Life Leather - New Footwear Molecules

Far from just a winter thing, good leather boots are a year-round modular essential. A sturdy, natural material, it takes on the personality of the wearer and over time, its patina reflects the way we live our lives (and treat our shoes). They’re a bold and definite finishing touch to the clothes we wear – and a luxurious refresh after a summer of sandals and slides.

Switch now to October 2022, which sees the launch of a brand-new capsule of Studio Nicholson leather boot styles, in sizes and styles to suit everyone. Made in Portugal, they have been designed to work in seasonless harmony with the everyday molecules. Engineered to tick all the boxes of functionality, comfort, and playfulness, this hardcore bunch of timeless leather options bring a fresh perspective on footwear.

Available in Black or Caffe, the heavy-duty Kick in smooth Italian calf leather is available for men and women. Workwear-inspired; this compact ankle boot has a distinctive, no-nonsense softly squared toe. Rounded corners that shout utility with a heavy tread sole that adds to the tough personality of this everyday style. A thoroughly contemporary jodhpur, the classic accents remain – with elastic gore at either side and robust top tabs that make sliding in and out a breeze. Finished with a rocksteady Vibram sole unit certified to manage any urban terrain.

Minna takes a more feminine turn, with mid-calf length dimensions and subtle recessed mid-heel. The crisp squared toe and slender proportions are offset with a heavy but streamlined leather sole, which adds a certain tomboy charm. Flattering but practical, this smooth Black Italian calf leather upper is enhanced for comfort with a leather-covered latex foam insole, bringing an added layer of ease for striding around the city.

The knee-length Magda is a taller outline that takes its attitude from the Kick. A leg-elongating alternative for the colder months, this smooth Italian calf leather promises to add a lower quadrant toughness to coats, dresses, or skirts. Available in Black, there’s a rounded square toe, heavy tread Vibram sole, and the all-important leather-covered latex inner sole to make stomping more comfortable.

Taking style inspiration from a classic motorcycle boot, The Square is where Studio Nicholson meets the freewheeling grunge of Easy Rider. Available in Black and Whiskey for men and women, this is a seriously sleek but reliably sexy option. Chunky without the clunk, the Square is an ever-ready timeless boot that blends the high footwear notes of the past with the refined, clean-cut attitude of today. With an authentic side zip on the inner ankle, smooth Italian calf leather upper, leather-covered latex innersole, and a heel that modernises the traditional Cuban version, this is definitely one for the open road.
