The Allen - Natural Chromepak Factory Second
Boot and Leather
An ideal boot for the Spring/Summer transition. Unlined, breathable and water-resistant, Chromepak is a seldomly-seen chrome tanned leather from Horween. This 4.5/5 ounce leather is tanned using mainly wax and greases for an added level of water resistance. Both of these tanning components give this leather different undertones so no two pairs of boots will look the same. Chromepak will age similarly to natural Chromexcel by typically getting darker over time. Natural-colored leather will typically have variations and these are a large part of what makes this leather so distinctive.
*This boot is a seasonal item and is limited production. Re-stocks will not take place*
- These boots may have leather indents, imperfections, different textures or shades.
*Size 10 boot was worn for promotional photos. Boots will be fully conditioned and buffed/cleaned before shipping. Feel free to reach out for pictures. Thank you.*

The current Parkhurst last runs between a D and single E width with an almond shaped toe. Our general rule of thumb is to go down a half size from your typical sneaker size. We recommend trying your boots on with a thin or dress sock to get an accurate idea of fit since this is a dressier last. If you wear a size 10.5 in sneakers or casual shoes, we would suggest a 10 in our boots. If you wear a single E wide width we would suggest ordering your typical sneaker or casual shoe size. If you are a EE, EEE width or higher our last will not fit you.
Brand size comparison examples:
Viberg 2030 - go one half size up if D/standard width.
Red Wing - Half size up generally, TTS for a snug fit on D width or narrow foot.
Allen Edmond's Boots - TTS.
Alden Barrie - TTS for a snug fit, if wearing thicker socks go 1/2 size up.
Nike - half size down
New Balance - half size down
If you are a 10D on the Brannock device and a true D/standard width, we suggest ordering a 9.5 in our boots. Those who are on the border of a 10D/10E Brannock or who are looking for that extra bit of room in the toebox should order their Brannock size. In this example, size 10.
Sizing can be particular for each individual and we are more than happy to help you determine the correct size in our boots by emailing email@example.com. We can also assist in identifying the right size for you based off of what you wear in other brands of footwear.
