Gaziano & Girling Burnham MTO

The Gaziano & Girling Burnham is a wholecut Chelsea boot. Wholecuts are very handsome and comfortable because they’re made from a single piece of leather and have no seams. They’re also much more labor intensive to produce. The owner of this pair had them made up to wear on his motorcycle, thus the Scotch Grain upper and Ridgeway soles.

Burnham Black Arran Grain, Ridgeway Soles MH71 Last – MTO*

Burnham - Leffot 1

Gaziano & Girling offers three Scotch Grains the finest being Pin Grain, then Highland, and finally Arran which is the deepest. Once the leather is stretched over the last the grain smoothes out quite a bit. It’s particularly nice on this wholecut. The grain adds a subtle texture and a slightly more rugged look which works well with the heavy lug soles.
