Tracy has not gone for the cheapest version of these Hawkin's re-makes from NPS. She's done her research and tried to recreate the boots as they were. She's chosen a supple, incredibly comfortable leather. The leather is cut with 'knives' from the old Hawkins factory. Only a few of these beauties are left. Get them while you can, because they will never be made again in this way.
Superb quality and craftsmanship

This has to be the ultimate, sleekest, most appealing version of that seminal piece of footwear, the english air-cushioned derby boot. The full-grain, supple leather is just gorgeous, the oxblood colour deep and warm, the finish impeccable. The proverbial comfort of the air cushion sole doesn't even have to be mentioned, the fit is perfect, the feel of lacing up these beauties on one's feet and legs immensely satisfying. The boot's design strikes a fine balance between the well-known, well-loved tough attitude and street credibility of an air-cushion derby boot and a sleeker approach to the derby boot theme.
