Jack Erwin’s latest collection is all about the city dweller.
In collaboration with multidisciplinary creative agency ARRO Studio, the label is launching two luxe boot styles that combine comfort and elegance for city life. The shoes are intended to take wearers from the office to the street — combining the comfort and ease of a sneaker with the appropriateness of a dress shoe.
Both styles are handcrafted in Portugal, with leathers sourced from leading European tanneries. The Harrison Chelsea boot features a weather-resistant rubberized leather band that wraps around the outsole to protect from the elements. The boots have a concealed custom alternating lug design, a high profile and a traction pattern built to withstand the city streets. The shoes retail for $185.

Another style is a three-eyelet chukka boot called the Reade, which features blade-shaped stitching around the laces and a rubber outsole. Like the Harrison, it features a concealed custom alternating lug design, a high profile and a traction pattern. The Reade retails for $145.
Launched in 2013 by Lane Gerson and Ariel Nelson, Jack Erwin aims to create beautifully designed and thoughtfully constructed products that men want. The brand began with a direct-to-consumer approach on Jackerwin.com and has since expanded into physical locations, with a flagship on New York’s Madison Avenue and a fitting room in Tribeca.
