THE WILSON BOOT
Named after the incredible show location for our AW21 collection and show, Pyrophyte, we are excited to launch the Wilson boot. I have always wanted to design footwear and a hiking boot seemed the most appropriate place to start.
The goal was to create a shoe that could be worn on and off the trail with ease. The Wilson is a slim fit made with sturdy materials to avoid making it feel too chunky.
HOW WE DID IT...
Like most things I start with functionality. I chose my favourite Vibram for the sole and worked my way up. We covered the seam where the upper is attached with a rubberised coating and finished the inside with a full leather lining that is shockingly comfortable.
For me, the lacing is the most interesting part--there are loads of ways to lace them with extra long laces in 3 colors. Finally, the hardware is the footwear equivalent of the hook hardware on all of our outerwear pieces. It’s a little branding tick without having to print logos anywhere.
The Wilson fits men and women and comes in EU sizes 36-48.
