The Packboot – for all weathers.
Originally designed for wear during the hard North American winter, the packboot is well suited for every sort of winter operation – not only for when you’re out of doors in the wet, wind and slush all day, but just as good for walking the dog. It’s become pretty popular - but most manufacturers offer it in a high-tech (we’d say ‘high-synthetic’!) version imported from the Far East. Our all-weather packboot, on the other hand, is made of natural materials only, and comes from South Germany, where it is hand-made. The foot is of natural rubber lined with cotton mesh, and the leg is of sturdy, waxed, oiled canvas. The shaped foot will give both ladies and gentlemen a good, firm feel in bad outdoor conditions, and the characteristic front lacing allows optimal calf-shape adjustment. The removable thick inner sole is of pure wool felt and acts like an ‘air conditioner’ for the foot, warming or cooling it according to outside temperature.
The boot is very generously cut: please therefore order one size smaller than usual.
Wash with cold water, and grease the shaft (leg) and seams from time to time.
