Frequently asked questions
Why do your boots cost so much?
They are produced by a single craftsman, on a very small scale (one or two at a time), in Vancouver. They are not made in large batches in a factory in Portugal at the request of a businessperson. In fact, they cost a lot less than other similarly handmade boots.
What are your boots made of?
The upper section is made of a microfibre produced in Italy as a substitute for leather. The material is made specifically for footwear uppers and is very durable, unlike the "pleather" and naugahyde products of the past.
Which soles are available?
Do you make women's boots?
No, not yet, although I consider my current offerings to be unisex, in the sense that Doc Marten's are unisex.
Are your boots made-to-measure?
No, they are made-to-order. If I ask for your measurements, it is simply so that we can make the best choice from my available sizing options. The boots will not be custom made according to your measurements.
