Following the release of Collab 5, The Black Klondike Teacore Service Boot, this release flips the leather inside out for what I believe to be a world first, a boot made with Roughout Black Klondike leather! This leather from the S.B. Foot tannery is renowned for its use by Red Wing in their limited edition releases. 

Pre-order ends February 6th or while supplies last.

The rough side of this leather has an incredibly fine nap and a lovely color, I could not resist building a boot with it! Plus the appeal of doing something out of the box like flipping black klondike inside out was impossible to pass up. I've left the tongue smooth-side out because I love seeing how the black klondike leather demonstrates its teacore qualities as the laces rub against it, just to remind you of what the boot is actually built with under the hood. 

A new detail has been added for the first time with this release- the use of my branded Pigeon Tree rivets on either side of each quarter providing further reinforcement as well as aesthetics.

*Teacore is a quality in which the black surface coat will wear / scuff away to reveal the brown, or "tea" colored core in the leather. 

The Boot-

• Handmade in Indonesia by Santalum (EST 2010)
• SB Foot Black Klondike Leather
• Last no. 5 - Santalum has re-worked their most popular last to have a more rounded almond toe shape.
• Hand-Stitched Veldtschoen Construction (it's like stitchdown and goodyear welt had a baby) with two-tone dark olive & cream colored thread.
  The inner cream thread extends around the toe, and the dark olive outer thread extends 360° around the entire boot.
• The top of the midsole is painted black so that the outer dark olive sole stitching has a stealth appearance and a slimming effect on the silhouette of the boots.
• Brass Nails used throughout.
• Channeled Insole.
• Natural Cork Filler.
• Leather Toe Puff and Heel Stiffener.

• Natural Leather Midsole with Dr. Sole Supergrip Raw Cord Half Sole
• Natural Low Block Stacked Leather heel with Dr. Sole Supergrip Raw Cord Heel
• Unstructured Plain Toe or Unstructured Cap Toe available.
• 7 Solid Brass Eyelets or 5 Eyelets + 2 Speed Hooks available.
• Low Profile Pull-Tab
• Gusseted Tongue
• Each boot's insole is branded with "Made for ________" and your own name, for a truly bespoke touch.
• Bottom of sole is stamped with the Pigeon Tree logo on the left boot
  and the Santalum leaf on the right.
• Co-branded shoe box with two dust covers (one for each boot),
  individually branded with the Pigeon Tree and Santalum logos.
• Leather Cougar Laces included.

My goal has always been to deliver a boot with unique details, that still maintains its wearability. My vision for this boot has always been with a plain toe and no speed hooks, but I have made it possible for you to order these with a cap toe and or with speed hooks to your liking.


Please see the two sizing diagrams on this listing and provide the following measurements:

Ball, waist, instep, heel and ankle.

Please trace your foot as instructed in the tracing diagram as well.

And lastly, to ensure there are no sizing mishaps, please provide several examples of sizes from various brands in your footwear collection.

Optional Matching Belt- 

No matching belt deal for this release unfortunately. But if I had to choose, I would go with either brown Tarnsjo or roughout vegtan. 


Past collabs have had a 3-4 month turnaround. This will of course depend on how many orders we receive. I put massive emphasis on not rushing a good thing, I would rather them take a little bit of extra time and ensure a perfect boot, than rush them out the door with possible issues. I will be providing updates along the way as soon as they become available!

I will be sending the order details to Santalum as they come in so production can begin immediately.

*Please note that there is a +$20 upcharge for measurements above 29cm

Return Policies and Disclaimers-

• Because the boots are custom sized, they will be final sale. If there's been an error in sizing on our side, we will work to correct the problem as quickly as possible. Please double and triple check all of your measurements so there will be no errors from your side of things.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch and myself or Santalum will be able to offer the info you need.
