Best handmade boot styles for fall – Boot up!
Leather all the way – be it sun or rain
Leather is a permanently trendy shoe material, and this season is no exception when it comes to wearing high-quality leather boots. Handmade quality leather boots are not just the best tool to start the fall season with a style, but they will support you on your light walks on mild sunny days and protect your feet during drizzly autumn days. Read more and find out what are some of the best handmade boot styles for this upcoming fall period.
While we are speaking about best handmade boot styles we cannot skip one of the classic boot styles for fall – the Chelsea boot. But this boot style is not exclusively for the fall; the best thing about owning a pair of the Chelsea boots is that you can wear them all year round. Designed to be easily slipped on and off, these ankle-high boots have elastic side panels, making them one of the easiest footwears of all time. Even though the Chelsea boot is a model with a closed fitting, their last is wide, which makes them perfect for men with a high instep and wide foot. They are versatile boots, easy to style for both casual and dressy occasions. You can wear them with jeans, with a suit, and with chinos. While black Chelsea is a great classic option, our Chelsea boots in unique jeans patina are perfect for making a fashion statement. During cold months of the year, they will be a perfect asset to a winter coat. They are so practical that you will want to wear Chelsea leather boots right away, be it sun or rain.
Another pair of boots from our fall edition made of high-quality leather originating from the finest tanneries in France is a Stockholm single monk strap boot in cognac antique patina. This elegant boot is a version of the single monk strap shoe, characterized by its simple lines and one stylish buckle. Like all our handmade shoes, the upper material is manually painted in our workshop. You can easily recognize the high-quality of the leather on this boot by its soft creases, while a hand-polished patina is distinguished by its variability – defined by the dark and light patches across the surface. The cognac antique patina gives this boot a luxurious look and makes it perfect to wear with both chinos and jeans.
Get cozy in soft suede
If you are looking for boots to wear during dry autumn days or perhaps for comfortable indoor wear, then the best shoe material to pick is suede. Our suede boots are made of the finest Italian suede, regarded as the best quality in the suede industry for shoemaking.
Naturally, suede boots have a far more casual look than classic leather boots, and the suede version of one of the easiest footwear styles – the Chelsea boots are the perfect choice for any kind of relaxed wear. Opt for a suede Chelsea pair of boots for a casual Friday at the office, night out, or for an easy weekend activity around the city. An inevitable part of our boots collection is the dark brown shade of suede Chelsea boots. Dark brown suede boots are both timeless and versatile. Ideally, you will wear them with lighter and mid-wash denim and if you combine them with a sweater or a blazer you will achieve that cozy, autumn, straight out of a magazine look. Additionally, Chelsea boots are not going out of style anytime soon so you can be sure that you will wear them for years to come.
When it comes to suede, you will not be making any mistakes if you invest in a pair of ankle boots, namely chukka boots. They might seem like a clear choice for spring and summer, but they are a good option for the cold months of the year, too. They are smart enough to be combined with blazer and wool trousers, but you will not be mistaken to combine them with chinos as well. Reinhard Frans fall boot edition currently offers black and chocolate brown suede upper combined with an attractive brogue pattern on the toecap, and a limited bright Prague Caponi suede upper. They differ from our other boots by having an open lacing system that has three eyelets.
However, when you choose one of the suede boots you should keep in mind that suede is a delicate material that is hard to keep tidy, especially if you find yourself in a middle of an unexpected but common fall cloudburst. A pair of high-quality handmade suede boots requires extra attention and you can read all about taking care of the handmade shoes in our previous post here.
Blend in with the fallen leaves
Finally, who said that fall must be the gloomy season? Cheer up instantly during those dark, foggy days by slipping on some of our colourful handmade boots.
You can experiment with classic boot styles in exotic colours such as our timeless single monk strap boot in a dark green colour. This boot is made of finest calf leather originating in France and carefully hand patinated to achieve its specific lush green natural look.
Or if you feel extra bold you can take it one step further and be noticed anywhere you go by experimenting with new textures. Our distinctive Croco cognac boot is a game-changer in men’s shoe fashion. Originally it is a classic chukka ankle high boot with an open lacing system, but the upper leather used to make this boot is an embossed calfskin with a crocodile texture. What makes this shoe even more distinctive and one of the masterpieces in the fall edition is a hand-painted upper in earthly tones, seeming so natural that they would blend perfectly with the fallen leaves on the ground.
