Superior Short Hunt Boots
The Superior Short Hunt Boot, a variation on the Maine Guide Boot platform, incorporates an aggressive forward-pointing collar derived from 1920s American hunt boots and exquisite leather tab eyelets- originally designed to anchor boots to snow shoes. These specialized boots are made from Horween’s Chromexcel leather tanned in the U.S.A. The Chromexcel leather used on the boots is particularly suitable for moccasin construction footwear as a result of the unique double tanning process (a combination of chrome tanning and vegetable tanning) that produces luxurious malleable pull-up leather with rich, pleasantly aromatic liquor notes. Scotch-grain leathers contrast the smooth vamp, plug and shaft pieces and draw attention to the finishing touches and subtle details that make this hand-lasted boot unique.
A Vibram Christy sole complements the dense eight layers of rubber and leather underfoot. Our distinctive midsole component, constructed from composition rubber and 100% vegetable-tanned leather which has been air-dried in a 90-day process, is Goodyear-stitched together before being directly stitched to the vamp leather. Steel shank reinforcements increase fitting in the arch and heel, forming a stable bridge between the heel and ball of the owner's foot which causes weight to be distributed more evenly across the foot and reduces foot fatigue. Our Yuketen signature tucks and full leather insoles are also made from 100% vegetable-tanned leather and will naturally accommodate the distinct shape of the wearer’s foot over time. The result is a shoe that will cradle its owner's foot, providing immeasurable comfort over a long trek.
