The Flat Head

Flat Head Goodyear Welted Engineer Boots - Natural Pull-Up Chromexcel


Select a Shoe Size

Here we have the ultimate engineer boot, made in small batches by a small shop which generally only produces boots for Flat Head's line of footwear. Made of a natural pull-up Chromexcel leather, the amount of natural oil in this leather is unreal due to the aniline "dying" process the leather goes through. This run was custom made for Flat Head so that the boot will show a little extra wear from even occasional wear. These will look wild once broken in.

These come complete with custom made brass and iron buckles, Vibram's #700 and #705 heel and sole, a hand stitched shaft seam, and a Japanese made steel shank for sole stability.

SIZING: These are made in US shoe sizing. We find these to run 1 size bigger compared to brannock device sizing, which means they run about half a size bigger compared to sizing from Alden, John Lofgren, & Red Wing.  We recommend sizing down half to a full size from your usual size depending on how much room you like in your boots.  If this is your first pair of high-end boots and you're generally wearing sneakers, we suggest going down a full size from your smallest sneaker size. For example, if you wear a 10 in Nike/Converse/Adidas then you would try a size 9 in these boots.
