Limited Edition: White’s Boots X Iron and Resin MP Service Boot
August 27, 2018
A limited-edition boot that cannot be found anywhere else.
Ventura, CA, August 27th, 2018 – Iron & Resin has been making their very own line of goods right out of Ventura, CA since 2011. As a brand that lives by world class surf breaks and seaside racetracks, where ghosts of a once towering oil industry still linger in the shadows, building their own craft, by hand, has been the only avenue for them since their beginnings.
On August 25th, they released a limited-edition collaboration boot with the renown White’s Boots. This collaboration between the two brands introduces a boot that cannot be found anywhere else. Introducing, the White’s Boots X Iron & Resin MP Service Boot.
“This is a boot that one-ups all others in your closet. They fit like they were born with you. They traverse, trek, hike, ride, work, and drink nice whiskey with you around the world. They sit at the door waiting patiently for the next adventure, the next day, the next dinner date.”
Iron & Resin’s decision to collaborate with White Boot’s was a given from the start. When it comes to the brand’s core values, like American made high-quality goods with a great story, they knew all the right boxes were checked. “White’s Boots has been making the finest boots around since they were first established in Virginia in 1853. Which means for 165 years they’ve been building their brand and perfecting their methods, creating a product we can truly stand by.” In 1915, they relocated to Spokane, Washington and continued to grow their roots in the logging industry of the Pacific Northwest.
About the White’s Boots X Iron & Resin MP Service Boot
The Military Police Boot is modeled after WWII American infantry boots. This boot is not only stylish, but its durability is defined by the field boot. It’s the go-to in the field service boot for NFPA wildland fire fighters. This combination creates a badass quality of the old world and the high-end street boot swagger of the new world, which, as far as we know, is unavailable anywhere else on the market.
This boot is a premiere collaboration, made with the highest quality leather and designed to up the ante on all your other boots. Consider this pair like a bottle of fine barrel aged bourbon that you sip slowly and never regret taking seconds. Entirely handmade with an all leather construction. They’re hand welted, hand lasted, and hand bottomed. So, the MP Service Boot not only look really good, but they feel even better so you can go further.
The 7-8 ounce Horween Leather upper in Cinnamon Waxed Flesh and its long wearing Vibram TPU rubber ½ lug outsole is bound to outlast even the top end of your bike. Even if you do go through them years down the line, these MP Boots are completely rebuildable and re-soleable. Our bets here at Iron and Resin Studio is that you’ll have them for life. The toe is a single celastic box, with a stylish toe cap, nine solid brass eyelets finished with three solid brass speeds hooks on the top, completes a 6” tall boot rugged enough to have Steve McQueen drooling over. To top if all off, this MP Service Boot is hand lasted with a Barrie dress shoe last, so you’ll most likely want to sleep in them.
“These are the sort of boots you create stories with, stories you tell your grandkids of back when they were new, back when you were younger, and back when things were a little bit simpler.”
