The Cortina is a high boot that just pops out wherever you go whether walking in the city or around the ski resort. What makes it pop out is full length exterior black/white cowhide (PDV) with full length of red laces. There is black leather around the toe area and on a strip up the back of the boot. An inside zipper makes the Cortina very easy to put on and laces make the fit highly adjustable. The boot is fully leather lined and has a flexible vibram type rubber sole made from welt construction. Model is available in full sizes and tends to fit small.
