The Balsam Chukka is modeled after a traditional moccasin. It gives your feet the room and flexibility to move as they were intended; no stiff sole and tight toe box to hold you back. These are a major departure from our sneakers, a totally different style and intention, but a compliment. Designed for getting shit done, adventuring, relaxing and living. We discovered that these are actually the perfect shoe for exploring the mountains. You can feel every stone and root beneath your feet, and after you get used to the feeling of the earth beneath you, you feel connected with nature, more sure footed and strong. Your moccasins should fit snug at first, and they will stretch and form to your foot with wear. Natural crepe rubber sole, triple stitched to the upper. Natural veg tan insole. These fit true to size. Comes in our canvas shoe bag.
The Balsam Chukka ships 4 weeks from order date.
If you were a barefooted hippie in the 70's, or wished you were one still, these shoes are for you!
Handmade moccasins like we used to wear in the early 70's, only these have better craftsmanship and crepe rubber soles. Made by real people with names like Justin himself, as opposed to mass produced shoes factory made by faceless low paid labor in third world countries. These chukkas look good, feel good and are ethically sustainable.
