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 Western Zip boots have been made on their low upturned toe last which is low profile (but fine across the toes) and wider in width. It is shapely in the waist, fairly flat underfoot with some arch support and has a rounded shaped toe giving plenty of toe width whilst 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 doesn’t feel too tight over the ball even for wide feet and toes but has a low profile style.

The leather is a very plush Black Horsehide. It is a very nice leather. It is thick but very pliable/ soft to touch. It is very oily in feel so not a dry/ crisp leather and has very subtle grain variation. 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 cow 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. The heavy duty brass zip is custom for Addict and is solid. Class!

If you are looking for a stylish, low profile and easy fitting boot (see sizing tab for more info) that is very well made in a luxurious Horsehide then look no further.

Made in Japan. Please see the sizing tab for fit details.

The Addict Western Zip boots are made on their upturned flat toe last which is low profile but with plenty of volume for the average foot/ toes. It is a very versatile last that feels fairly wide like a generous D width to E width with good toe wiggle room. The upturned toe will flatten gradually with wear also. It is immediately very comfortable with some fairly standard arch support and is good for a wide variety of foot shapes. A word to the heavier footed, if you have high arches or a heavier back of foot then as with many engineers and slim shaft and opening boots, they will not be easy to get on.
