Finding the right dress boot is always a challenge, It seems like they're always too dressy or too casual. What good does a boot do you when it has a leather sole? That doesn't work for winters in the Northeast. The Fore Street Boot arose out of the desire to create the perfect, all-around, dress boot. We truly feel like we struck the perfect balance; it's dressy without sacrificing comfort, and it's versatile without sacrificing sophistication.

First, we crafted the uppers from the finest French calfskin tanned in Italy. This particular leather was specifically developed for us to match with our antiquing and burnishing techniques. We add layers of antiques to build a base of color and then burnish the leather with waxes on a fabric wheel. The process is very time consuming but it's the only way to really add some life to this beautiful leather.

Second, the uppers are fully lined with premium cowhide leather lining. The leather lining gives the lightweight calfskin the structure and durability that you demand in a pair of boots.

Third, we had the brass eyelets coated and matched to the exact color of the leather. This is a sophisticated touch that supports that balance of dress/casual. The top two speedhooks make lacing and taking the boots on and off a breeze.

lastly, we used our brand new, exclusive, Reltex Lactae Hevea "Shaker" sole. You've heard us preach about the heavenly qualities of Lactae Hevea soles before (supreme comfort, tremendous durability, 100% natural materials), but the Shaker sole takes us to a whole new level. We developed this as a more formal alternative to the crepe version. The bottom is textured for traction but retains a low profile and clean looking silhouette that is perfect for dressy boots. We also increased the thickness of the sole to add a little extra cushion in your step.

The Fore Street Boot is part of our new Limited Edition collection. We make up a small number of really special footwear, and when they're gone, they're gone. All sizes listed here are ready and available for immediate shipment, for a limited time if you need a width other than D (medium) please contact us and we can make you a pair.
