HOUND & HAMMER's Gunnar is an ankle boot with an inside (medial side) zipper. An updated version of the Chelsea boot – as the zipper was not invented until nearly 100 years after elastic! The Gunnar is the big brother to their Ronan boot. Both are built on the Valor last with same leather, lining and outsole.
As on Ronan, they also hand burnish the toe and heel to give a warm vintage vibe. The wood block heel is also hand-burnished. To complete the vintage look these styles sport the same stitched leather “welt” (the piece that sits on top of the outsole and wraps around the entire shoe).
The exterior is a full grain leather, not a split or pig leather, and is naturally permeable and temperature controlling. The lining is a full glove leather lining -- ultra soft!
All Hound & Hammer boots are designed in Los Angeles and made by hand in an artisanal factory in India.
Material: Leather exterior, leather interior with a removable polyurethane insole and resin sole.
Fit: This is a snug fitting shoe intended to be worn with a lighter weight sock. Please order the size you usually wear for athletic shoes, and if a half size or wide foot, order a half-size up.
