The seasonless unlined hiker has range. This shoe can be worn in the summer without socks or in the winter with socks. The construction features a Vibram Gumlight lugged outsole that will last for years. This is your 365 days a year boot.
Each pair includes both square leather and cotton laces.
The Hand Sewn Hiker is built by hand from start to finish by one master craftsman using an advanced Goodyear construction technique that produces a superior shoe.
The seamless one piece upper of the shoe is made from a single piece of leather hand stitched at the heel. Gusseted tongue reinforces the water-resistant construction. Shoe is left on the last for 10 days where light steam and humidity are used to tighten the leather and enhance shape and fit. Buffalo leather is used for the footbed.
The leather is dyed with natural pigments so that the hide retains its natural state and ages richly over time. The superior construction technique and use of natural materials ensure that the shoe breathes and does not retain sweat or odor.
This shoe runs a half size large. An extra cork and buffalo leather insole is included with each pair to assist with in-between sizing.
