Ask the Mountie

What's the correct name for your high brown boots?

Dear Mr Mountie

If you answer this question I’ll believe that you are indeed a fellow Mountie. What’s the correct name for your high brown boots?

Hint..They are named after a real British Lord.

Possibly “The Real Mountie”

Dear Possibly

You are of course referring to the Strathcona High-Brown Police Boot, currently manufactured by the Alberta Boot Company, whose other claim to fame is manufacturing the boots Jackie Chan wore in the film “Shanghai Noon”.

The boots are named after Donald Alexander Smith, 1st Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal; Imperialist, Fur Trader and Salmon Fisher, and proud owner of one of the 19th centuries most prodigious beards.

Yours Truly
