These Rugged Boots Are Made in Colorado

An exclusive collaboration with Oakland retailer Standard and Strange.


Oakland retailer Standard and Strange teamed up with Colorado boot brand Truman Boot Co. to offer two new versions of its Front Range style. This rugged boot features storm welted-construction to protect against adverse weather along with durable outsoles, speed hooks and unstructured toe boxes. The C.F. Stead leathers used are exclusive to the collaboration: rich Auburn Kudu leather ($450) and Black Waxy Commander leather ($430).

Available in sizes 8 to 12, these boots fit true-to-size on a Brannock device (1/2 size larger than a Red Wing Heritage Iron Ranger). And while the price is slightly more than other American-made trench boot styles, this Boulder-based brand offers premium features and top-tier quality — that’s worth shelling out for.
