Meet the Gustin Classic Boot. Inspired by traditional work boots, they’re built from the finest materials in the world and hand-made in America. Gustin boots are built to last, with styling that’s right for any occasion.
These Gustin Classic boots are made from Chromexcel leather from the Horween Leather Company in Chicago. When you see and touch this leather, you instantly know why Horween has become the gold standard. The surface is smooth and slightly oily to the touch. The unique double-tanning process of vegetable and chrome treatments yields a supple leather that is drop dead gorgeous. Horween’s black version is a pure deep black color for a timeless and rugged look. Wear-in makes it even sweeter.
Timelessness defines the aesthetic of our boot. The Classic boot looks right today and will look right in 20 years. We designed our own last to get the specific fit and look we wanted. Overall, the fit is very neutral and accessible. The toe box profile is just a touch lower than a a work boot, giving ours a more refined character. Beauty is in the elegant tonal stitching and the narrow leather backstay. Our boot is devoid of extraneous adornment just like the classics.
Our boots are constructed by hand in Maine by group of craftsmen with over forty years in footwear. They have perfected their craft to the point where the industry's biggest and best names use them for production. It starts with leather cutting without any stacking to ensure only the best sections of hide are used. We use a 360 degree Blake Welt construction, Vibram 232 rubber sole and Gustin stamped leather insole. Brass eyelets and leather laces complete the package.
Boots made in America to our quality level carry incredibly high price points. The Gustin model allows us to offer you a radically better value.
Gustin boots run true to size. If you typically wear a US 9 or EU 42 or measure 9 on a Brannock device, we recommend ordering a US 9. All boots are standard D width.
