Good-fitting Footwear. Heschung High Cut Gentleman's Shoe

28312 Heschung High Cut Gentleman's Shoe

A good fit and a great deal of toughness characterize this shoe. It is made by the French company of Eugène Heschung, which with its workshops still in Alsace goes back to the year 1934. The high cut shoe is double-stitched with a doublestrong cowhide midsole. The Vibram® rubber outsole is very well off-road-capable, and despite its enormous thickness of 2.2 mm, the mixed-tanned calfskin with high fat content is supple and weather-resistant. What immediately catches the eye is the continuous, all-encompassing ankle strap guided through leather straps with a metal buckle, which allows for adjustment of the shaft end at the ankle, crucial to a good fit.

Riess Enamel Whistling Kettle. No electronic peeping necessary

A certain amount of geometric thinking, concerning optimal shape and heat conduction, went into this water boiler and tea kettle in one. The point is to heat up the water quickly, and dissipate that heat as slowly as possible. A little physics that goes a long way. As a result the “old fashioned” kettle uses less energy than an electric water boiler. Oh, yes it whistles when the water has boiled, Followed shortly thereafter by tea-time.
