760 Turbo |
John decided that after providing stylish and sturdy style for 20 years, The 240 Wagon series needed an upgrade. Drawing inspiration from the reliable Volvo 760 he bought for his young family many years ago, John focused on the boxy and geometrical design of the inter-cooled turbo automobile. This style was named after the 1930s Svenska Flygmotor AB** which was the engine of single-engine propeller aircrafts, mainly used by the Swedish Airforce in the 1950s.
Using the same tough Atlas leathers from the 240s, oversized zippers, a square toed last for a wider foot, and 100% vulcanized rubber soles, The Svenska is an all-purpose ankle boot excellent on ice, snow, and slush. The 760 Turbo F-Sole even retains heat - if left in a warm dry area overnight, they'll give you hours of toasty toes in the winter (don't get us wrong, they're wonderful in milder climates as well). These re-soleable, tough shoes will cover many miles for many years to come.

The boot is SUPER comfortable and easy to wear. Cut a bit shallow, but not uncomfortable in the least.

I've been looking at these boots for some time now. With two pairs of Fluevog shoes in my life I needed some boots.
I love the change to the squared toe and that was the real selling point for me. They are very comfortable even just a day later of wearing them around everywhere. I usually wear a 12 and ended up with an 11 in these boots.
They look and feel awesome. Can't recommend these boots enough. And I love the fact they can be resoled!

I'm very please with those boots. It's been 2 months in winter and love them.
They keep me warm enough and easy to clean.
