Material: Vegetan Micro (Whats this?)
In our quest to make the ultimate cruelty-free shoes we have produced this range which incorporates our own brand of Airseal soles.These thick translucent soles provide excellent shock absorption, insulation and great grip. They are stitched and heat welded onto a Goodyear welt for strength and durability and take little 'breaking in'. As well as breathable and water-resistant uppers the very finest non-leather components have been selected to construct this footwear.These six-eyelet lace-up boots are made a little differently. Essentially they are made inside out! Or rather, with the ‘rough-side’, of the material, out. The micro-fibre material we are usually so proud to display has been turned around so that the usual grain pattern is now next to the foot and the equivalent of what would be the suede side is on the outside. Actually this is not a new idea but it’s the first time we have tried it with our material. Leather US military boots from the WW2 era were made like this. It makes for a very breathable boot, especially as there is no toe-stiffening. Each pair is a little different as the rear-side of this material was never made to be shown off. Some are slightly darker or lighter than the photo. But the boots come into their own once they have been worn for a while. Especially if they have been polished a few times. Being a neutral grey colour they can be treated with black or brown polish, or whatever colour you like. With the lack of the ‘toe-box’ the boots really mould and take on the shape of the wearers foot. The older they get the better they will look! We have shown an example here of a sample Rough Out Boot that we applied brown polish to and wore around the office for a day, -nice!
This style is regular UK size.Unlike some of the other Airseal styles, this style is a regular UK size.We try to give the best advice about sizing. Please remember sizes vary from style to style and brand to brand. The shape of the shoe can affect the fit as well as the length and width. If replacing a style with a newer version, remember shoes can stretch and mould and become looser over time. A new version of the same shoe can feel tighter and quite different to the old friends you have come to love. Shoes mould to the shape of your feet, more in the width than the length. If they are slightly snug in the width then they may give a little and become more comfortable. If the shoes or boots are tight lengthways then they are likely too small and you need to try the next size up. Lastly, remember that insoles can REALLY make a difference when trying to get the right fit. Ours are quite thick but thinner ones are also available. In addition to making footwear more comfortable insoles can also help shoes and boots last longer.
