"La Botte Gardiane's classic shape that's been worn by French cowboys for well over half a century. The addition of a crepe sole not only makes them a dream to walk in, it also recontextualizes the heritage model into something that can be worked effortlessly into our wardrobes. The waxed crust leather is incredibly hard wearing and really develops with age - I like when it's re-waxed and conditioned for some deeper color variation, but also dig that I can rock them as a soft suede-like boots fresh out the box." ---Ludwin

About this Maker

La Botte Gardiane

Made for herdsmen in the South French country, appreciated by all who wish they were there

The cowboy is not exclusive to southwestern North America, but is a starring role in cattle driven areas demanding horseback riding to traverse terrain, and more importantly, hard wearing boots. Camargue, a marshy region in the South of France, is lush with wildlife and home to free running bulls, horses, and the gardian - the French cowboy.

Since 1958, La Botte Gardiane has been handcrafting boots expressly to outfit these herdsmen, with comfort and durability being a necessity to brave the wetlands. Notwithstanding utilitarian origins, the boots produced exhibit elegant curves and supple leathers, a departure from some of the harsh points and squares that you’d find in American counterparts. More subtle in design, the gardian boots have a definite air of chicness about them - it’s that kind of nonchalance you can only expect from a French cowboy boot.

La Botte Gardiane still produces all of their footwear in the Camargue to this day, with a high priority placed on utilizing domestically sourced hides to the fullest. Their roster has since expanded far beyond their classic ropers, given our introduction to them was through fisherman sandals, but their heritage savoir-faire is evident across all styles.
