“Buffalo hide chukka-style boot hand-sewn onto a flex leather sole.”
When it comes to a rugged look that is stylish and a little bit luxurious, there are few who get it right the way American fashion designer Billy Reid does. Instilling his “Southern-bred Luxury” with high quality fabrics and well cut style, Reid has proven he’s got the chops to dress the man who likes jeans, boots, and rocker tees while looking as good as possible. The best part is that unlike many fashion designers whose clothes fit a leaner, Italian body type, Reid’s clothes, shoes and accessories are made for the Southern American man so the big and tall can find clothes that fit well and look good.
His shoes are no exception. Take this season’s Billy Reid Indianola boot. Handmade in Italy with buffalo leather, the shoes are effortlessly cool. The two eyelet lacing keeps the shoe simple while details such as a calfskin footbed and flex leather outer sole guarantee comfort and luxury in every step. A one-inch heel keeps the shoe proportionate and extends the life of the shoe because these are boots that you will definitely want to wear in and wear out.
Pair with distressed jeans or a relaxed chino, your favorite tee or a wool sweater and you can’t go wrong.
