We're generally rather humble about our work, modesty is a virtue. However, this is an occasion that calls for bombast; the Porter boot is the most beautiful boot we've ever made. Thanks, in part, to the stunning Genuine Shell Cordovan used to make them . We took natural, unglazed shell cordovan and dyed it by hand using specially formulated aniline dyes. These dyes penetrate the leather to give the Shell this incredible depth of color and rich finish. Making these custom colors of Shell Cordovan, like Espresso, is an exhausting 10 step process that includes applying three coats of dye and then waiting at least 24 hours for it to dry before adding the finishing top coats. The shell gets multiple layers of wax and special, all natural, proprietary finishing creams before being burnished and buffed to perfection. This quarter brogue cap-toe boot is all about the details, we've pulled out all the stops to present you with the best craftsmanship we could muster.

The Porter boot also includes the best pair of leather laces in the world. These jaguar laces in Dark Brown are specially formulated to be water proof and incredibly durable. The bottoms are a very popular combination of leather midsole with a leather storm welt and the Vibram #430 mini-lug sole in black. AA antique brass eyelets provide a solid foundation for these beautiful laces with the top two rows being "speed hooks" for easy on and off.

While the Porter Boot may look like a casual boot, the sophistication present in this masterpiece makes it very easy to pull off with a heavy weight wool or tweed suit or your favorite pair of jeans. It's best paired with wool trousers.
