waxed cotton canvas is manufactured using a proprietary process. This age old product creates a wearable, water resistant layer that uses natural paraffin waxes impregnated into the canvas for total protection.

  • Welt 3

    Our leather storm welts are hand crafted from the finest vegetable tanned leather bends available. The natural welts are unstained highlighting the beauty of the leather. Yes even welting is beautiful.

  • Eyelets 2

    We start with the highest quality 10 mm copper eyelets and backing washers and add a corrosion resistant titanium finish by anodizing the eyelets inside and out. Our signature Boston Boot Red eyelet makes this hardware stand out above the rest.

  • Stitching 2

    We want every stitch in our boots to be strong as possible, so every stitch is sewn with the utmost precision and care. It’s a detail others overlook, and one we obsess over.

  • Outsole 1

    The high compression molded rubber outsole was developed to be 40% lighter and highly durable. Our unique tread design helps the foot to flex in a natural way proving our commitment to comfort. These boots were made for walking.

Our Story

Our decades in the shoe business have taken us all around the world, but to craft the boot we’ve always wanted to build, we looked to our home for inspiration. As proud Bostonians, we sought to craft a boot in our city’s image. Boots that achieve beauty by striking a balance between classic style and innovative thinking. Rugged and practical. Refined but lacking pretense, and of course, like Boston, they’re ready for whatever Mother Nature dishes out.
