Looking to get into some suede boots this year? If you’ve ran down your Iron Rangers, mobbed in your moc toes, and now want some sleek service boots – look no further than Grant Stone‘s Diesel Boot in Bourbon suede.
First, I’m gonna wax about the Diesel Boot for a minute. A service boot made on a very regular last that’s low profile but not dainty, they just hit that sweet spot between rugged and smart which means you can pair them with just about anything. They’ll work with more fitted trousers for a well-prepared office or business look, right the way down to wide-fitting repro denim with a nice bit of swing to the cuff.
Now, let me dial in on this specific rendition of the Diesel Boot. Grant Stone has made this one up in a nappy brown calf suede from the Charles F. Stead tannery in England and with a mini-stud rubber outsole for traction. Made in Xiamen, China with recraftable 360 Goodyear Welt construction, each pair is finished with 7 eyelets (three of them speedhooks), a leather insole, and two sets of laces – cotton or leather.
