Using the super high quality Horween Chromexel hide with rough side out means you can rest assured you have a pair of boots with the very best quality utility footwear leather available in the world.
Many will also remember seeing Steve McQueen in his famous role as Virgil Hilts in The Great Escape wearing the M-43 service shoe.
