All the boots from Lone Wolf’s collection run only upto size 10.5 US. This is bad for people with longer feet like me, because we don’t get to own a really well constructed vintage-inspired boot with all the details that would get a vintage connoisseur excited. Goodyear welts, Cat’s Paw soles, stacked leather heels and hand lasted uppers… I’d like all these in my boots for sure. And did I mention that the label is made on a vintage shuttle loom?
There is light at the end of the tunnel, however. From next year, these boots will be available for hobbit-footed people like me, and will run up to a size 13 US. Obviously, all this quality and workmanship comes at a price… a hefty one. These will be a good replacement for my Red Wings next year. I can’t wait!
