In the world of Men’s fashion, what one person can find appealing to the next is subjective and while each product may have its highlights and its low lights, one thing we can all agree on is that occasionally a product so perfect can cross our path that we can’t stop ourselves from singing its praise. The must own footwear item for this fall is the Gallagher boot by Beckett Simonon.
The made to order philosophy of Beckett Simonon is a defining feature of this footwear company, with their conscientious mission to not carry expensive inventory or produce products that may end up going unsold. As a result, not only are you getting a premium real leather construction but more importantly at a fair price. Using family-owned, ethically responsible factories around the world, their purposeful manufacturing, and Eco-friendly material sourcing are essential in creating outstanding products.
The Gallagher is a testament to their philosophy with a boot that is not only refined but versatile, no matter what the occasion. Worn equally well with jeans or dress pants, it is handcrafted from premium full grain Argentinian calfskin leather, with a generous mid cut that is a real head turner. Their re-soleable Blake stitched leather soles with stacked leather heels mean they’ll be comfortable right out of the box and the leather lining also gives them exceptional breathability for those long days. However, a shoe is nothing without its “sole” both figuratively and literally. The Gallagher also features a comfortable SBR rubber mid-sole with rubber heel caps for better traction.
It also worth mentioning the attention to detail that brings this boot into the premium category. Often overlooked in the shoe industry are features such as the brilliant hidden brass islets and speed hooks to allow for the perfect secure lace up every time. The clever waxed cotton laces also give the boot some longevity and prevent breakage and lastly the always welcome nylon pull tabs which allow for easier slip on and take off when it comes to the boot itself.
Finally, is the wear-ability factor, are they comfortable? In a word – Yes! We were very surprised at just how perfectly they felt on our feet out of the box, with no wear in time required. They fit like a glove, were true to size and have a sturdy yet adequately bouncy rubber sole to prevent fatigue. It also worth mentioning that we received quite the compliment on the Gallagher boot during our testing period, many remarking at the aesthetic and suitability of the boot to be worn with many different outfits.
Beckett Simonon have designed what may be our favorite footwear item of the year, the Gallagher boot is a premium, stylish, and adaptable boot that we have no trouble recommending to readers as a worthwhile Christmas gift this coming season.
