Pedestrienne Boots

New Auction: These amazing mint condition Pedestrienne Boots in a fabulous BR boot box.

“….I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” -Robert Louis Stevenson

Produced for Fall and Christmas 1987. From the catalog: “The English equestrienne boot is both elegant and pragmatic in stirrups, but as any rider can testify, an instrument of torture for getting around on the ground. We’ve preserved it’s classically spare lines in a boot for walkers, made from full-grain calfskin with buttery leather lining, padded insole, and rubber half-soles and heels. A useful detail borrowed from the original: cotton cross-grain pulls inside the tops.”
