The history of Lundhags
In 1932 the Swedish shoemaker Jonas Lundhag created the first pair of the now famous Lundhags Shell boots. He started manufacturing the Lundhags Boots in a small workshop outside Östersund in the region of Jämtland. His sense of uncompromising quality and function, combined with the useful and practical design made the Lundhags Boots so popular. Today Lundhags Boots are made from modern materials crafted by artisans in the traditional manner.
The principle of the Lundhags Boots
The principle of the Lundhags Boots is both ingenious and simple. The shoes do not have a fixed sewn in (Gore-tex-) lining like common hiking boots, you have to choose and build the lining of your boots according to the requirements by combining various pairs of socks. So you can easily adjust the Lundhags Boot to the current temperature and weather situation, also a wet Lundhags shoe dries much faster than a traditional hiking boot by just changing socks.
