Service Boot Toscanello Horsebutt7th January, 2019
The Service Boot in Toscanello Horsebutt is the first style we wanted to highlight from Drop One. This is a heavyweight, vegetable-tanned Horsebutt leather from a small artisanal tannery in central Italy. Named after a specific brand of cigar, Toscanello is a medium brown tone leather with a matte finish and irregular texture. As with many of the small-batch Italian leathers we source there is a slightly unfinished quality to it that typically allows for a faster and more significant patina to develop. While Italian tanneries are often known best for lightweight, supple leathers, we were able to source this Horsebutt in a heavy enough weight to produce an unlined version of our classic Service Boot. Along with the British Ridgeway sole, the combo makes for a low-maintenance, casual boot perfect for the transition into Spring.
