Russell Moccasin has been handmaking shoes and boots out of Berlin, Wisconsin for over a hundred years now (est 1898). That’s history. These guys are the real deal. I found these and had to pick them up. I’m a nerd for vintage goods. I love that an object has a unique story all it’s own before I get my hands on it. I’m not exactly sure how old these are, but I believe them to be fairly old. There’s a serial number on it, so I’ve been meaning to contact Russell to see if they can tell me. Anyhow, I’ve admired Russell’s chukkas for a while and am a happy camper that I picked these up.
