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.
Great All Around Shoe

I had a pair of these made for me several years ago and have worn them in all kinds of places, fly fishing, saltwater fly fishing, dove shoots, quail hunting, and with kahkis and a tie and blazer in a board room. They are all Russell says they are and more.
