At Huckberry, we’ve been working with Rancourt for many years, and per tradition, we’ve got a new, exclusive boot fresh out of their Maine workshop just in time for the leaves to change. The Brunswick boot is named after the small town north of Portland where the local neighborhood kids are born with skis on their feet and hockey skates draped over their shoulders—needless to say, it’s a gorgeous part of the state that relishes in winter conditions. Built to endure years of harsh winters and outdoor exploration, the Brunswick Boot embodies the spirit of Maine through and through.
The uppers of this Brunswick Boot are cut from an American-made Chromexcel leather that’s tanned with bark and then hot stuffed with Horween’s secret blend of natural oils and greases. Once they pass the leather to Rancourt, their skilled shoemakers make each boot by hand, including cutting the leather, forming it to the last and stitching on the extra-cushioned sole. The result is one of the best boots around, one that, with the proper care, you might find yourself handing down to the next generation with pride.
