Next new addition to the line-up is the Hobo Boot (RBHB v.3) done here in Waterproof Chromexcel Calf from Horween Leathers in Chicago. We have kept the details the same but added a Crepe sole – we love crepe and it really gives a heavy, sport look to what has become our trademark boot.

is now available from Stock!
Here is our first stock Chukka boot on the 42 last. This is a last we have used off and on over the years in the shop (Franco’s) and it has always been a great fitting last……nice shape, classic toe, good instep volume – easy fit. Details on RBCB10:
Highly water-resistent ‘Cape Butt’ suede from Stead
Full calfskin lining (as usual)
Heavy sole work – we use our standard Rapid Construction, use a second layer of crepe that we stitch to the leather midsole then cement the crepe outsole and heel to this crepe second sole. This makes for a very durable sole work and will help eliminate the one typical drawback to crepe soles – the seperation of the glued seam at the toe. We love crepe, and wanted to use it, but I thought we needed to solve this ‘problem’. We did.
So, introducing RBCB10:
RBCB10 is available at:
Franco’s Fine Clothier
J. Gilbert Footwear – Seattle Outpost
Also real excited to join the great offerings at JGilbert Footwear in Seattle!
We are starting with an early selection of the new 2 eyelet Cape Butt Suede chukka in Polo Brown as well as the RBCB6, which has been a great chukka in Mohawk Roughout Calf. Then, for Fall, we have some very interesting make-ups coming on-line with the folks there.
