SS17 Quickie: Oak Street Bootmakers

May 17, 2016 BY CAPSULE


The son of a cobbler, Oak Street Bootmakers' founder and designer George Vlagos apprenticed at his father’s shop where he learned the craft of shoemaking from an early age. Today, George seeks to preserve the heritage of fine shoemaking through thoughtfully designed and attentively crafted shoes.

Known for its impeccably crafted made in USA footwear, all Oak Street shoes and boots are handcrafted in the USA by shoemakers with over 20 years of experience. The highest standards of production are employed to yield shoes that are as durable as they are comfortable. Each pair makes use of replaceable outsoles, a feature normally reserved for formal footwear, to ensure a lifetime of wear.

SS17 will be marked with an extensive use of suede from England's CF Stead tannery. Check out the new collection at Capsule New York Men's
