Developed to embody the character of Chicago, the Elston last is engineered specifically for our line of Everyday Boots, providing exceptional all-day comfort for nearly all foot types with a generous toe box.
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.
The flesh side of Seidel's Oil Tan Leather, which is extraordinarily soft and supple, dyed with rich pigments all the way through the hide for deep and long-lasting color. It’s finished with a light oil, which gives it a matte surface with a subtle but distinctive sheen.
