More details about Memphis Zip Boot - Black

Italian made, 40mm heel, high quality black zip boot

Our Italian made Memphis boot takes its inspiration from the motorcycle and western boots of 60s USA, stripped down for a minimalist look  The heel is higher than our regular boots and slightly angled. This black leather boot has a side zip and stitched leather sole. Black  looks good with blue or black jeans or dark trousers.

Our Memphis zip boot, in black calf, is very striking.Memphis looks amazing with blue or black jeans. They are hand crafted in Italy, using the finest, full grain calf leather. It's a really supple full grain calf leather,  very soft to the touch, a real sign of its quality.

YKK Zip, stacked leather heel

There is a full length side zip, and a reinforced pull loop. You may notice the boot has a higher 40mm heel, genuine leather stacked. Our Eastwood boots by comparison have a 25mm heel. The heel is slightly angled, together with the height, inspired by, or a nod towards a cuban heel.There is a full leather black sole, blake stitched, with Thomas Bird branding embossed in the waist. The last style, the shape of the boot, is slightly enlongated, with a rounded toe shape. Looking at the side profile it has a beautiful, sweeping silhouette. The overall height profile of 22cm (approx 9") from the floor.

Soft calf leather lining

Unzipping the boot, we can see, and feel, that the interior is fully calf lined. Again this is sign of quality. It helps your foot slip in, and it absorbs moisture to prolong the life of the boot. And there is a full leather insole for breathability. What you can’t see are the stiffeners between the calf upper and lining. There is one in the toe and another at the back.  These are important to keep the boot shape looking good as it ages, and we use longer, high quality stiffeners to achieve this.

Stitched leather sole

The sole is stitched onto the upper with a traditional Italian method called blake stitching. This is an in-channel, lock stitching technique, so even if one stitch was worn the others will still be locked securely in place. And being stitched the sole can be replaced if it eventually wears.

40mm stacked leather heel

The 40mm leather heel has a half rubber top piece to help with wear and grip, which can be easily replaced if worn. The boot fits snug.  It has less 'give' than say a chelsea boot with elastic sides.  We would recommend you go one size larger than your usual size as it is a slender boot and a snug fitting The leather is really supple and beautiful on this boot. That is our Memphis boot, a beautifully Italian made high quality boot, that with care should give you many years of enjoyment.
