Russell Gentleman's Classic Birdshooter
The new Russell Gentleman's Classic Birdshooter, heralding the return of elegance afield.
In times gone by when gentlemen and ladies went afield, they dressed in natural fibers...wool trousers, shirts and socks, oiled cotton field coats and fine leather boots. Trousers were most normally “bloused” inside the sport’s boots to keep critters, water, dust and cold breezes on the outside where they belong. Very utilitarian.
We have resurrected the classic tall birdshooter made famous by Russell Moccasin more that 80 years ago, albeit with updated materials. The Gentleman’s Classic Birdshooter is 14 inches tall and made from a new rich oil stuffed waterproofed Timberjack leather in traditional chocolate brown. For a steady walking platform we equipped it with a lightweight oak leather midsole and added a low-lugged Vibram 430 sole with a distinct heel, (just in case you need to ride a horse during your bird hunt). Double vamp construction for added support, comfort and waterproofness, waterproofed Aqua Tanned leather lined uppers plus sturdy hand formed oak leather heel counters. Solid brass lacing studs in the top four eyelets. Classic in every way.
Turtleskin® SnakeArmor can be added for $75.00.00, for maximum protection from snakes and thorns.

Okay, this is functionally the birdshooter and that's a good thing. But it cranks the adventure style knob to 11. Tuck your canvas pants into these, don your fedora and go looking for the Ark of the Covenant. And know they will get you there and back in comfort and style.
