    Oak Street Bootmakers - Designed in Chicago, handmade in Maine. LEGACY The son of a cobbler, Oak Street Bootmakers founder and designer George Vlagos apprenticed at his father’s shop where he learned the craft of shoemaking from an early age. Today, George seeks to preserve the heritage of fine shoemaking through thoughtfully designed and attentively crafted shoes. CRAFTSMANSHIP All Oak Street shoes and boots are handcrafted in the USA by shoemakers with over 20 years of experience. The highest standards of production are employed to yield shoes that are as durable as they are comfortable. Each pair makes use of replaceable outsoles, a feature normally reserved for formal footwear, to ensure a lifetime of wear. QUALITY Oak Street shoes and boots are constructed from renowned Horween Chromexcel leather. Chromexcel undergoes 89 separate processes taking 28 days and utilizing all five floors of the Horween facility in Chicago. Over the past 100 years very little has changed in the formula. Food-grade beef tallow, cosmetic-grade beeswax, marine oil, chrome salts, tree bark extracts, and naturally occurring pigments are combined. The mixture is then applied using heat, steam pressure, the hands of craftsmen and time. This ultimately yields the soft, supple and durable leather that is used for your shoes or boots.

        • Danner for Tanner Goods: Mtn. Light Lownsdale

          The Danner Mountain Light Lownsdale is the first collaboration between two Portland, Oregon companies with a deep commitment to lasting quality: Danner and Tanner Goods. The Lownsdale is constructed of genuine Chromexcel leather, from the world famous Horween tannery in Chicago, and is the first of its kind to be created at the factory in Portland. Chromexcel is famous for its luxurious and unique pull-up character. Each hide takes roughly 28 days to be matured and ready for use, and develops an amazing patina with age and use. The Lownsdale takes its name from Daniel H. Lownsdale, one of the founders of Portland, who established the city’s first tannery around 1845. Interestingly, its location is now the home of the Portland Timbers soccer (football if you’re true to the game) club. Anyone who knows us knows that when we root, we root for the Timbers.

                      For the first official product release of BROKEN HOMME, it was extremely important for us to do something special. We want BROKEN HOMME to be forever synonymous with quality, functionality, and style. Each collection will partner a contemporary and working class aesthetic to a range of classically inspired silhouettes while forever remaining to be 100% American Made. The collaboration with Leatherman, a company with parallel ethics and influences makes perfect sense. Founded in 1983, Leatherman tools are built by and for campers, hunters, fisherman, bikers and all-around outdoorsman. And their utilitarian style tools are a classic representation of an everyday necessity. For this project we chose to design two silhouettes, a classic padded collar oxford, and a 5" hiker inspired boot. We styled both silhouettes with an extremely limited military green Horween chromexcel leather. Also both styles are built using goodyear welt construction, and are lined with Cambrelle lining for moisture and temperature control. To finish off both styles we built them on a black VIbram Gumlite outsole for extreme comfort, and functionality. Each hiker comes with a co-branded Leatherman & BROKEN HOMME multi-tool complete with matching Horween leather sheath and carabiner. This is a limited release of only 60 pairs of each style, which are manufactured in downtown Los Angeles, California. These styles can be found at American Rag, Pipers Shoe Parlor, Douglas Fir Feet Convert, and Port Long Beach
