William Lennon’s replica of the B5 type boot issued from 1915 onwards by the Army during The Great War.
Our ‘B series’ style boot is produced using the original patterns from an actual surviving pair of originals & knives found in the factory archives.
Fitted to the original correct wooden 2181 square toe last, the upper is made from heavy gauge, ‘rough out’ reverse leather that is tanned locally. Fitted with a full leather insole, and a brass-wire screwed & stitched double leather outsole, we add the rivet detailing at the quarter seam too.
A military ring tipped leather stack heel, and flat round ‘gripper’ style studs fitted to the leather sole as standard, the boots are waxed and finished with leather laces for authenticity.
Not just ‘lookalikes’, we have re-created the B5 replica boot to the highest level possible.
If the fully studded sole is not for you, the B5 can also be finished with alternative soles for everyday use.
