We have taken one of Russell's classic styles and added 10.10 oz. Martexin original wax army duck to the quarters. The wax army duck gives it a great look and the water repellent finish provides a firm yet supple hand with exceptional water repellency. The leather is our fleshy leather from SB Foot Tanning. It is an oil tanned leather produced from quality USA steer hides. The oiled surface lubricates the fiber structure for footwear flexibility and function. A light brushing and application of Obenauf will maintain look and performance of your Russell boots. Double Vamp construction for added water protection. Sole is Vibram Line Lite, which is light weight and provides a great soft step.
