Developed collaboratively as a Brawler boot with a stripped down colour palette and a street-wear inspired slouch, the Vanta Series Brawler (VSB) represents the best of what can happen when two disparate creatives put their minds together into one like project.

The idea grew out of the coincidental acquisition of some beautiful matte black leather and our learning of Vantablack, a high tech coating that can absorb almost all visible light (you know how those wikipedia holes get you).  While we ultimately backed off from a completely black design, the first prototypes turned out well enough that we decided to go all out and build a sample run.  The VSB features a matte, oil-tanned leather from Argentina, a plush, garment leather lining, flat waxed cotton laces, resolable brass-nailed construction, Dainite rubber soles, and stacked leather heels.

The fit of the VSB is similar to the classic Brawler, and the two are identical in width (D), though the VSB can initially feel more narrow.  This is due to an additional layer of leather used in between the upper and lining leather to stiffen the sides of the boot.  The result is, well, a very stiff boot with a considerable break-in period.  Once broken in, the fit is identical.

PLEASE NOTE, while the VSB is 100% guaranteed against any manufacturing defects, cosmetically it is built to a sample grade and as such may have some imperfect stitching, grinding wheel abrasion, and wax residue.  This is reflected in the price.  Please contact us if you have any questions.
