Built by hand, stitched to serve.
Comfort, tradition, lightweight durability. Start with our iconic Acadia, take what makes it outstanding, update it with the latest—and you have the Stalwart. Built on a more athletic last, the Stalwart relies on our hand-crafted, stitchdown construction to uphold its strength and stability while a full-length, removable footbed serves up the comfort you need. Add a new insole board instead of a shank for lighter weight and you have a versatile and durable boot set to thrive during long hours of service.
Making your longest shifts feel shorter
We know that heavy steps add up quickly over the course of a day and can distract from the job at hand. For the Stalwart we sought ways to reduce weight and maintain the rugged durability the job demands, day after day. The answer was a new bi-fit board. Unifying the shank and midsole into one piece that provides ample arch support, molded cupping for the heel, and excellent flexibility in the forefoot. For where the rubber meets the road, we updated the Vibram Kletterlift outsole with a lower lug for more weight savings, while retaining excellent traction. The result is a Stalwart that’ll keep your footsteps light on even the longest shift.
Easy on your feet from the first step
Durability that can match the demands of the daily grind is a must for any boot, but often that comes with a tradeoff of time spent properly breaking in a new pair. In designing the Stalwart, we wanted it to be comfortably ready for service from day one. To do that we combined the updated bi-fit midsole construction with a plush removable footbed to make the Stalwart feel broken in from the first time you lace them up. No need to plan around the break-in period any longer.
Proven to perform, proven to last
Starting with our renowned stitchdown construction, we built a new last for the Stalwart that features a broader forefoot fit. This allows for additional breathing room in the toes, while still maintaining the durability and recrafting options of our traditional stitchdown boots. It even allows for the inclusion of a removable full length footbed while maintaining the classic aesthetics of its Acadia inspiration. A boot doesn’t need to feel hard as a rock to wear strong like granite.
