I own no black footwear except a pair of black oxfords I wear on special occasions.How can I buy a black boot that isn't boring or too dressy?I wouldn't do black CXL because it dickveins when it creases

>>17898119>C*rk/C*lasticCork? Whats wrong with it? isn't it used in almost any boot as the inner sole.Wtf does C*lastic even mean?
>>17898261solid leather > corkC*lastic is the plastic piece in the heel and toe, plastic is bad for fit because it does not mould to your foot like leather does
>>17898261nothing is wrong with it. You can ignore most things in the red flags. Some retard will tell you that full leather is better, with zero evidence to back that up, but no worries you will hear him coming by the squeaking of his boots.Celastic is what's used to give structure to the toe box, its bad to have celastic heel counters, but unstructured toeboxes look horrid

>>17898119recent thrift store cops the Danners were $30 and I “restored” themthe Tricker’s were $80 and purchased in good condition Not sure if I want to sell them, they are both my size and fit well but they are both sort of oddball styles that won’t get much useI haven’t found any trace of the Trickers online with the 9 holes and the Vibram wedge, they are probably the least gay monkey boots I have ever seen
the Danners were fucking trashed, but I enjoyed the challenge of making them presentable again. pic related is conditioned vs cleaned with saddle soapThe worst part was the eyelets being rusted to shitI can’t see a use for them really, they are total goober territory worn casually
>>17898315>>17898317not bad, all the selection i have at thrift stores are usually junk
>>17898315>>17898317what thrift stores are you finding actual boots in? I've found one pair of Mezlan derbies in years of looking for salvageable thrift store shoes.
the danners when i got them boy were they fucked upthe sole is still 90-95% i have no clue what the guy was doing in them to trash the upper like that. must have left them wet for a while for them to collapse like that and the eyelets to rust from the wet lace
>>17898267Your webm shows rubber pad instead of cork. What solid leather?Also learn to size your boots so you don't use your toe to deform the toebox redditard.

In your case, I’d go with his original service boot style with some black Maryam horsebutt.

>>17898599you're one of THOSE retards huh
>>17898599show me one law against being caked up
>>17898605Dunno what you're talking about.Heels came historically from riding horses.If you're telling me that the design of the heightened heel is better for your feet, then why is it that our feet didn't evolve like that.Another point would be that it's unnatural to walk with your heel first, watch how children walk, that's the right way of walking.But try and convince me otherwise.It's nothing more than style to me.
zero drop tards are the flat earthers of boots and apparently the children watchers too
>>17898622Zero drop(more like zero drip) and barefoot shoes are an excellent example of how easy it is to market products to people with no critical thinking skills. Footwear has existed since the vendel period which leaves plenty of time for people to evolve into wearing boots.
>>17898622with 80% of the population developing lower back problems in their lifetime is it natural to be walking upright then?using all 4 of your limbs for mobility is the only right waydon't even bother proving me wrong, because you can't

imagine walking with heel first and not walking ankle first lmao

What do you retards think about White's sizing? I'm thinking about getting a set of 6" Perry's since they are on sale and their sizing guide has me right between a 12.5 D and a 12 EE. Should I shoot for the 12 EE and hope there's enough wiggle room that it fits in the toe or should I go for the 12.5 D and risk having too much room in the heel?
>>17898751i would just call them and get their recommendation if you're in between sizes for length and width like that.
>>17898757That sounds like reasonable advice. I appreciate you. This will be my first pair of "nice boots" aside from the Danner USA stuff I have used for work-boots in the past. Definitely kind of a luxury fashion purchase that I don't "need" but I'd like not to screw it up if possible.
>>17898765good luck. i ordered a pair too and i'm hoping that they work. slightly easier for me since i definitely need ee width. i just went half a size down from my brannock for length.
>>17898769My brannock for sneakers is in between 12.5 and 13, so usually I wear 13's so I don't have as much to worry about with width and all of that. With Danner's boots a 12 EE fits me perfectly for their Quarry and Loggers, but every company is different and nobody near me has White's boots in person.
>>17898751Half down from brannock
>>17898773nobody has a brannock
>>17898775Go to a shoe store, read the guide on the brannock website, get your measurements and go half down from your highest HTB measurement.
>>17898773I did the tracing the outline of my foot on their paper bit and used their sizing guide.I'm probably being autistic and both the 12 EE and 12.5 D would fit me fine but with more toe length/heel room for the 12.5 D and more of a "sneaker fit" with less length in the toe if I did 12 EE.

I applied conditioner with pigment to an old pair of black boots. I left them air for three days, wiped them off with a cotton rag, brushed them vigorously, wiped them off again with a damp cloth and still they leave a tiny bit of residue on my fingers when I touch them and on my pants.Is there anything else I can do?
>>17899108>Is there anything else I can do?Stop using pigment if you don't want your pants dyed.Also use degreaser to remove the garbage you applied.
>>17899124I normally don't use pigment, but these boots were very decoloured and scuffed and wanted to bring it back a little
>>17899108What brand did you use? After buffing i have no pigment coming off anymore, especially not on my skin.
>>17898557I like the look of this but am leaning towards the semi dress because the 5050 last seems more comfortable. The Sherman looks like it will cram my feet.

So Parkhurst makes the only acceptable Indy clone? Nothing else comes close to capturing what the actual Indy looks like while still being just original enough to feel different
>>17899299I like the ottawa but people always make fun of me for saying this.

I actually really like the Niagara but the Indy just has a certain ruggedness to it that the Niagara lacks. The Niagara looks like a boot programmers wear to the office. The Indy still has a rugged aesthetic to it while still having a clean aesthetic
>>17899299the ae Freeport is the best clone but they dont sell it on a sensible sole
>>17899326Looks ugly as fuck. You're not getting more boot for the money and cordovan is a meme Parkhurst does competently made boots with good materials, same as C&J. But with C&J you have to pay more for the name and to cover their overhead
>>17899333this is insane poorfag cope, you never owned C&J. Check out my NV Indy!! Even that is closer and its not the same thing.

>>17899335lmao this looks like dogshit
>>17899348thanksI also sell fake rolexes if you ever want one
>>17899326I admit the Parkhurst are different because they're likely much better build than whatever Alden is capable of producing.
>can't even afford an indy>has to cope with the most basic U-Tip pattern in existenceIt's fine anon, just don't pretend like its just like the real thing.
>>17899362dont seethe too hard man, your indy might fall apart

i wear red wing 1907s for cycling but I use road pedals with metal spikes and they completely tear up the wedge solesanyone have an idea for a better sole material for this, or a similar boot with such a sole, or road pedals that won't tear up soles but still grip?
>>17899366I don't even own one, its shit value, im still not gonna cope with a U-tip boot. You either buy a U-Tip or an Alden indy, no such thing as a cop(e)y
>>17899362I own Indys dumbass. But I'm not deluded enough to pretend they're some amazing high quality piece of footwear. Mine were riddled with QC issues
>>17899377>I don't even own oneOh okay, so you were projecting. I should've guessed.
I should just buy the brass so I can stop thinking about it

to all you fighting over indy clonesI give youStefano Bemer
>>17899390>dude CHEAP lmao 350+ for a boot is not "cheap". And 800 for a boot because it's from C&J does not make it betterOnly things that matter are materials and construction. If it's made the right way (goodyear welted) with the right materials (high quality upper leather, leather insole) then price is irrelevant. Where it is made is also irrelevant as long as the above mentioned are good. Parkhurst is made in the USA (in the same factory that Oak Street is made in) or in Spain (very good shoemaking tradition with very high quality brands made there)Alden's are made with synthetic midsoles, shitty CXL and quality control so bad it's laughable some days. The Indy costs 600 but is not a 600 dollar bootThe Niagara by Parkhurst is in all likelihood a much better boot than the Alden Indy and it's much cheaper as well
Toe cap or not. What do they say about the wearer? When are they appropriate?

>>17899584Not sure how to take it. Homos are supposed to have good style. At the same time I don’t want to look like a homo. I’m thinking to get a pair of the Truman’s and a pair of the whites semi dress. Does it make sense to by two pairs are the same time since they’re on sale or make more sense to try one and see if my tastes develop further?
>>17899345Don't fall for the leather hiking boot meme and buy one from La Sportiva. If you know you might cycle a lot I would spent less on the hiking boot and buy a set of clipless pedals/shoes.
>>17899595I wouldn't load up on two similar boots in similar leathers unless you really intend to be constantly wearing boots and want some rotation options. Those Trumans look fine, the major complaint about the toecaps is that they're fake (who cares nobody is wearing these for field work) and that they look like clown shoes on shit like the Iron Redditors but those Trumans look fine.If you really want 2 boots I'd get a brown leather and black leather pair, or a standard brown leather and another material pair like suede/nubuck/roughout.
>>17899581I almost pulled the trigger on this boot, java flesh with toe cap. It's basically all I want in a boot. But not buying boots this year, hope they won't hike prices much in 2024.

Alright boys, my Role Clubs came in the mail today. Been wearing them around for an hour, so I’ll give you my immediate impressions. Please disregard my blog post if you don’t give a fuck.First off, I’ve had a pair of Mister Lou’s and Lofgren engineers and these already blow them out of the water. Even with just a RTW pair, the fit on these is damn near perfect. The issue that I had with the Wescos is that even with the “perfect” size, the shape of the boot was extremely uncomfortable and it has a seemingly nonexistent heel cup made of plastic material. The Lofgrens in comparison just werent the aesthetic I was going for and I personally hated the leather and thought it was way too soft and supple. I’m aware that Brian has used some of his standard cxl horsehide in the past that has yielded a ton of grain break that some people find gross, but so far the clicking on these looks pretty damn clean. That being said, this leather is likely going to form some creases the more I break them in, but I don’t really give a shit and I think it actually can add some character. All of the stitching is immaculate, and the welt join is way cleaner than most boots I’ve seen. My only complaint about these is that I would have preferred he used his proprietary rubber sole instead of a leather one, but I’m honestly curious to see how it fares over time. I’ll probably end up getting it resoled a couple years down the line. Is it worth $2300? Probably not. However, these are by far the best engineers I’ve ever seen and worn. If you’re an engineer enthusiast you kind of just have to get a pair. Overall, they’re damn sexy and I’m satisfied with them. I’ll continue to post more photos
>>17900075Yeah I fuck with these. What's with those two lines down the middle though? I don't remember those in the pictures you posted when you said you had ordered them.
>>17900075Looks good I can’t wear pull out n boots because I have tiny ankles and low volume feet
>>17900079I think its something brian does on purpose? Might have to ask him not to do it, or maybe its the other way around. I hate it personally.
>>17900075I am glad you didn't run into any quality control issues. I genuinely feel bad for the people who got some fucked up pairs after dropping that much money.
>>17900083>I hate it personally.Same, especially in black it looks like the molding line of a rubber boot
>>17900079Those are toe tracts. It’s nothing more than an aesthetic feature that is vintage accurate of the 40s/50s engineers. The toe tracts are usually default on Role Club engineers
>>17900075Whatever that line is it looks hideous and ruins the boots for me
>>17900095Ruins the boots
>>17900104It's part of the lasting process, my RM Williams whole cut has something similar
>>17900129the place where my foreskin is supposed to be also has something similar
>>17900079i think it's to get the vamp shaped, it's stretched reversed over a form before lasting4:45https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1yDQiBXNaA&t=285
>>17900133Yeah it's a lasting thing
Buy wescos if you don't want a line running down your engineers
>>17900129>>17900134>Spend 2 grand on boots >not even hand lasted apparently nicks taking notes because they’ve gone the degenerate route of machine lasting as well
>>17900137Oh look, it’s the insufferable fat Wesco schizo who posts his 3 shitty boots in every thread
>>17900138>hand lasting is better because becau…. BECAUSE it just is OK
>>17900138Hand lasting is a complete and total meme and only exists to scam retards out of money It's a relic of how shoes were made before machines made things easier and more consistent
>>17900137Those are sick what’s the model?>>17900149Seething bootlet
>>17900153>scam people out of money>$2300 boots vs $600 boots>the cheaper ones are hand lasted
>>17900149Post your boots>>17900158Boss 7500
>>17899388Remember anon, the black one with the aniline dye
>>17900133lol i was wrong he adds the lines after the fact just for decorationhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybV5l_CsH2Q>>17900138he thinks a spic in his garage had a lasting machine built for him
>>17899388And a size down and width up. For example Brannock size: 9D, Brass boot: 8E. The 8.5D Brass boot will be too spacious
>>17900166>he adds the line Wow that's terrible
>>17900163It's marketing bullshitThose 700 dollar hand lasted Whites would go for 400 if they didn't have to pay for the extra labor time it takes to do it by hand
>>17900185no, there'd just be another 300 in some greasy fuck's pocket.
>the absolute state of redditards
>>17900075>>17900089>>17900095>>17900108I don't like the finishing on the leather, looks too rubber-ish but could be thevpics. I don't now how it's called or if it even has a nave, but the line of the outsole following from the heel to the arch to the toes looks dope. And the stitching is inmaculate. Love the natural edges on black boots. >>17900165>>17900168These look dope, never thought I'd like them in black. Way better than on the page.
>>17900185Take a look at some actual 400 dollar boots to compare and you’ll realize you’re wrong
>>17900191Why do they not tighten the laces on their boots? Very disturbing behavior
>>17900165just bought the crimson kudu :/
>>17900089>cuffing to above strapI knew I wasn't the only one
>>17900178for the $2,3k you spent, it definitely isif he wasn't ashamed himself of faking shit why would he bother skipping adding the lines in the making of video, so you just see them at the end on the final product
>>17900202We get it bro, you don’t like the toe tract
>>17900199Oh well. Post them when they arrive
>>17900196the intentionally size down too much because they're obsessed with vibergesque wide facings
>>17900204cause it's fake broalso >>17900095 he was drunk on cerveza when doin it and it took multiple attempts to get it in the middle
>>17900196Size too small+kiltie=impossible to tighten boots
>>17900205I do think the black looks clean but I dont like black boots and I'm not playing cxl roulette
>>17900196None of their boots fit because reddit is full of retards that assume the half size down rule is universal and applies to all brands So they all have boots that don't fit
>>17900075nice little stitch pattern on the top strap
>>17900207Nah they are sexooooo
>>17898599Bro look at OPs post. They NEED heels because the bootfags on /fa/ are incredibly insecure, height being one of the most common insecurities. I mean some of these people literally are insecure about where the creases are on their shoes LOL. These are the same people that freak out when they step in a puddle or god-forbid mud, and are unable to wear their supposedly durable PNW boots multiple days in a row
>>17898786>he doesn't know where Whites are made, only blindly believes marketingKek
>>17900265>says the guy who blindly believes a social media post with an obfuscated email lol
shut the fuck up already holy shit
>>17900277pretty sure that's objectively falseit might could be called "assembled in the USA" not made in USA
>>17900277outside of misleading labels, I honestly don't fucking care as long as it's still a quality bootwhy are americans so fucking annoying about this shit. its like they always have sand in their vaginasnext we'll have people having skub wars over american made dung patties vs mexican made dung patties
>>17900282Made in USA manufacturing is all we have left to claim to be proud of
>>17900277Who are they referring to?
>>17900286>Made in USA manufacturing is all we have left to claim to be proud of>ford>gm>alden>aegrim
>>17900277>>17900280>>17900282>>17900286>>17900295>>17900296To answer the actual question: Yes. As long as under 50% of the manufacturing was done in another country, then with greater than 50% completed in the US, it can legally be classified as ‘Made in the USA’. ‘Made in Italy+China’ ‘Made in China+North Korea’ etc. Companies of all sizes and types should be fined with criminal charges for pulling this shit.
>>17900302>Companies of all sizes and types should be fined with criminal charges for pulling this shit.surely you mean the lawmakers that made this shit legal
>>17900305Their entire bloodlines should be executed. All politics should be dealt with via one-one combat.
>>17900296Who makes the better boot, whites or truman?
>>17900313truman is just GYWwhite's is handwelted
>>17900313whitestruman makes really well built fasion bootswhites makes BIFL work/casual boots to a lower level of "finish" but far more robust construction
>want the black brass boots as well
grant stone cap toe boots are majorly slept onprobably the nicest thing they make
Will the Chinese shills out shill the whites shills?
>>17900332Buy Frank's Boots
will american shills ever understand that good boots can be made outside of the united states?
what happened to the guy with the ostrich grant stones?
>>17900339other than grant stone, they can't.americans invented boots and nobody has as much experience making them.see: pnw brands existing like 100 years
>>17900339Yeah, the entire region of Tyrol and the surrounding zones. >>1790036Your comment is fucking retarded, you dumb nigger. Those PNW makers came from Europe. Have you ever heard of Viktor Schauberger’s logging plumes?
>>17900370>Have you ever heard of Viktor Schauberger’s logging plumes?nobody hasamericans invented boots.
>>17900361the entire country of spain
>>17900361the entire country of ingerland...
>>17900361like all the english bootmakers have existed for as long or longer as the only old PNW maker that still exists (White's)
why don't europeans log?why don't they build logging boots?
>>17900373mexico 2.0>>17900375>>17900377what, doc martens?
I like the zero-drop boots. Can't wear my redwings anymore. Been looking at these Bruin boots. They are made in the USA, and can easily get the sole replaced when it wears out. Lems boots are nice too.

>>17900389>>17900390most of them also didn't sell out to ABC-Mart (KWAB)
>>17900389>>17900390they only started making boots later
