Badass shoes. The deconstructed pic is awesome. Or would it be unstructed? Prestructed?  Anyway... You know the one.

And here is the description from the horses mouth......

"The W & Anchor Bros. Work Shoes No.1 use natural vegetable tanned leather as upper vamp .
The liner of outsole and insole is by Traditional Goodyear Welt sewing .

The toe and heel are with fiberglass hard-liner .
The insole is made from vegetable tanned harden leather .
All construction of shoes depend on steel metal piece . 

The outsole is high anti-abrasive and skidproof , use Dr.Sole that a brand develop mixed cork material quality specially .

The size of shoes is US 7-10.5, 11, 12 and 13 in E width .
It’s suitable D till double E width through our modification .
Customer could choose size like Red Wing , WHITE’S , WESCO 、、、、 etc .  So true to US

We test constantly everywhere like blacktop , concrete floor , even snowfield (under twenty degree) , and the shoes always have a good condition. "

Very Japanese looking. Silhouette reminds me a little of White Kloud boots. Will make a nice change to be able to get something like this in my own non-Japanese bigfoot sizing.
