Since the introduction of beef as primary source of meat for humans, cowhide became the leading choice of leather used in the production of leather jackets and boots. Engineer boots, much like any boot model, are meant to last a lifetime.
So it goes without saying, a horsehide boot should be your life-long companion. The true characteristics of horsehide are only revealed when the hide is pit tanned, using vegetable tannin. While cow-hide may be satisfactory for shine, and chrome tanned horsehide would be preferred when optimising for durability, it is pit vegetable tanned leather that can truly epitomise the best of both.
Designed for motorcycle riders to protect the feet and lower leg whilst riding. The leather has a perfect shine after each clean. US sizing applies.
