Willis & Geiger was once an iconic American brand, on par with the likes of Abercrombie & Fitch. Benjamin Willis actually designed the clothing for Abercrombie & Fitch that outfitted Teddy Roosevelt. The clothing line was a favorite among adventurers and explorers. Ernest Hemingway designed his own bush jacket made by Willis & Geiger. The company was sold to Lands End in the 80's, who liquidated them in the late 90's. These Willis and Geiger chukka styled ankle boots feature ghillie laces and Vibram Gumlite soles. We generally don't like to throw the word "rare" around, but these boots warrant the title. The boots are constructed of premium leather and embody the true essence of Willis & Geiger. These boots were made in Canada, so they can be dated to the 1980's (the older pieces were made in the USA).
