Our second special collaboration boots with our good friends at Wesco. This time around, we build one of our personal faves boots models; yes, no other than the Engineer Boots style.
The latest Oldblue X Wesco collaboration boots is a true fusion between function and style. Still with the same persona as the 1st boots collaboration boots where we combined two different leather materials and colors. We utilized two exquisite kinds of leathers; the Horween Burgundy CXL Horsehide and Wesco’s Signature British Tan Cow Hide. It’s pretty an understatement to say that both of those leathers complemented each other very well.
The Groundbreaker Boots take many favorable details from the recent Wesco’s build, the Mister Lou Boots. Some of the most noticeable features are the slimmed down shaft, the triple needle stitching throughout, and the V-stitch on the backstay. If you’re into the vintage kind of Engineer Boots detailing, well they surely will serve you the justice. They’re also equipped with solid brass roller buckles and a couple of Wesco’s customized Dr. Sole half-sole and heel combo. And we also leave our own mark on the boots; the sublime yet rugged white heavy-duty stitch on the counter’s center row.
These working boots are proudly designed and crafted without compromise. Using only fine materials and executed with such an experienced and expert craftsmanship which Wesco is renowned for. It’s rare to come across something that has head-turnin’ eye-starin’ physical form and advanced durability as its primary inner value all at the same time. In short, they’re indeed ground-breaking.
