Dr. Sole 1122 Raw Cord Sole

Dr. Sole 1122 Raw Cord Sole Technical Drawing

Inspired by the cork soles of the famous U.S.N. N-1 "Field Boot" used in WWII, the 1122 includes numerous improvements, including greater durability, shock absorption, and a reduction in weight. Perhaps the most notable improvement is its traction which comes courtesy of the pulverized hemp cord embedded into the nitrile rubber compound. Each sole is affixed to a thick layer of leather and paired with a matching Dr. Sole 1102w Raw Cord Heel.

Seidel® Bark Veg Retan

Seidel Tannery Logo

Developed by Seidel exclusively for Oak Street Bootmakers, this full-grain, twice-tanned leather has a soft, matte finish with a fine nap more akin to nubuck than suede or roughout. Despite being lightweight and soft-to-the-touch, this is a firm-handed hide with all the durability one would expect of a top-tier boot-grade leather. Such "soft strength" is made possible by being tanned in chrome and again in a bath of bark and vegetable oils. This eliminates the need for hot-stuffing and wax finishing typical of a chrome tannage—so despite feeling soft and supple, the leather retains a more natural and raw appearance.
