  • "During the exhibition at the Met Museum in 2017 his boots caught my attention. In the video he was shooting in New Guinea, with his portable set…I remember telling my friends Nacho and Whitney that we were going to make a pair of boots that Irving Penn would wear today."

    A year later the ARMY boots were born and we named them after these New Guinea Warriors special project.

    Fitting & Sizing

    How do I know my size?
    We developed our lasts meticulously and they fit true to size.

    To minimize risks you can print the insole guide in actual size and measure against your foot. Remember to clear the "scale to fit” box on your printer settings.

    For boots: Master James, Atacama, Bastian, and Wooster shoe/boots the last is British inspired so it is wider and has a higher instep. Download this insole size guide

    Will my shoes stretch at all?
    Yes. Keep in mind that leather shoes should be a little tight in the width as they do stretch and start molding to your feet within the first 3-5 wears. We recommend wearing socks while breaking in boots and shoes.
