Desert Boot Dark Veg Tan

£199.00

This luxurious full grain pure vegetable tanned leather from Italy has a drummed finish which brings out the soft natural grain. You won't believe how soft the 2mm leather feels as it effortlessly conforms and flexes to the shape of your feet for a slipper like feel. With key reinforcements to the topline and eyelet areas, our unlined construction is perfect to be enjoyed during the warmer months, summer after summer. Full 3mm leather insoles with padded leather heel socks made from a very special pure veg tanned leather with natural anti-bacterial properties resultant from its tannage.

Plantation rubber crepe soles complete the classic desert boot specification for a flexible and cushioned walking experience, the natural way. Choose a hard wearing Vibram sole, if you prefer. Beechwood shank included for arch support.

Please note that the natural finish will vary between each pair of shoes and is part of the charm of this leather, as well as the way it patinas over time. The appearance of your pair may differ in grain appearance to the pictures; this is how natural leather grain looks, full of depth and life versus the printed stuff.

Sizing Information

Please use the table below as a guide. To measure foot length, you need a flat surface adjacent to a vertical plane such as a wall or cupboard. Place a ruler on the ground and butt it up against the wall, then stand next to it with your heel pushed against the same wall and take the measurement to the tip of your toe. You are looking for the longest measurement, so this might not always be at your big toe.

Alternatively, place a sheet of paper on the ground and butted up to the wall as above, stand on it with your heel against the same wall, and mark with a pencil around your longest toe. Hold the pencil at a slight angle to get the nib closer in to your toe to take account for the thickness of the pencil. Take care not to draw your line underneath your toe, giving a false measurement. Next, measure the length from the heel end of your paper to the pencil line.

Our lasts run true to size according to Standard Last Length measurements. If you are unsure which size to choose after taking your measurement, contact us and we will compare you measurement to our lasts for the most suitable size.

Looking at the table below, we give the shoe inside length by size. You want your foot length to be between 10-15mm under this measurement. If you prefer a little extra width for your little toe, choose a size closest to your foot length + 15mm.
