The Libertine is a men’s black, premium leather harness boot with nickel hardware. It features a back ankle zipper closure and a stacked heel.
Hand-made, Blake stitched leather sole with STH logo engraving. Blake construction allows for a resoleable boot because the outer sole is stitched directly to the upper. This enables a durable and flexible, high-end boot.
