SHOW ME THOSE BOOTS PRIVATE
>>51637870 second boot
>>51637870>>51637881I often hear about those Vibram soles. Are they that great ?
>>51638172Vibram is a company my dude, they make tons of different soles.
>>51638172it took me 8 months of military service to get these soles to that condition which isn’t that goodbut the pair i got instead, lasted over a year and what tore was the leather, not the sole this time.it’s not uncomfortable when it’s not torn apartbut i don’t have anything to compare it with.i do slip a lot in them though
>>51637464I like my Irish Setters. About a year and a half of use out of them
>>51637464i have>hobnailed german 1866 infantry boots remade to regulation by jan from lederarsenal.com>surplus corcoran made in NL for their paratroops in the cold war >the obligatory set of cowboy boots i purchased that one time i went to Texasi'm lazy so imagine the look by ys
fashionable, comfortable, can traverse the foot and a half deep swamps where I life
Still pretty good after 2 yearsAlthough I skate less now so they’re less beat up
>>51637870didn't even have to look at the logo to know these were vibrams.
>>51637870Those bates? I've never seen a pair last longer than a year without doing this shit
peep ma kicks
>>51640675Old Swedish boots on the right? How do you like them?
>>51639977it’s IDF issued boots, specifically belleville made boots(McRae and some israeli company also manufacturers it with slight differences)don’t have that pair anymore so here is the heat picture i have of them
>>51640702Are you the Pyro ?
>>51640693they are very nice boots however the seller shiped them from europe in a bag so when they got here they where very dry and very deformed which has made them very painfull to break in
>>51638269I guess there are women on /k/, after all.
>>51640825You know how to break in full leather boots right? Soak them in water until they are soft, then walk them in.
>>51640929ive tried it and and it doesnt work that much better than just putting alot of boot oil on them and having calloused feet plus water strips the oils from the boots
>>51640825How's the sizing on them? Really considering a pair
>>51640929that's my go-to for leather bootsjust have to get lucky that they aren't worn it too much on the insole areaotherwise get a good insole that also covers bottom deformationFucking Tretorn boots, man/ They are nice but that rubber outsole is STIFF. Pictured is a pair I got for my friend, for only like 15$ crazy deal
>>51641229Nice, very impressive.Now post your actual pair- YOU FUCK
>>51641268Imagine LARPing that you own boots, and you still choose this pair
>>51641229>>51641258>>51641268>>51641307>>51641320Ok, for real now.Those Carhartts are my dream boots tho
>>51639170Where are those from?
I got these
>>51641565Are these the yeezys
>>51641753East German milsurp, never worn apparently cause they were perfect condition
Been breaking these in today.
>>51637870>>51637881Classic GI boots. The day you wear them in, the soles split.
>>51637464SHOW ME THOSE PRIVATES, BOOT
>>51641808rubbing oil into the leather speeds up the break in i found that gun oil works the best
>>51641189the sizing seams to be acurate i have really weird shaped feet so i dont know>>51641890nice bait>>51641223i love the stiff outsole i roll my ankles all the time so it helps >>51641799 dont wrap the laces around the boot just tie them in a squar knot and tuck them into the boot
>>51640714I made it 4 years with a single pair of Belleville 880st boots best ones I ever owned, tried their newer tan ones and they died in a couple months
>>51637464If I ever visited Texas (a dream state, right behind arizona) I want to buy nice pair of cowboy boots. Is it tacky to think this?>t. jew yorker
ChippewasBetter than my redwings not as nice as my kenetreks
>>51642994And not as smelly as my goretex danners
>>51640306What are these fucking things?
>>51642399Dayum, get some shoe trees nigga and brush them. You're gonna be the idiot saying "they didn't last" when you were an absolute shithead with them.
>>51642959Nah man. Wear em with pride and confidence.
Guys if you haven’t tried Kevlar laces you’re missing out. Give a great snug fit to your feet because they don’t stretch much.
>>51644404>assault lacesThat sounds aggressive. I don't support that sort of thing. Round, cotton is classic and works.
>>51637469Thought those were napa auto parts shoes for a sec.
>>51641969what bait it actually worksand that’s a common oil you can get your hands on in the military 9190 or was it 9180
>>51644470Assault Laces ban when?
Gotta get around to cleaning them off
I need a new pair, shame they don't make them all the time.
>>51645744take them to a cobbler
>>51642582i got the same boots just made by McRae thesehttps://www.mcguirearmynavy.com/products/idf-canvas-bootin those the leather tore after a bit more than a year
>>51640913comfiest boots ive ever had don't care
>>51642959As someone who’s worn them before, I’d say it’s not going to look natural unless you project confidence and pair them with the right outfit, and setting. I liked mine so much I wore them pretty often, just be aware that most cowboy boots that look good are functionally useless for outdoors stuff, and are more of a fashion statement. I don’t wear them anymore because I like more functional leather boots. I got some pussy back in college wearing them so they can’t be completely whack.
>>51642399What boots are these?
These were passed down from my grandpa. Seen plenty of use in the forest over the years and with a good washing they always look good as new
>>51644518Based. Breaking these in today.Ps someone bring me TP im stuck on the john
>>51646722Cowboy boots hurt my feet, but I have stupidly high arches and wide feet. People always gush about how comfortable they are, but I never thought that. I got pussy by knowing how to dance and I would just take my shoes off to waltz or two-step around.
>>51647301what belt is that anon?
>>51640675What do you call the toe style on these kinds of boots instead of the more elongnated ones you see on sneakers and other casual shoes? Looking for a good pair of boots that look like these
Waterproofing is long gone but they're still damn comfy, need to layer them up with some scotch guard. Also heat formed insoles are the fucking shit and you should all get them.
>>51648483Whoops, am retarded.
>>51642399Nice Rangers. Mine are beat to fuck as well.
Thorogood 8" moccs have been my goto for a few years. Only steel toe boot I can consider wearing outside of work comfortable on my mini hikes when I just want to go relax somewhere
>>51648637Kek i flipped it 90 the wrong way.
>>51637464Austrian Rangersblood of a jiggaboo home invader i beat with my AK
>>51645637would you say your Waxi's were worth it?for what they are I think the price was highwe'll see how long they last
mein k/omadesi fell for the red wing meme, i bought a pair of iron rangers almost 2 years ago for work boots, they are the worst boots i have ever had, the leather is shit, they are horribly uncomfortable even with inserts, and fucking miserable in the cold. i've spent i don't even know how long wearing unlined combat, and steel toe work boots in all types of weather and the iron rangers are fucking awful.please recommend me some good work boots, i have had danner's in the past and don't feel like they have the longevity to warrant the cost.
>>51649398just get surplus boots, dudelike 30-40 dollars for leather boots in decent condition with new outsoles if you spend that much money on kicks, you should look it up first to see what its made of
>>51649420i did, i watched a fuck load of reviews, tear down and, restoration videos. since i bought them i've decided that the only reason people recommend them is to justify what they spent on them. i wouldn't give the steam off my piss for another pair.i used to wear Altamas, but they aren't made in the states anymore and it looks like quality has suffered a lot
>>51640675where to cop the black pair?
>>51637464Some surplus boots my brother got from a kommandostore boot ball that he's bought like 8 draws of now and recieved the same boots every time. I think they're German, and they're pretty comfortable.
>>51649482>Altamas):I got a pair for my friend like 4-5 years ago, he wears them as his everyday and they've held up. I'm sorry to hear the quality goes down
anyone got a recommendation for winter/snow boots? ~100 surpshit is fine. I'm in CO so hiking and snow.
>>51649804i was buying them in the early naughts, could not be beat for $100, i don't even know where to find them anymore, the last surplus store near me closed years ago and the Altamas weren't as nice when i went to look at them
>>51649615they are french ranger double buckles there are lots of fakes and repros i got mine shipped from french ebay it was a pain good luck getting them for under 150
>>51637464I unironically own a pair of those.
>>51640880How does it feel to be on the FBI's most wanted?
>>51650327a fool and his money...
Chelsea chads, rise up. My daily drivers
Monkey style great in urban and jungle warfare
I got them for Xmas, better than nothing I suppose.
>>51643809I haven't wore them for two weeks because one of them smells like mildew.>>51646764Redwing Iron Rangers
>>51652375I have those same boots. But they're in my closet in the original packaging collecting dust.
>>51653963you're not supposed to eat em idiot, you wear em!
>>51642959No people still wear them here in texas but it's mostly older people who wear them regularly for everyday stuff. Others wear them when they go out or for specific events. I was thinking about buying a pair myself but don't have the cash to buy some right now
>>51644518I've had these boots for 6 years now and they barely started show some cracks in the leather. But that's due to negligence.
>>51639215You rollerskate....what a faggot
>>51648533I must have those
>>51653916Sleeping bag shoes? Are they at least comfortable
>>51647311A really well fitted pair that you break in carefully feels good, but just throwing on cowboy boots sucks
>>51650974What kind of pants/jeans do you wear with these
>>51643821hell yeah bro.. that's my intention. >>51646722thanks for that insight. Definitely aware of that aspect of being "that guy". It's going to be less function and more fashion in my case, but more out of respect of the boots, and how it ties into my style. Although who am I kidding, I'll probably end up looking like travis bickle. >>51654029thanks for that insight
>>51650275Anyone have reccs for a boot similar aesthetically to that one?
>>51637464I lost my boots, but I got the ingrown toenail removed
>>51654294ya, theyre reebok beatniks
>>51638269lmao are those uggs
>>51654315Levi's 511 Rinsed Playa wash, darker muted blue complements the relatively light leather of the boot
>>51654482>>51654315Guess I could post a pic
>>51638391Are you a mole-man?
>>51642959we wear cowboy boots all the time down here. you'd fit right in.you're welcome to come, unlike those greasy californians.
>>51654357some cowboy boots are made for function, contrary to what those guys are saying. it's pretty much universal for construction guys around here. they're the flat-toed kind though.
>>51637464Just got these in a week ago, I've only worn them a couple times walking around the neighborhood but they are very comfortable and regulate temperature well
>Been wearing cowboy boots since i was a kid>Worked in them, dated in them>Loved cowboy boots>Join military>Leg below knee is fucked>Can't take single step in cowboy boots without pain>Fuck i miss my boots...Anything that comes close to replacing them bros... i miss my cowboy boots, but they fucking hurt to wear after leg went to shit. Anything similar to style while being comfy enough for someone with major ankle, foot, and leg injuries?
Get firefighter/Logger boots they always last long
>>51656178do you just jizz on your mirror or day or what
>>51654357Fuck no stay in your place
>>51637469>No I don't shoot my guns>Why would I wear shoes I boughtNice trainers. You gonna wear them someday Tiffany?
>>51654405Remove the toe too
>>51649962I used to get the exospeeds and exospeed 2s before altama rebranded. Those boots were the most comfortable boots my shit feet have ever worn. Haven’t been able to find a good replacement since.
>>51649793Pretty sure they're Dutch. Looks like you have some NL DPM there as well?
>>51657674he doesn't train with this dummy, that's going out shoes, men now a days don't wear leather shoes.
>>516407027k boots, thank you balenciaga.
>>51639170>FashionableWhere and when because they are about as fashionable as a trench coat and fedora these days bucko
>>51658012have we gotten old? nothing seems as good as it used to be.
>>51654792non Texan detected, jew yorkers are as bad as califagsgo back
>>51659338i've been saying it for years, a new yorker is just a greasier model of californicator
>>51655824Biker boots, maybe?
Got a pair of these. They feel pretty good so far.
Anyone own a pair or nicks, would anyone suggest a nice pair that would be good for general outdoor work/hiking. I'm looking for a good work boot but also I like one that scratches the effay part of me
>>51659563I had a pair of these, the insides fell apart in less than a year of very light walking. Very disappointing
>>51650863>tfw you think we're not all on a list>tfw I have no face
>>51658561Idk, they seem pretty German to me. And I got one of the Dutch sting long range packs from the kommandostore black Friday balls.
Anyone have any experience with Lems? I fell for the barefoot meme years ago and now normal shoes feel like shit to me
>>51658561Ah, you're right. On second glance they are the Bundeswehr variant, the Dutch ones differ slightly. They're both produced by Haix.
>>51660612Not him, but square toe cowboy boots are the original style dumbass. Pointy toe was made popular by more recent city folk. Imagine being this silly
>>51660612>>square toe>faggot>>51660900>Pointy toe was made popular by more recent city folk.imagine being this retarded
Rise and shine.
>>51637870I've used construction adhesive to fix splits like that. Caveat: do not apply too much. The adhesive will expand as it dries and your shoe will bow. Instead, apply a thin coat on both surfaces, clamp overnight.
>>51662076it’s issued boots i just had to fight with the fatass from the logistics corps about ordering a new pair when he was "busy"
>>51637464I have corcoran 1500 too but black
>using heavy as fuck boots instead of light trail runners or low hiking bootsngmia pound on your foot is worth 5 pounds on your back
>>51665000trips don't lie
>>51637464Lowa Camino GTX. Only had them for a few months but best boots I've ever owned. Also most expensive, so.
