You don’t have to be Lawrence of Arabia to understand the appeal of the classic desert boot. They’re stylishly simple, extremely functional, and able to withstand a sandstorm of abuse in any number of extreme environments. All of which makes Herbert Schier‘s models an oasis amidst a wasteland of lesser-quality imitators. Fashioned from durable wild kudu leather, these desert boots—or “vellies,” as Schier calls them, referencing their origin as the preferred shoes of the Khoikhoi tribe since way back in the 1600s—are handmade in Swakopmund, Namibia, in quantities of only 20 pairs per day. Dress them up with dark denim and a button-down or keep it casual in slim-cut khakis and a t-shirt. Either way, they’re sure to quench your thirst for the perfect pair of fall footwear.
