It takes over 300 steps to make this all-leather Brogan - we use a goodyear welt and the leather is finished with olive oil (but you should use shoe polish!) This is perhaps our favorite colored boot in the 2018 collection - it's lighter shade will darken up naturally the more you wear them. The more you wear them, the more comfortable they get. And, like us, they just get better with age.
The Brogan is the fourth installment in our military-inspired collection of footwear. Our first is the Current Issue, second is the Service Boot, and third is the Boondocker. This Goodyear full-welt leather boot is inspired by the 19th century boots of the Marine Corps. Marines that served from 1805-1892 might have worn the 'military bootie' aka, the brogan. Because our founder is a former Marine, we're starting from today and going back remaking USMC footwear to 1775 when our beloved Corps was founded at Tun Tavern.
- Goodyear Full-Welt Construction With Slip Resistant Soles. This goodyear welt is a traditional, old-school manufacturing method which prevents sole separation and allows boots to be resoled.

I’m very impressed with the boot quality. The boots were very well constructed and were comfortable out of the box. The color was slightly lighter than what appeared on the website but they have already started to darken after a few weeks of use.
Great customer service. Good looking boots and very comfortable. I’ve only had them a couple of weeks, looking forward to how they hold up to daily use.
