    Heschung is one of the few French firms of quality to continue to produce or offer ready-to-wear shoes made in France. The others are Charvet, Weston, Corthay, Fenestrier, Vaneau but, against the convention wisdom, not Aubercy or Berluti.) The present shoe, which seems to be perpetually out of stock, is a robust, finely made, all weather, all terrain, masterwork which features true double sewn Norwegian (Goiser) welting as well as a 360 degree Storm Welt. The Goiser (or true Norwegian) constructions sets this handsome shoe apart from Heschung’s more commonly seen production and not to be compared to the lesser offerings on-line by myriad resellers.

    This type of construction is derived from traditional hand sewn mountain and sky boots and promises comfort even in long periods of use. Heschung’s proprietary full rubber sole is Goodyear welted but the Storm Welt is hand sewn. Of course the Norwegian construction afford maximum protection against, rain, slush or snow but this is also a wonderfully practical fair weather boot for town or country, on paved or the most challenging unpaved surface.

    An approximately Euro 700 item in its day. To find an example in this lightly worn and all original condition is indeed fortunate.
