The A/W stock to my footwear line, J.FitzPatrick Footwear, has finally arrived! For this season I have stepped out of the classic dress shoe type and finally realized a shoe that I have always wanted but had never found one that really struck me and that is the classic Alpine boot. Calling it the Snoqualmie and naming after a ski resort/mountain in Washington (my home state), the purpose of the design was to try and keep the rugged look of the boot, but somehow slim it down a touch. I did so by not having such a massive toe box on it and using a last that was not too voluminous either. That being, it’s use is not so much intended for proper hiking in the mountains but more for wearing in the city with the same socks you might wear with your dress shoes. But it does have a double sole and a storm welt so it’s also meant to endure the rough weather!
I hope that you all enjoy it as well as the rest of the new models and I wish you all a great weekend!
