Rooted in the dense forest of Alsace in Eastern France, Ateliers Heschung began almost 80 years ago as a family of shoemakers designing boots capable of withstanding its region’s specific climate and terrain. Taking that valued history and weaving it with today’s menswear resurgence, the French brand aims to update the timeless classics we have all grown to love with simple updates from experienced craftsmen. Inching closer to that centennial mark, Ateliers Heschung offers the above preview to its 2013 spring/summer collection. From driving moccasins to the perennial brogue, the French shoemaker adds bold coloring, Norwegian welts, serrated soles, mixed materials and much more to shoes that have been lining our closets for decades. Standouts include a suede boot with canvas upper and double lacing system as well as a casual, rubber-soled blue suede chukka that is unfortunately not featured. With that said, get a closer look at Ateliers Heschung’s forthcoming collection with options to buy here.
