The Genesee- A Jodphur Boot with a twist

  Dear All, Hope everyone is enjoying the festive period and more importantly enjoying Boot season. The change of seeing more and more boots around town is always interesting at this time of year. There are plenty of the usual chunky, misshaped boots that seem that the arctic would be more suitable and then there are some splendid looking dress boots out there too.

There are many theories behind how and when this style of boot came about but instead of delving […]

I have a feeling one will be coming soon. […]

The Updated Duck Boot

A lot of my inspiration as a shoe designer comes from shoes that were not necessarily ever part of the dress shoe industry but that had a look that intrigued me. Considering that I am part of the “classic” side of the shoe world, I have always thought about how to ‘dress-up’ these long time rugged classics so that they could integrate into my world. First I did my ‘Snoqualmie’ Hiking Boot and since then have been working on a modern day twist to LL Bean’s classic ‘Duck Boot.’ I have pretty much finalized them now (with only minor detail […]
