A beloved midwestern institution offers its custom made creations to the internet masses.
Russell Moccasins describes the craft of hand-making their custom boots and shoes as “part art, part cult and part pride.” Since 1898, the Berlin, Wisconsin-based footwear maker has striven to make the best hunting 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.
Order your winter boots now for next year—it takes 20 weeks on average for a pair to be made—or see if you can nab your size and style from the small selection of in stock items.
