John Calden Boots Mountain Lite Boot
Same great design and features as the Mountain Hiking Boot but a lighter weight and flex, and 5mm rubber midsoles.
I use a full grain leather on all my Mountain Footwear. (made with smooth - top grain - out or the rough side out) (6/7 or 7/8 oz.) (3 or 4mm).
Leather insoles (this is the foundation of the boot - real leather works the best).
Inside leather heel counters (longer wear and holds the shape the best).
Handmade box toes to keep toe area solid.
A simple padded tongue is used on the leather bellows closure. (optional inside double tongue available" "Calder Fit System" ™).
Custom fitted close cell foam is used for the ankle area.
I use a heavy nylon thread for all my stitching (I use two rows of stitching and I double stitch in some areas).
