A vintage inspired Guide Boot, crafted in Maine from Horween leather, using beautiful hand-sewn moccasin construction and paired with a flexible Vibram Christy sole. This is true retro style, detailed craftsmanship and the best ingredients at a value only we can offer.
Our Guide Boots are inspired by the moccasin leather shoes worn by early wilderness guides and mountaineers. We've retained the iconic moccasin design in a boot that emphasizes comfort. From the crimping toe detail to the "heel kicker”, we ensure all the hand-made touches are there. Moc construction is known for molding well to the foot and our use of supple leathers and slightly more flexible Vibram Christy outsole means you get great comfort right on day one.
These Guide 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.
Our Guide 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. The shoe's upper is hand-punched and hand-sewn with awl, needle, and thread on our last. A Gustin embossed full-leather insole adds to the comfort and durability.
Gustin Guide 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.
