Horsedie Engieneer Boot Buttock

Black

Since the introduction of beef as primary source of meat for humans, cowhide became the leading choice of leather used in the production of leather jackets and boots. Engineer boots, much like any boot model, are meant to last a lifetime. So it goes without saying, a horsehide boot should be your life-long companion. The true characteristics of horsehide are only revealed when the hide is pit tanned, using vegetable tannin. While cow-hide may be satisfactory for shine, and chrome tanned horsehide would be preferred when optimising for durability, it is pit vegetable tanned leather that can truly epitomise the best of both. Designed for motorcycle riders to protect the feet and lower leg whilst riding. The leather has a perfect shine after each clean.

Buco

Founded in Detroit in 1933, Buco pairs the first syllable of the founders last name, Buegeleisen, with the common abbreviation for company.

A prominent manufacturer of motorcycle parts and accessories, Buco produced windshields, mufflers and other hardware alongside jackets, boots  and other hard-wearing leather goods. The Horsehide rider’s jackets produced during the 1940s-50s were their masterpieces.

The quality and perfection of these jackets remains the gold standard for leather jacket design still today. Although often worn as fashion pieces in the modern day, Buco’s primary concern was to produce gear that would protect riders, as summed up in their motto “protection through research”.

Buco and its products faded into history, but have now been brought back to life. Each model is produced to the precise specifications of the originals, using horsehide of the highest quality, tanned in traditional methods and authentically ageing cotton thread. By continuing to manufacturer classic Buco masterpieces like the J-24 and J-100 jackets, as well as a broad line of engineer boots, leather gloves and other accessories, The Real McCoy’s has proven the legitimate heir of the Buco name and tradition..
