About Type 01s
We call these our Type 01 because they go back to very roots of the Desert Boot, hand made with premium materials. Each boot takes many dozens of steps to make and features the natural flexibility and comfort of plantation crepe. Pure organic latex sustainably collected from rubber plantations. Each sheet of plantation crepe has to be cured before it is stable enough to use for footwear. The premium leathers are from Italian family owned tanneries, including those using eco and vegetable tanning processes. Even the laces and boxes for our boots are sourced locally to our factory. Once upon a time this would have been possible in England, but these days we are thankful to our Italian partners who have kept these craftsman traditions alive for a new generation of discerning customers.
