N° 650 details

No. 650 is a classic men’s boot—a Goodyear-welted Balmoral in dark blue and bordeaux. The roots of this unique lace-up boot lie with the British royal family; to be precise, Prince Albert and his royal shoemaker Joseph Sparkes Hall.

A legendary royal shoe – the charming Balmoral

In the mid-19th-century, the Queen’s husband commissioned the creator of the Chelsea boot to make a stylish yet comfortable hiking boot, one which the Prince could wear on trips to his Scottish summer residence, Balmoral Castle, as well as to tea. Over time, the Balmoral gained popularity in the higher echelons of society, and continues to curry favour in such circles today.

This Goodyear-welted take on a famous men’s boot is distinguished by a striking combination of contrasting colours and leathers. While the lower portion of the shaft is made entirely of fully-dyed bordeaux calfskin, the upper portion is made from dark blue velours, creating the illusion of spats. Traditionally, the portion encircling the bottom of the shaft was made from a single piece of leather. No. 650, though, features a separate counter, which is connected to the vamp by a curved shaft seam. This seam lends the dark blue and bordeaux Balmoral a slightly more lively look. Like traditional Balmorals, this model features closed lacing, threaded through eight eyelet pairs. A pull tab stitched on at the heel ties everything together, and makes this men’s boot easy to put on and take off.

This bicoloured Balmoral in dark blue and bordeaux is absolutely stunning—too much so for sophisticated occasions. However, in informal settings, this highly versatile lace-up boot is a great way to show off your style.

Boots

Boots

Boots sind Herrenstiefel, deren Schaft etwa fünf bis zehn Zentimeter über den Knöchel hinausreicht. Meist handelt es sich bei ihnen um robustere Pendants der klassischen Halbschuhe. Bieten Füßen bei ungemütlichen Witterungsbedingungen einen besseren Schutz.

Classic Last

Classic Last

The standard British last form. Subtly and elegantly narrows at the front of the shoe, without sharply rising from the ground. The average width at the ball of the foot provides a great fit for average feet.

Box Calf

Box Calf

This shoe’s upper has been crafted from medium-soft, fully-dyed calfskin. The technical term for this type of premium leather is "box calf". Box calf boasts an even grain and a firm grip.

Velours

Velours

Processed velours is an extremely fine, fully-dyed type of rough leather that is taken from the flesh side of the hide. Velours is extremely soft and resistant to soiling. It is easy to care for; regular brushing with a suede brush suffices to keep your velours shoes in good shape.

General information about our boots

Goodyear-Welted

Goodyear-Welted

The gold standard when it comes to shoe manufacturing. Goodyear welting is a painstaking process that involves stitching the shaft and outsole to a thin strip of leather. Shoes made this way are extremely stable, durable, breathable, and easy to repair.

Handcrafted

Handcrafted

Mass-produced shoes are glued together on assembly lines. All of our premium, full-leather shoes, on the other hand, are handcrafted to the finest standards of quality. You can see and feel the difference.

Full-Leather Shoes

Full-Leather Shoes

The high quality of these shoes is reflected in their high leather content. Their uppers, lining, insoles, and outsoles are made from the finest leather. They even have leather heels, made by painstakingly stacking thin layers of leather on top of one another.

Construction

Construction

These shoes consist of roughly 65 separate parts. They took about 210 steps to assemble. We rely upon premium materials and traditional production methods to ensure that our footwear is of the absolute highest quality.

Gentleman's Corner

Gentleman's Corner

These shoes come equipped with a so-called "gentleman's corner". This is a small notch cut from the inside corner of the heel. This has a practical purpose—it prevents your trouser leg from catching on your shoe.

Breathable

Breathable

This shoe boasts a high proportion of leather, and has been assembled without the use of adhesive bonding—both of these factors ensure proper air circulation and prevent moisture from penetrating the surface. Dry, well-ventilated feet are healthy feet.
