Turtleskin® ThornArmor™ Safari PH
Russell’s Turtleskin ThornArmor “PH” has been improved. Some of our customers reported that the ThornArmor we use to line the boots was chaffing their ankles so we are now lining the uppers of the boot with super soft deerskin for comfort. Russell designed the Turtleskin ThornArmor “PH” in 2005 to prevent thorns from penetrating hunter’s boots. We’ve been there and had thorns totally penetrate not only the sole of a safari boot but the entire boot! When Turtleskin was introduced in 2004, Russell recognized it as a viable thorn penetration barrier that could be used in our footwear. The Turtleskin ThornArmor “PH” was extensively tested in Africa and proved to turn the nastiest African thorns. Made from tan waterproof WeatherTuff leather with triple vamp construction. Its flat Huez sole and cushioned crepe wedge midsole, is ideal for walking in soft sandy terrain. The thin ThornArmor layer that totally surrounds the foot, top, bottom and sides does add stiffness to the boot, thus the addition of soft deerskin lining. We heard you! You should break the boots in gradually for at least two weeks prior to your hunt. Note: This boot will take more time to be broken in.
