The boot features a soft suede calf leather upper, neoprene liner and tongue, rubberized leather rand, a nylon webbing quick-lace system with pull tabs, Italian performance outdoor hiking sole, and a green-branded insole.
The John Elliott team "approached footwear as we do any category—by solving our own problems." The entire footwear range was made in Northern Italy and uses long-lasting materials, including in the Vibram runner, while the boots are built atop authentic Italian outdoor soles. It was key to the team for the range to offer customers a full assortment of possible silhouettes as a way of displaying "the full view of what’s essential" to the variety of fans of the brand.
While the Speed Lace-Up launches Wednesday, fans can expect a full range of silhouettes to follow throughout the spring.
