COOL THING WE WANT #362: Handmade (In Whistler) Pair Of Leather & Denim Chukkas

Digging the hell out of these chukka boots from BC’s own Love Jules Leather, a sweet garage op doing made-to-order shoes in Whistler…

A meeting in the middle of my Sperry Topsider style loafers & custom hightops. A product of versatility, these kicks look great dressed up or down, with pants or shorts. Hand everything – cut, stitched, etched & finished by the two of us (Jules & Josh) in our garage based Whistler, B.C., Canada studio. Extremely high quality 6/7 oz tan bullhide, gold brass eyelets (and boot hooks), waxed white thread details, lined with a tan bullhide swede.The inside side panel is a classic blue jean denim.  Technical (new) white rubber boat sole, hand stitched, and waxed brown laces. The shoes pictured are a size 9.5 mens, though your pair will be CUSTOM made on order. Available sizes range from 6 mens (7.5 womens) to 13.
