As its owner George Vlagos says at the beginning of the video, Oak Street Bootmakers makes high-end men's boots and shoes the old-fashion way: on a bench, by hand, in Maine.

We braved the icy cold of Maine in December (it rarely got above 10 degrees during our visit) to film the workshop and shoemaking process to create a short film focusing on the brand's commitment to craftsmanship, quality, and making shoes in the USA.

The video made its debut on the uber-influential men's fashion blog A Continuous Lean and has been featured on Hypebeast, Selectism, Secret Forts and more than 200 other Websites, initiating record-breaking traffic and sales for Oak Street. The video has tallied more than 70K views.
