When I first learned about Astorflex desert boots, I thought they had to be too good to be true. First I was amazed they carried women's sizes. Outside of Clark's I haven't had good luck finding a classic well-made desert boot for women. Astorflex is an Italian heritage brand that dates back to the 1800s. In fact, the shoes are entirely Italian-made—and really thoughtfully too—the leathers are vegetable tanned, the dyes are water-based, the glues non-solvent, and the rubber soles are 100% ecological. Now for the kicker: the price, about $145 for the Greenflex style shown here. For a hand-made pair of sustainable Italian leather boots I feel like that's more than fair. You can find them online in black and dark brown right here, but the style comes in five great colorways. I test drove this pair last week and I will be wearing them for years and years.
