The Petit Aventurier

Black Night

The elegant and chic Petit Aventurier boot is our take on the classic Chelsea boot. The small pull loop, a classic Chelsea boot feature, will compliment your child's independence, allowing them to pull the boot on and off with ease. It's the perfect addition to your child’s fall, winter and spring wardrobe. The Petit Aventurier knows no limits, and will instil confidence and individuality in those who dare to wear. 

The Petit Aventurier is crafted from smooth vegan leather, ensuring it is both durable and soft to the touch. Thanks to the incredibly high level of quality and comfort, the unisex boot is the perfect choice for strolling through the West Village, Central Park plays, or leisurely rides on the Dumbo Carousel. 

The boots have a pull tab, an elasticated side panel that exemplifies the impeccable craftsmanship for a boot that is comfortable and of lasting quality. They're lined with cotton canvas and fixed on natural rubber soles. 

They are handcrafted with 100% Premium Vegan Leather, sourced from the Nopal Cactus. When harvesting the cactus, only the mature leaves of the plant are cut without damaging the cactus itself, allowing for future harvests every six to eight months. Additionally, irrigation systems are not used in this process; the cactus grows solely off rain water and earth minerals that are rich in the region in which the plantation is located and great for the Nopal Cactus. These practices ensure that Dominic & Dempsey's maintain a light footprint on our planet.

Why We're Different

Chromium-tanned leather is the most popular form used when producing leather, and one of the most toxic. Even in modernized and ‘sustainable’ tanneries, it is nearly impossible to reclaim all of the pollutants generated by the tanning process.

At Dominic & Dempsey, our shoes are all handmade in small batches, ensuring ethical practices and sustainability. We use Organic Vegan Cactus Leather to create our unique pieces, guaranteeing a cruelty-free product that is 100% safe for our planet. Learn more
