Love Jules Leather Shoe Co. - 808 Mid-Rise Roper Boot

$0.00 CAD

Your boots are expected to ship out:

Upper Color

Please select the color of Horween leather (cowhide) you'd like us to build your custom 808s out of. If you're interested in a two-tone color combination, please select “Two-tone” here, and then fill us in on what you have in mind in the space allotted below. So you’ve got the terminology you need to describe exactly what you’re envisioning in your mind’s eye… in the two-tone 808 prototype we designed (pictured), the “Quarters” (side panels) are English Tan Dublin, while the rest – Vamp (toe), Counter (heel), and Heel Pull are all Dark Olive CXL. Note: We apologize we don’t have sample photos of our 808 Ropers in every color option available - they're just that new! Hopefully the attached photos of some of our other styles will give you enough creative firepower to use your imagination.

Upper Color - Details - If you selected "Two-Tone" above

Please let us know exactly how you'd like us to lay out your two-tone upper, using the technical pattern piece terms as listed above. If you'd simply like us to replicate the two-tone prototype as pictured above, simply type "Signature Two-Tone" and we'll take it from there.

Sole Construction Type

Let us know if you'd like your boots hand-welted (and outstitched) or not. The welt/ faux-welt is that piece of leather that surrounds the outside of the upper (visible from above) and looks to the untrained eye to be part of the leather sole, but in fact is separate from. The difference between a true welt and a faux welt, other than aesthetics is durability/ lifespan and water resistance. Where the true welt is cross-stitched by hand (2 - 3 hours per pair) to the upper, the faux welt is cemented. The true welt is then machine stitched (outstitched) through the full leather sole outside the upper, where the faux-welt is machine (Blake) stitched through the upper (stitch is not exposed), through the full leather sole. Both types of sole construction are extremely durable, and if maintained and cared for, should last 10+ years. However, hand-welted is MORE durable (there's gotta be a top dog) and in our humble opinion (whatever that's worth) is more aesthetically pleasing. The choice is yours.

Sole Profile

Your rubber sole profile options will vary based on whether you opted for a "HAND-WELTED" sole construction or "NOT" (above). If you've decided "NOT", your rubber sole profile options are those pictured in the top row, below. If you opted for a hand-welted sole construction, you can select any of the sole profiles pictured - full-leather soles/ stacked heels with rubber half soles (top) or full rubber soles (bottom).

Are you looking for hand-etched artwork?

We've designated the outside left heel as etchable realestate for your pair of 808s. The canvas we're working with is aprox. 1.5" by 1.5" and you're welcome to choose your own adventure here to make these boots truly yours and yours alone.

Hand-etched artwork - Details - If you selected "Yes" above

As mentioned above, we don't have a lot of realestate to work with, so we can't get too detailed (and please keep in mind we're etching with a wood-burning pen by hand so there are limitations) but you probably already have a pretty good idea of what's possible from what you've seen us do in the past on other pairs. So please describe in as much detail as you can here what you're looking for (for example if you're looking for a monogram include the font/ typography you'd like us to use) and we'll get in touch if we need further clarification.

Shoe Size

Below, we're going to walk you through a self-measurement. We're going to require 5 measurements (LENGTH, SHORT HEEL, INSTEP, BALL, and ANKLE), but to double check you've taken those measurements accurately, please provide us with your average shoe size here (Please include whether the size you're providing is in US/ UK or Euro as well as Men's or Women's). I know your size likely varies across brands/ styles, so simply let us know what size of shoe you tend to purchase most often than not. Too, if this is a surprise gift pair, we realize it's unlikely you'll be able to sneakily obtain the measurements we need to ensure a perfect/ custom fit, but as our shoes do fit "true", we can more often then not avoid a mis-size, if you're able to provide us with the average shoe size of the eventual gift getter (at the very least this will be a good starting point, but we'll likely have you do a little more sleuthing for us to ensure we hit these out of the park).

Shoe Size (Continued) - In-Studio Fitting

Are you local? If so, do you have time to swing by our East Van shop for an In-studio fitting? If the answer is yes, you can ignore the next 5 questions. We'll get in touch shortly to have you by the shop so we can measure up your funky feet ourselves.

Shoe Size (Continued) - Length - Both Feet

Firstly: Place a ruler against a nice flat wall with the '0' at the point where the wall intersects the floor (see #1 below). If the '0' is inset from the end of the ruler, please note how inset it is (1/8" is fairly common), and add that extra length (the length of the inset) to your foot measurement. Secondly: Place one foot at a time on the ruler with your heel against the wall. Note: Please ensure while measuring, you're wearing the thickness of sock you intend to be wearing while wearing your boots. Place the longest part of your foot over the ruler measurement (this may not be your big toe). - Look straight down onto the ruler and note the measurement. Be sure to look down so you are seeing the measurements at right angle to the ruler, if your toes are up slightly off the ruler then the angle at which the measurement is viewed can change the measurement you record. - Also it is important that you are evenly bearing your weight on both feet, in a nicely rested and neutral position, don't put all of your weight on one foot or the other. Repeat this for the other foot, note that they may be slightly different lengths (this is quite common - see below). Note the length of both your left and right feet here.

How to Measure - Length

Shoe Size (Continued) - Short Heel - Right foot only

You will need a flexible "dress maker's" tape measurer (these are readily available at most supermarkets, hardware stores and even Ikea). If you can't find one, a piece of string/ lace will work just as well (you'll obviously just have to measure the length of string after the fact - it's a two-step process). Wrap the tape (or alternative) around the back of your heel at the bottom to the front of your ankle at the top and record the measurement where the tape overlaps. Note: Please ensure while measuring, you're wearing the thickness of sock you intend to be wearing while wearing your boots. It's important that the tape is neither too loose nor tight - you want it to be taught but not tight (See image below for reference). Note the width (circumference) of the "short heel" on your right foot (the measurement of one foot is adequate for our purposes) here.

How to Measure - Short Heel

Shoe Size (Continued) - Instep - Right foot only

Take the flexible tape measurer (or alternative) forward and wrap it around the high point of your arch/instep. Note: Please ensure while measuring, you're wearing the thickness of sock you intend to be wearing while wearing your boots. Again, it's important that the tape is neither too loose nor too tight - you want it to be taught but not tight (See image below for reference). Note the width (circumference) of the "instep" on your right foot (the measurement of one foot is adequate for our purposes) here.

How to Measure - Instep

Shoe Size (Continued) - Ball - Right foot only

The 2nd to last measurement we need from you (we're almost there!) is the ball (joint) of your foot. This measurement is done across the widest point of your foot and should be on a slight angle (further forward on the big toe side than the pinky). It should be taken at the widest point of your first big toe joint and the widest point of your pinky toe joint. Note: Please ensure while measuring, you're wearing the thickness of sock you intend to be wearing while wearing your boots. Again, it's important that the tape is neither too loose nor too tight - you want it to be taught but not tight (See image below for reference). Note the width (circumference) of the "ball" of your right foot (the measurement of one foot is adequate for our purposes) here.

How to Measure - Ball

Shoe Size (Continued) - Ankle - Right foot only

The final measurement we need from you is the width of your ankle. Sorry we don't have a picture guide at this time, but it's pretty straight forward. This measurement is taken around your ankle (tape measurer parallel to the ground) two centimeters above your inner ankle bone. Note: Please ensure while measuring, you're wearing the thickness of sock you intend to be wearing while wearing your boots. Again, it's important that the tape is neither too loose nor too tight - you want it to be taught but not tight. Note the width (circumference) of your right ankle (the measurement of one foot is adequate for our purposes) here.
