Grand Slam Sheep Hunter
For Extreme Conditions: sturdier and more rigid than any other Russell boot...yet comfortable to wear. A new 10” boot featuring leather lined uppers, reinforced ankle support, heel counters, triple vamp construction, waterproofed WeatherTuff leather, back pull loop, cushion collar, 9 oz. bullhide hand molded wrap around outer sole, sturdy oak leather midsole and heavy duty Vibram Montagna sole. Tougher, more rigid, less flexible than any boot we have ever made...yet still comfortable to wear. It’s as close to a technical climbing boot as an all leather boot can be. Made to measure only. Standard Height is 10"
Custom Made Only.
Sturdy & rigid for sure.

A+, very tough boots.
Russell Moccasin is not kidding, they are VERY sturdy and VERY rigid. That is good for walking on rocky terrain in my opinion.
Russell worked w/me to make them fit; I have very hard feet to fit. Kudos for them for that. Have used them for shoveling snow, had no issues w/waterproofing. Note: I do wash them thoroughly w/saddle soap and triple seal them with Obenauf's every spring.
I've had them for six years now, they did stretch a bit, have to wear two pairs of really thick socks to fit now, but that's okay as I wear them exclusively in cold weather.
