*See Sizing Guide

Elegant boots are Yearn's forte, which is, in part, exemplified by a beautifully tanned calf leather in a Burgandy colour. These Balmoral Boots are hand-welted, light, and feature a narrow waist.

In contrast to, say, a chunkier Dainite or Commando sole, the bark-tanned Italian leather soles of the BTS 226 tend to be more elegant.

Hand-welted Construction

Hand-stitched Outsoles

Y02 Last

  • Hand-welted Construction

    In contrast to Goodyear or cement welting, hand-welting is a labour intensive process that results in a lighter and more comfortable shoe. The uppers are held on the last for an average of three full days.

  • Bark-tanned Soles

    As a standard feature, all Yearn shoes have premium leather soles that have been bark-tanned. Every outsole is also hand-stitched, which extends the number of possible resoles.
