Stephen's Profile

About

Living in an age of mass production accompanied by an obvious and alarming drop in overall product quality among most modern shoe manufacturers, I find true joy in scouring my city for vintage boots that were made to stand the test of time. They really don't make them like they used to and until modern shoe manufacturers wake up from their cost cutting comas, summon the integrity to reject the concept of planned obsolescence and commit their resources to making products that, at very least, match the kind of old world craftsmanship found in an era where you built your reputation on the quality of your products...I will be collecting, cleaning, restoring and preserving as many amazing vintage boots as I can find in an effort to make you as happy with your closet as I am with mine.
