While Oxford and Derby look back on a long tradition of craftsmanship, the roots of the George Boot lie with the British royal family. The George Boot belongs to the modern interpretation of classic men's boots. George Boot in Black - English Men's Ankle Boot with StyleThis men's boot was designed in 1952 by the British King George VI. as a modern uniform shoe. The monarch was searching for a light boot for his soldiers to replace the commonly used wellington boot. Together with his Major General, George Le Fèvre-Payne, he commissioned the men's ankle boots, which are still known today under the name of George Boot. Even today, the famous boots are a part of to the traditional uniform of British soldiers during official events. However, the George Boot has also fascinated the civil environment for a long time. Whether for work or leisure, the George Boot promises the perfect appearance.
George Boot - subtle distinctions
Characteristic of the George Boot is the relatively high and open 3-hole lacing and the undecorated vamp. Attached to the recessed front edge of the rear lateral shank portions (quarters), the portion of the shoe protruding under the trouser leg provides a smooth view of a classic ankle boot, not interrupted by any shank seam or laces.
