The Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots are made with all the care and attention to detail one might expect from a product exclusive to Huckberry, and that’s great news for stylish shoppers (like yourself!) everywhere. For more than a decade, Oak Street Bootmakers has been making some of the finest boots and shoes right here in America, with heritage passed down through multiple generations (founder and current Design Director George Vlagos apprenticed alongside his father, an Illinois cobbler by way of Greece). It’s that family history and attention to craftsmanship that lends itself so nicely to some of the best boots for men, and the Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots live up to that legacy.

The difference really is in the details with the Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots, from the rugged brass eyelets to the use of durable, handsome-yet-rugged full-grain roughout leather from the Charles F. Stead tannery in England. This leather is going to get better with age, especially as you wear them consistently throughout the fall. The trench boot silhouette, as you can see above, is neither too bulky nor too slim, making these a pair of boots you can wear with jeans (dark blue or black should style up mighty nicely). And yet, the Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots are also wearable with olive chinos or burgundy corduroys, all owing to that rich, versatile shade of roughout Stone Waxy Mohawk roughout leather.

If it’s your new favorite boots you’ve been looking for, you just might have found ’em. They’re also made with Goodyear welt construction, meaning they can be resoled and quite literally revamped after years of wear. And here’s another thing about the Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots: You really will have them for years, which should help justify the higher price tag (they’ll run you $462 at Huckberry). It’s always worth it to have a pair of boots in your closet that you can count on, and the seriously dependable, highly stylish and effortlessly classic Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boots are the ones to buy now.
