We've redesigned out leather sole Stockman to fit the demands of cattlemen who sped as much time, or more, on the ground as on the back of a horse. We've taken some weight out of our Stockman without gutting the boot. We've eliminated the midsole which makes the boot less heavy and the ousolde more flexible from the start. We're still using premium butyl outsoles which stand up to livestock acids. We think this design fits the void that some cattlemen are looking for.
