New boots and Kickstarter 2 - a teaser

Hello, once more, dear readers and welcome to another gripping post in the epic that is the Carreducker blog.

This week we received a lovely pair of bespoke boots from the tree maker with their three piece boot trees made bespoke to the boots

They are a version of our classic Broguerama boot of 2004, but in Madeira blue calf and tweed with a natural finish on the sole and heels. The red lining and blue laces really finish them off. Quite a statement and rather handsome.

They are fully hand stitched on a bespoke last.

And here's a little taster of things to come....Kickstarter II The Desert Boot
