Exclusive for East West, the M43’s from Skoob are no fuss, lightweight, extremely versatile in style and fit, tough little boots that you will become your go to boots. They will look and feel great when they’ve shaped to your feet. Which won’t take long.
The leather is Horweens Natural Waxed Flesh. It is mid weight, very pliable and immediately comfortable. It’s a very popular leather with customers all over for its versatility and look. The leather starts off as a heavily waxed uniform roughout and with wear the wax gradually gives way to the roughout texture below showing a great contrast and heavy patina. If you are not keen on that result, you can easily re-wax them. Very versatile.
The shape/ last is shapely and a bit like a blank canvas for you to shape. It has a curved waist but when new they are fairly straight from heel to toe. They are soft toe’d (not structured) and the leather is very pliable so ready to take the shape of your feet as is expected with M43 styles. They are low toe profiled, average to slim in width but with good volume over the mid foot up to the ankle. They really are quite versatile and are ready to take your foots shape. One of the great things about them is that they feel very sturdy but very lightweight, almost like wearing heavier sneakers.
Construction & finish: Goodyear welted, very neat triple stitching throughout, leather lined, leather midsole and one piece layer of cork between insole and midsole for comfort. They are neat, the trimming and stitching is all very uniform and really just a well made easy pair of boots.
