Italian made, 40mm heel, high quality black chelsea boot
Our Manhattan chelsea boot updates our classic chelsea, cut higher up the leg, its heel is higher and slightly angled. Black looks good with blue or black jeans or dark trousers.
Craftsmanship/attention to detail
There is a reinforced pull loop. You may notice the boot has a higher 40mm heel, genuine leather stacked. Our Eastwood chelsea boots by comparison have a lower 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 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
Looking inside the boot, we can see, and feel, that the interior is fully calf lined. Again th 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. Th 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. That is our Manhattan boot, a beautifully Italian made high quality boot, that with care should give you many years of enjoyment.
