Wishful Shoppping - Russell Chukkas
Russell Moccasin is one of the first US brands I rediscovered via Japanese web shops. In the mid-oughts, I used to wishfully shop for Japan only, Russell special make ups. My favorite models were those which paired a Fishing Oxford upper with a sturdy hunting or workwear tread. By comparison, I was uninspired by Russell's domestic print catalog featured school yearbook quality photographs and confusing print lists of of pricing and leather selections. Here is a pair of Russell Chukkas that caught my eye from the Japanese shop MAPS. In addition to the Chukkas, I love the detailed product snaps and the sockless model.
