On the Radar
Reveals, New Launches and Gear
Nisolo’s new Lockwood boot is inspired by the classic American trench boot, but with some stylistic upgrades. Its leather upper and calfskin interior lining make it comfortable for all-day wear, while still being more than presentable for work. If ever they do need to be repaired, the Lockwoods are fully re-soleable, so it’s easy to breath new life into them after years of wear. Each pair is handmade and ethically produced in Peru.
