For years, we dreamt of making the perfect boot. A boot that’s timeless, versatile, and made with sustainability and longevity in mind. Last year, The Dawn Boot was released to an overwhelmingly positive response. This autumn, our favorite wear-everywhere boot is back, and we even added a new colorway!
As we embarked on the production process, we were faced with two options for materials: newly manufactured leather, or a petroleum-based polyurethane. Both cause tremendous harm to the environment. Neither option felt right.
It took months, but we discovered a distributor with reserves of deadstock leather. These remnants were left behind because of minor imperfections, or because there wasn't enough to satisfy the minimum quantities at larger fashion houses.
Like all deadstock material, this leather would have ended up in a landfill, but we repurposed it to make The Dawn Boot.
