Description
The 'Timber' boots are ankle height with a textured rust-coloured leather upper and rounded toe. The sole is leather with a low heel, the core of which is wood wrapped in a layer of copper, which has then been chrome plated. The boot is laced at the front with a leather thonging, which can also thread in the hole which runs through the heel.
