1920s Style Black "Town" Boots

Low Stock

High Grade Kid
Goodyear Welted
Leather Sole
Fully Lined
Made in Northampton, England

Our beautiful handmade boot is the perfect replica of the classic early 20th Century "Town Boot", it's fitted with a leather sole sewn to a proper Goodyear welt, slim and neat, just like the originals, half canvas and half leather line and made from the highest grade Glace Kid, one of the best wearing and most comfortable leather ever used in footwear production.

Back in the 1980s Aero made a limited edition replica of the classic early 20th Century man's Glace Kid Town Boot, the type worn across the Globe before WW2 and featured in all the major catalogues of the day. Charlie Chaplin wore these and today they show up in TV series such as Beaky Blinders and Boardwalk Empire. Production of the Aero version came to a slightly abrupt halt when our cobbler retired and it's taken us a while to find a British Shoemaker capable of recreating this legendary boot to our satisfaction.

All good things are worth waiting for and we are now delighted to introduce our new version, hand crafted in Northampton in the traditional manner, maybe not with the cobbler working with a mouth full of tacks and a last between his knees as would have been the case before "Elfin Safety" but made as close as possible to the original 20th Century version.
