These Brawlers sport a rugged waxed leather upper. The combination with the minimal pattern creates a look of intrigue and uniqueness. The color is 'truffle': a greyish dark brown that flaunts greenish or reddish undertones depending on what light you're in. Finished on a raw welt and commando sole, we get a robust yet refined, super versatile shoe: suit-and-tie, denim-and-flannel, or anything in between: it'll work magnificently.
Crafted using the traditional Goodyear welt method and with all European leather, so rest assured: this pair is built to last. Waxing leather is a traditional and effective way of weatherproofing footwear. The full leather lining gives your feet breathability, while the cork footbed takes on the shape of your foot over time. This rubber commando sole is the most flexible we've used to date, yet has the sturdiness needed to give you stability on any terrain.
The Place & People:
Made in Europe from sketchbook to stitch. The Brawler is thoughtfully designed in Belgium and skillfully built in Portugal by craftspeople who've perfected their trade over generations.
