By popular demand this has been our most popular style!!!
Here's a bit of a back story to this pattern. As all good stories begin, they start with some humble roots. When we first started out in 2012, we made a small production run of two styles. One was the "Zed" (which we still have), and we also had this side-zipper upper pattern on a different last and we called it the "Zander". When we showed all of our friends, it was a huge hit; and when we showed both shoes, people immediately picked up the Zander. Because we started small and wanted to share the love to our friends and family, we ended up giving away a lot of the Zander!!!
So then after we saved our pennies and did another production run, we renamed the shoe the "Ziggy 1.0". This original Ziggy was with a laid in welt with smooth polished heels and this quickly became the most popular selling boot we had.
As we carefully grew and the brand got some more traction with the community, we brainstormed and thought, "How can we make this boot better? How can we improve on all that we've learned and offer a great boot to guys that wanted it?" The answer is the "Ziggy" (as you see above). Like everything we do, we think about the construction. We then sampled this boot with a Goodyear welt. The reason is because this was the correct thing to do for this kind of boot. This makes the boot easy to resole and adds a longer shelf life for this pattern. We then upgraded to a YKK metal zipper so we can easily get in and out of the boot. Also, for the heel and midsole, we added smoked stacked leather, but left it raw stacked, so it has a casual feeling that fits with the hand burnished suede on the toe and counter. We feel you'll truly enjoy this style and we wanted to share this with the most amount of people, so we did it on Kickstarter!!
