Please note that fitting stock is available in the shop however all our goods are made-to-order unless stock already exists in our shop in Prahran. This footwear can take 4-6 weeks depending on the business in the workshop.
Please note that colour variation is more apparent in the wax tan and brown colours, where the colour of the hide is dependent on what we receive from the tannery and may be lighter (brown) or darker (wax tan) than what is shown on the website.
Maintenance of the Bob Desert Boot is critical with the use of the Vegetable-tanned leather. Regular conditioning (at least once a month) with a clear leather conditioner is of utmost important to keep the leather happy and supple. It is to never be allowed to dry out otherwise it can be prone to cracking. If Bob became wet in the rain he must dry out naturally without the use of any heaters.
Made on our Gordon Boot last with a slightly ridged toe.
We find that the fit tends to be half to a full size down from what you might normally wear but we would always suggest coming in to try them on before purchasing online to be sure as every individual is different with how they wear their shoes/boots and what socks they wear.
Sizing is in UK/AU.
Dyed leather is available at a $20 charge. This occurs on the tan or brown leather base.
Options include blue, navy, jade green, red, burgundy and english tan.
