Custom Hides Testimonials

My name is Carla Ohanesian. I won a $500.00 gift certificate from Russell Moccasins at the CRAWT fund raiser in Las Vegas in 2017. I wanted to have some boots made of our tanned brown elephant hide, which we sent to you. I have to say I am beyond pleased with the results and well worth the wait. They are beautiful, the craftsmanship is excellent, they fit perfect and are extra comfortable---I really like the canvas insert around the ankle.  Please pass on my appreciation to all involved with the end product!! Thank you again and have a great year!!

“Thank you so much for getting my ostrich boots to me on time. They fit great and I am very happy with your custom work. Thank you for your wonderful work.”

“We just received the three pair of boots and shoes you made from our Cape Buffalo hide and we wanted to tell you how pleased we were with the fit and quality of workmanship. My wife in particular was delighted with her shoes as these were the first shoes made to measure she had ever had. I have had Russell boots for the last thirty years and imagine that my new Birdshooters will last me at least that long. Thanks again.”

“It was in the late 70’s that I purchased my first pair of Russell’s -- a standard chukka that was the most comfortable shoe I had ever worn. Some years later I learned about your custom service. To date, I have purchased seven additional pairs and am anxiously awaiting my next pair, Art Carter Traveling Sportsman made from my elephant hide.”

“Our Cape Buffalo and Zebra Chukkas arrived late yesterday afternoon. We both love them. They fit like they were made for us!! Thank you so much. I’m sorry I was bugging you... but we were both very excited. We’ve never had anything like them before! We’ll certainly do business with you again. Thank you.
