Pea Coats, camo, military patterns, accessories and unfortunately "cargos" have always found their way into our closets. Even though the obsession may have started with a fascination for the rugged materials that were used in production: style is first and foremost about utility and so is the military. Along with quality and utility, durability is also essential when it comes to the front lines; and so with the onset of World War I, Hunter was given a call by the British government demanding that the Allied soldiers be supplied with the boots. Hunter answered the call and the Allies won the war.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise that when World War II was upon us, Hunter again responded to the call and shipped more boots to the front lines, and the Allies again won the war. Now I’m not trying to start an international controversy by saying that it was the boots that won the war, but we all know things are a lot easier when we don’t have to worry about our feet being cold and wet. In other words, whether they’re called on to protect the wearer from water, mud, or just plain old nasty weather, Hunter boots will answer the call.
From the fall rains to the winter blizzards, I know I’ll be reaching for these boots in the upcoming months. However, even on a dry day like today with my layers on and trousers tucked in (clean hems and such), my trusty boots are perfect for catching dinner.
With a mild chill in the air and the sun casting rays and flare, my feet are sure to never slip on morning dew, leaving my arms steady and my aim true. Always nice to have a couple bucks set aside for dinner.
