Revamping his 240 Wagon series, after providing the stylish and sturdy style for 20 years, John decided an upgrade was necessary and set his mind to redesign an already time-proven shoe family. Reminiscent of the reliable Volvo John bought for his young family many years ago, John sought inspiration in the boxy and geometrically designed Volvo 760 with inter-cooled turbo.
Jan Wilsgaard, head of Volvo's Design and Styling team, proposed over 50 new designs for the new 760 Turbo, employing the long respected credo, "simple is beautiful." Using the same tough waxy leathers from the 240s, a square toed last for a wider foot, and 100% vulcanized rubber soles, the Wilsgaard is an all-purpose boot excellent on ice, snow, and slush. The 760 Turbo F-Sole even retains heat - if left in a warm dry area overnight will give you hours of toasty toes in the winter (but 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.
