ART CARTER Traveling Sportsman Chukka
The late Art Carter, then Editor of Sporting Classics magazine, having traveled the world for 25 years, approached Russell Moccasin in 1995 and requested a special multipurpose shoe... one handsome enough to be worn while traveling yet versatile enough to literally step off an airplane and be worn afield for a day of shooting. We went to work on his request.
The Art Carter Traveling Sportsman by Russell is a unique chukka style featuring built in heel counters, a comfortable cushion collar, a grippy Vibram Air-Bob sole, water resistant double vamp construction, a supportive hand molded outer sole, and an extra wide cut gusset for variable-tightness lacing. The entire shoe is fashioned from buttery-soft heirloom French Veal leather…the fine grained, long lasting leather that remains soft and supple for a lifetime. If you’re a traveling sportsman.....a pair of these fine shoes is a modern day necessity.
Russell Moccasin and the outdoor world lost a valued friend when Art Carter unexpectedly passed away, July 27, 2003. The shoe that carries his name will continue to honor his life.
Custom Made Only.

I own many pairs of made in USA shoes and boots and these are my favorites. They are comfortable and provide all the support and protection my feet need. Plus they look great! Here's a video of my pair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9JA473UW_Y
