After many miles of use and a quick boot brush, we bring you the third edition of our annual publication, The Patina Post. When you first step into the world of fully re-buildable handgrade footwear, it can be hard sometimes to imagine exactly what a week, month, or year of wear looks like. Hence, we have documented the evolutions in color, character, and shape to show you how this high grade of footwear breaks-in rather than breaks down.
With before-and-after evolutions, care instructions, and the wearer’s background included in this Guidebook feature, we hope to provide the information you need to embark on your own style journey. You will witness firsthand how all natural materials develop traits unique to their travels and partners. Dive into the details and get prepared for your next pair of boots, as you see the transformation of footwear that manages to impress from the Division Road and onward.
