Our 8" Engineer pattern is a nod to vintage American motorcycle boots. For the first time we've produced this boot on our new 2050 Last which we originally developed for our Chelsea pattern. The slimmed down profile and almond shaped toe are truer to the vintage styles we are referencing and provide a snug, locked down fit. Similarly, the Black Horsebutt, which is heavy enough for use on a motorcycle, is the perfect choice for this classic style. Japanese roller buckles and a deadstock Cats Paw Sole round out the era appropriate details.
