Mark McNairy x ACL & Co. Brogue Boots | A Continuous Lean.

Mark McNairy x ACL & Co. Brogue Boots

Aug 5th, 2011 | Categories: ACL & Co., ACL SHOP | by Michael Williams

One of the first product collaborations that landed in the ACL Shop back when it all began was with my friend Mark McNairy on a few pairs of special English-made shoes. That was in November of 2009 and Mark has gone on to do a million different combinations for his Mark McNairy New Amsterdam collection, but one of the my favorite styles from his line was always the country brogue with the white vibram sole.

My personal style tends to lean me more towards boots than shoes, which is why I teamed up with McNairy again to make two new special styles of the aforementioned country brogues. And I have to say, Mark and I are both pretty thrilled with how the boots turned out. And so, launching today in the ACL Shop are two limited-run of Mark McNairy New Amsterdam brogue boots made exclusively for ACL & Co. The seven-eyelet brogue boots both feature a natural storm (Goodyear) welt, white Vibram soles and outdoor laces, pairing a more refined shape with more rugged details. Made in England and available now in the ACL Shop. [Mark McNairy x ACL & Co.]

    You can put monster truck tyres, and loud exhaust on a classic Range Rover if you want, but you might be better off just buying two trucks.

    I sort of feel the same way about these. I like British country life, and American work boots, but not necessisarily cobbled together. I mean, that has to be the pointiest toe that a white vibram sole has ever been fashioned into.

    Would wearing shooting breeks and cowboy boots also be dope as fuck?

    All valid points there Bill. I like them though. And you know what they say, there’s an ass for every seat.

    How does the vibram wedge feel as compared to the plantation crepe you’d usually see on this type of boot? I’d guess not as comfortable but longer wearing?

    I need that navy pair, but alas, payday isn’t until Thursday. If they are still availble, then this was meant to be. and @matty i have vibram cristy soles on an old pair of desert boots…still comfortable imo

    I strongly suspect that Present/Trickers were doing something similar, but probably of higher quality, earlier – and still are.
