At this point, there may be more classic American boot brands than there are American feet. We can’t help but wonder what they’re wearing in the Alps, if only for variety’s sake.

What they’re wearing is pretty handsome, if these Seil Marschall “Mont Blanc” boots are any indication. They’re hiking boots not work boots, so you’ll skip the steel toe and make do with a lighter rubber sole, but they should hold up against wintry mix just fine.

And if you need a lingering touch of Americana, look at the grain on the upper—that’s bison leather, collected and tanned stateside.
