Boots made by Russell Moccasin Company -- experiences - Page 13

4", quick and dirty picks (overexposed, too:embar:). Newporter sole works great on ice and snow. Again, not warm enough for winter in colder climates. After about five years, the wear is showing at the heels, but not due for resoling yet.Excellent boots. In early September I spent a week in them, wedding reception and hiking in British Columbia Coastal Mountains, although they are not particularly suited for mountain hiking, soles are very thin.

Unless you subscribe to barefoot walking, you will be better off with other Russell Moccasin offerings.

I really like more room in the toe box, my next Russells will be on Munson last as well.

All good to know, thanks!

Looking to get these vintage RL boots duplicated, which I assume were made by Russell. The company confirmed that they used to produce for RL, but they said they made their birdshooter (I assume the South 40 in a 6" or 7" height? With just seven eyelets?)

I'm wondering if the style might not be better as the safari PH boot, however. Given that the RL boot was meant to be worn more as a casual city shoe, the safari's double moccasin bottom seems like it would be less chunky than the South 40's triple vamp.

Anyone have an opinion?

The leather of the South 40 is also chunkier. I like the triple vamp because it adds a little more...Russell to Russells. I have a pair of Imperials and they look like any other boot but my PHs look unique and only Russell's does that style.
