Deadstock Acorn Sand Type 01 On Sale Now – Limited Numbers

In January 2016 we released our Acorn Sand Type 01 desert boot in super limited numbers.

Made in Italy the way the desert boots used to be made, super high quality. We sold out in 24 hours.

In Sept this year we ran a survey from our existing customers to see if they wanted a new pair of the original Acorn Sand colour. Based on the response we created the Deadstock Acorn Sand.

Why deadstock? Well the Italian tannery that made this suede closed its doors some time ago. So this run is the last that can be made in this iconic colour.

We already started shipping the pre ordered pairs but we have a few extras in some sizes available today.


Two New Ltd Edition Desert Boots Colours Launched Today!

We know we’ve been absent for some time.

In fact, our last product launch was way back in March 2016, before Brexit caused the GBP to crash and burn. We thought we’d wait it out and see how things got towards the end of the year, by which time we had a deafening shout from existing and would-be customers – ‘we want more Hutton boots!’

Well, we listened and went back to basics for our new Sahara Sand Ltd Edition Type 01 boots. A truly great vintage colour – a variation of sand, of course, this time a with a touch of mousey grey beige. Natural un-dyed crepe soles of course. These are limited to 100 pairs and are already selling fast.

New Black Sand ‘Type 01’ Ltd to 50 pairs

Hutton Desert Boots Black Sand

While we were at it, we couldn’t ignore a further cry from our customers – ‘we want them in black!’

Well, our original idea was ‘any colour so long as it’s sand’ but of course there are such things as black sand volcanic beaches, right? So, our latest ‘Black Sand ‘Type 01’ Desert Boots were born. And, whilst beige and tan may be the most prolific colours for desert boots throughout the ages, there have been some high profile wearers of black suede desert boots even amongst the ivy fraternity.

After all, who can forget Anthony Perkins mopping up Janet Leigh’s blood in the bathroom of Cabin No1 in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho? Well, when you’ve seen the movie as many times as we have, it’s the clothes and shoes you look at. Sorry, Janet.

Truth be told, the black suede version of our cult ‘Type 01’ boot is pretty special. Like all our other colours, the boots are vegetable tanned leather, the soles are natural crepe, but this time we asked the factory to darken off the edges a little to give them a ‘noir-ish finish’. Perfect with dark coloured corduroy or knocking about in vintage Levis.

How To Clean Suede Desert Boots

Hutton Customer Mark’s Ltd Edition Acorn Sand Boots Ruined By Hot Oil and Chilli?

Since our launch in January this year, we’ve put nearly a couple of hundred pairs of Ltd Edition Hutton Desert Boots out into the world. With so many pairs walking around it’s inevitable that bad weather, accidents and in the case of one of our customers, Mark, waitresses with trays of hot oily food ready to dump on your nice new Ltd Edition Desert Boots, are going to take their toll.

Why Is It Only Our Favourite Items Get Damaged?

This is a problem that can face all of us, and seems to happen to our favourite items only when they’re irreplaceable.

However, there are some tips that can help if something bad happens to your suede boots and so with Mark’s permission we wanted to share some of the conversation in the hope that it may help you if your desert boots get inadvertantly splashed with copious amounts of Pad Thai or Chicken Madras.

Some Solutions Worth Trying to Clean Suede Desert Boots Before Consigning Them to History

Mark emailed us to see if we had any advice on how to clean suede desert boots.

New Ltd Edition Colour: Havana Sand Hutton Desert Boots

We had such an amazing response to our first production run of Hutton Desert Boots that we went back to the source and produced another limited edition 100 pairs in a fantastic tobacco brown we’re calling Havana Sand.

Our first run sold out of most sizes within a couple of days so if you missed them the first time around, or you just want to bag yourself another great colour, then don’t wait around. These will likely fly out, too.

Coming Down The Line

Making boots is a pretty slow business but we’ve been working away behind the scenes to develop more products for Hutton, so watch this space!

Our Incredible Hutton Launch Day!

Thanks to everyone who helped make our Hutton launch an incredible success!

We opened our online store yesterday, 28th January and 11am London time and by midnight we’d sold nearly 70 pairs of our 100 pair Limited Edition Type 01 Desert Boots. Truly amazing and so encouraging to know there were many others out there who felt the need for desert boots the way they used to be made.

Your support has definitely helped us with ‘proof of concept’ and we’ll be investing proceeds from the sale of our launch to develop more products, so watch this space.



Once Upon A Time All Desert Boots Were Made Like This…

Back in 2014 we’d become fed up with buying desert boots from well known brands where the quality was so variable and seemed to be determined by the colour you chose. Suedes that were stiff like plastic, man-made fibreboard inside, skimpy soles made of milled crepe that can get super slippery in the wet and made in faceless factories the far east. Prices seemed to go up, but sadly over time quality went down.

“Surely, it must be possible to make a better desert boot?”
