The Urban Commando Boot - In Cedar Brown Calfskin




Behold what is quite simply the ultimate ‘urban commando’ boot, a unique collaboration between The Rake and Northampton-based shoemaking powerhouse Gaziano & Girling.

The story

The boots are designed on Gaziano & Girling’s exquisite super slim ‘deco’ last, in a E-width fitting, creating uppers that feel lean, elegant and perfect for sophisticated urban living, crowned by the house’s magnificent chisel toe. The boot’s waist is extremely sculpted, fiercely contrasting with the fearless rubber commando sole. Normally made for military boots these custom shaped soles are ideally suited to storming the city streets in rain, sleet or snow.

This particular pair is crafted in glistening, high polished Cedar brown calf, and finished with antiqued brass speed hooks. Each will be supplied with a unique ‘Gaziano & Girling x The Rake’ shoe box and wooden shoe trees.
