2019 Releases


Introducing the Kern - built for the long haul, with an extra focus on a lighter step, for full days on your feet without sacrificing the quality of construction you expect. Our industry-best XL Extralight® closed-cell foam outsoles are the difference maker and head turners. We'll spare you the details of the science, but there's not a lighter, more durable foam outsole in the world. These, combined with our PORON® memory foam footbeds, double the shock absorption and energy return of a standard Goodyear welted boot. 

Say hello to your go-to boot in the office, the streets, and maybe even in the sheets. We don't judge how or when you wear your boots.

The Shiloh boot - a fan favorite for years. After thousands of positive comments and great reviews, we challenged ourselves to make it even better.  Over the course of this last year we did just that - starting with the last, the foundation the boot is built on.  Once we perfected the last, we turned our attention to the materials & production processes of the boot. After more than a year of re-patterning, re-sourcing  materials, and re-sampling of prototypes, we've arrived at a boot that lives up to its legacy. 

What's new and updated;
  • Fit
