Shoes for Tall Guys: Made To Measure Boots for the Tall Man

A beloved Midwestern institution offers its custom made shoes for tall guys to the internet masses.


Russell Moccasins describes the craft of hand-making their custom boots and shoes for tall guys as “part art, part cult and part pride.”

Since 1898, the Berlin, Wisconsin-based footwear maker has striven to make the best hunting tall mens boots and outdoor footwear available. They offer a choice of over a hundred different leathers, including exotic options like alligator and ostrich, to the more conventional waterproofed cowhide and the très fine French veal; a selection of soles including Vibram and cushion crepe; a range of styles from chukkas to the namesake moccasins; a custom fit (which can be done in person or online); and a very reasonable price point (from $179) for a high-quality shoe, let alone a made-to-measure one.
