The Byron Boot is your go-anywhere, do-anything footwear. Inspired by motorcycle culture but with a drop of sophistication, the Byron embodies the best of Rancourt & Co. shoemaking knowledge and tradition. The uppers are crafted from Horween's veg tan Essex leather in black. This rugged black leather is low maintenance, durable, and incredibly handsome.We lasted the uppers on our proprietary 115 last, the same last we use for our dress shoes. We offer a wide range of sizes and widths on the 115 last because of it's superior fit and elegant shape. It perfectly straddles the line between dress and casual. Each pair is fully lined with Horween's Casco horsehide lining in black. We love Casco because it is a soft and supple leather lining that lends more structure and durability to the uppers without sacrificing comfort. The bottoms are a winning combination of leather midsole with a storm welt and the Vibram #430 mini lug. They complete this rugged look without overdosing on "commando" style. The Byron Boot is handcrafted in Lewiston, Maine USA using our Blake Welt Stitch Construction.
