Having as a starting point the original boots that were made 60 years ago, each pair of Green Boots undergoes the same fabrication process, with all the know-how, tradition, quality, materials, hands and dedication. We reinvented the Portuguese work boots, modernized and full of character, proud of its past and present, and aflame about the future.
Our boots are made with the traditional manufacturing process, at its original location, with the machinery from that time, counting the knowledgeable hands of expert artisans. The manufacture is completely manual, completed with tradition and dedication. Our boots take about four hours to produce, just like in the 50's, no rush and with the same spirit and dedication that made this product, people and land's character.
Goodyear Welt is a method used in all of our footwear. Since the early years of this industry, the demand for a highly resistant and long-lasting boot required inventing manufacturing processes that responded to these market needs. This particular one is named after its inventor, Charles Goodyear, Jr., who in 1869, at the height of the industrial revolution, invented a process that replaced the traditional, fully hand sewn method.
The process creates an item with greater durability and that is easy to repair (and may potentially be repaired indefinitely). The increased comfort and flexibility, improved breathability and temperature range give this method a great edge, with the potential fallout of being slower and costlier.
The Green Boots’ lines allow for an exceptional amount of customization, from the outer hide (finish) in three varieties (calfskin, suede and nubuck), to the soles (hide, recycled and military tire), and its inner coating in various materials and colours. In order to ease the navigation through the range of combinations, we've named all of the calfskin boots as in the morning, the suede as by evening, and the nubuck as at night.
