OUR STORY

Two guys, one with decades of industry knowledge and a desire to turn the category upside-down teamed up with a buddy with the connections to make it all happen. We added a 3rd, a talented-as-hell shoe designer with a cutting-edge sense of style. Our shared vision: to bring style, durability and comfort together in a pair of boots as resourceful as we are. In short, we wanted to make boots the right way.

So we are setting out to build a better boot, and we started by looking out our window for inspiration. Our hometown of Boston is smart, rugged, classic in its style and bold in its innovation. We designed our boots that way. And of course, Boston is known for its crappy weather, so Boston Boots are weather-proof and built to handle whatever is thrown their way.

BOOT COLLECTIONS

We want to do for boots what microbreweries did for beer.  Bring back quality, character, and integrity to the products we use everyday.  And we are doing it the same way too, by making our boots in small runs, dedicating time to all the details and engaging in a zealous pursuit to find the best methods, materials, and technologies for our boots.

WE USE THE BEST LEATHER KNOWN TO MAN

Horween Leather Co. in Chicago is our exclusive supplier of the best leathers on the earth.  All of the leathers are waterproof, making our boots water resistant and durable in every weather condition.

COMFORT TECHNOLOGY FOR TODAY

We don’t believe in sacrificing style for comfort.  Our team utilized their experience working for globally recognized athletic footwear companies to ensure that our boots have the latest and best features for a comfortable boot.  That includes, our custom engineered footbed!

THE CORE OF EVERY GREAT BOOT STARTS HERE

In order to make a great boot, you must start with a great last. We did just that. Through years of knowledge and experience we crafted this last with the perfect fit in mind including a roomy toe box, contoured instep, and a heel that will not slip.

We’re building Boston Boot Co for everyone that might have a little Boston in their soul.  No detail is minor.  Even a little eyelet is a big deal to us.  With a subtle nod to our hometown, this sophisticated detail will be only seen by the men who wear them.

SIZING OF OUR BOOTS

We have spent a long time perfecting our fit but to state the obvious, everyone's foot is unique.  We designed our boots to be true to size. Order your normal boot size.   We recommend medium weight socks for the best fit and comfort.  We will offer the following men's shoe sizes:

**** Due to POPULAR DEMAND we are adding SIZE 14 D ****

HERE'S WHERE WE ARE

Our team has done this before – working for big companies – doing it their way.  We are excited to now be doing this "our way".  We have invested considerable time, money and effort to design and develop our initial prototypes, but we need your help to bring them to life.  We have worked with suppliers and manufacturers all over the globe and have selected the best for Boston Boot.  Designs have been finalized and we are ready to press the button on our first production run.

USE OF FUNDS

Your support will help us fund the molds and materials and meet minimum order sizes for our first production run.  We are starting with boots but this is just the beginning of our revolution in shoes.

Risks and challenges

We have done our best to mitigate the risks and challenges for this project.

We have worked with our manufacturer for many years and specifically selected them based on their reliability and the quality of their work. Our production schedule has been confirmed and we are confident in our suppliers and vendors ability to deliver on both the inputs and delivery dates.

However, there are always risks of delay in any manufacturing process. We will communicate with our backers throughout the campaign to keep everyone informed and up to date on our progress.
