    Have wanted a custom pair of Russell's minimalist boots for years. Perhaps 2021 is finally the time to make the drive up to Berlin... Wisconsin.

    I have the Thula Thula in kangaroo leather, which is quite nice. For everyday wear, the Art Carter's in French Veal are wonderful.

    Any pics? For all their steady century of business, there seems to be very few online images of Russell mocs in the wild.

    Super cool. Love that they go by word of mouth and let their worksmanship do all the advertisement for them. Will take that tip into account and will most definitely order a pair from them in the future. Love to support people/business such as this.

    These are my kangaroo Thula Thula's...one of their most versatile boots for working around the property. For rugged mountain stuff, I have Grand Slam Sheep Hunters in bison. For going to town, the Art Carter's. I have a friend who was a hunting/fishing outfitter and brutalized his gear. He still wears Russells that are 50+ years old. For the past 30 years, except for dress, I wear nothing but Russell's. The moccasin construction molds to your foot like nothing else. Only problem with them is that they are not conducive to orthotics.

    @Jin431, here's leather industry piece on Russell Moccasin, if you're curious. They are famous within the Midwest among hikers, hunters, birdwatchers, wildlife photographers, etc. Russells became so popular in Japan though that even before Covid average wait times were something like five months?

    I didn't know that C&J made also a "long-wing" version of their brogue.
    I love how different brands have a different configuration of their medaillon cap toe.

    New to me Natural CXL Adidas Stan Smiths. First time trying out natural leather so I'm curious to see if I will like them over time

    Don’t forget about Yuketen and Quoddy. I’ve got a pair of quoddy Mocs that I love. I wore Clark’s desert boots all through college until I found these fine Maine shoemakers.

    My first pair of engineers. Wesco Mr. Lou in natural Horween Essex. Got them used for a very good price and they fit great without a chance to try them on.
    They are used so I gave them a good cleaning with saddle soap and conditioned them. I'm looking forward for a little more patina and a litte darker colour. Maybe another rabbit hole... 20210421_181545.jpg

    Loving the RM Williams Chelsea boots I got from @JCSD. The leather soles are slippery but it's not so bad on pavement. I'm for sure getting a black pair later, these boots are so comfy to wear.

    I think so too. Sleek/comfy and the leather is supple too. Thanks @Monitor
