Addict Service Boots – Brown Horsehide


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: , , , ,

Addict Clothes Japan make very well designed and constructed clothing. They’ve now ventured into boots and they’ve done it very well. The lasts, construction, materials and style are all top notch, made to last and have a very luxurious feel to them. These are super comfortable boots from the get go.

The service boots have been made on their low toe last which is low and mid to wider in width. It is shapely in the waist, fairly flat with some arch support and has a nice rounded almond shape toe making them equally great for casual or smart wear. It is a very comfortable shape and fit for a wide range of feet. The low profile aspect also doesn’t feel too tight over the ball and toes but has a low profile style.

The leather is a deep Brown Horsehide. It is a very nice leather. It is thick but very pliable/ soft to touch. It is very oily in feel, has very subtle grain and colour variation but is very rich in depth of colour. This leather will age beautifully and develop some very nice Horsehide rolls over time.

The construction is superb! The stitching is very neat, the best components have been used throughout (see the details tab) and the finish is very high. They have been trimmed in very well and all is very neat. They are leather lined and have a cushioned heel to the leather insole for extra comfort. They also come with an extra leather insole for fit adjustment if you should need when they have broken in. Class!

If you are looking for a stylish, low profile and easy fitting boot that is very well made in a luxurious Horsehide then look no further.
