Boot Thread 5: Future Days editionPost bootsDiscuss bootsNever skip leg day
>>16550514I haven't heard much about people having issues with the elastic overstretching. Go for it, or look into Thursday. They're the only brand that would be as cheap.>>16550476Red Wing factory secondsMeerminthat's really it at that price point
Do these Alden chukkas look like retard shoes to anyone else? I'm looking for a smart casual boot the welt on these looks too wide
>>16550680Here's what I mean
im getting docs and you cant convince me not to. nappa leather or greasy tho?
>>16550691fucker the thread died
>>16550680The welt looks fine, but I’m not a fan of the design in general. The height feels too low and I find the stitching around the quarter ugly.
>>16550729Are you standing on your heels or are do Aldens really have that much toe curl?
>>16550729looks kino enough to me>>16550760>youyikes...
What's a good boot style that would be good for both work and causal situations?
>>16550794don't think the facings are supposed to touch
>>16550794They seem a bit too over the top for me, I was thinking something that was a bit more dress shoe looking but with work shoe soles. Also black, since brown would standout too much at work.
>>16550786wow thats an ugly jacket
Anybody familiar with Selected Homme? Thinking about copping their pic related boot
>>16550810Looks like a fake welt
>>16550686Venom-Snake tier>>16550842Cant really see much with this lighting. Also the laces are often so long on combat boots like this so you can wrap it around your ankle and tuck it in to the boot, just look it up on google
>>16550521> size X: perfect width, too much room in front of my toes> anything smaller than X: too narrowHow do you deal with it?
>>16551061either hope it stretches, buy in E width if available or maybe the last is just not for you and look into something different. I have this exact same problem with iron rangers.
>>16551061buy wider shoes.
>>16550962Sorry! Here's in a better light!>Also the laces are often so long on combat boots like this so you can wrap it around your ankle and tuck it in to the boot, just look it up on googleI know you can tuck them in and my boyfriend tells me to do so all the time, but I like them this way more~
Starting to darken up a bit. Kinda embarrassed I was considering sending them back or selling them yesterday. Had to look at day 1 pics to see just how much more carmel-y they've gotten.
>>16550810 This style features hiker style lace hooks and stitching detail for a military inspired look you can pair with anything from jeans to chinos.- Round toe- Lace hooks- Stitching detail- Slim sole- Texture treadInner: 100% Cow Leather; Insole: 100% Cow Leather; Upper: 100% Cow Leather; Sole: 85% Tunit, 15% Thermoplastic Rubbersounds like a fake welt but real mystery meat leather and cobbled in Portugal I mean you could do worse. likely fine if you're skint but dont expect 10 yearsalso loling at thisDo not washDo not bleachDo not tumble dryDo not ironDo not dry clean
>>16550842( 0_0)I recognize that name
>manufacturer has measurement chart to find your size>measure foot width>10.5 in D>they say the boot runs half size large>order exact>it fits exact on left and just marginally close on the right>not tight but snug enough to notice after half a dayfuggggggg it's literally perfect on the left so in not returning them
>>16551538What kind of mongoloid feet do you have? You can always try a shoe stretcher
bought some beat up RM williams chelseas for $50. going to hit with bick 4 and polish then take them to the cobbler, any idea what putting rubber soles on these will cost? anything else I should keep in mind? not expecting too much for the price
>>16550810I had some selected homme boots like 10 years ago and they were trash. They might be better these days of course.>>16551015hobo x danner from 2019 apparently.
>>16551554I'll have you know my feet have no mongol influencethe thought of ordering a shoe stretcher and waiting 2 weeks is painful and I'd rather put money towards rw factory seconds
>>16551620Go talk to your local cobbler and ask if they can stretch out an extra half inch. They should have a heavy duty metal stretcher to put the shoe on for 24-48 hours. Mine charged me $15 and it worked like a charm
>>16551192what boots are those?
>>16551697Brandit Phantom 14 holes!
Opinion time here, boots that don’t serve a greater utility are kinda dumb and aren’t even very comfortable or fashionable. I have boots for work, which I would never wear in public because they’re gross and don’t fit outfits very well. I have boots for hiking and hunting, which actually do look quite nice in the right fit, and then I have regular shoes for most fits. If you’re trying to go for a smart look why not wear a nice pair of boat shoes or loafers instead of clunky clown shoe boots?
>>16551775>nice pair of boat shoes or loaferspoofters pls go
>>16551662>local cobblerwe have shoemakers and I doubt they have stretching machines>>16551775>instead of clunky clown shoe boots?not everything is an American heritage bootalso baot shoes and loafers are for sticcmen
>>16551800>poofter I don’t even know what this means. Honestly most of you faggots will never pull off boots because you look completely out of place wearing boots, you have no tans, you’ve never actually worked in a pair of boots beyond breaking them in around the house. It’s just a bad look unless you actually look the part. Just wear normal shoes.
>>16551805>Boat Shoes and Loafers are s o yThis is an objectively bad take, wrong on so many levels. Wearing a pair of boots in an urban environment is the epitome of s o y.
>>16551817>are s o yson wash the rot out your brainI said it works for men that are skinny bigboi needs big shoes it also comes down to preference. some people dont like being ankesluts. some people like the feeling of taller shoes that hug your ankles
>>16550521Cop these beauts?
>>16551906>broguing>wingtip >medallion >suede
>>16550680I cant tell, they look like grandadcore. waiting for you to come out with a tucked in belted shirt, blazer, and tobacco pipe.
>>16550786everything here is wrong. ugly colors. mixed styles. holy shit, LITERALLY everything. wow, this has got to be a troll pic.
>>16551915What's wrong with wingtips?
>>16550786timid body language for a gaudy outfit innit
>>16551932It's not just the wingtips, the to different leathers is very 2010 #menswear and looks retarded
>>16550521What are some good black combat boots I can get for less than $100?
>>16552002Join the miltary
>>16552002ebay used or milsurp
>>16551943Where? Never seen anyone wear two tone in 27 years.
>>16550680Looks fine to me. Personally I'll never buy Alden ever again. Their quality control is the worst I've ever seen from supposedly high quality bookmaker I got a pair that had abysmal QC so exchanged them and got a replacement boot that had QC problems as well. My wife's 100 dollar Doc Martens had better QC than my 575 dollar Alden's Alden you are paying for the name and that's it. I can not recommend and will not be purchasing from them again. The the same price you get WAAAAY more bang for your buck with Whites (which I also own 2 pairs off so feel I have a somewhat valid opinion)
>>16552018No need, just go to a military base and find the store off base that sells the good boots. When I was in the army you could get the crappy standard issue boots on post or go off post and get the cool "high speed" boots
>>16551932I've been playing around with the new carmina tool all afternoon. Unfortunately they don't let me use the last I want on the model I want. If you're gonna mix leathers I'd go with their balmoral model in pebble or suede
>>16552049Kinda going for that informal look. You think balmorals are suited for that? I'm also considering their Galway copy.
>>16550786Why does "really good" leather like that jacket, look so fucking fake as fuck? That shit looks cheap as hell but its probably a 3k leather jacket.
>>16550794Square ass frankenstein toe
>>16550842Wow its nothing. You suck at pictures.
My boots:Alden 405 Indy, Red Wing 8111Whites MP black CXL, Whites MP brown oiled smooth
>>16551347Clean them with a legit soap that won't darken them dumb dumb. Or use a stronger chem to strip them and lighten them. Youtube and google are your friends. Theres so many idiots online who made posts crying about "ruining" their boots by darkening the hell out of them after applying some random product on them lol.
>>16552099You misunderstand, I don't like them being khaki colored and want them to darken a bit because they look much better dark.
>>16551775Retard boat shoes and loafers are casual as fuck you stupid normy, loafers for loafing boat shoes would look as out of place as boota by your logic moron. If you want to look "smart" you wouldnt wear that lazy slip on shit. You can get all manner of smart casual shoes like derbys etc. Also you've never apparently seen dress boots a la Allen Edmonds. Fucking moron.
>>16552097>>16552100Nice collection. I was considering Whites but ended up getting IRs. Is the quality difference worth double the price?
>>16551817You're a fucking idiot. Fucking new money asian bug person style apparenrly is the altar you worship at. Babbys first FaSHiOn!
>>16551915Literally normal wingtip elements except for the mixed and matched textures. Fucking dumb fuck.
>>16552115I think so, yeah. Of all my shoes, the Red Wings just feel the worst. I don't know how to describe it, there's just something missing from them that the others have. The Whites are built like absolute tanks, the fit is excellent and the quality was too, which is why I got another pair in a different leather. I figured why settle for a boot from another brand that may or may not be better when I already know the MP is a fantastic boot, so I got another so I could mix up colors and fits. The Iron Rangers have a weird fit, they're very wide and they don't do narrow sizes. I'm sure i could have played around with going down sizes and up widths to get it right but why bother? The Iron Rangers feel like an entry level boot and the quality was what I'd expect from a boot in that tier. The Whites are an entirely different beast. I am considering a pair of Nicks but probably Wescos next when the budget allows to see how other PNW boot brands compare because right now the Whites are kingWhites > Alden > Red Wing
>>16552031Lmfao do you not have instagram? Two tone leather is fucking legitimately wish tier, yesstyle typical cheap fuck "sexcore" fit hahaha its below budget posing as fancy like 90% of the time. Pics of that shit are everywhere with fucking eoided middle eastern guys who all look like clones and wear the tightest blandest safest shit and post about yeah style# lmao.
>>16552061You're right the closed lacing makes it on the formal side. You're probably better off with a derby boot unless you go for something like picrel
>>16552144what the fuck
>>16552133>>16552113Okay keep wearing your clown shoe tier Allen Edmonds in public in your skinny jeans lmao
>>16552185Guys you're both gay, mocs are clearly superior to both
>>16552133Asians are the ones LARPing as 50s Americans anyways
>>16552197>americans throw away everything that made them a great country>asians pick up nationalism and pick up where america left offYou sound salty. Just be happy those ideas will live on, even if it's through the bug men
Wanna cop this ones, saw them in the western/cowboy thread and never forgot about them or longlegs
>>16552244Bro I’ve lived in Japan, no one dresses like that. Their laborers look the same as ours do. Wearing good clothes isn’t lost in the west either lmao.
>>16551817see. look at this. big boots on a small frame and it looks wrong>>16550786
>>16552244Sauce on the shoes? Pretty sure they're Alden NST derbies in cordovan but they look dope in that photo
flat laces or round?best way to tie?
>>16552311I like flat 99% of the time
>>16551192How tall are you?
Alright bros, need some boot help.I want something that works for dress and casual. I think this company is known (thursday) for being the reddit company but would these work?
>>16552139I went through the same journey of red wing first then to whites and it's a big jump in quality
>>16552311leather>>16552375if you want to be reddit sure
>>16552385Is there name of the style of these so I can find other companies with similar ones?
>>16552386cap toe service boots
>>16552385Yep, I usually like rawhide laces but depends on the boot. Some look better with flat laces I can't think of any boots that look good with round laces other than Iron Rangers
This is how a proper boot cross section should look
>>16552375What's your budget? Thursday is a brand you settle on and get because you're poor and can't afford better, not a brand you buy because you like them >>16552386Service boots or jumper boots
>>16552405Jumpers have a very tall shaft
Speaking of Alden and speaking of jumper boots, these looks incredible and I have the cash.https://aldenmadison.com/collection/reginajumper/
>>16552404brainlet take that ignores purpose
>>16550680That's a normal goodyear welt for boots.maybe you're just used to blake stitching?
>>16551953German army jungle boots >>16551192>I like them this way more Thought that might've been the case ha.
>>16552458Yeah... I think personally that it looks nice that way, but ofc it's not the super tactical proper way but idc I'm not in a war lol!
>>16552405Probably $300 for boots.I
>>16552308I think you are correct. They must be on the aberdeen last because they look sleek and more dressy than Aldens usually do. The boot version is also quite nice
>>16552550Carlos Santos makes a good looking boot for that price rangehttps://www.thenobleshoe.com/products/carlos-santos-jumper-boot-in-coimbra-patina
>>16551192Nazi piece of shit
>>16551538Not many problems will stretch out as you wear them: it's generally a lot told by sales people. However, something minor like this should stretch out. You can also try removing the built-in insole on the right shoe, or even both.
>>16552578*generally a lie
>>16552578The "they'll stretch out, give them time" meme is absolute bullshit. If they don't fit when you try them on they don't fit. People need to stop throwing money away on things that don't fit that they hate because they don't fit
>>16551563Put shoe trees in them immediately.
>>16552593u bedder not be
>>16552599No, I'm not. If I encountered those, I'd be killed in less than 10 seconds. That's why being called a nazi was funny to me.
>>16552582You should probably read >>16552581
>>16552603ogey srystay leather side up
>>16552610No worries! I just love what those boots look like and people say they look good on me too. Nothing political in that!
>>16552616i want a cat but theyd just piss on my boots and dieor go outside and die and i cant deal with thatthe pissing and the death
>>16552375>>16552385>>16552386>completely disregarding something objectively decent because a stranger on the internet called it 'reddit'
>>16552617This could be a poem... I actually really like this post!
>>16552623i once had a teacher in trade school that loved a poem i wrote for class and said it should be entered in a competitioni drink for sport and have trouble going to supermarkets now :)im gonna stop posting for tonight to avoid getting beat by janny-san
>>16552628I mean that post was unironically poetic in a post-modern way. I believe you have potential. But this isn't poetry but boots thread so bye bye~<3
something just looks wrong with thursdays side profile
>>16552652Heel is too low, makes the boot look like it's falling backwards
>>16552653not sure about falling backwards but the toe is too small and someting is wrong after the heel
Some anon in the last boot thread posted this list, noting that it was their own but they had wide feet, and there are far more options for those with standard feet, which I haveWhat are the other options for service style boots, $200-$400?> This is a list of service-boot-styled boots, however since I have wide feet, it's mainly just brands that offer wide sizes:White's MP (also try Nick's)Viberg service bootDayton service bootHelm zindGrant Stone diesel bootThursday presidentWesco JohannesAllen Edmonds higgins millOak Street field boot: not available in wideParkhurst Allen: not available in wideChippewa Men's 6" Plain-Toe Service Utility Boot 1901M24Also try:Aldenhttps://www.herringshoes.co.ukThorogoodwww.rufflander.co.ukCarlos SantosCarminahttp://www.motostyle.jp/moto/01mens-shoes/2210/2210.html

>>16552584Ordered another set just for these already, good call
>>16552670if duty wouldnt tear me a new asshole id buy some parkhurst>>165526721 from mejkignore opinions and buy anything under 8above 8 requires commitment
>>16552679What kinda commitment?
>>16552680above 8 you have to be going for certain aesthetics imoyou may not want to commit to certain styles of dress but 8 in jeans is perfectly normal imoalso you should ignore my opinionbuy what you likewhen you see it youll know
>>16552652I agree, there's always just been something about their last that is unappealing
Are Chelsea boots decent for the fall & winter time? It only snows a few times a year at most where I live so I'm mostly just concerned with warmth. My only other pairs of boots are some Doc Martens that I don't think work too well if I try to dress up and some CDB's.
I'm breaking in my IR, but how long will the painful process last? One of my feet is getting destroyed
>>16552757RM Williams are really great but expensive. Meermins are good on the cheaper end.
>>16552670I'd also point out that I don't like cap toes, so that list only includes brands that offer plain toes.
>>16552771Those Meermins are nice but I'm not the biggest fan of the soles on them.
>>16552672female (vagina) or female (penis)?
>>16552789Do the rules change depending on whether they have a penis?
>>16552790no but my masturbation habits do
>>16552789I do in fact have a penis.
>>16552764took me probably a week until they were 100% broken in and never hurt again
>>16552764Take days off if you have to and wear thick socks. I just broke a pair in. After about 3 wears they felt less snug and more comfy around my feet. A few more after that and the insoles have started to form to the bottom of my feet. It helped that, after the first few wears of initial snugness, I went for a short hike in them. I find that sweating in them helps speed up the process a bit.
>>16551192>tfw no militant dom gf to get stomped by

>>16551563If you can find someone who will do it for 70 bucks you'll be lucky. I bet most places quote you 110.
>>16551712Would you recommend these?
>>16552785I like cap toes too fuck
>>16552978post boot collection
>>16552955>>16552785>that list only includes brands that offer plain toesThis does NOT mean that the brands DON'T offer cap toes. Look at Helm's website and see their cap-toed boots.
poorfags and idiots ITTstay jelly
>>16550812>>16551511>>16551583Alright, will avoid
>>16553046nice, I was thinking about getting some ropers. id on (all of) these?
>>16552830You'll get one some day!>>16552904I've had them for about a year, so I can tell you:>they are comfy>they adapted to my feet quickly>they make me less scared when walking outside in the dark
>>16553062they all look like tecovas
>>16550810Cop real boots insteadThis is shit, like really terrible.Yes it will cost more than $100 unless you buy second hand>But im poor etcThen save up. No excuses
>>16552955what the fuck is going on with helm?they're Blake rapid sticked but prominent welt stitching?
jus looked at my old corcorans I used to wear for motorcyclinglooking rough. how do you properly mothball a boot?
>>16553473Clean them and condition them before you put them away
mink oil on new chromexcel y/n?
>>16553514NOIt'll darken the leather and clog the pores. Mink oil is great for outdoor work boot applications because it heavily conditions leather. But I seriously doubt you'll be putting those through enough abuse to justify mink oil. Also, most leather is perfectly conditioned from the factory. I'd recommend conditioning with Lexol or Bick4 every 6 months at the most.
>>16553622>It'll darken the leatherwe vantablack naowill skip the mink for now
shoes are comfy but I absolutely cannot walk up stairs becuse they dont flex yetwhat do?
>>16553687only walk down stairs, obviously
>>16553697reverse cow strategy but serously
>>16553687put them in the microwave to soften them up a bit. in the meantime, go up stairs on your knees.
>>16552972I really like mine, I got a pair last month and I’m starting to really break them in, just make sure the sizing is perfect, if you know it’s too small send it back.
>>16552620ikr, those look objectively good (sober, nothing flashy / out of place, classic, nice color, decent quality…), it seems like a very reasonable choice. Is he dressing for himself or just to be accepted by a couple of /fa/nons?
>>16552375>>16553728they're good for the price bracket. in real life, the toeboxes are a bit too pointy and they're leaky as a bucket. otherwise, they're fine.
>>16553687wear them around your house until they break in enough
>>16553736Yeah I think they saw the 'Red Wing clown shoes' meme and were trying to go the opposite direction. But pointy elf shoes look just as silly as clown shoes if you're going for the causal boot audience.
>>16553754pointy toeboxes can at least be stretched out.
>>16552982>note a lack of posting his own>>16553052>note a lack of responseWhat a joke. Other than one pair of boots I paid too much for, my whole collection I spent as much on as most people here do for one pair of low-quality particle board and injected rubber covered in a thin layer of maybe leatherthis boots thread is a jokeyou people don't actually wear your boots for any worth
>>16553879feel free to leave
Do these look too much like military boots?
>>16553933>designed to look like patrol boots>do they look like patrol boots>>16553905I like that you don't disagree with any of it. In fact, your response implies an agreement There is nothing of value in this thread, or board- just kids wasting their money on actual lower quality knock offs of stuff they could get for a literal 1/15th of the price
>>16553687wear thicker socks, lightly condition the shaft area and just keep walking until they break in
how about these?
>>16553963Those look like they're going to fall apart either when you actually pull on the laces to tighten it, or when you step on a curb. I'm God-damned curious to what they want for them; whats the price ?
>>16553971they're 180 euros
>>16553971holy fucking cringe, I checked and they are asking for 60$- and that might be with a 50% offyou could get two actual full leather (side zip if you want) boots in great condition if you tried for the same price.People actually spend 60-120 for these >>16553963?
>>16553963>>16553973those look like shit
>>16553879>>16553946you clearly have something you're upset about but it's not this thread the cheapest boot in here are Thursdays and that doesnt fit your complaint about fake leather. anyone who pops in to ask about random cheaper shoes gets told not to I think you're looking for validation about your boots but nobody cares that you thrifted some paramemes and want to circlejerk about quality when everything talked about here is quality your also talking about use but fail to understand that different uses exist and boots are designed for those uses. not everything needs to be a whites smokejumper tl;dr solve your personal issues then come back when you can be normal
Is Dr Martens Wonder Balsam any good? I don't know shit about conditioning leather and I'm thinking of getting more combat boots.
>>16553973HOLY SHITI thought 60 to maybe 120 was bad- over 200 USD for them ? maybe the 120 was with 50% off, that hurts to think aboutMy friend, please. Please, no. Not even over priced, their design is inherently weak. There is no outsole, where the zipper hits the bottom is a major weak point
>>16553963>>16553973lol what the fuck is this
>>16553976>projecting own issues onto meNo, there is no personal issues.I don't like to see people waste money when they could just not- and definitely not for low quality trash footwear.>the cheapest boot in here are Thursdayssee >>16552930>less than 10$but that was a gamble so it would have been more 60-80; great boot tho, very much worth that price>>16550397were 30 dollars; full leather, even a meme top flap with two bucklesno fraying, the outsole was in great conditionYou can get actual leather and built to last boots for less than 100$ in 2021>your also talking about use but fail to understand that different uses exist and boots are designed for those usesThat was because the outsoles of a picture were all in absolute new condition. No wear no dirt. They were four pairs of boots with no wear on them. Their entire reason for being bought was to take pictures of them. That was my 'failure to use' comment
>>16553973>the labels come pre-worn>in similar V-shaped markingsoh man
>>16553987so basically you're assmad that were not buying used and surplus combat boots but what really set you off was the gay cowboy that noone cared about????despite the fact that multiple people in here have combat boots??
>>16554004>but what really set you off was the gay cowboy that noone cared about????someone cared >>16553062maybe you aren't paying attention, makes your argument weaker. next time check before you make a claim>so basically you're assmad that were not buying used and surplus combat bootsNot really, wouldn't say "umad" about it. Just posting it's an option and frankly a better alternative than spending 180 euros for some meme >>16553973 when you could get any high quality european boots for much less>despite the fact that multiple people in here have combat boots??mark them in your next reply, I don't see them except for >>16551192
>>16553976>>16554004stop taking the bait you fucking retard
>>16554025Not bait. Are you unable to hold a thought and have a conversation ?
>>16554017so you're upset that the garbage wer laughing at costs 180, you haven't been in the previous threads to see the combat boots and you're mad that the gau cowboy has a friend idk mayne happy Friday hope it goes well for ucongrats on buying cheap combat bootsmaybe that what you need to hear
>>16554030>you haven't been in the previous threads to see the combat bootsAre you talking about my boots I posted in the previous thread? You said "in here" which means this threadI note you didn't actually cite any of them in your reponse, maybe you can't and are trying to hide that mistake>you're mad that the gau cowboy has a friend>I was wrong but I will spin it to be insulting to youWhat a good counter.

It wasn't what I was going for, but an appreciation for a good deal on quality footwear is still nice.

Non-boot related but leather footwear related question. Does anyone have experience with Quoddy mocs? They look like a nice comfy summer/fall shoe.
>>16552930Only good boot in this thread
What to do with one boots heel counter being non conforming to my heel? The other boot cups around fine, but it seems like this one is just flat against the back of my foot and it sucks for walking

Looking for an alternative to these Allen Edmonds boots as they’re a bit out of my budget at $450. Here’s what I’m looking for:>$250 max>Similar style >Don’t care about weather/water proofingI know Tuesday Boots are kind of the internet cheap go to these days, but I wanted to see if there was anything else out there. These are really just for weekend and going out for dinner wear.
>>16555176i really hope you trip and fall tomorrow
>>16555176no one is impressed
>>16555176>looks similar I didn’t post a picture of shit anon so I fail to see how those look similar at all.
show me Corcoran boot fits
>>16550521This is a longshot, but would anyone be able to identify these two pair of boots? These two guys are the main actors in the german show 'Dogs of Berlin'
>>16555376heres a close up on the left guys boots
>>16555176those look like they're made of some wood fibre based wartime rubber substitute
>>16555417Williston coud do the job.https://www.google.com/search?tbm=isch&q=Williston%20boots
My French BMJA Mle 52 arrived, happy with them, although I need ideas on what would be the best types of trousers to wear with them. My skinny jeans are a little too skinny
>>16552375haven't been on this board in 4 years and I can tell you right now newfags mald when I say... doc martens, unironically. If you are absolutely brand new to buying boots just get docs they are reletively cheap, come in many different shapes, sizes, colors and unoffensive (you'll find something you like). Dads been wearing his for 11 years straight, been wearing my most recent pair for 4.
>>16555767tuck your skinnies into them
>>16555800>mald>non chins zoomer twitch lingo
>>16555422Wrong. Leather boots with the bottoms basically coated in rubber. Very long lasting; pic related is the previous version of the boot without the waterproofing coatVery stiff sole, it's basically a rubber boot with leather accents at this point.
>>16556017Wouldn't the rubber coating delaminate from the leather eventually?
>>16555767where'd you buy from?
>>16556105Maybe. it was made in 1968 and it's still basically new except some blue on the brass eyelets pre-70s footwear was usually built "to last" (jokes aside) or have parts replaceable
>>16556017the point is that they look like shit
>>16556248>high quality leather boots with durable rubber waterproofing>but it looks dumbpost the boots you wear in wet weatherand an actual picture you took not some website screencap

>>16556610why do yuros have such a terrible boot culture? is it really paying out the ass for British brands or dressy Italian brands and that's it? does no country make good service boots out there?

>>16556665dude is asking about Thursdays and you talk about milsurpi think you're 19, never had a job and probably think its formal as long as the leather is black
>>16556707read the first two lines from his post
>>16556727read the rest and stop responding to posts like a shitty ai
>>16556727sorry to say, he was right, i am indeed looking for something inbetween dress and casual rather than milsurp.
>>16556617The bootmakers there are very oldschool and don't advertise on ticktock or whatever, so yuro zoomers don't know they exist.
>>16556173https://www.trancheemilitaire.com/rangers-chaussures-hautes-/1049-rangers-marron-armee-francaise-annees-70.htmlI think I may have bought the last pair in size 43 as they don't seem to be available anymore.If you do get a pair in your size you'll have to invest in leather restore products like neatsfoot oil, and restore the rubber. But they're in great condition, just been in storage for like 50 yearshttp://cartalana.com/002-15.php
just bought me those :)
>>16550680Get their chukkas with the plantation sole or get a pair of Sanders.
R8 and H8. I have another pair of Indy’s on the way in nubuck.
>>16556707watdude is just asking for cheap euroboots
>>16557120how bad was the QC on the Aldens? I have had terrible experience with that shitty companydo they have high schoolers sewing the uppers or something?
>>16557165No issues with any of mine. The place I get them from is known to go through all of them return anything that slips past qc. From what I’ve heard it’s usually sloppy sole stitching which end up getting sold somewhere else as seconds for a discount. I’ve had horrible experiences with Allen Edmonds though.
>>16557134Projecting his failures
>>16557207ahh that's alright, everyone wants something cheap every once in a while. just bought some cheap jeans myself.also I read the thread and it turns out he did want something a bit dressier, he just didn't say so at the outset.
>>16557171i got a pair with welt stitching so bad i literally just started laughing when i opened the box and saw them. didn't even put them on my feet just immediately emailed about an exchange. they welt stitching on one boot had 3 knots from where they stopped and started the welt stitcher and tied the stitches together, on one boot the welt thread was fuzzy and coming unraveled on on the bottom thread there was two different colors or thread because it took them multiple times to get the stitching done. motherfuckers, it should be one and done with the welt stitcher. one row, one time and one spool of thread. not multiple goes, stitches tied together, coming unraveled and different colors.got a new pair a week later with a crooked tongue and a lining that wasn't sewn very well.i have given up on Alden and won't be buying from them or supporting them in any way again. which is a shame as i love their handsewn loafer and would kill for it in cordovan

>>16557669yeah fair enough, have to admit I'm not exactly sober right now
What company makes good boots for large feet? I wear a 16 wide or a 17 depending on the brand. Can anyone help pic related, its me

Quite a fan of these boots

Is there a specific name for this kind of locking system ? >inb4 "edgy shooter tryhard"
Why are boots so good bros? I like my dress boots way more than the my dress shoes
>>16558176Me too man. I dunno why, they're just so nice and comfy.
>>16558176Than the rest of my*
>>16558048i just find their toes to be a tad bit pointy. Plus the heel blocks are too high.
>>16558176exposed ankles are a sign of moral decay
>>16558142Fidlock V-buckle. Not a common closure on boots but you see them a lot on “techwear” gear.
>>16558437See I kinda like that, and I'm coming from a pair of Iron Rangers. The Thursday Captains feel al lot sleeker and dressier than my IRs
>>16558542Mate I said I'm poor
>>16558644Wait, what the fuck. That shows up as 483 EUR for me.Also, the nice Viberg style service boots aren't very cheap either. At least 300 USD from places like Grant Stone. Thursday a shit. If that's really 399 EUR for you, it's comparable to Red Wing's service boots price but much nicer.
>>16558542>>16558671did you really recommend $600 boots to someone who said they are looking at thursdays which are around $200?im convinced im actually dead and reality is just becoming increasingly absurd to fuck with me
>>16550810not boots but I have a selected homme longsleeve and it's based, can't comment on their boots thoughjust google the boot followed by 'review' and go from therein the same vein with my post, replay boots yay or nay?
