Reliable boots are musts in all modern wardrobes. Freebird by Steven, brings us the Blaze for this very reason. This artisan boot maker crafts their boots in the heart of Mexico where they have been handcrafting boots for generations. Handmade, one pair at a time by master shoe makers, these boots stand out from the rest. Each pair is hand-crafted by a small team of skilled cobblers in Mexico who have preserved the true artisanship and heritage of shoe-making Since the leather is distressed by hand your pair will vary slightly in color from this image (it is a good thing).

A Goodyear welted sole is a durable sole made of multiple layers of leather. These layers are fastened together by small cylindrical pieces of wood, individually hammered. This is a very time consuming and difficult process that only a master shoe maker can do well. This means that unlike many shoes and boots in the market, these boots are much more durable and can be resoled in their later years to last a lifetime .
