pskaufman.... x Me

after almost a year in the making, we're super excited to launch the collaboration between pskaufman... and Mimi Elashiry. 

Mimi Elashiry (Australian model, dancer, traveler + creator) and Paul Kaufman's friendship began over boots and a love of the style-soaked vintage American western clothing they both collected.  Drawing on their shared obsession for vintage western boots,  passion for the environment and a love for well-made, functional products, it was inevitable that Mimi and Paul  would conjure something magical together.

the first style to roll out is the JUNCTION eastern boot: inspired by Mimi's Egyptian heritage and the notion of cow-boys and girls and their boots, in the middle east,  Mimi and Paul created a collection of Eastern boots, that are equally suitable for rounding up livestock in the desert or dancing the night away on a felucca sailing down the Nile! 

Mimi and Paul's shared obsession with vintage western boots has inspired a unique twist on classic western boots. Acknowledging the western boot ethic of practicality and no-nonsense, this construction features all the same details that make pskaufman... distinctively comfortable and durable:

soft leather uppers and signature turquoise leather lining and footbed that forms to your foot over time, making incredibly comfortable boots. hand-lasted and sewn with a leather welt by genuine goodyear-welt construction, then nailed in the shank area with 80 nails/pair, for iron-like strength. leather outsoles and leather heels with toplifts of repurposed jet tire inner tubes, using the LightTread (TM) process for added flexibility, comfort and durability! the entire shoe is then hand-finished to ensure each shoe has its own unique character.
