SS19 Ethan Monkey Boot and Dominic Monkey Shoe

SS19 Ethan Monkey Boot and Dominic Monkey Shoe

Do you know that after the Stow country boot and Bouton brogue shoe, the Tricker’s Ethan monkey boot is one of our most popular styles requested year after year?

Worn around the globe by trendsetters and influencers both young and old, this once humble boot has once again become centre stage in fashion.

Dating back to World War 2, Monkey Boots were worn as standard issue by the Czechoslovakian army. Their durability, practicality and the fact they were inexpensive made these boots ideal for the foot soldier.

The Monkey Boot re-emerged in the late 60s when Mods gave them a new lease of life and soon became part of their fashion stable along with the Harrington Jacket and Levis jeans. In the late 70s and 80s they were adopted by Skinheads, Punks and students.

The Collection

For SS19, we have revived the Ethan and given it a new look.

The finish is MC leather. This is a where the leather is burnished to highlight a natural look and variation in the grain. A wax finish and clear protective topcoat is applied to create a polished look.

We have introduced the Vibram® Morflex sole. Still keeping the height of the original sole, this lighter weight version offers excellent comfort, enhanced mobility and is also high shock absorbing.

To compliment Ethan, we have developed Dominic, a Monkey shoe.
