Makers Bone Boots – Sand Suede Roughout


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

Makers Shoes make a great pair of boots and the Bone boots strike a great balance between smart chukka and more rugged field boot. They can easily be dressed up or down and are immediately very comfortable whilst being superbly made to last.

The Last: Feels great and is a good versatile fit for many a foot shape. They are generously shapely in the heel and mid foot to ball area and taper to a smart/ casual almond shaped toe so can comfortably be dressed up or down with ease. They’ve got a lovely shape with light arch support and leather covered padding to the heel and full leather insole for added support and comfort. The toe tapers so we recommend sizing up a half for wide/ splayed toes.

The Leather is a natural/ sand coloured rough out/ suede. It is mid to heavier weight with the smooth side on the inside so unlined. The leather and construction make them feel like a stripped back, sturdy yet lightweight pair of boots for everyday wear. They will just need a good wire brush here and there to keep them looking great.

Construction: Is stunning! They are Goodyear flat welted and it has been carried out very well. They are so very very neat. The Stitching is neat and very intricate, the trim and finish are equal and very neat also and just look and feel extremely well made and balanced. Great for those that love the near perfect.

The Bone boots are original, very comfortable and luxury and feel like that will last a very long time and look even better for it.

Made in Japan, see the details and sizing info for more information.
