Indonesia is making a lot of noise in the shoemaking scene as of late. There are so many brands, in fact, that it is hard to keep up with all of them. One that I recently discovered, thanks to Instagram, is Txture. They appear to specialize in an Americana style of shoemaking, and look, but with a touch of added flair through their use of bi-coloring, honey-colored lightweight platform soles, white stitching, and fringes.
I wont lie and say that I am a fan of Americana because truth be told, I am not. I only liked plaid shirts when I was about 10, listening to Nirvana and having a very short run at being a skateboarder. I don’t go into the wilderness, even though I would love to. But if I did, I wouldn’t wear Red Wings or anything similar. And I wear skinny jeans and fitted clothing. All opposite of the idea of Americana. But these broke the mold for me and caught my eye because they are not just another company trying to copy Alden or Redwing. Their inspiration comes from them but it is clear that they have their owj ideas on how to intrepret the “Americana lok” and thats what I appreciated about them.
And now I am trying to think how I can complement a pair of these bad boys with my skinny jeans!
Supposedly handmade (I cannot verify it) at $200-$300 they seem to be a great option. I will see if I can get a pair of unboxing and review as I would be curious to finally see a pair of Indonesian made shoes/boots. In the meanwhile if you want to order a pair,n follow the link below
