Our Gypsy boots are handmade by an Indigenous Guatemalan family of shoe-makers with three generations of experience. The soles are a combination of compressed leather and reclaimed car-tyres, which can be resoled and can last up to 30 years if cared for well.

Antique hand-embroidered blouses with Mayan symbology are recycled to create a one-of-a-kind boot with a unique combination of external embroidered fabric and a thick, hand-woven cotton tongue. 

Like all quality leather boots, these need to be worn in and stretched to your exact foot shape. They are suitable for all feet type, but wider feet but may take more time to wear-in. 

A pair of soft inner soles are provided to place back in once the boots are stretched and comfortable. With the option of wearing in two unique styles, once worn in, these boots are sure to become your favourite choice of shoe wear all year round.

These "two-in-one" boots can be worn at full height or rolled down using the press studs and worn as ankle boots.

Beautiful sturdy boots

I have a pair of these boots and recently wore them as my main shoes on a tour of the NT, through all kinds of terrain, hit and cold weather. Super comfortable and sturdy boots and got lots of compliments on them as well.
