Russell's South 40 Bird Shooter® was designed specifically for Upland Bird Shooters who need all the help they can get in the way of comfort, support and protection. The concept for this boot came directly from a group of avid South Dakota pheasant hunters and loyal Russell moccasin customers; thus the name, the South 40 Bird Shooter®.
The South 40 Bird Shooter® has double vamp construction plus a hand molded outer sole to which a midsole is attached, and then the molded sole and midsole are cemented and stitched to the side of the moccasin foot, making it extremely difficult for moisture to penetrate the lower portion of the boot. The molded sole offers additional support and protection, and gives you a triple vamp boot.
Weather TuffTM is a full grain leather with a feather light density. It presents an impenetrable barrier to water, remaining fully breathable to pass perspiration even after total immersion. Ultra low water absorption assures the boot will retain its light weight when hunting in low wet areas. Soles are lightweight but rugged Vibram Huez, with addition of foam midsole and arch supporting wedge cushion in the foot and heel. A pair size 8 weighs 3 lbs. The 9" height offers excellent leg and ankle protection. If hunting in hilly areas or have a tendency to walk heels over, we recommend boot be ordered with heel counters.
Our Double moccasin and Triple vamp boots run long. We suggest
ordering 1/2 size shorter than normal length when ordering from stock.
