Icons of Time – Zip Boot

One of the most loved men’s footwear designs, the iconic zip boot, has begun making an aggressive comeback within men’s fashion trends and styles.

Similar to the Beatle boot, which was created for The Beatles in the early 1960’s, the zip boot features a distinctive blake stitched rough finished leather sole with a round toe. The tight-fitted boots are ideal for battling the cold weather, ensuring your feet are kept warm and dry at all times.


The zip boot can be styled for any occasion. If you want a casual look opt for the Augusta and pair with jeans and a shirt. If it’s a business boot you’re after then Lamson works best with a suit.

If you’re looking for a solid pair of zip boots this winter that can carry you from casual to polished then the Aquila Hayward Zip Boots should be your only option.



Handmade in Toscana using the finest Italian leathers with a rustic zip the Hayward boot can be perfectly styled with a pair of chinos for more of a dressed-down look.

On the other hand, if you’re feeling a little confident and want to go for more of a European look, throw the boots on with a pair of killer white pants, paired with a sky-blue shirt and navy blazer.
