Details about 13 MC
Gentlemen who like to keep their casual looks smart would do well to choose No. 13 MC. The desert boot has numbered among the most popular types of leisure shoes since the ‘60s, and makes an excellent match for lightweight chinos, modern shorts and classic jeans.
Summery chic desert boot in beige velours
No. 13 MC is distinguished by its ankle-high shaft, which consists entirely of velours that has been fully dyed beige. Side pieces that extend far to the back of the shoe end in open two-eyelet lacing at the front and ensure wearing comfort, particularly for men with high insteps and/or broad forefeet. Made in the heart of Tuscany, this beige desert boot from our “Italian Line” features a traditional crepe sole. It also follows tradition in forgoing lining — instead, the toe cap and counter have been reinforced. The result: an extraordinarily lightweight, flexible, breathable and comfortable shoe.
Whether it is worn in spring, summer or fall, so long as the weather is dry, this beige desert boot is the perfect choice. It is stylish and comfortable all at once. Originally worn by British officers stationed in Africa during the Second World War, the desert boot became a popular casual shoe among students. Its popularity has endured across the ensuing generations.
Ankle boots are characterised by an ankle-high vamp, a high-cut lace style and, in some cases, elasticated panels. Since the 19th century, these comfortable slip-in shoes have been an indispensable piece of men’s footwear and are the ideal choice for inclement weather. This elegant ankle boot in beige is finer in appearance than a boot.
The desert last is distinguished by a strongly rounded toe cap and generous overall width. The roomy mid-foot area ensures a high degree of wearing comfort, particularly for men with high insteps. Suitable for average-width and wide feet.
Processed velours is an extremely fine, fully-dyed type of rough leather that is taken from the flesh side of the hide. Velours is extremely soft and resistant to soiling. It is easy to care for; regular brushing with a suede brush suffices to keep your velours shoes in good shape.
