1 of only 80 pairs made. A radical take on a Hiking Boot, gone vegan with a pretty-but-tough Khaki PU upper, silver hook and eye finishes and perfectly contrasting laces.
Our now classic Saturn Returns boot made even more radical! For our newest incarnation of the silhouette we have added a super fresh hook and eye detail through the top 3 eyelets on this classic 8 up boot. Monochromatic black and white hiking laces create a more contrast to the utilitarian mood of this Khaki palette. The result? A pretty-tough boot that has a totally unique radical hiking finish. Executed in a very soft handle Vegan PU that is basically indistinguishable from genuine leather.
Running true to fit and especially great for wider width feet thanks to the open throat possibilities of the detailed lacing. Please order your regular size. Feel free to call us 0437 933 073 if you need to talk through your sizing before you order.
Don't ask me why, but to me there is something very Drew Barrymore circa 1993 about this khaki palette, especially when executed with the hiking lace details. The nineties were a time when military dressing - army pants, army boots and oversized coats - felt pretty new and counter culture and at that time that was personified by combat boot dressing. Pretty satin dress. Just add an army boot for surprise. The khkai palette channels that nostalgia a little, however is probably more modern in it's take in that you could easily wear this palette with the right kind of navy suit to the studio and not feel under dressed. So yes. Deep Moss Green Khaki upper finished with Khaki lining to keep the upper colour solid. Silver eyelet detail and monochromatic two tone hiking lace detail as standard all finished with solid black plant rubber outsole to help give the silhouette conviction and strength.
Our new favourite way of wearing our new favourite hiking boots is with tucked in socks and high waisted anything, especially man style pants as seen on dear Gemma here. This Khaki palette wears beautifully with charcoal and even Navy for a military hit. The key is the tucked in winter sock for textural accent at the ankle. Also works well in contrast with really soft feminine silhouettes like long line satin anything layered up with chunky knits for practicality and to give weight to the form.

PU is a highly durable material that is ideally suited to long wearing shoes. For optimum care, we recommend and sell "Waproo Waterproofer" to protect your toe tappers from unexpected showers. We recommend spraying monthly on the Full Moon and can send you a reminder if you sign up to our newsletter here.
Polish your PU shoes around once a month and clean when necessary with a leather conditioner and soft rag to remove any dirt accumulated on your travels.
For extra special treatment, polishing can help renew shoes that have developed scratches or other signs of regular wear. Wax and cream polishes available from a local shoe repairer will breath new life into your beloved toe tappers. Once your newly polished shoes have dried you can re-apply a waterproof spray for extra protection.
