The Grover | Oxblood Leather
Hound & Hammer
The original “desert boot” was created as a comfortable casual shoe able to survive harsh desert conditions. We think our version works just as well walking downtown streets or propped up on the railing at your favorite watering hole. We made ours just a tad taller than the classic, with 5 eyelets in place of 2 or 3 giving a fresh twist to an old standard. This style features a hand-crafted “stitch-out” construction, that we pair with a TPR (Thermo-Plastic- Rubber) unit outsole- acclaimed for its slip-resistance, flexibility and durability. As a nod to the original we have given the outsole a crepe texture. Besides classic suede (which we also hand-burnish along the edges, toe and heel) we also offer two versions in buffalo leather: black and a daring “oxblood”. The Grover is built on the Rambler last, featuring a strong high-walled toe character that is at once bold and comfortable.
