GEAR | Woolrich Footwear


You may be familiar with Woolrich because it has been the longest continuously running woolen mill in the United States. From what began in 1830, a woolen mill built in Plum Run, Pennsylvania that created fabrics for loggers, trappers, miners, and rivermen and then sold out of a mule cart, has grown and evolved over eight generations. This season the heritage brand launches its very first footwear collection for men and women with the same ethos and dedication to authenticity as they did 180 years ago. The wool fabrics that line Woolrich shoes start out in the same way as they always do, as simple bales of raw wool. The new women's footwear line includes several micro-collections, but the one that drew me in first was unsurprisingly their Tomboy Collection, including the Dead Eye Boot ($300) which I took for a test spin this weekend. Comfortable, functional, sturdy, and warm—a good solid pair of kickers.

These look awesome, just wish they were made stateside.

These are gorgeous! I love that they have a rugged yet feminine look. That is a hard balance to strike! I hope I can own a pair someday, right now they're unfortunately a little out of my price range.

I constantly wear a Wolverine pair with this exact eyelet/speed hook combination and they're my favorite boots! It's such a great design for being sturdy but maintaining quick on & off! Might have to add these to my wishlist next...

Looks really nice but is that leather corrected grain? If so, you won't be able to get a decent patina on them which would be a shame IMO
