Member News: Billy Tannery launches a new UK-made unisex Desert Boot

Billy Tannery Desert Boots

Innovative British leather brand Billy Tannery launches a new unisex Desert Boot. Made in England from its sustainable goat leather.

This limited-time collaboration brings together leather company Billy Tannery and Suffolk-based shoemaker Jadd Shoes. This is the first time the iconic desert boot style has been made in British goat leather. The leather is produced in Billy Tannery’s own small-batch tannery.

Orders for these boots are open for a very limited time of 12 days only – finishing on the 30th May 2021.

‘The Desert Goat’ boots are available in three colour-ways – chestnut leather, black leather and a stunning green suede.

For £275 the boots are made-to-order by master shoemaker Jadd Friedman of Jadd Shoes, near Woodbridge in Suffolk.

Billy Tannery Desert Boots

Billy Tannery began when founders Jack Millington and Rory Harker discovered that due to growing demand for goat meat and dairy in the UK, there were thousands of goatskins going to waste.

Having partnered with ethical goat meat supplier Cabrito, Billy Tannery uses the leftover hides to produce goat leather in its own ‘microtannery’, based on a farm in Leicestershire.

Founder Jack Millington said:

“Despite being an icon of British footwear culture, it’s sad that most desert boots are now made in the Far East on an industrial scale from materials that have circled the globe.

We think your boots should do most of their travelling on your feet, so we are delighted to launch these desert boots made just a couple of counties away from where the leather is made.”
