Beckett Simonon’s new waterproof boots for men are amazing (and they’re on sale)

Kick clunky, mundane waterproof boots with these stylin' mens boots

In 2011, Beckett Simonon shoes were born in response to a wasteful, top-heavy retail system. Instead of selling shoes that would break down in a year, creating the need for another expensive pair, the leather goods company took control of its production chain. In honor of noble leather and its talented craftspersons, the founders set out to create a high-quality product that could dictate responsible manufacturing, offer unrivaled prices, and an excellent customer experience. More than ten years later, the leather shoe company is still fulfilling its mission of creating sustainable, bespoke fashion. And now it’s waterproof.

The brand unveiled the Silva Boot, its innovative waterproof boots — fashion-forward footwear made to last a lifetime. Manufactured with “ultramodern water-repellent full-grain pull-up leather,” the Silva Boots meld an eco-considerate present and the future of luxury style. The Silva Boot is constructed inside with a waterproof membrane lining, dual-density memory foam insoles, and lightweight EVA soles.

A hybrid creation two years in development, the Silva Boot is meant to morph function and fashion, upgrading the mundane, clunky workwear typical to heavy, waterproof boots with a reimagined design that provides protection and comfort while maintaining an eye-catching look.

Beckett Simonon is able to guarantee the quality and sustainability of Silva Boots (in addition to its entire product line) by managing all aspects of its production instead of bringing aboard third parties. Sourcing its materials from decades-old Argentinian and Italian tanneries with generation refining some of the finest leathers, Beckett Simonon also controls its inventory with online-only sales made to order at an approachable price point.

The boot maker’s artisans practice traditional, time-worn shoe-making techniques like hand sanding and waxing soles to personal polishing boot uppers for a flawless look. The fashion house strives for individuality in every piece, a distinct nature that Beckett Simonon assures its men’s boots will pass the test of time and age into timeless luxury.

Just in time for fall and cold weather, the Silva men’s waterproof boots pair just as well with classy slacks as with worn jeans while protecting feet no matter how bad the weather gets.

Eschewing retail and wholesale altogether, Beckett Simonon only makes boots to order. Silva Boots are now available at its website for $279. Even better, from November 14 to 20, the boots will be on sale for only $170.

How to wear Timberland boots: Styles and lacing tips for men

Is there any pair of boots more iconic or more associated with fall and winter style than Timberland boots? It's a question that's up for debate, sure, but for hard-working casual style across a variety of seasons, Timberland boots, or "Timbs," are always a safe, stylish, and classic-yet-modern bet. And yet, there's also a debate over how to wear Timberland boots. When we think of the brand, we think of the iconic "yellow boots," the lace-up work boots designed to be worn in so many ways beyond just a day's hard work.

Timberland's signature style is a stalwart in popular culture, kind of like an even cooler version of another instantly recognizable pair of fall and winter boots (L.L. Bean's Bean Boots, anyone?). Both belong in a well-rounded rotation, but Timberland has an effortlessly cool design that they've not changed all that much, other than to amp up the comfort, the sustainability, and the occasional collaboration revamp with new colors and branded detailing. For now, we'll dive into how to wear Timbs, from lacing to styling tips and seasonal trends. There are endless options, so pay close attention: You'll pick up more than a few go-to tricks this season.

They aren't good because they are old; they are old because they stay good. One hundred forty years is a long time to have your doors open, and the only way to make that happen is to ensure you only provide your customers with the best of the best. After a century and a half of making some of the best work boots on the market, Wolverine is digging deep into the archives to reimagine one of their most cherished classics. Like all Wolverine boots, the 1000 Mile is nothing but quality and effectiveness.

Of course, plenty of things make this boot the new (and old) staple you must have in your collection. You may ask what makes it so unique that Wolverine felt the need to bring it back. To find out for ourselves, we caught up with Scott Schoessel of the company to get his insight. "The original 1000 Mile Workboot was launched in the 1910s. The number one work boot of the time, the first work boot introduced on a broader scale. It was a fantastic boot known for its versatility and quality. It is called the 1000 mile because the claim is that it would last 1000 miles."
