Introducing the Osborne – a Chukka boot that encapsulates the harmony of traditional shoemaking and the advancements of contemporary sole technology, embodied by the innovative XL EXTRALIGHT® soles. It is a choice selection for those who seek to combine the timeless appeal of a classic with the cutting-edge benefits of modern ingenuity.
Material & Design: The Osborne is sculpted from the rich textures of Kaleido and Camurça suede, offering a colour palette that reflects the hues of nature, from the verdant Antilope Green and the warm Desert Camel to the deep Brunette Brown. Each boot is crafted with a steadfast leather storm welt and fine grade welt stitch, signifying a commitment to durability and fine detail.
Interior Comfort: Entering the Osborne is to experience a sanctuary of natural full calf leather lining, augmented by a 3/4 branded John White calf heel sock, providing a supportive and sumptuous embrace for the foot.
Sole & Signature Touches: The boot is grounded by the Italian "XL" Extralight® sole, a feat of engineering that offers a lightweight foundation without compromising on strength. It is a sole that defies convention, being three times lighter than traditional materials yet providing superior shock absorption and flexibility that conforms to your gait. This sole ensures resilience and comfort, whether navigating the urban sprawl or embarking on off-trail explorations.
Finishing Touches: Detailed consideration is given to every aspect of the Osborne, from the robust pull tab facilitating an effortless slip-on experience to the full leather footbed that shapes to your foot, providing a custom-fit feel.
