Black Unicorn28th August, 2015
Black Unicorn is a full grain moosehide leather produced by one of England's oldest and most respected tanneries. Earlier this year we sourced a limited run of this unique leather and produced two distinct boots to highlight the versatility of this material.
Firstly, we made a Scout Boot using the roughout side of the leather which has a sueded texture with a long, uniform nap. The Mini Ripple sole and stacked leather wedge give the boot a casual feel, making for an interesting sneaker replacement in a streetwear oriented wardrobe.
Next up we used the grain side of the leather on a version of our classic Brogue Toe Service Boot. The pronounced grain and matte surface of the Unicorn leather result in a contemporary take on our oldest silhouette. A truly unique piece of footwear that is subtle enough to be worn in any scenario.
