Russell Double Vamp Professional Hunter
W.C. Russell Moccasin
The outside molded sole was originally specified to provide added side to side support and foot stabilization and to provide another layer of leather under foot for walking comfort.
Russell designed a shoe without the outside molded sole but built it with a double vamp of leather, (meaning a second layer of leather wraps completely around the foot). The double vamp construction provides the extra foot support and stabilization to firmly support the foot plus provides an extra layer of leather under foot for comfort for long treks.
The boot was made in green waterproofed WeatherTuff® Leather with brown cotton duck uppers. It features a Poron slipsole, a technical foam layer built in between the two layers of leather on the bottom of the shoe for improved walking comfort. Poron will not compress as less costly foam inserts do so the protection and comfort will always be there. Back pull straps were added to ease pulling the boots on, brass lacing studs in the top three eyelets for quick lacing, a padded cushion collar top for comfort around the ankle. The sole is a tough Vibram® Air Bob sole that features a mildly aggressive tread pattern but is still super quiet. All seams on the bottom of the boot are sealed with Water-Loc tape for improved water resistance.
