Wesco® - 10" Horsehide "Mister Lou" Engineer Boot - "The Purpetrator" (PRE-ORDER)

WESCO-MRLOU-PUR-DEPOSIT Seasonal or Limited Run

No tax




Introducing our latest collaborative build with Wesco®, “The Purpetrator”. A by-product of Giles getting his hands on Maryam Leather's sample pack and picking what is quite possibly the most ludicrous full veg tanned colour they have on offer. The final product is a sight to behold! The opulence of the purple-tanned Italian horsehide is humbled by vintage triple stitching and brass hardware.

Giles has been putting his sample pair through their paces, you can follow their evolutionary progress here on the forum.

All other features of the "Mister Lou" remain the same, like a Dr. Sole half outsole and heel a 1 1/2" heel

Named after Wesco® boots' very own workshop pup, the "Mister Lou" horsehide engineer boots are a true ode to thoroughbred boot making. Built on the Motor Patrol 1339 last, a streamlined leg shaft designed to fit under slim-cut jeans, a narrower heel pocket to help eliminate heel slip, vintage Engineer triple upper stitching, and brass hardware. These boots are man's best friend.
