I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for what I believe is the most important part of a good/successful safari.... The boots you choose to wear! We trekked for four and a half days before I was able to seal the deal. Each day was around 7 to 8 hours walking and stalking. After that first harvest, we continued to hunt for another ten days filling all my tags. The most comfortable hunting footwear I have ever owned! Thank you for such a great product!!
I’ve been on the Russell’s for about a decade. This is my third pair of ph. I’m extremely hard on boots, everyday wear ranching desert mountains. Ive got 1 year and 1500+ miles out of this current pair and they pretty much need rebuild. In the past my phs would last me good but not this good. The new team at Russell is on point, craftsmanship is masterpiece quality now. Thank you Russell for giving the people what they want A++. I wear a 9.5-10D in all regular shoes/boots in Russell I wear 8.5/9E if that helps anyone.
Technically this review is for the new 40 bird shooter, not the Safari PH. I actually received the wrong boot. I received a safari in the mail(not a PH). While I was sending the safari boot back, I spoke will Lori in sales and I asked if I could actually get the new 40 bird shooter instead of the original safari PH I ordered. The bird shooter just came out on the site and I fell in love. Lori was super helpful and got me squared away. I paid the difference for the 40 bird, she sent me the boots.
Let me tell you. Amazing. I’ve accumulated 13 miles already in them, in three separate hikes. They are well build, sturdy, unbelievably comfortable and incredibly silent. I didn’t realize they were going to be so quiet. That’s an aspect I wasn’t asking for and not expecting. I’m talking ninja-quiet… Almost zero break in. I’ve never had a boot where it’s comfortable to wear on tile, concrete, grass, sandy soil. These are comfy everywhere so far… I’ve put them to the test and gone up and down hills over and over they are so protective to my feet. I actually use them as a way to work out in them. I LOVE them!!!
I am now going to save up and buy the Safari PH. When I received the Safari in the mail I got to test out what the canvas feels like and I really really loved that for hotter climates. So now I’m hooked. I am trying to also find a pair for my wife as well.
Thank you, Lori. Also, thank you Russell Moccasin boot crafters. Thank you to the new CEO. This was an amazing purchase for me. Worth every penny.
Thanks for your review Isaac! We are incredibly honored that you are enjoying your boots so much and look forward to serving you more in the future! All the best friend!
