Long Branch Wingtip Boots. Why It’s Great Our popular Dalton is the seed from which the Long Branch grew and if you look closely you can tell it didn’t fall far from the tree. Recraftable and sold with two pairs of laces to suit your mood, we are sure you will grow to love the Long Branch as much as we have. How It’s Made The Long Branch shares the round toe of the 511 last and similar brogueing and wing tip blucher styling of its forefather. But where the Dalton is designed to be more elegant, one look at the Long Branch’s bigger perfs, split-reverse welt and Vibram rubber lug sole tells you it is crafted to be hardier footwear. A true boot in every sense of the word, we’ve even given the Long Branch four exposed eyelets to go with three speed hooks as an ode to its work boot brethren. How to Wear It As one of our toughest boots, this boot is best paired with your weekend casual wear, and works perfectly with jeans, especially with the trendy red laces. The wingtip and meticulous brogue detailing also class it up a little to make pairing with khakis and slacks a breeze as well.
