While the boots are certainly chic and can be imagined on any downtown siren, they are made to withstand the actual grit of working on a farm. “At SHFWW we love classic design–these boots are a timeless and easy staple regardless of if you’re mucking it up on city streets or in a pasture,” says the brand’s CEO Daphne Seybold. There are some numbers to back up Seybold’s statement, too: The pairs are made with 5mm of Neo-Tech waterproof insulation and 2mm of air mesh for temperature regulation. In addition, they have a BioGrip slip-resistant outsole and a wicking feature to keep feet dry, which is useful no matter where you are.
Though these boots are made with bucolic fields in mind, the campaign, shot by Sue Kwon, shows how they can be worn downtown. In one instance, stylist Stella Greenspan wears an oversized leather jacket and an itty-bitty dress with the camo pair while photographer Quil Lemons sits on a sidewalk in a remixed Canadian tuxedo, his pants tucked into a plain pair. But no matter where someone or how someone chooses to wear them, they are supporting a good cause: 100 percent of all profits from Bogs e-commerce sales will be donated directly to Sky High Farm, which donates 100 percent of its harvest to New York’s food insecure communities.
