As we prepare to say goodbye to the cold and rainy season, we get ready to spring forward with some new footwear. No Springtime outfit would be complete without the perfect pair of boots. We go hands-on with a Primary favorite, Parkhurst Brand and their Allen Boot in Natural Chromepak. The Western New York-based company dream up a pair that happily marries work and play for a dressy, yet sturdy look. Find a complete breakdown below.

First Impressions

The Allen exemplifies the ideal pair of boots from its design to the color of the Natural Chromepak leather from Horween. We’re huge fans of the lighter brown leather which looks absolutely amazing with blue or black denim. The leather will age beautifully with wear and breaks in no time. We decided to go for a casual look with an olive work jacket with a white oxford and our favorite blue jeans. We also feel good wearing the boots with all the components made in the USA to support American jobs.

Comfort & Fit

Much like Parkhurst’s other pairs of boots, The Allen is extremely comfortable and fits like a glove. You’ll find breathable leather and a leather insole on the interior, while heel cushioning provides additional comfort. Goodyear Welt construction allows for this pair to re-soled if the time comes. Finishing off the boot is a Dainite Rubber sole for durability and support. For this pair, you’ll want to stick to your true size for the best fit.
