Jill Heritage Gusset Boot

The Story: A classic dress boot fit for any occasion.


This lined Chelsea gusset boot is made using local Victorian bovine full-grain leather. This thick yet supple leather makes for a durable and comfortable boot that will mould and age with the wearer. When using this leather we are able to construct it without the side seam. We refer to this as the wholecut Jill gusset boot as it is made out of one piece of leather.

Also available in Italian yearling leather however it will have a side seam in this case as the leather does not shape in the same manner as the bovine for the blocking process. Colours can be limited. Yearling is used for black or when a dressier finish is desired as it has a smoother grain.

Style: Ladies Chelsea Gusset boot

Upper: Bovine leather upper with goat lining

Sole: 3.5mm Italian oak tanned, hand waxed, Blake stitched or Blake Rapid leather sole. Stacked leather heel, leather/rubber top piece.

Please note that colours pictured will vary from hide to hide. Whisky bovine can come out a little lighter and dyes will take differently to each hide. We try to give as close a representation of each colour as possible.

If choosing the blake rapid sole construction (stitched twice), note that you can see the stitching from above (stitching visible on edge).

The alternative is using blake stitched construction for a finer sole (stitched once and no visible stitch from above).

Please note all our current boots come with branded Wootten pull tabs.

Please note that all our footwear is made-to-order. Lead times can be found in our footer below for leather goods and footwear.
