Creativity
We selected the formal Balmoral leather boots, a classic in the West, which includes fabrics from the revered old brand of Harris Tweed. Using techniques that integrate different fabrics, Harris Tweed woven since twentieth century on the Isle of Harris, is combined with cow embryo skin which is neither coated nor modified otherwise, to create the Harris Tweed, which is durable, waterproof, and easy to clean. This boot ensures Hong Kong men keep their feet warm and comfortable during the rainy and humid winter in the territory, and combine fashion with functionality, and show great taste on any occasion.

Therefore, take the most difficult skill called Blake or Mckay, to reduce friction with the ground , to getting wet ,and enhance artistic level furthermore.
Production Technology
Employing a London-style narrow shoe body and twin color design, and taking the classic C-Lsat elegant round-nosed leather shoe as its point of departure, this shoe retains a comfortable wearing experience. The round head has been slightly raised to complete the gentlemanly elegance of the shoe. The difference with traditional Balmoral boots is that they use different materials and more rounded shapes for an enhanced sense of elegance. They kept the Diamond Toe and the Straight Tip to preserve the English gentleman’s style.
