Blackbird have worked together with Alden to rework one of their classic silhouettes, the Foss Tugger Work Boot
“The Foss Tugger was inspired by Seattle’s famous Foss tugboats. Blackbird owner Nicole Miller’s grandfather worked on their radios, and she always admired the tugs as a child. The Miller home had the Foss transponder set up in the dining room, and from there messages were sent from Seattle to Tacoma and back for at least 30 years.”
These boots are directly inspired by tug boat life with all the features of a high quality work boot. The Navy Blucher High Boot has a plain toe while the quality is second to none with the feature of True Balance (same as the 405 Indy boot). The upper is a flat black Novo calf leather, the outsole a light-weight Goodyear molded rubber unit in light espresso color. Finally the welt is enhanced with the black Goodyear leather welt construction, and has a full leather lining.
