“CREATING A CUSTOM DESIGN FOR ALLEN EDMONDS WAS SUCH AN HONOR FOR ME. AS A DESIGNER YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO MAKE SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR YOUR AUDIENCE. I SELECTED THE MOTO STYLE BECAUSE IT'S A CLASSIC. IT'S VERSATILE AND IF IT’S MADE RIGHT AND FITS WELL, A PIECE YOU WILL HAVE FOR SEASONS TO COME.” – Armando Cabral
THE ARMANDO CABRAL TOUCH
Armando worked with our design team, 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.
MADE IN PORT WASHINGTON
Each pair is handcrafted by our experts in Port Washington, Wisconsin. The leathers are hand cut, the uppers are hand stitched, and the construction is hand welted. Each pair is touched by over 48 highly skilled hands before it’s boxed, packaged and shipped to you.
100% OF THE PROCEEDS GO TO CHARITY
Armando's intention is to use his talent and craft to contribute to a better society. With that in mind, all the proceeds from this limited-edition collaboration will be donated to philanthropic organizations. Each pair purchased supports education and development in Africa and social justice efforts here in the United States, both causes with deep personal meaning for Armando.
