Urban Shepherd Boots is re-launching in the USA. This line of handcrafted boots is inspired by traditional Portuguese working-class boots from the 1950s. The same heritage and craftsmanship that Urban Shepherd was built upon will remain, and the boots will continue to be crafted in a Portuguese workshop with four generations of boot-making experience.
This brand was founded by two Portuguese friends in January 2014, who were searching for identity and for a way to express ideas, values and conceptions about morality and ethics. Craft is a great way to express all of these ideas. A craftsman does not make things in mass, but instead, makes individual products full of effort, passion and beauty. Therefore, the vision was to manufacture a line of premium boots in Portugal, with artisan methods that would maintain that original appearance of 1950’s work boots.
Today, Urban Shepherd is making a significant investment in North America, with the brand now being based out of Houston. Texans are known for their great sense of style and their desire to find that perfect pair of boots, so the newly focused brand is excited to be bringing these high-quality products to the United States.
Crafted by hand and inspired by history, Urban Shepherd Boots is a line full of timeless styles, such as the Rancho, Lake, Country, City, Scout and the new Original, which is the world’s most comfortable hiking boot.
