DESCRIPTION

The proud winner of the 2017 New Footwear Product award at The Shooting Industry Awards, The Explorer is carefully handcrafted in waxed leather, lined with a water-proof membrane and finished with a comfortable and hard-wearing Vibram sole. This outdoor boot is the stylish alternative to your everyday welly, perfect for tackling any countryside excursion.


The third of its kind, The Explorer combines the principle elements of two earlier versions. Incorporating the heavy duty and durable Vibram sole of the first “Imperial Explorer” along with waterproof Sympatex membrane of the “Imperial Explorer II" making "The Explorer" the most advanced technical boot to date.

Instead we will be remaking this style with further improvements for inclusion in our Autumn 2021 collection. We apologise for this disappointment and thank all our loyal customers for their continued and greatly appreciated support.
