Carry Collaborations

White's Boots x Carryology Khonsu Boots 01


Exclusive Release: White’s Boots X Carryology Khonsu Boot

by , April 15, 2021

We’re honored and excited to unveil our Carry Collab XIV with White's Boots, one of the world’s greatest bootmakers, to design the ultimate all-rounder boot for everyday, travel, and adventure:


A boot designed to flex from the mountains to a Michelin star restaurant. Handsome, refined, and built to perform. Featuring the finest materials, world-leading construction, and meticulous attention to the details.

Available for limited pre-order right now.


The pre-order is open for two weeks (ending on April 28th). BUT the pre-order is capped. There is a ‘ceiling’ when it comes to producing the Khonsu and pre-orders will be closed if / when that ceiling is hit. So we recommend you get in quickly! 

And we know, many expected these boots to cost $650+ or more, especially since they are a limited edition collaboration. But the folks at White’s Boots worked with us to create this perfect combination of features and construction methods for the killer price of $399.


Bespoke Sizing: Instructions

Once your order has been received, a representative from White's Boots will contact you with further sizing instructions. You will receive a measurement packet in the mail. Each customer is required to complete the packet and return it to White's Boots within 1 week of placing your order. Once we receive your measurements, there will be a lead time of 6 weeks to build your custom boots.

All sales are final. No returns on sizing issues.


International folks rejoice! White's Boots ships around the world! You'll just cover the shipping costs that are calcuated for your own address.

Built by the very best in the business


White’s Boots have been crafting some of the world’s finest leather boots since 1853. history and legacy doesn’t come much richer. Made in the USA, and made tough for loggers and ranchers and firefighters, from the hands of hard-working craftsmen and craftswomen, in the small PNW city of Spokane, Washington.

From Mountain to Michelin 


Inspired by three different White’s Boots models: the Stevens, the MP-Sherman, and the Main Street. We took the best timeless elements of each boot, and blended them together to create the perfect iconic silhouette, clean and classy and timeless, using the famous MP Last.


The toe cap is also custom, with two rows of stitching instead of four (like on the MP), which adds extra durability but keeps the toe profile equal parts elegant and handsome.


The branding is subtle and embossed high up on the outside of the boot to be hidden with a pant leg, and inside on the insole.

Horween: the world’s best leather


Indisputably one of the world’s very best tanneries, the Horween Tannery is legendary and will supply its famous Chromexcel leather for this project, so every pair of boots will mold beautifully to your feet and develop a rich patina to tell your story, from your adventures.


All that lovely buttery Horween leather meets tough-as-nails durability thanks to double and quadruple rows of stitching to reinforce the boot throughout the upper and through the reinforced heel. While the Chromexcel will mould to your feet the longer you wear them, you never have to worry about treating these delicately thanks to White's expert craftsmanship. They know rugged construction, as their number one business is making boots for wildland firefighters, after all. Here, you've got the best of both worlds.

Goodyear Welt


The gold standard of boot construction. A strip of leather is sewn around the bottom edge of the insole and upper, creating a full 360 ‘wall’ against water, waterproofing the shoe. This also provides extreme durability, and the ability for the boot to be resoled for many years to come. 


Waterproof tongue construction 


Custom spec, ankle height gusseted tongue. Because no matter how well the boot is made, if it uses a traditional tongue, water will just go right around the sides. So we went with a half gusset, making the boot comfortable and easy to take on/off, while allowing you to stay 100% dry while ankle-deep in water.

Subtle cap


The perfect 5" height provides ankle support but doesn’t begin to approach the extreme height of some outdoor hiking boots.


Lace up at speed


When deciding on eyelets, it had a combination of punched (reinforced) and speed hooks for speed. When traveling, going through body scanners and metal detectors can be a huge pain when you’re removing/slipping back on footwear, especially boots. So we added four speed hooks to make that process easier/faster.

Work into your boots, faster 


Those little extra details matter. And when you’re trying to work your feet into your boots, extra leverage always helps. So we added a rear finger loop with some orange pop. Just like the speed hooks, a rear finger loop helps get your boots back on your feet with speed and efficiency. It couldn’t be Carryology without a touch of orange, so we added a single orange stitch on the top. Bonus, it’s hidden discreetly behind your pant leg.

Well-proven sole / Badass performance


The Vibram 430 Mini Lug sole is a pared-back version of a classic commando lug sole. It’s slightly heeled and scored where it is not lugged, allowing the boots to maintain grip across the jagged rocks and slippery icy streams. Oil-resistant and durable. The soles are specifically selected since they offer the benefits of an outdoor boot… but when viewing the boot from the side, the lugs are hidden away from view, keeping the silhouette slim and handsome.


The midsole and shank are also leather (no cheap plastic here). Some brands use plastic here, or even metal. This all-leather construction ensures next-level comfort straight out of the box, unlike some boots that can require an uncomfortable break-in period of days... or weeks.

Indestructible laces 


Custom laces from the future made from UHMWPE (the same stuff as Dyneema). The strongest and most durable laces in the world, by IronlaceThey created laces specifically for this boot, not available off the shelf. An exact fit for the Khonsu, extremely durable, and will last a lifetime. 


They’re made in the USA, they’re guaranteed for life, stretch-free, 9X stronger than steel (break strength of 1,500 lbs), waterproof, will never freeze, fireproof up to 630°F, and more. There’s even a video on YouTube of a guy pulling construction equipment with his truck using a pair of Ironlace laces. No joke. In my humble opinion, they make the best laces on earth. It’s no mistake that they’re called “unbreakable” and “the world’s longest lasting boot laces”.

Khonsu, the spirit of travel

These boots are designed to encapsulate the spirit of travel. And like most of our collabs, we looked to the past for inspiration. To the ancient past, this time around. Khonsu, the ancient Egyptian god of the moon. His name directly translates to “Traveler”. Khonsu has also had the titles "Embracer", "Pathfinder", and "Defender" as he was thought to watch over those who travel at night.


On that mountain top in Hong Kong, perhaps Khonsu was looking over me, a traveler in the night.


Hopefully he’ll look over you too!
