We have to say we’re pretty excited to have come across the New England Outerwear Co., and specifically these “Mountaineer” boots. As they themselves say, “Each stitch is sewn by a craftsmen or women with over 20 years experience making footwear. True moccasin constructions allows a shoe to wrap, shape, and mold to your foot. The more you wear them, the more they become customized to your foot; and in our opinion become more beautiful with age. The vamp kicker are hand sewn by awl and needle, this allows the shoe to be crafted onto the last, and the handsewer uses their skill to adjust and fit the shape, so that each shoe starts out a bit different, and ready to take the shape of your foot.”
You can pick up a pair of these highly limited boots here.

Together with Thrasher Magazine, LRG is set to release 1947, the brand’s second full-length skateboarding video. Featuring the likes of Tom Asta and Miles Silvas, the film includes a compilation of raw footage highlighting skate culture. The name of the film honors the late LRG co-founder Jonas Bevacqua and his family as Jonas frequently incorporated “47″ and “1947″ into his brand as a tribute to his mother, Helen. He was very vocal about the importance of his family and attributed the label’s success to their unconditional support. Since the brand’s inception, 1947 has come to be a symbol of Jonas’ family’s love as well as the dedication to something greater than one’s self. LRG is proud to still be a family-run operation today and the film stands as an accolade to the people behind its scenes. Check out the trailer to 1947 above and be on the lookout for its official release.
