RCMP Strathcona
High-Brown Boots

I have long admired how these boots look on RCMP officers. The boots are dressy and professional-looking. I finally arranged to buy a pair of these boots in 2015. These boots are made by Alberta Boot Company of Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The boots are custom-made for me at 17.25 inches (44cm) high. They are made from heavy duty cowhide in a 6.5-8 oz leather. They have a full cowhide leather lining of 2.5-3oz.

The sole was supposed to be Vibram, but came in full smooth leather. I will have to have Vibram soles added myself later, because the leather soles slip like crazy when walking in them. Definitely unsuitable for wear when riding a motorcycle.

The boots have a large Bal-laced front lacing adjustment, which I found out personally is critical to a good fit. Note: the ladder-lacing technique shown here is not the way these boots should be tied, according to a Moutie who provided feedback to me. They are supposed to be tied with one lace. I choose to violate the lacing pattern because a mid-tied ladder lace makes these boots easier to pull on, tie up, and remove at the end of the day. The top closure is a laced gusset.

While I provided what I thought to be accurate measurements when I ordered them, the boots did not fit when they arrived and I had to send them back. The boots were courtesly re-made, and they now fit. After break-in and wear, they fit fine. These boots must be worn with breeches.

Unfortunately, the insole is hard, but a thin insole helps with comfort.
