The Legend Series
Remastering OUR Icons With Legacy Makers
Collaborative partnerships founded on the belief that essentials made to last reign supreme and authenticity is vital. We’re honored to team up with craftspeople who share our commitment to quality and integrity.
Patrick’s life’s work is a mission, philosophy and strategy. A believer in American artisanship and in creating opportunities in communities throughout our country. Committed to thoughtful designs, expertly made using responsibly sourced materials. Crafting products that are wearable and usable everywhere our lives may take us. That’s why we invited him into our series of limited-edition collaborations.
Introducing the Humble, Curiosity Slip-on
A boot that expresses genuine sculptural beauty, while being functional. Every tiny stitch is there to clearly and concisely communicate its meaning. Effortlessly comfortable, it will only get softer with each wear, whether you’re walking in the wilderness, merging into traffic or cruising at 35,000 feet. Handcrafted in Port Washington, Wisconsin by our artisans.
Black selvedge denim woven in Louisiana on looms from the famous White Oak plant is his blank canvas. Artist and Designer Victor Lytvinenko hand paints each piece, envisioning the shoe it will become. It’s then given to our artisans in Port Washington for precision cutting, sewing and assembling into our Strand oxford on the same machines that have built thousands of shoes in the hands of those makers.
Individual Masterworks in the Making
The meaning of what we wear is as important as the piece itself. We build classics designed to make you feel different, more up for adventure, ready to grow. Pieces of the canvas used to create your individual shoes are included with your pair of one of 22 Strand oxfords. An individual masterwork that’s uniquely yours.
“I want things to feel personal to everyone that puts on anything I’m part of designing. A one of one piece of wearable art is something no one else will ever have but you.”
In 1894 John Barbour founded his company in South Shields, England with a focus on sturdy, functional “wet weather wear.” This season we’re proud to collaborate with this storied, family-owned maker on an exclusive version of our Higgins Mill boot and one of their celebrated jackets, each built with a commitment to incredibly durable materials and exceptional craftsmanship that both our brands share.
Higgins Mill Barbour Boot
The special-edition Higgins Mill boot we created with Barbour features a corduroy padded collar, waxed cotton tongue and cotton tartan lining, all materials used in their famous outerwear.
Evelar Waxed Jacket
This update to the Evelar waxed cotton jacket includes a nod to our rich heritage with our tri-color flag on the side seam.
As two footwear makers that share a passion for creating, we invited Armando to work with our designers and create his version of our moto boo. 1/100 limited drop with 100& of the proceeds being donated to Armando’s philanthropic efforts to benefit the African community and important social justice causes.
THE DISCOVERY MOTO BOOT BY ARMANDO CABRAL
Bringing his hand and ability to nuance the smallest details that transform a style from something amazing to astounding. Starting with our eco-friendly, vegetable-tanned leathers and chrome-free suedes, Armando added a harness strap and heavy buckle in addition to widening the tooth of the stitching and selecting a lighter thread color for additional contrast. Each detail is inspired by the authenticity and attitude of a traditional moto boot, juxtaposed with our modern silhouette. He developed two color options, each unique and distinctive. In snuff suede the boot has a more casual look, while in all-over black leather with a black sole, it instantly feels extra sleek.
