La Botte Gardiene has spent decades manufacturing rugged leather boots for French ranchers. They are a family-run company based in rural, southern France, in a town similar to Ojai, and also famous for its equestrian lifestyle. Discovered by In The Field on one of their many Eruption adventures, the Roes traveled to France to find La Botte Gardiene and meet the son and daughter who have taken over the company. These days, designer Fanny Agulhon brings a more refined and urban feel to the classic silhouettes. In The Field is one of the only La Botte Gardiene retailers in the USA.
