About Iron Boots

All Iron Boots are fully handmade by our bootmaker Kai and 5 teammates together in a small studio at Guangzhou. They are built in handwelt or hand stitchdown, with channelled insole construction, which are stronger and last longer than normal Goodyear welted shoes/boots made by machines. Each pair is 100% hand welted, hand last, hand bottomed, and also hand-sewn outsole stitch.

About Østmo Boots

Østmo Boots came to be in 2015, when 1986–born Norwegian Lars Jensen woke up one day with a wish to brush the dust off of Norwegian and Scandinavian footwear heritage. Although Lars himself is completely self-taught, the Østmo name is carried over from his paternal great-grandfather, Karl Johan Østmo, which was the shoemaker and cobbler in Lars’ home village Åsa in Ringerike, Norway during the early-to-mid 1900s. In fact, it was due to the discovery of Karl Johan’s old tools, lasts and half-finished projects while digging through a shed that Lars decided to try his own hand at the bootmaking craft.

Through Østmo, Lars has revived several boot, shoe designs that were last seen in production during the 1960s, with unique twists that pair well with contemporary aesthetics. Most notable is the Type I pattern, with its unique feature colloquially known as the “ankle swoopty”, which stands out among the crowd of other derby boot patterns.

About Østmo X Iron Boots

The Iron Boots X Østmo collaboration comes as a result of Lars’ wish to make his creations more widely available than what a single craftsperson can provide, while adhering to an unyielding level of material quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail.

About Leather

Natural washed horsebutt leather from Maryam Tannery is a premium, full-grain vegetable-tanned leather. This premium leather is crafted from the butts of carefully selected horsehides, renowned for their exceptional strength, durability, and unique grain patterns.The washing process gives this leather a more distressed and vintage look, accentuating the natural grain and imperfections.

FYI, this natural washed horsebutt is thicker than the washed horsehide.
