    thats a good question. i think it really depends on how you will be wearing them. if you live in an area that is very dry and you wont be trucking thru rain or snow the single vamp will do. they will be a little lighter and easier to wear.

    if, on the other hand, you live wear i do where it rains/snows 7 months out of the year the double or tripe vamp is the only way to go ... simply because they will be waterproof.

    i just got my russell catalog and they have some great stuff. they have several new styles and sole options.


    I travel quite a bit and need an "an all purpose" boot. It seems that a double vamp version is the way to go. So your pair is double vamp or triple? Thanks for replying so quickly and I apologize for the questions but I'm planning a work trip near Wisconsin and may have the opportunity to visit their shop.

    Thanks again.

    Want to order this
    http://cgi.ebay.com/Russell-Moccasin...item415721d332
    BUt I dont know the fit well.
    Should I order half size down or a whole size?
    Thanks


    it depends on if its a double of triple vamp construction, at least from my talks with them. they suggest to order at least a half size down in anything that is not a single vamp.

    Of course I'm going out on a limb here, but I would say that you can go down a full size. I have a pair of Russel boots, and they are quite oversized (not sure if it is a 1/2 or 1 full size) and they are a D-width, and these boots are a EE-width, which I'm fairly sure would give that last half size at least.

    That is like the best collection of shoes, I have ever seen. At least the best collection of Russels, I have ever seen.

    Silver&Gold really captured the essence of RM.

    I wore a pair of hikers to Peru and hiked the Inca Trail. Great boots that needed no break-in time. I only wish I had ordered a double vamp to slosh through streams and stuff more easily.

    Sure,

    The black and brown ones are the Birdshooters in Suede.

    The tan ones (last pic) are the TLC Riders in Laramie Suede.

    Yo,

    My wife's pops needs some non-shit boots, so being the good son-in-law I am I kopped some alden kudu's for him... He loved them but owing to some foot problems, they are too heavy and are not gonna fly *sadface*. Are these notably lighter than alden's shit? I think he would like the PH safaris but I want to be careful about the overall heft of the shoe.

    TIA

    Did anybody see these Russell Moccasin dog boots on the Bay??

    Fun - and to me - unknown fact about Russell Moccasin.


    I think I should see the Silver and Gold pics of Russell Mocs everytime I feel like ordering Red Wings or Yuketen. Russell is the way to go.

    Yea, those Silver and Gold Russell looks fantastic. I should think about getting a pair made from Russell.

    Does anyone make something similar to this for $100-$150? (Preferably in a wide size)

    Got these off of ebay a couple weeks back and I'm in love! I own several pairs of Yuketens and these are WAY better! Not even close.

    ^Nice pickup. I have the same pair. It's one my favorites. I need to figure out more outfits to use it with.

    ^ All I wear is jeans and button ups. Go with everything I own. I already want another pair. Maybe chromexcel, might see what a pair like those silver & gold ones would cost to get custom done.
