Men’s Heschung High Cut Calf Leather and Cotton Shoe
For men and women. Ankle boots.
This is the civilian form of the traditional French hunting boot. Starting at ankle height, the sides are made from strong, waxed cotton (color: olive-brown), making the boot easier to put on, preventing constriction at the ankles, and guaranteeing foot support and water resistance up to the ankle. Besides that, it’s a Heschung like all others: double-stitched from mixed-tanned calfskin, with an enormous thickness of 2.2 mm. Due to the high fat content of 17%, the leather is supple, robust and water resistant.
Chaussures Heschung. Double-stitched Shoes from France.
Eugène Heschung set up his first workshops in Alsace in 1934 and specialized from the very beginning in hiking and hunting shoes. His motto: a good walking shoe should be comfortable, weather-resistant and indestructible. The double stitching is done by machine on the traditional model of hand-welt stitching – in this way the welt is pressed outwards before the sole is put on, to give the shoe its characteristic appearance. The double-stiched Blucher shares its first class design with other models from Heschung: the lining is out of mixed tanned calfskin; the lace-up loops are of stainless steel and are hidden from the left side; the dust tongue is lightly padded; inverted pleats out of fine soft leather on the dust tongue make it impermeable; the inner sole is also made from tanned calf or cowhide; the joint spring is out of ash or beech tree; the filling out of pure latex; the profile sole, out of abrasion resistant rubber, is sewn through, a rarity these days.
