Oakstreet Bootmakers: Natural Trench Boot

Oak Street Bootmakers Natural Trench Boot

America wasn’t built by bankers wearing brogues. This country was built by brutes wearing boots. America was built on hard-working boots and your wardrobe should be too. Buy the right ones and you’ll have ‘em for life.

Allow us to introduce you to a bucket list boot, Oakstreet Bootmakers Natural Trench boot, made from Chromexcel. Horween Chromexcel, from the Horween tannery in Chicago, is the holy grail of boot leather. In its natural state, it will develop a beautiful patina over time (a hallmark of high quality leather) so these boots will look great the first day you get them and even better in ten years.

The trench boots also sport Waterlock soles and a stacked leather heel with Vibram toplift. Puddles beware. But the best materials alone are not enough. These boots are made using Goodyear welt construction, the best shoemaking technology since the Civil War. The goodyear welt is also 100% recraftable, so you really can own these boots for life.
