New York City–Based Heirloom Footwear Debuts Women’s

 

Heirloom creates vintage-inspired footwear designed in New York City, sourced in Italy, and handmade in Portugal. The boutique line is known for its Midwestern aesthetic that cites Native American Culture, military, and vintage American design. For this coming fall collection, the brand will introduce women’s offerings for the first time.

Heirloom’s signature styles (now offered in women’s sizing) include the Tatanka suede ankle boot ($550), Tomahawk suede sneaker ($475), and Morrison vintage jogger ($395). Creative Director Scott Burr has been inspired since a trip to the American Southwest during his teens. Upon returning, Burr researched his past and found that his grandfather had served in WWI as a fighter pilot. Fascinated by the innovation of military textiles and the borrowed traditions of Native American construction, Burr created his brand to pay homage to the ancestral traditions of indigenous American tribes, while marrying the materials and innovation of the modern technological era.


Visit the line in person for the month of May at Heirloom’s pop-up shop in collaboration with Jay Kos at 400 Bleecker Street.
