The Gripper External Steel Cap Boot – Black Leather is a twenty-eyelet boot based on an original British Army boot, with screwed, cleated rubber outsole and external steel toecap.


  • SOLE HEIGHT: HEEL – 2.8cm / TOE – 1.5cm
  • SHOE HEIGHT: AT HEEL – 35cm (Height of the shoe upper)


With the growth of heavy industry, thick-soled boots with reinforced toecaps were needed to protect the feet of workers in Britain’s factories and foundries, later becoming the footwear of the British army. Steel cap boots – with their metal cap exposed or concealed beneath the leather upper – became the footwear of the British working class. As skinheads emerged as a youth movement in the early 1960s, their working-class roots were reflected in their adoption of the steel capped Boot.


With a good shine already so you don’t need to work too hard for that perfect look!
