American Heritage Inspired Footwear
This year in boots, American Heritage designs that key in on nostalgia and represent pride in a job well done seem to be the one consistent theme across every brand. American work wear designs that combine tough oiled leathers, durable metal lace eyelets and solid craftsmanship are thriving as consumers are valuing quality over quantity more than ever before.
Lumberjacks, miners and railroad workers are just a few of the inspirations companies like Red Wing, Danner, Timberland, Sorel and more are using to manufacture the modern boot. The aesthetic we are seeing offers a rugged appeal that embodies utility and attention to detail. By putting a modern spin on decades of artisan boot making experience manufacturers are making boots that look just as good as they are made.
