El Don Boots Storm Blue

  • MK211255
  • Men

Luxe, Durable and Stylish. These are the three words that we and our artisans kept in mind when designing these shoes. Unlike our other mens boots, El Dons are a classic lace up boot with a leather on leather heel and a mix of single and double stitching for a more dressed up look. With a slightly narrow cap toe, these boots are perfect for a day in the office, a formal event or a cool outfit.

Featuring full-grain leather (as always), a pull tab, a rubber slip guard on the bottom soles, vegetable tanned leather soles, Goodyear Welted, and memory insoles. Read more about the expert technique of Goodyear Welt here.

How we make them

A craftsman cuts the leather by hand, choosing the leather carefully and making sure that he follows the grain of the leather, his expert eye tells him the best way to cut each piece. He then sews each piece with accuracy and exactness only seasoned cobblers have mastered. Each upper body is placed then in the shoe form and with skilled and strength, the master cobbler dresses the form and prepares it to attach the leather sole. The soles are then layered, one on top of another, he then cuts and sands the leather to perfection. Once the glue is dry the leather Artisan then carefully builds-up the finish with an expert’s eye, and touch, to achieve an aged patina in just the right places to reflect the aged qualities only time, wear, and frequent care could have accomplished naturally.
