    Thanks for that. A nice testament to Russell that they're looking that good after 30 years.

    Saw these the other day at a shop in Tokyo. Man they were beautiful. My first experince really with Russell Moc. They were built like tanks!

    Is this the most active thread on Russell Moc on SF?

    RM's are really nice and some of the best built moccasins styled shoes and boots you can buy. If you ever make it out to their shop they really are nice people but they really unique in the sense that they don't advertise or need the attention like most other companies and retailers need, so they are not likely to be very popular in forums. Plus, their stuff literally takes forever to get.

    I was definitely impressed by the boots I saw here in Tokyo last week. Unfortunately, nobody here ever stocks my size. I have since been checking RM out online. They may win a prize for having the smallest photos available on their website. But as you said, that's not their focus. It seems like the best place to check out their styles online is Rakuten. Lots of very interesting Japanese makeups.

    I'm not usually much of a fan of green shoes. But that above chukka in green reverse chamois is fantastic. Love chamois in general, but green looks really nice. Wish more makers used that. Might have to do a special order with RM.

    If you don't want to wait and you fit these, I've got 11C golf shoes on B&S, like new, available. Prob fit an 11.5 more narrow foot, I'm a D and they fit. You can have the sole redone in 4 weeks and have a great shoe quick. They may be able to stretch the last to close to a D as well. FYI

    At one point they use to have a sale document that they would update once in a while and it might be worth checking out if they still have it because they put up all the styles/sizes that get return and other styles they have on hand. Last time I checked they had a lot of different styles but in strange sizes. But I agree, there website needs to be updated with better pictures.

    Anyone in here owners of both RM and/or Alden/Red Wing that can jot their respective sizes down? Trying to get an idea of what I need in RM if I'm generally a 10.5D.

    Russell's run about a size smaller. So, if you're a 10.5D brannock, you're probably a 9.5D RM. They do rec you draw an outline of your foot, preferably in the afternoon, and send it to them. Or better yet, go to Berlin, WI and have them fit you! Nice place to visit. I wear a 12 and my size 10.5 from 30 years ago still fit. I've most likely stretched them out a bit. Just had new soles put on and relasted, I asked them to stretch them out length wise as much as they could. That being said, a size and a half is too much generally. Hope that helps, great shoes/boots. I especially like the chukkas and the fishing oxford. Call them, they are very friendly, like most Badgers(gov Walker excepted).

    Appreciate the advice! For clarification, should this read "size larger"?

    I guess so. You want to order a size smaller than your normal size. Best to do the outline thing.

    The boots are made in the US, so if you have a pair made it will be 20 weeks, but you could buy a stock boot. I don't see how buying from a UK dealer instead of a US dealer will help you out with the 20 weeks

    Thank you to whoever bumped this thread.


    I am always on the lookout for manufacturers who make 'extended sizes', and I am very pleased to find our that Russell Moccasin advertise the ability to make up to a size 18 (I wear a 15/16). Up until seeing this thread I had never heard of RM.


    Anyone know of any other shoe/boot manufacturers, with a good reputation, who make extended size shoe/boots?

    Catchh, really nice! Looks like standard chukkas in brown suede?

    My RM boots (pics a couple pages back) have proven to be the most comfortable and all around versatile boots I've ever had. Built like a tank, with a good application of Obenauf's they're about as waterproof as I could have imagined, they stand up to rain and snow, feet don't overheat in them and the interior leather has just molded to the shape of my foot.

    Yeah, I basically got the photo from Silver and Gold and put it in the order and just asked for dark brown suede. They are getting more and more comfy after each day of wearing them and breaking them in.

    The ones you got are really nice also. Definitely more built for the winter than mine. How long did it take before it begins to shape to your foot?

    These are magnificent looking. How did you size relative to other shoes? Did you do the measurements or just specify a size? Most people advise to size a half size down from TTS, right?

    Well I was told I had to do the measurements on the instructions they have online and mail them in so it will be fitted properly. So really its all custom, there is no size on it from what I can tell.

    The 9 C inside isn't the sizing? I was curious whether you provided them the measurements on the order sheet or just ordered a specified size. I am trolling some ebay auctions for RMs and trying to hypothesize whether 8E sized RM boots will fit my 8.5E TTS feet.
