The Most Wanted Fly London Boots
Fly London Salv Boots
The Salv boot is Fly London’s interpretation of the classic Chelsea boot — but with an extra dose of comfort and elevated heel. Supple leather forms the streamlined upper before meeting the exaggerated rubber cleated sole, a promising feature for keeping your comfortable throughout urban treks. Finishing the style is the label’s fly motif embossed at the heel.
Fly London Baco Boots
Some boots just seem to exude a devil-may-care attitude, and it looks like the Fly London Baco boots are definitely one of them. A part of the label’s Brooklyn line, the boot sits atop a statement rubber sole foundation. The boot offers pointed side gussets, exposed stitching and a side zip closure. Look for the Baco for a contemporary take on a combat boot and Chelsea hybrid.
Fly London Reko Boots
Fly London knows the power of a well-crafted calf boot. The Reko boot offers a rounded toe style that sits alongside the asymmetrical top-line, exposed stitching design and ultra-functional rubber sole. The cold weather-friendly foot style is completed with a side zip closure for easy on, easy off.
The Fly London Boots Sizing Guide
Fly London boots use European sizing. If you’re unsure of what your European size is, refer to the chart below to find your corresponding size.
For example, if you normally wear a US size 7.5, you should buy your Fly London boots in a European size 38.
If you’d like to measure your foot, we recommend taking a ruler and lining it up beside your foot, the measurement should run from your heel to your longest toe. Then, find the corresponding size to your centimeter measurement below.
How To Care For Your Fly London Boots
All Fly London boots are crafted from either premium leather or supple suede. Some leather and suede constructions may be offered in different finishes which will be clearly stated on their particular product page. See below for our advice on how to care for your Fly London boots.
Leather: Apply a protective leather cream or wax to the surface of your boots before wear. This will help protect the leather from marks or water damage. If you do notice marks on your boots, apply a leather cleaning product to your footwear with a soft cloth. Do not wear the boots until the product has completely dried.
Suede: Fly London’s Oil Suede material is pre-treated with a finishing oil for protection against marks. If you’d like to add your own protective barrier, we recommend a suede spray. Simply apply the product according to the manufacturer’s instructions and leave to dry.
Using shoe trees or inserts for long-term storage can also be a key way to ensure your boots stand the test of time. These tools prevent your boots from losing their shape when not in use.
