Leather boots have amassed a cult following of fans, and rightfully so. Leather boots come in different shapes, sizes and utility purposes in a range of leather materials and craftsmanship. This gentleman’s shoe is highly durable and a must-have for every season. At Urban Shepherd Boots, we treat shoemaking like it’s an art, handcrafting each boot with high-quality materials. The company is founded on principles of craftsmanship, quality, and careful production. Our boots are handcrafted at a small, family-owned workshop in Benedita, Portugal where footwear has been made for five generations. Only natural leather materials are used in making Urban Shepherd Boots and we never use engineered or reconstituted leather. All of our leather is sourced locally in nearby Alcanena, Portugal, where many of our tanneries have been producing leather using traditional methods for over 100 years. Here’s throwing some much-deserved limelight on 3 boots that are must-adds in your shoe wardrobe right now.
The CITY offers our laid-back take on the Chelsea Boot. Featuring our signature red stitching and a casual boxed toe, this boot can transition from day to night. The water-resistant waxed Portuguese leather ages handsomely, revealing a stunning patina over time, while the Vibram® half-sole and heel protector ensure the CITY will last season after season. Much like our quintessential Urban Shepherd Boots, the CITY is made with genuine leather midsole and heel counter, hand-laid cork footbed, hand-shaped stacked leather heels, and Genuine Goodyear Welt Construction, a durable welt process that allows our boots to be resoled repeatedly.
Pair these shoes with literally anything and everything and it will leave you in awe of its versatility. Pro tip: match your bag with the color of your boots for a more on-point look.
