Functional and fashionable are two perfect descriptors of Hard Graft’s new and upcoming footwear. As is the case with Hard Graft’s other products, the boots are handmade in Italy and are branded with the company’s signature wool accent and red-and-white ribbon at the Achilles notch of each boot. Lined with leather and fitted with a wood and rubber sole, each pair demonstrates an impressive level of durability as well as stylish comfort. The line features three different styles – a high-lace boot, a low-lace boot, and a mid-height zip boot – in the brand’s “Heritage” and “All Grey” tanned leather. The off-white laces can lend a sophisticated and notably European look when done in a straight-bar style or can hint at adventure and audacity when tied in a double-back style, while the zipper closure exudes convenience and casual suave. Though some sizing options are currently on preorder, all styles invariably offer excellent quality and a high degree of finesse.
