Brandle Boots

Brandle, a subsidiary of Nick's Handmade Boots, has emerged from a 60-year tradition of bootmaking excellence.

In keeping with unwavering dedication to superior quality, Brandle crafts its boots in exclusive, small-scale runs, limiting production to just 20 pairs each month. This intentional strategy guarantees that every aspect receives the full attention of the maker.

These truly beautiful boots cost ample, but if you are going to show longtime love to your feet, give them ample consideration.

BRANDLE 1925 - from $1,200.00 USD

Borden Boots

Borden has looked to subvert the traditional retail model. A commitment to minimize wasteful, excessive inventory sees them sourcing raw materials straight from the suppliers, ranging from leathers to threads. By cutting down on the extra costs in the production chain, they've managed to reduce the retail price while offering beautiful, freshly-made-to-order boots directly from the factory.

Unmarked Boots

The inception of UNMARKED was driven by Hugo Fonce's singular ambition: to design a modern shoe that reflects the significance of tradition and creates a memorable impact. Hugo referenced the olden days, honing his shoemaking skills, drawing inspiration from Charles Goodyear's 1869 invention, seeking to integrate the legacy of Mexican shoe craftsmanship.

Over the past decade, Hugo has refined this method, experimenting with novel materials and blending various techniques. The result is a collection of footwear that not only echoes its historical counterparts but also encourages a fresh perspective on heritage.
