Diesel Boot Saddle Tan Veg

The word "Diesel" reminds us of something which may not be flashy but an object which is built for strength and longevity. This is our rendition of the basic plain toe boot pattern made with proven leather uppers, lining, insole and outsole. The kicker is the Leo last being utilized on a boot pattern which offers exceptional support and comfort. 

The Saddle Tan leather is one of our favorites. This vegetable tanned article is tanned in one of Italy's boutique tanneries which specializes in the process. The leather is placed in a 'Bottali' which is a large barrel that rotates allowing the organic tanning substances to stay in contact with the article. A complete cycle may take 30 - 35 days.

This leather is tough, has the scent of an old saddle room and the squeak of your favorite tooling leather.

*The leather can have prominent vamp breaks and a variation of colors. Since this is a very light colored vegetable tanned article, there may be areas on the boot which have darker hues.*

Fit Guide +

The Leo last features a snug heel fit with a slightly wider forepart. It runs a little large so we suggest going down half a size from your Brannock device size. For example, if you measure a 10D on the Brannock device, we suggest a size 9.5.

If you are unsure of your size, please send us an email and we will do our best to point you in the right direction!
