The K7M Limited Edition of SEVEN Kustom Builds.

This signature boot design represents the Project K 2020 series, and was inspired by my families Kentucky-Missouri Folklore storytelling after receiving  a picture I was given of my Granddad running shine alongside his 1930 Sedan to make ends meet when the crops fell short of a profitable yield. 


The K7M Collaboration Boot between JD Gabbard and Carl Murawski features a unique modification to the original K7 Black over Blue Build of 2020.


The Limited K7M Edition Collaboration:

Features a Warm Emerald Green Hand ink dyed Treatment that Gabbard from KREOSOTE applies to each of the SEVEN Boots making them very unique, the multi ink dyed process is worked into a Natural Color of the Veg Tanned Leather hide yielding extremely warm rich green tones.


Each boot comes with a commemorative  KREOSOTE / MURAWSKI Brass Collectors coin.


Choosing  the uncommonly used Harness Drum-dyed, Full grain veg tanned hide from the American based "Wickett and Craig Tannery" of Pennsylvania established in 1867 for this boot because of its ability to resemble a type of leather that was used locally by German-American shoemakers throughout the Kentucky hill country back in the 1930s.  
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 Warm Green patina ages revealing the rich grain underneath. 


The 12 Iron Half-Soles are cut deeply into the feather line at the Waist and Breast of the Heel are stacked to create a Traditional shape with Natural Leather oiled dyed edges that are sanded and treated 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 this boot.
