These boots were inspired by a pair of lace-to-toe roofing boots the I had in my early twenties. I was a lumberjack and working my way through college. I thought to myself, is there a way to make a lace-to-toe boot look more classy, or even updated from all the same ol' designs out there. I drew up about 30 different versions of the Asher boot, and wasn't happy with any.
Then I found out my best friend was getting married, and I knew I needed to make him boots as a gift. I went back to the drawing board and finally found the right design that fit all my criteria for elegance and simplicity. I finish them 2-days before his wedding and he received 100s of compliments on them. I knew this boot was going to be big.
Its an original design, and simply does not exist anywhere else in the world.
Its now our best seller, and I couldn't be more grateful.
