Below 10 degrees? It must be Boot Time!

The weather in England has finally noticed that it is November. After the warmest Halloween night on record, the temperature finally dropped so that our traditional 5th of November, Bonfire Night could be spent in scarves, gloves and hats.

(In brief, Halloween or All Hallows Eve revolves around the theme of using humour and ridicule to confront the power of death, whilst  Bonfire Night celebrates Guy Fawkes failure to blow up the House of Lords and King James 1 in 1605).

Anyway, enough of history, colder weather means boots, so here are a few recent commissions!

Stalking boots in green, oiled Nubuck with a bellows tongue, leather sole and ridged rubber heels/sticker sole




 

and in the same style in Horween Latigo with golf studs, rubber soles and cleats for extra grip on the hillsides. 







Tall, plantation boots with straps to close off the boot upper to keep the creepy-crawlies out!




 

  

A pair of ladies' knee boots with an elegant toe and front seam.





Soul-full, suede desert boots with beautiful scarlet linings.








And finally, THE riding boots...



We'll be kicking up the autumn leaves and cosying up to a roaring fire this weekend. Until next week happy shoe making!
