I often have the need to wear tough Desert Boots and I would like to put in an order with Richard at Shoe Healer for what, in my mind, would be the ultimate boot for my requirements.
As I will be wearing these in the kind of places where one doesn’t want to draw attention to detail, I am not looking for a “bling” fashion boot. I want a discreet, top quality, boot.
Here are the specs that I propose:
Burford Boot on 4497s last, Fitting 5.
Gaucho Repello Suede.
Natural Barbour Welt.
Brown Dainite Sole.
Vintage Green Calf Lining.
Brown Pull Loops.
Four Brass Eyelets, Three Brass Ski-Hooks.
I have posted a couple of images of suede Burfords, with ski-hooks (in other colours) and some of Stows in the Gaucho Repello.
Richard has said that the waiting times are growing, so if you would like a beautiful late-spring/early summer Desert Boot, please let me know as soon as you can.
There is already some interest ... we only need 3 more!
If you are interested, or if you have any questions about the boot, please contact Richard at Shoe Healer: firstname.lastname@example.org
