Russell Moccasin Fishing Oxford

—01. Driftwood leather.

Words

I'm always checking in on the latest Japanese Russell Moccasin offerings and these ones would be a great casual summer option. The low profile, lightweight Vibram sole makes them a perfect alternative to other fair-weather styles like the deck shoe, and they have the same recognizable ruggedness as all Russell footwear.

Russell Moccasin South 40 Boot for Context

—01. Horween Whiskey Cavalier Leather.

Words

Russell Moccasin is slowly showing up in more stockists in North America, having been ubiquitous in Japanese select shops for a long time. Context is a logical fit for the legendary bookmaker from the same state and they've collaborated on an incredible version of Russell's South 40 hunting boot. The Horween Whiskey Cavalier leather looks great, especially paired with Vibram's high-traction Olympia sole.

—01. Waxed duck canvas accents.

Words

While Russell Moccasin continue to be difficult to track down outside of Japan, Haven has recently released an interesting collaboration with the American footwear brand. Coming in two colours, they've made a unique version of the PH II Boot featuring a tonal mix of elk leather, suede and duck canvas to create a fine looking all-season boot.

Russell Moccasin Sporting Clays Chukka 5-Eyelet

—01. Vibram 2060 Sole.

Words

I remember seeing and loving a pair of 4-Eyelet Sporting Clay's chukkas a Japanese select shop had made a few months back. Now we have a 5-Eyelet version, and I don't know what it is about the extra brass lace grommets that make me like these boots increasingly, but they undoubtedly add something to this already impeccable design.

Words

Further proof that all the best Russell Moccasin styles are being constructed for Japanese select shops, these chukka boots have to be some of the more attractive black coloured options out there. They feature a Vibram Silvato sole unit and a triple vamp construction for ultimate comfort and weather resistance, as well as sheer good looks.

Russell Moccasin for Double Select Sporting Clays Chukka

01

Image

—01. Double Vamp.

Words

Russell Moccasin has been making traditional, American-made hunting boots with a moccasin construction for 115 years. A lot of their appeal in recent years, has been as a result of interesting and inventive collaborations that don't necessarily utilize the heritage patterns of their past. Double Select has been working with the Wisconsin bootmaker for a little while now, to create some distinct models and this time they've paired the aggressive Vibram ripple sole with Russell's outstanding Sporting Clays Chukka in Tan Laramie suede.

—01. Made in USA.

Words

Russell Moccasin are already the best, but some of the custom makeups in Japan are making the best constructed footwear even better. This pair of Sporting Clays with a Laramie suede collar look like incredible fall weather shoes, which are handmade in Wisconsin all the way.

Russell Moccasin Co. Visit by Nick Horween

Words

Nick Horween from Horween Leather has put together a series of photographs culled from a recent visit to Berlin, Wisconsin that must be very satisfying to the Russell Moccasin heads out there. It's a glimpse into the workings of the longstanding bookmaker, that hasn't changed much since its origins, and shows off some nice triple vamp constructions and a lot of hand-stitching.
