One boot to rule them all

Step right up, gentlemen. Your search for a sophisticatedly versatile shoe ends here.

Because rugged boots won’t cut it with your favourite suit, it’s time you met the one boot to rule all future sartorial ensembles — the Indra Strap Jodhpur by lauded Haute menswear label E. von Dadelszen. With a firm footing as the go-to shoe when donning everything from deal-signing attire to a smart casual number, the jodhpur boot may have been born out of a need for a functional alternative to one’s knee-high riding footwear, but it reigns supreme today for its immense versatility and sleek silhouette.

Naturally, as with all exquisite artisanal specimens, the Indra Strap Jodhpur is made by the best in the business, in Italy, where it is painstakingly treated to a 186-step process from commencement to completion over the course of at least 32 hours. Made from Italian calf leather in a mysteriously handsome, Smoke Grey hue, every tiny detail has been considered and given the time and attention it deserves; from the handpainted, oak bark tanned leather sole down to the Goodyear welting and the use of the ‘Revolver Barrel’ heel nailing technique for utmost durability.

To obtain a perfect made-to-measure pair in a colourway and texture of your choosing, peruse the wide portfolio of tinctures and materials as well as detailing available in store. Regular maintenance with Saphir Médaille d’Or products is recommended. Each pair comes complete with a lasted pair of wooden shoe trees to keep your personalised pair unphased by the decades to come.

The Indra Strap Jodhpur boot is available in store and online at E. von Dadelszen
