Sanders Boots For Fall

Sanders recently opened up their first online shop in an effort to provide customers directly with their renowned footwear.  Odds are that you've seen Sanders' work before as they make shoes for many of your favorite designers and footwear brands.  I've always been a huge fan of English shoe factories such as Sanders because they more or less have been making the exact sames shoes since day one - in Sanders' case, 1873.  My favorite collection (if you can even call it that) from Sanders is their Regent Country line, which also happens to be flush with great boots for the upcoming season.  These boots are timeless, as I just mentioned, and have incredible construction.  Each boot is storm welted (Goodyear welted), leather lined and equipped with quality soles that can take a serious beating.  In fact, all these boots can take whatever shit you plan on getting into this F/W - the prices are incredibly reasonable for what you're getting.  They're also more "traditional" in their designs than a Trickers and I prefer their looks to other competitors such as Grenson.  If you're looking for that one pair of boots that will last you winters to come (with a resoling or two of course) you probably want to check them out.  And don't bother whining about the shipping because, in the end, it's worth it.

  1. If there was a suede boot with a leather sole, I'd be all over it.

  2. The broguing makes a huge difference. It goes from pedestrian to amazing. The jaiphurs *sp* also look nice, but that belt would end up pissing me off and I wouldn't be able to wear them or have to AF1 it.

  3. Also, the pound is in the water closet, so a better deal than in years past.

  4. Been lusting after those brogue boots since the new Sanders site went live. Definitely my winter boots this year.
