King Mob Monkey Boots (FACTORY SECONDS)

  • Descended from the boots of turn-of-the-century Eastern European infantry, and  adopted by early English punk rockers, the Monkey Boot is a long-lost icon of cool. We've wanted to produce such a boot for a long time, but materials of sufficient quality have been difficult to obtain in any quantity.

    Until now: we've acquired extremely limited stocks of Horsebutts from the legendary Shinki Tannery in Himeji, Japan. To those in the know, that statement alone will be tremendously exciting. This is some of the toughest, thickest, most gorgeous leather we've ever seen at Himel Bros., and what better to make from it than boots built to kick ass?

    Update: This is the final release of King Mob Monkey Boots. All remaining pairs are final sale. 
  • The King Mob Monkey Boots fit about a quarter of a size smaller than your Brannock size. It's very close to American sizing, so order the size you wear in Chuck Taylors. The widths are narrower than standard—our E width will make a suitable replacement for D widths in other boots.
