Best Boot Around!!!

First boot purchase: the quality is superb, looks even better in person. Feels great, and the leather is incredible. Cannot recommend the backcountry enough! Above all else, the costumer service is excellent. Had some misunderstandings about the build time for the boots, and they squared it off for me right away, even shipped an in stock pair to me that day! Quick service. Shoutout to Chelsea for the great work!

My Favorite Boots

Super comfortable and capable - From the trail to the workplace. As long as Russell keeps doing what they’re doing I’ll never go to a different boot, or shoemaker for that matter. I also own The Oneida for driving, camp and home. Super proud to be an owner of these works of art.

second chances

I tried a pair of big cambos several years ago using the custom measuring option offered by russells. Long story short is that after a rebuild, they still didnt fit correctly. Fast forward to now and I gave russells another shot by ordering a standard width backcounty boot using the option to take a picture of a credit card between your feet for measurement and it recommends a size. I wear a 14 usually, but the app recommended a 13.

I ordered the 13 in the standard (D) width, knowing that it may be a bit wide ( wear a narrow width.
So the boots arrived. Beautiful as expected with the hallmarks of handmade. I tried them on and as expected they were wide, not too bad though, and the length was spot on for me.

I added a VKTRY insole and have been wearing them almost daily. Breaking in all leather boots takes some time but these have been a joy. The leather is soft and forms quickly to the foot.

So overall, I believe Russell is heading in a good direction and I really hope they stay in business for another 100 years. I plan to make these outdoor boots eventually, but they look so good its almost a shame. I am glad I gave them another shot after a rocky first experience.

Best boots I've owned !

After a week's wear, 100km+ walking in many conditions, I can confidently say these are the most comfortable boots I've worn, and the most interesting and effective design for hiking and light trekking applications. The website app worked perfectly for sizing, and the fit is unlike any boot I've worn before, great heel support and hold down, close fitting over the instep and ankle, but very wide at the forefoot. This, combined with the flexible sole, means the foot isn't locked into the boot as with traditional hiking boots. The result is less fatigue, and a boot that can be worn comfortably all day.

The Walnut Timberjack leather is very supple and highly water resistant, and smells amazing. This leather in combination with the construction means the boot is actually waterproof, I wore them in long wet grass and submerged in a stream and no water came through at all. They felt great out of the box but have continued to become more comfortable every day.

They perform great ascending and descending, and even side-hilling, which was a surprise because the shaft is very flexible. It allows you to keep a flat foot on the ground while on uneven terrain, and even engage your foot muscles for grip and purchase. It's very counter-intuitive, but very effective.

The soles are a great all-around choice, grippy but not too thick or aggressive for daily wear. They are lightweight for an all leather boot, they compare favourably to my German all-leather hiking boots, but I would not call this make-up a lightweight boot, more of a medium weight, though they feel lighter when worn. They are fairly cool as well, and the suede-like inner side of the upper leather absorbs moisture well and the boot breathes nicely.

All in all I'm delighted with these boots, and very happy with the communication and customer service, and had zero hassles ordering internationally. Thanks to the team at Russell Moccasins, I think they are doing a great job in ensuring the reputation of an all-time classic boot.

Even I am surprised

I have tried all the best brands from the PNW companies. These blow them away. I have never felt leather like this. Baby's butts are now second to this leather. I can't get over the quality and build of this boot. The leather molds to your foot. The feel underfoot is perfect. I wish I could put better words to this review. I know they are not cheap. I have spent more on my PNW collection and now I don't wear them. I have finally found my forever boot. Sorry it took so long to find this company. saw them on a Youtube video by accident. Thank the maker.
