You’re with Me, Leather

A favorite amongst the hunters and fishermen of Juneau, Alaska, these Xtratuf Neoprene Pac boots, $94.00, are proudly Made in the USA.

A more affordable option from Servus, the Northerner Max Boot, $29.95, Made in the USA. You may see these on the feet of Vanilla Bicycles’ pit crew.

Before they made cell phones, Finland’s Nokia was most famous for their rubber boots. They’ve since sold the company and changed the name (Nokian, now).

The Rolls-Royce of wellies, France’s Le Chameau Chasseur Rubber Boot, $389.95, Fabrique en France, is lined with full-grain leather.

    I’ve desperately been seeking a pair of Nokia wellies for some time. I didn’t know they’d sold the company! I’ll look for some for you in Finland, next time I go. Better yet, meet you there!
