Natural Roughout Chromexcel®, or Marine Field Shoe as it is tagged in the Horween® factory, was developed for Marine Field boots for Wold War II. The leather is Horween's Natural Chromexcel, but is designed to be used rough side out, so special attention is given to create a particularly durable and level knap. Left unlined, the interior of the boots is the same, Natural CXL that we use on our Natural Trench Boots, providing a smooth contact with the foot. This particularly smooth interior was designed so that sand could easily be removed when soldiers would up-end their boots in the desert fields of North Africa - greatly reducing blisters and increasing comfort.

Crafted with the Dainite outsoles and heels. Provide comfort and grip for all weather conditions while not attracting or storing dirt. Soles are easily wiped clean. Maintain timeless styling and are as practical today as they were when introduced in 1894.

Built on the Lakeshore Last. Crafted to fit with precision, the Lakeshore Last provides durability and distinction.

Our Goodyear Welted footwear runs very true-to-size. If you measure as a 9.5 on a Brannock device for example, we suggest you purchase a 9.5. We recommend a snug fit as the shoe will stretch to conform to your foot
