We’re not sure what conditions are like in your neck of the woods, but here at Gear Patrol HQ in New York, we’ve officially entered what we call Boot Season. It’s a time of year when both the temperature and our inclination to spend time outdoors in said temperature call for durable shoes that work hard and look good doing it.
And right on time for its arrival, Huckberry has released its own line of boots. Their new house brand, Rhodes, features two boots: a cap toe and a plain toe, both named Dean. They come in four shades of brown and feature a stacked leather heel, speed hooks, and a Texon insole that provides both insulation from the cold and shock absorption — in case you hit the ground a little harder than you intended. The rest of the boot is made from calf leather, and each pair is sewn by hand in northern Portugal by a family run factory that’s been making boots for three generations.
Each pair will cost you $220, and Huckberry is positioning them as the kinds of boots you can wear day in and day out. And at this price, they’re bringing a whole lot of value to a category where you can spend upward of $350 on a single pair.
