Our Sloane Boots are 100% leather and made in Portugal. A combination of high quality leather & nu-buck creates a perfectly snug boot. The thermo rubber high grip sole and membrane maintains warm feet in cold weather and cool feet in hot weather. It also has a waterproof membrane that helps prevent perspiration and the removable pre moulded footbed provides instep support. The drawstring is mainly for visual effect and the tall below the knee design is modern and practical. You’ll be jumping in puddles all day long in these Mocha Sloanes, and we think they pair wonderfully with our Odette Wax Check.
