Brass Screw Wire Construction

Our boots are individually handcrafted by a second-generation bootmaker using a very rare brass screw wire construction.

Brass screw wire is spun at high speed on a machine that screws the midsole, upper and insole together creating a super strong boot.

We use one of the last brass screw wire machines still in existence. This machine is from Leicester, England and dates back to the 1800's when the technique originated.

There are only a handful of manufacturers still using a brass screw wire construction to make boots.

New Zealand Leather

Our leather hides comes from farms in the North Island of New Zealand.

We have a very good climate for farming and our livestock are grass fed and roam freely which produces healthy high quality leather hides.

Our leather is tanned locally in one of the last tanneries in Australasia still producing finished leathers for boots.

THE BOOT. A true classic with a twist

We have held true to the original classic shape of THE BOOT. but we will eventually be designing other styles.

We want THE BOOT. to be versatile, to suit the life you lead, therefore we provide a number of different leather and sole options that not only change the aesthetic of the boot, but also its function.
