Made to Measure (MTM) Boot

Full Payment at time of Ordering.


Project K 2020 Kinfolk series.


Featuring a unique Harness Drum-dyed 5 oz Full grain veg tanned hide from "Wickett and Craig Tannery"established in 1867 for this boot because of its ability to resemble the type of leather that was used locally by German-American shoemakers throughout the Ohio-Kentucky hill country.  
It takes a twice Dyed Oil Ink Treatment beautifully and the properties in the grain on this hide are exceptional to work with, achieving a shorter overall break in time in as the Black Walnut patina ages revealing the Brown grain underneath.


The Leather / Rubber Half-Soles are "Straight Cut" at the Breast of the Heel into the feather line at the Waist and stacked to create a Traditional shape with Jet Black oiled dyed edges that are Cold Burnished and re-dyed reveling each layer of Leather with a different aging effect. 


Every aspect of this boot build is uniquely technical and follows traditional European shoemakers methods, the clients personal outlined foot tracing and width measurements are required for boot.
