This holiday season, the one-stop shop for quality denim, Jean Shop will release their collaboration boot with long-time boot brand, Original Chippewa. Last night, the crew at Jean Shop played host for an intimate party that previewed the collaboration and a series of past styles from Chippewa that will be rereleased and available at the Jean Shop. The “Original Jean Shop Engineer” collaboration boot is an 8-inch Moc toe engineer boot that is handcrafted with an oiled Horween leather body and Vibram sole inspired by a classic logger heel. The boot will be priced at $495 and will only be available at the Jean Shop in the Meatpacking District in New York City.
A wide array of Original Chippewa vintage styles will join the collaboration boot. 75-year-old styles will return in its original shape, form, and color this holiday season, and will be available worldwide. Styles older than your parents like the Original Lace-to-toe Logger from 1935 and the 6-inch Original Service Boot made in 1939 are returning for the first time in decades. If you’re a boot enthusiast, this holiday season is the time to get your hands on the fresh reissues of the Chippewa boots you have been dreaming about getting your hands on. Scrap your time machine plans, the boots are coming this year.
The Jean Shop is located at 435 West 14th Street in the Meatpacking District in New York City, and is open Monday through Saturday from 11am-7pm and Sundays from 12-6pm.
