With roots in the vintage clothing industry dating back to 1967, F As In Frank (FAIF) is an industry leader in all things vintage. With two flagship locations in both Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, B.C. we were extremely humbled when founders Drew and Jesse Heifetz reached out in the fall of 2012 to discuss a potential collaboration project. Funny enough F As In Frank’s first retail location was located in Whistler BC, and to say we frequented the shop on a regular basis would be a huge understatement.
FAIF (fasinfrankvintage.com) asked if we could design a boot inspired by the iconic Ralph Lauren “Ranger”, incorporating MCM (Modern Creation Munich) Cognac Visetos printed leather, repurposed from vintage weekender bags. We said… yes.
20 pairs, each individually dated and numbered, were handcrafted on order… less the pair we selfishly kept for ourselves.
