The most “rock’n’roll oriented” boots we ever made. This time with no compromise. With the new tapered and sleeker last, the slight higher “Cuban” heel, this model represents our version of the real 60’s zippered boots. After being very popular among artists and musicians in those years ( Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles and many others used to wear bespoke versions of them), in the last three decades classic shoemakers totally ignored these boots, and only fashion brands are producing similar models nowadays. What we wanted to do was to recover that look and feeling, making them with a better quality and with our typical style, in order to give back to these timeless classic boots the greatness they deserve. Higher and very tight on the ankle, in waxed or soft suede or in calfskin, these boots are perfect for a real “rocknroller-style”. As part of our “nero is the new black” collection, even the lining of this model is black. Not for your white collar friend.
This version is made of kudu leather. Kudu is an antelope known for its very particular skin. This allows to obtain shoes and accessories with a different “flavour” and unique feeling. They have strong character and a real rugged look. They are also waxed and finished by hand, so every pair is different from the other.
