Fire Aging

The “Aged by Fire” process uses the power of flame to emulate the patina formed by years of wear. Each pair of “Aged by Fire” boots is hand-customized to order, so all sales are final. Please allow 4-8 weeks for delivery.

Boot Care

Here are a few tips to help care for your new purchase. Treat them right, and they will be your lifelong companion.

Break Them In

Real leather is stiff but gives with wear. After 2-3 wears, they will stretch and mold to your feet. Wear thick socks at first to add some support until they break in.

Protect Them

A natural leather dressing will keep your boots from cracking and will help to waterproof them.

Let Them Breathe

To keep your boots hydrated, keep them at room temperature. Avoid storing your boots in plastic bags.

Urban Shepherd boots are handcrafted at a small, family-owned workshop in Benedita, Portugal where boots have been made for five generations. Only the highest quality materials are used in making Urban Shepherd Boots. We use only natural leather and high-quality components. 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.

Fits true to size. Will take 2-3 wears to break in and mold to your foot.
