Pre-order window is now closed. The Unlord essentially boils down to the ultimate black lace-up boot. I've had versions of this boot in my mind for years before finally nailing it down. I personally wanted this boot to be a little metal, a little Matrix, a little "menswear" (for lack of a better word). By this, I really mean adaptable--a boot for the wearer to interpret and style as he sees fit.
Here's why this is anything but another black boot. Chris at Wesco and I went through rounds of samples to get it right. We wanted a slimmed down Foot Patrol silhouette, so we opted to seriously shave down the welt, giving a much sleeker, modern top-down profile. The black 2021 outsole retains its Wesco-iness by giving the boot weight and just enough height.
We take the quality over quantity perspective on special make ups. While this is only our 2nd Wesco boot in a year, that's because we personally take painstaking efforts to develop all our SMU's in house. Whether it's Wesco, Alden, Viberg, or Lucchese, we ensure we LOVE the boots we design before they ever hit the shop floor, so that you will, too.
