Originally designed in 1963 for former Red Sox left fielder, one of the greatest hitters of all time, Ted Williams, the ‘SuperSetter’ as it was known was a unique sports boot which combined racing green Australian kangaroo hide leather, a Scottish zug leather vamp, an English overlay pac toe, German speed laces, Norwegian reverse water-repellent welting and Swiss Vibram lug soles. Sold exclusively through Sears with its own Williams branded box, a well-travelled boot indeed. This updated version, the Kangatan 8180, features a Traction Tred outsole, Goodyear Welt construction and green Kangatan Portage leather. Available soon online and instore.
