Butts and Shoulders garments are based around natural vegetable tanned leather. Our name refers to the best parts of a leather hide; the butts and the shoulders. Because no chemicals are used for the tanning, the leather is still ‘alive’. And therefore all of our garments will become more beautiful with wear, and age. This unique process is the core of our brand DNA, because it is all about slow fashion.


Our natural tanned leather becomes better over time


Our collection is small. We introduce one big item each year. Last year we welcomed the Monkey Boots (picture above) And all of our items are designed in Holland and constructed in Portugal. We keep our circle of influence very small. All within Europe. This way we have a strong focus on craftsmanship and high-quality materials and production methods.

Apart from the Monkeys, the Worker Boots and Heritage Boots are two exceptional pieces of footwear. The vegetable tanned leather will absorb all the elements. Whether you go on a hike or wear them to work, the patina it develops will be your personal story.

Let our customers speak

“Really nice rugged heritage boots! The quality is splendid! Cannot wait to build some patina! Fine Dutch product!”

ShaunVerified owner

“The boots arrived surprisingly fast and they fit very well (I have wide feet so I’m very happy with how roomy they are). The arch support is also a nice thing I wasn’t expecting.”

Tobias G. Verified owner

“I now wear the Heritage Boots from the 5th of October about 5 days a week. They are flexible and light to wear, waterproof and sturdy at the same time. The leather now has different colors and the “fade” matches beautiful with my denim. Would definitely recommend them.”
