The Whalen Onyx

Regular price $250 $156 Sale

Width:


The Whalen is a modernized chukka, designed to go with you anywhere your day takes you. Built on the 415 last and featuring a genuine handsewn seam, the Whalen is sleek yet classic, all in the same step. For the first time, we incorporated a genuine crepe sole for unparalleled comfort right out of the box, making the Whalen the boot you'll never want to take off.

What's In A Name

The Whalen is named for our good friend, Matthew Whalen. Matthew, or "Matty" to some of us, is an accomplished filmaker and photographer, working on multiple national campaigns that you yourself have undoubtedly seen. As accomplished of an artist as Matty is, his true talent lies in his unwaivering and devoted friendship. Kind and humble, sincere and funny, and adventurous like no other, we immediately thought of Matty when we designed this boot.

even better than the photos

Loved the look of the Whalen in the photos, but they're even better looking in person. Really comfortable too, feels like a sneaker/boot hybrid on the foot.

Crepe for the win!

This crepe sole on the Whalen is really nice and modern. Then Onyx suede is sharp. Definitely different and definitely a winner.
