A Refined Take on the Classic Alpine Boot by Oak Street Bootmakers

Oak Street Alpine When The North Wind Blows

Championed by the likes of the Portland-based Danner Boots, the Alpine boot has found a place in the heart of many a denimhead, lumbersexual or just someone who is looking for a fine, handsome pair of boots to ward off the chill.

A New Take on the Classic

Now the Chicago-based, Oak Street Bootmakers have weighed in with their take on the Alpine Boot, the aptly names, Summit Boot.

We are really loving the refined aesthetic that Oak Street have delivered with their version of this classic style of boot.


Refined but not Redefined

But don’t think that these aesthetic refinements have done anything to hinder the practicality of the Alpine boot. Built on the lakeshore last with waterproof Horween Chromexcel Leather, Gusseted Tongue, Commando outsoles and heel on a Goodyear Welt Construction on the outside, and full calfskin lining and padded uppers inside, you are set to keep warm dry and styled all through the winter months.

The Details:

  • Horween Chromexcel leathers in Black or Brown
  • True Goodyear Welt Construction
  • Storm Welt
  • Commando® soles
  • Stacked leather heel with Commando® toplift
  • Hand-Riveted D-Ring Eyelets
  • Gusseted Tongue
  • Full calfskin lining
  • Padded upper
  • Fully recraftable
  • Handcrafted in the USA.
