visvim releases a new take on the classic leather boot. Not straying from original bootmaking traditions, the LAFAYETTE BOOT-FOLK utilizes timeless techniques coupled with premium materials to achieve a final product.
Coming in black, dark brown, and sand the LAFAYETTE BOOT sees a mixed upper made from Swedish-sourced cow suede that’s matched with The Horween Leather Company‘s vegetable-tanned cow leather at the heel; the result is a two-toned look that plays with textures and shape when viewed at different angles. The boot is finished off with contrast stitching, a natural cork insole, and a Dainite rubber outsole that’s affixed via Goodyear welt construction.
Those interested in these handmade boots can head over to visvim.tv where they retail for a price of ¥116,000 JPY (approximately $1,040 USD).
