Hoggs Country Footwear
The high performance full-grain waxy leather used for the Glenbeg shoe, Glengarry shoe and Glencarse boot provides a good barrier to water yet remains fully breathable. Salt lines and most other stains can be wiped off and there will be a high resistance to alkalis and mineral acids so long as the uppers are maintained with a good wax treatment, like Hoggs H-Wax Leather Proofing. Other features include welted construction with a middle-ply sole (which allows re-soling) plus leather insoles and linings. All styles are wide fitting and are available in full and half sizes unless otherwise stated. All Hoggs of Fife Bench-made Goodyear welted footwear, such as the Banbury market boot, the Ayr market boot, the Carnoustie brogues, the Ashford market boot or the Stirling brogues can be resoled and refurbished thereby offering years of comfortable service; truly, such superior footwear should be regarded as a wise investment. The Roxburgh shoe, Atholl pull-on boot and Rannoch lace-up boot are all bench-made veldtschoens. They incorporate waterproof leather uppers, leather linings and insoles, stout double leather or commando rubber soles and additional waterproof mid-ply and double stitching at the most vulnerable points.
