Founder Zach Hogue dubbed his Atlanta-based company Ambos because it means “both” in Spanish. “Ambos is about both quality and economic empowerment for the artisans,” he says. These lace-up boots were handmade in Pastores, Guatemala. Each pair takes Elio, a second-generation cobbler, and his two-person team around 11 hours to make. All materials are sourced from the Central American country, except for the label that says “Made in Guatemala”—though soon those will be too. Available in Amarillo and Chestnut. $379 —Tess Malone
