Alfred Sargent

Navvy Cut, Cap-Toe, Field Boot

True Veldtschoen Construction

Swiss "Vitamin SS" All-Weather, All Terrain Sole

Euro 440

Dieser Schuh ist ein 9-Ösen „Navvy Cut“ Stiefel in feinstem "full grain oiled calfskin" und ist ausgestattet mit einer Veldtschoen-genähten "Vitamin SS" (Swiss) Gummi-Sohle und Absatz. Garantiert die eleganteste Erscheinung am Berg! Stilistisch ist der Stiefel angelehnt an den hochgeknöpften Schuh, den die "Navigational Engineers" (US) oder "Navigators" (UK) um die Jahrhundertwende trugen. Die Struktur dieses ungeheuer gut gearbeiteten Stiefels und die Unterstützung des Fussgelenkes durch die hohe Form gibt, wie kaum ein anderer Schuh, ein Gefühl der Stabilität im Stehen und im Gehen. Dieser ausserordentlich haltbare, gutaussehende, und äusserst seltene Stiefel ist ein unerlässlicher Schuh für "Town or Country".....geeignet für Ihre "Landausstattung", doch genauso hervorragend passend für die Stadt. Nebenbei schützen Sie so auch Ihre besten Ledersohlen-Schuhe vor Abnutzung und Zerstörung! Jede klug gestaltete Garderobe eines Gentleman sollte wenigstens ein Paar dieser Schuhe aufweisen, um für einen Ausflug auf's Land, bei jedem Wetter, gerüstet zu sein.

Versandkosten: Käufer zahlt, auf Grund des Gewichtes, EUR 6,20 Versandkosten als versichertes Paket (innerhalb Deutschlands). Versand ohne Schuhspanner.

Navvy Cut, Cap-Toe, Field Boot

True Veldtschoen Construction

Swiss "Vitamin SS" All-Weather, All Terrain Sole

Euro 440

This exceptionally sturdy boot is a stylistic throw-back to the Navvy Boot worn by Civil Engineers, Canal and Railroad workers at the turn of the century and before and by officers in the Great War and throughout the century. This handsome boot is the particularly well made and boasts the today exceedingly rare Veldtschoen construction. The 9-Eyelet high-top construction give a sense of stability, standing or walking, that few other shoes or boots provide. The full grain oiled calfskin, the water-repellant Veldtschoen construction and the full-height gusset under the lacing will keep you dry in almost every environment, and the Swiss-made "Vitamin SS" medium profile sole will take you comfortably over hill and dale, not to mention pavement and job-site.  Go to John Lobb's website "Catalogue" page to see similar examples of this traditional style. This is ideal footwear for the outdoors in any season and every gentleman should have at least one rugged boot to depend upon in rough weather or terrain. Guaranteed to get you out of tough situations in exotic locations. While this massive boot is certainly suitable for the most challenging off-road duty -a ideal shoe for shooting, trekking or climbing- the oiled leather is, nevertheless, remarkably comfortable. However long it waits in your dressing room before you are called away to Timbuktu or Kilimanjaro, the day will come when it will be indispensible. Prepare now!

Size: US 12D.....UK11E.....Continental 46D, for the medium width foot. 

Condition: The original leather sole has newly been reinforced with a massive rubber sole and heel (unused).    

VELDTSCHOEN CONSTRUCTION: In terms of construction, the present shoe is one of the most complex, robust and durable of all shoes and an improvement on the Goodyear welt, while allowing the same easy repair. The Veldtschoen construction, while similar to the true Norwegian or Goiser construction in that all have the uppers turned out and sewn to the out-sole, has, in most cases, the addition of a full welt between the uppers and the out-sole -notice the 2 rows of stitching in picture 8- all of this intended to repel water. The Norwegian lacks a welt and is sewn directly to the outsole. Veldtschoen constructed shoes are often further distinguished by a bellows tongue, another waterproofing measure. The construction of this shoe allows for the easy replacement of the sole but replacement is academic; you cannot wear out this sole. As useful in cold and wet as it is for your summer excursions in the countryside, this shoe will serve you faithfully like few others. My old clients know what I mean when I say, "My highest personal recommendation on this shoe."
