Boots made by Russell Moccasin Company -- experiences - Page 7
Does anyone make something similar to this for $100-$150? (Preferably in a wide size)
BTW, custom orders are 20 weeks wait now. The custom fit of the shoes though are worth the wait. My oxfords are my best fitting shoes hands down.
I used to live in Wisconsin. Owned at one time or another 6-8 pair of various iterations. They even make golf shoes! The fishing oxford may be the most comfortable shoe I own and it's going on 30 years old! The boat shoe and chukkas are very nice, the dbl vamp kangaroo chukkas are a close second to the fishing oxford for comfort and fairly waterproof. Their suede penny loafer is very nice looking, not great support wise, so I wouldn't wear it to hike around town. Oneida chukkas and slip ons are very comfortable, not for concrete, however. Not a great deal of arch support, if you need it, go with an insole. The lightweight hunter is a wonderful boot, butter soft. That's all I've got...
I own a custom Grand Slam Sheep Hunter. If your looking for a well built utilitarian shoe/chukka/boot, this is it.
I've worn them through Maine winters and hiking throughout Maine and New Mexico, they're perfect. It didn't take long for them to form to my feet, and the insulation is a nice touch. I'll try and post some pics later.
Hey all, new to the forum. Back in November I bought a pair of stock Art Carter chukkas to replace a pair of LL Bean upland boots. The fit wasn't quite right around the ankle and they were still a little big, despite sizing down by half. French veal leather was amazing, though. I returned them and put in an order for a pair of custom Joe's PH, double vamp with air bob sole. 6" height should put them right in between the Art Carters and my old Bean boots. Order initially placed in late November, just got an invoice with expected ship date of March 15, which if holds true would put it just under 20 weeks. Can't wait for them.
I'm especially curious about the custom fit. Works out great for lots of people, but for others it's a complete miss. If it works out for me I may go ahead and order a pair of Oneida mocs as well.
