We knew it was only a matter of time before S.F.-based apparel artisans Taylor Stitch started branching out into footwear. And we knew they'd do it with the same perfectionism and panache that they bring to all their products.
On the heels of their glorious Trench Boots, the T.S. crew has unleashed another pair of waterproof suede beauties, this time in an iconic hiking boot style that can easily transition from the boulders of Colorado to the cobblestones of Brooklyn.
The Hiker Boot in Chocolate Weatherproof Suede, now available for pre-order, is cut low for comfort and ease of wear with narrower trousers, with light construction that won't slow you down without sacrificing anything in the way of durability.
They're made in Mexico from responsibly-sourced waterproof suede, with a replaceable Vibram lug sole and a Goodyear Storm Welt. Not to mention a deerhide padded collar around the ankle, a fully lined leather insole, foam padding beneath that for instant comfort and no break-in, and antique brass D-ring metal eyelets.
Now go forth and conquer....
