Russell Moccasin have been making outstanding footwear since 1898. Based in Berlin, Wisconsin, the factory specialises in customised boots and shoes, offering over 100 different leathers including waterproofed cowhide, bison and alligator, 24 different sole options as well allowing tweaks in fit and colour; All in all, a process that can take up to 20 weeks to complete. If you’ve ever see their tear-inducing motorcycle boots or ‘Bird Shooters’ you’ll know it’ll be well worth the wait. Nick Horween of Horween Leathers, more than handy with a camera, takes a tour around the factory. Head to the gallery for more.
