A good boot is hard to find. One that fits well, and that will last, is even more rare. To the rescue is celebrity entrepreneur Rande Gerber, who has teamed with Nolan Walsh of Thursday Boots, to create Thursday Casamoto, a superior boot at $235. Yes, $235.
Available at ThursdayBoots.com, the sleek new footwear comes in two colors, black and café racer brown, so why not have both? It all started because Gerber always seeks the best in everything (think Casamigos Tequila & Mezcal, which he founded with pals George Clooney and Michael Meldman).
“When I can’t find the best, I create it, which is how after over 700 ‘sample’ bottles, Casamigos was born. And because I’m always creating for myself, I never compromise or settle for anything less than perfect,” shares Rande Gerber. He continues by saying, “When my friends at Thursday Boot asked me to partner with them to design the ultimate boot, I took all my favorite boots and combined those details into the Casamoto. Made with the highest-quality, softest leather to ensure ultimate comfort, but rugged enough on your favorite ride. I’m sure they will be your go-to boots. I guess now you can buy cool.”
What the boot turned out to be, thanks to Gerber and Walsh’s attention to detail, is a revised take on the classic motorcycle boot. But, you don’t have to be on two wheels to enjoy it. The style and fabrication of the boot design’s elements contain a super-soft, semi-distressed upper, custom-developed lug outsole with 100% Recycled RPET laces and aglet that is perfect for any occasion.
This is a boot that is going places. It can be just as at home on a world-wide jaunt as it would be for date night. Now that’s versatility. ““I’ve always admired Rande’s casual, effortless style with an impeccable attention to detail,” states co-creator Nolan Walsh. “This collaboration was particularly exciting and was custom developed for this boot to reflect the high quality and approachable ethos of both Rande and Casamigos.”
