Grunge emerged in America and during the late 80’s and 90’s, steel cap boots and shoes returned. Favoured by Riot Grrls and then by Cyberpunks and was then picked-up by fashion-forward kids in Tokyo’s Harajuku district.   

These steel cap boots with rubber sole and distinctive 3 row puritan stitch remains the choice for the most uncompromising wearers. A new generation of customers began embracing steel cap boots and shoes for its androgynous, authentic and distinctive silhouette.
