When it comes to envy-inducing, leather-crafted pieces (and we mean anything), you’ll have a hard time finding a brand that keeps things more sophisticated than Hard Graft. And that’s not a knock to anyone — the U.K.-bred imprint is simply incredible at what it does. Unsurprisingly, the label released a heavy-duty pair of calfskin-crafted stompers perfect for this time of year.

Introducing the Alpine Duck Boot, an eye-catching set of boots prepared to battle anything from unpredictable weather to a dinner date. For starters, the winter-ready boots feature a plush, Italian wool shearling lining, paving the way for optimized warmth and a remarkably elevated take on a typical pair of Uggs. Moving away from its interior, the handsome boots feature vegetable-tanned, rubberized calfskin uppers for maximum protection against water and dirt.

Comfort-wise, the boot sits on a set of Vibram lug soles, deeming it versatile enough for anything from a rainy night on the town to outdoor adventuring. Additionally, the brand implements a sturdy cement construction method and rounds the forefoot out with re-inforced toecaps. Self-proclaimed as the “4×4 of footwear,” it’s no doubt that Hardgraft put its all into making these shoes as functional as they are stylish.
