We featured the oiled brown version of the Elsinore Boot a few months ago and it drew in a lot of attention, the aesthetic appeal of the boots is powerful, largely because they have a bullet-proof almost mechanical appeal that leaves you wondering if they have gas tanks and exhaust pipes.
The Elsinore Boot series feature an internal steel shank, a thick leather upper, a rubber sole, a zipper originally designed for paratrooper boots and a series of 5 alloy buckles down the outside to make sure they stay on no matter what the hell happens.
They’re available here from Icon 1000 for $230 USD in either black or oiled brown.
