You might have to accept that your ankles are little too skinny. Going to EE will not help the length of the boot.

You can also alternative take the unstructured toe pill
>>
>>16642503
>Toes will absolutely not get better because there's a plastic piece at the toe that will not expand
I thought we were talking about the toe cap?

The boots fit fine on my ankles but it's a bit loose above the ankles, around the bony part on the sides of your feet or in other words it's a bit loose around the upper part of the boot.

iron rangers and most other shoes have a celastic toe piece between the outer and the lining that gives it structure. that celastic piece will not yield nor stretch. it sounds like your middle and ring toes are pressing up against it

you can have unstructured cap toes that do not contain the celastic toe
>>
>>16642558
>iron rangers and most other shoes have a celastic toe piece between the outer and the lining that gives it structure

Should I size up then from 9.5=>10? Or should I get the wider EE version? What do you recommend?
>>
>>16642562
sizing up could introduce other issues, don't know if wider would help at all, try them on in store and see

You might have to accept that the last is not suitable to your feet
>>
>>16642566
So in other words with the iron rangers (and most boots with the celastic piece), if there is pressure on the toes from any which direction, it is pretty much a deal breaker then?

I PROPOSED AN OP YOU COCKSUCKING PIECE OF SHIT
REPOSTING IT FOR POSTERITY

Such and So Edition
/boot/ general: we talk about (usually resoleable leather) boots

>paramemes?
aka feldschuh, leicht: find steinkogler ones. for other european milsurp boots, try finding marbot or pre-2009 argueyrolle french rangers.
>docs?
no. solovairs at a minimum, but be aware that their soles typically crack
>how do I care for these expensive boots?
brush them and condition them once a year or so. that's it
>how should they fit?
widest part of your foot matches the widest part of the boot.

what should I buy?
North American brands (roughly sorted by price, usually a workboot type look):
john doe (MTO)
thursday
Adelante (L/R differential sizing)
Corcoran jump boots (originals only)
Wolverine (1k miles on sale only)
Thorogood/Redwing (moc toes and workboots)
Quoddy/Rancourt (boat shoes)
Grant Stone
Oak Street
Rider Boot Co. (Euro-shaped in tougher leathers)
Parkhurst (always out of stock)
Nick's/White's/Frank's (MTO workboots)
Wesco (Nick's/White's/Frank's but better, engineers)
Viberg?

European brands (roughly sorted by price, dressier looking and expensive):
Solovair (if you must...)
Loake
Meermin (stiff as all fuck to break in)
William Lennon (MTO)
Story et Fall (jodhpurs, chelseas)
Scarosso
Carlos Santos (patina)
Cheaney (pebble leather, country boots)
Crockett & Jones (yes this is the James Bond Skyfall boot)
Tricker's
Carmina (excessively dressy)
Zonkey Boots (weird shit)
Edward Green (Country boots)
Vass
Enzo Bonafe

Other places to ask about:
Indonesian makers (MTO)

they aren't commonly asked about. and those are probably late argueyrolles, which are apparently bad (not that I have any actual experience), plus they are far more expensive. paramemes became paramemes for price

Are redwings not on the american style list for a reason? Genuine question.
Also would be great to break these into price tiers rather than alphabetical imho since a lot of people drop into these threads to ask about babby's first boots, should they get Docs and Timbs, etc.
>>
Here's a question, will decorative cavalry spurs look offensively retarded on normal laceups like Iron Rangers? I think they'll look a bit silly on a moc toe or something similarly casual.
Yes I know I'll look like a gay cowboy either way but I'm really not looking to ever wear cowboy boots.
>>
>>16642678
You're still at it? Man, just pick the ones you like the most from the options available to you. You're not gonna get your perfect boots ever, much less in the first try. I currently own four pairs of boots, have another pair on the way and my eyes on another couple. Not to mention that I'm really tempted to get a pair of french rangers just to try them and make a writeup here about them. I'm the one brought them to light here (as far as I can tell) and I'd like to turn them into the new meme boits fir shits and giggles.

Seconding this.

Is ot retarded to wear something specifically made for riding horses when you're not riding a horse but also, on top of that with boots that are not meant to ride horses nor meant to have spurs? Gee, I dunno, anon.

Shut the fuck up and just order some damn boots already. You're overthinking this.
>>
>>16642810
Are you in the Army in a cavalry unit and completed their rite of passage thing they do to "earn their spurs"?
If not then absolutely do not ever wear decoration spurs. There's no context for them and it will look incredibly stupid
>>
>>16642840
Everything looks retarded on military roughout boots

>>16642843
Obviously I'm planning on earning my spurs soon otherwise why would I even think to be wearing them? For context, I was just wondering what style boots might look decent to wear them with on Veteran's day or etc when I'm not in uniform.

compared to the 80s ones I can't confirm, but they're supposed to be the best option currently

they're cheaper than paramemes???

>>
>>16643206
There's a 90% chance the following will happen:
-The boots arrive and you're happy with them, they'll look good to you and you'll wear them a lot the first days or weeks. You'll feel a little uncomfortable at first because you're not accustomed to boots and you need to break them in.
Eventually, you'll find flaws on your boots. You'll still like them, but they will not be all you wanted in a boot. You'll question your purchase but it's too late now. So you'll research a bit more on boots, you'll browse this general several times a day, maybe even go to *gasp* redditt even.
In time, you'll decide you need another pair of boots and after much lurking, asking and being shit on in here, you'll get another pair, but tjis time the boots will be better and you'll find yourself spending 300-400 on your second pair of boots. And then the cycle will begin again.
Welcome to the bootfag brotherhood, friend, enjoy your stay because you're here forever. The boot ride never ends.

yeah they're probably shit. welt looks plastic/fake, but I could be wrong. you can test it by scratching at it with your nail. if fibers come up it's leather. that being said, you have them, so might as well wear them, unless you hate them or they're ugly while on your feet. they're probably fine. hobbyists like us sometimes throw big fits if people don't wear 'the good stuff' but the difference isn't really that large.

First one is the piece of leather that goes on the heel and extends to the top of eht shaft (heel cap?)
Second is the piece of leather that wraps around the upper half of the shaft (no idea, I don't even know how it's called in my own language).

Not that anon, but I sometimes cuff my pants and sometimes I don't, depending on pants and the boots I'm wearing. I do not concern myself much about how I might look to others, I was never a looker and people do not pay too much attention to me. But if I think the pants and boots I'm wearing look better that day cuffed, I do it. It makes me feel better about myself and that's what matters to me. People irl rarely pay attention to what and how others are wearing anyway.

Bear in mind that these were one of a kind. Most at this price are very worn out and heavily creased. Some even needing new soles, but considering what people paid for paramemes in similar condition, I really think these could be the new meme combat boots. I could, however, search for your number to see what's on Vinted. But if I were you I would wait until I got mine and can properly review them.

it sounds like what you're looking for is a pair of roper boots. pic related from google images, they're basically the same as cowboy boots but more urban looking with a shorter shaft different heel and less ornamental features. engineer boots look vaguely western but aren't a direct parallel with cowboy boots, I guess it would depend on what kind of larp you are trying to pull off.

Tricky to size. They fit larger in the sense that the foot cavity is taller to account for a cork or felt insole, which was standard at the time. Generally fits half a size large. As with everything do not trust tag size. Mine are stamped 8.5 but fit more like a 9
>>
>>16644063
Technically they are true to size
They were just made when adding a traditional insole of your own was common. They are legit CSA work boots after all. Also protip, wear only socks of high or pure wool content in boots like those. I suggest Duray or Stanfield's

Last I'll say is the seller doesnt carry all sizes under the sun, of course. These are 50+ year old dead stock from the Canadian equivalent to Red Wing, once upon a time ago. They do have elements of hand stitching so the seller was very helpful finding something right for me if they had it. One thing though, almost none of the boots are in their matching box. The boxes are originals, but the boot sizes dont match what is printed on them. They were already scrambled when he got them

A question I might get chastised for, but whatever, I'll try. I wore Doc Martens 1460 in college, Gaucho Crazy Horse which is their only full grain option (I think). The uppers cracked in two years anyway.
I'm struggling to find a replacement. They have a very specific fit/last, which you can kind of see on this pic - the instep is narrow, but the forepart/toebox is flat and wide, almost "floppy" in a way. They also have a matted and somewhat flat sole.
I tried solovair, but they were both shorter and narrower in the toe (although almost as flat), and had a much thicker glossy sole. Tried Red Wing, but they were obviously entirely different, everybody knows about their toebox at this point. Also checked Loake country boots (Sedbergh I think), but they were narrower, pointier, and the leather was dress-shoe thin. I heard about Sanders Kelso being good, but I'm not sure if it's worth a try if they're coming from the same "dressy country boot" tradition as Loake.
Anybody got any models I should look at?

wider AND flatter. If I understand correctly a lot of companies will just say "roomy toebox" do that across both axes, and that makes for toeboxes that are too bulbous and "turned up" for me.

I want to avoid that. I suppose the Munson last also fits that criterion?

not him, but the Guidi tannery was a thing way before Guidi boots were. Guido Guidi founded the Tuscan tannery ages ago at some point late in the 1800s and they have been supplying leather to high end labels and designers since their inception, the Guidi family had been practicing the family trade of leather tanning and leather working for generations prior, but the Guidi tannery is the largest scale business and the currently pperatijg one. before Guido, members of the Guidi family had just run small shops in Italian villages.
Ruggero Guidi is the current heir (great grandson of Guido I think, but I could be off by a generation) of the Guidi family, there are others, but he is the most central in the business and he founded Guidi the boot company.
The method that Guidi uses is like the Coca-Cola secret formula of leather tanning, they keep it very secret.
I don't have any examples of the leather to post, but there are plenty of pictures on google images and other sites.

picrel are some service boot repros which are made on the munson last (for color and waterproofing you're 'supposed' to dubbin these. personally I like the look, some people don't like the idea). another way to keep the toeboxes from turning up a lot is to use shoetrees religiously. a lot of guys who worship the beat-up 'I'm so rugged and cool' type of look for their boots skip trees or use wacky weird break-in methods and that makes their boots curl more at the flex point

I really have no idea.
I did 'some' research into this, but I kept myself from doing too much since I tend to go down deep rabbit holes if I don't stop myself.

afaik the best brands for "nice" engineers (i.e. elegant looking) are these specific Wesco Mr. Lous, John Lofgren, and Clinches.
And the Wescos are probably the slimmest, the most squared toe'd, and the cheapest out of these lol

I actually wanted the natural CXL color, and I know of a pair of John Lofgrens in that color, but then the profile isn't quite as slim and the toe isn't as squared.
Maybe I'll get those instead if the Wescos don't work out.

w2c some decent derbies for around 200 EUR (hopefully lower)? Must be available in Europe and comfort is a big plus

A lot of people shit on Clarks but bought a pair for work and they lasted me ten years. I worked retail and was on my feet 100% of the time. They were comfy on top of durable.

Those Artistas look nice. Maybe I'll get them some day but I really like the looks of the boots I ordered.

My left foit is half a centimeter shorter than the right. As such, I tend to get some heel slippage in some boots that causes chaffing and blisters. Is there a way to prevent this?

>>16645495
Add an insole that tightens around the midfoot area, to prevent heel slip. Or, just add another pair of socks for the left shoe.
>>
>>16645611
yeah solovair are good
astorflex has a nice derby in black if you like suede

Thanks. Canadian army issue. I bought them some time post highschool in 2008. Been maining them since. Just got the brown ones. Same company but a 1960s workbook, very recognizable in Canada, long before Greb Industries got commissioned by the CAF

95%of belts are two strips of bonded leather stitched to a foam snake that shits the bed in 6 months when all you fucking need to make a belt is a single strip of leather

Many wouldn't think to look at Canadiana when it comes to boots but there was a time we were top shelf. They do fit slightly large to account for insoles and wool socks. Mine are marked 7.5-8 but fit more like 9

I have 2 that arent garbage. I only bought the shit one to match some shoes becuse the was nothing else there
regret it and just wear the lightly darker timbs brown belt I have

Just for context: I'm from EU but about ten years ago I was on a short holiday to the USA, I went to a Clarks outlet there and found a pair for about 50 bucks, considering the euro was almost 1.5 dollars at the time, I thought they were a good deal since those are usually 100-110€ in my country. I got them for work, I worked retail and had to wear a suit and somewhat formal shoes (not necessarily oxfords, derbys were acceptable) at the time. I wore them to the ground, it was just only months ago I got rid of them because they were already falling apart. Overall, the best cost to usage ratio of any pair of shoes I've ever had.

I don't remmember the model, but checking the Clarks website, I'm almost sure they were Becken Lace, since they look exactly the same (picrel) as the ones I had.

I was looking at those on their website just now
Too bad my usual 45 is sold out, might try the 46 though maybe it'll fit
Do you remember how they fit? tts or need to size up/down?

My feet are 27-27,5cm long, which in theory puts me at 9-9.5 US. The Clarks were a 44EUR or 10 US and they fit pretty well, maybe just a tad too long, but I never had any weird feeling regarding fit with those shoes. Again, I used them for work so was walking or standing on them for 6-10 hours per day on average.

They're 30% off in my country's website now, BTW.
>>
>>16645902
Alright
They're 30% off here as well
Don't particularly like how they look pointed rather than rounded and the black heel as well, but at that price they seem pretty unbeatable
Free returns as well, just gonna cop and see
Thanks for the advice

likely still made brand new. rw just refuses to make the nicer boots for the us

I'm europoor, they're sold out but in the smallest numbers here too. I was hoping they'd be all I expected after all the years of wanting them, I'm now just joping they'll arrive. Seller had a 100% rating, though.
>>
>>16645250
No sounds like a you problem, I'm 6'4 and I'm able to find pants that fit me, if you can't figure that out you're pretty stupid.
>>
>>16645928
They're not the best looking shoe or the most dressy, but they got the job done for me. I know I sound like a Clarks shill, but honestly, from all the shoes I had for work in all those years, those were the ones which lasted longer and the most comfortable.

Ok, so I'm gonna take advantage of the White's black friday sale and I got a lot a questions so maybe you guys will humor me.

I'm pretty much set on either the 350's or the MP's.

Between the two 350's, I can visually see the differences, but what do they amount to? The cutter has more eyelets and seems to have an ankle that stands straighter up. And the soles are slightly different. Will the cruiser have more flexibility in the toe? What's the difference here? White's' website does a terrible job describing their boots.

I know about White's and their little leather wedge for arch support. I have almost flat feet. I was reading a review of someone who bought a pair of 350's and said that the arch support hurt their feet but their feet eventually got used to it. To me that is bass ackwards. I thought the whole point of leather soles was that the shoe gets used to your foot, not the other way around. Can I request a 350 built on a MP last? I know over time the arch support might break in and get compressed and fit my feet a little bit better, but that leather wedge isn't like cork, it isn't going to just disappear.

Another question, on the MP's, is the one-piece heel and back stay on the MP1 series just an aesthetic thing? Is there a functional difference or is it purely aesthetic?

Another question, is the difference between a dainite sole and the half-lug MP's purely a difference in traction or is there more to it than that?

Last question, I think I saw people saying that White's will accommodate requests like like cutting the welt closer to the boot for a sharper look, do I have that right? Would they accommodate that? What about if I asked them to run a channel cut along where the welt is going to be along the bottom of the outsole because I'm autistic about the thread of the welt getting worn threadbare and eventually breaking because it's exposed.

Pls post White's for inspo and say what you have/what you would get
