a forum for all your cool boots/shoes. 


thought this would start it off nicely. these were my introduction to the world of denimbro shoes. I wish I still had them, but my feet grew and I had to sell em off. one day I'll get another pair.

We were visiting an antique dealer couple of weeks ago and he was wearing a great pair
of Redwings, he didn't know how old but said at least 20 years he thought....

I found a few months ago most of a pair of pants, they were cut up in about 6 pieces^^^I never found any part of the waistband...just legs and crotch area. I dig the monster  selvage!

Not near as cool as Sansome's pair, but here are my Iron Rangers. I think I have had them about a year or so maybe? My first 'nice' pair of boots, I have had plenty of shit-kickers and I think every boy who grows up in Oklahoma has a pair of Justin Ropers at some point in his life... but this is the first pair I bought for myself.

so, I have weird feet. the alden modified last is apparently the best option for my foot. Which I was able to try at molded shoe NYC in december of last year. I need some dress shoes ( I dont even own a black pair of leather shoes anymore...which is sad and stupid.) and I'm thinking about going that direction. but I digress.

When I was in Spokane about a year and a half ago, I was able to stop into White's and get sized for a pair of semi-dresses. they measured me out at 10.5C. they didn't have that size for me to try on, so they got a D width and put an insole in to demonstrate what a C width would fit like. This apparently should have worked on anyone with a normal sort of foot, but since I need more room in the toe area for my weirdness, I didn't know I was getting into a fit boondoggle that would take about a year from ordering the first pair of shoes to getting a pair I think will finally be right. I wont bore you with all the details of the boondoggle but it involved sending my 10.5Cs back to be "blocked out" cause they were hand lasted a little tight. Someone scratched them really bad and White's thought it would be a shame to repair it cause they were basically new. So they made me a new pair. this time they recommended I size up to 10.5D. That seemed ok at first, but they stretched out quite a bit and were uncomfortably loose. So we started talking rebuild on a custom 10.5C last with a D width toe.

I can't really believe how much White's helped me, and after all their hard work sorting me out, it actually ended up only costing me the shipping to Spokane from Greenville NC...and thats it. We originally talked about doing the rebuild for the cost of soles, but I received my boots with no invoice for the price of soles, and everyone I talked to on the phone said it was covered under warranty.
boot one:

boot two:

rebuild:


I used the opportunity to switch from the vibram 700 half sole to the leather sole.  When I visited the factory for a second time in sept. 2011 I was converted to a believer in their leather soled SDs( see picture below.). They're really very comfortable and I feel a lot more...nimble vs the vibrams. I highly recommend it.


So, my hat's off to White's. They're incredible and are supermen of the customer service realm and make a really damn fine boot.

Guys- can any of you help...

I really want a pair of the USMC service boots that WW11 impressions do.
http://www.wwiiimpressions.com/newusmccordovan.html

They're out of stock in my size and having contacted them, they need a further 100 or so orders before they're able to have another batch produced so realistically that ain't going to happen for a long long time.

Can you recommend any other sellers/makers of boots like this that are good quality yet affordable?

Try the website www.atthefront.com and www.whatpriceglory.com
I bought some M39 Type I Army boots from Juan at WWII Impressions and I LOVE them, but it was the last pair they had...they were sold out of every other size. I was really lucky they had my size in stock. Good luck in your search, I hope these websites help.

Found these late 40's or early 50's shoes by Penney's Towncraft.  Towncraft is probably the most common vintage stuff I find. These were just so unique, they don't even fit me (8.5, sigh) but I couldn't leave them behind.

that's a smart move Grant. the buckles are what always turned me off the RW engineers. yours look great btw. i just don't like the big logos that come on their buckles. i ended up going with the frye brandos; they look great but don't feel as durable or heavy as engineers i've owned in the past.

absolutely love these. they fit me best of any of my shoes and they're incredibly comfortable. I'm just concerned about how much life I'm gonna be able to squeeze out of the soles. I know resole time for white's is 2 weeks these days, but I dont think that includes shipping....

Absolutely beautiful. Great shape, too. Looks like they got worn a few times and then put away for 70+ years.

While having the pair I bought my girlfriend taunting me for a few weeks before I was able to sell them, I fell for these beautiful boots and had to have a pair for myself.

After 2 previous attempts at sizing, 5 shipping $ charges, I am into a 3rd pair that fit. I have hit them with a coat of Obeneuf's to get rid of that ugly new suede look.

The work cost me a paltry $55 total at Factory Finish in Dearborn, MI...they've got some Cat's Paws and Bilt Rite soles/heels in stock so I'm gonna get some other boots done by them soon.

Couple of pairs of WW2 Lotus field boots. Veldtschoen construction, waxy zug leather and bellows tongue make them as waterproof as a leather boot can be.

Often bought as private purchase boots by officers in the British Army; the furthest pair belonged to a Czech officer who fought with the Army.

Almost 70 years of on-off evo and still looking bulletproof...

Just got another pair of engineers back from Factory Finish. This time a pair of 1980's Carolina's that  I'd been wearing since the mid 90's. They got new bindings, leather mid-sole/half-sole and Cat's Paw Heels. They look and feel fantastic! Could resist wearing them before shooting a few pics.

It pains me to see this thread languishing, so...

If you'd have told me a year ago that a pair of suede chukkas would become a favourite, I'd have probably told you to jog on. Bought these crepe-soled Alfred Sargent boots specifically to flip and they're now well and truly part of the family:



The magisterial 'Skye' brogue boot from Crockett & Jones:



And an old pair of hard-as-nails Tricker's navvy boots, from when Tricker's boots were built to outlast their owners. No idea of the provenance of these; my favourite cobbler reckoned these were a good 50 years old "...and the rest" when I took these to him for a new sole:

Now that's a pair of Tricker's I could wear. No dumb collaboration with the latest on trend boutique for those bad 'uns. Very nice to see.

Beautiful, Grant.

I love all versions of the Iron Rangers, but recently the Roughout ones have become my favourite ones.

These were the pretty light coloured Hawthorne Muleskinner once, right? With initially a kind of yellowish colour? Not some JCrew brown roughout collab?

There are so many ways to interpret size and I may have mislead everyone.
I used to wear UK 7.5 before my accident or 8 if slim fitting but my feet have spread!
The Webbs have no label or markings but were bought as UK 8. I have some ALPS split calf hikers that are a 7.5 and I have measured both pairs internally using the 'Barleycorn', inch, and metric systems.
The 3 x length -25 that is I believe based on last size, gives me an ambiguous result less than 8
The Webbs are definitely longer than my 7.5 Hikers and I can still squeese into both pairs, but the Webbs are uncomfortably narrow and the hikers are a little short!
My Loake Richmonds are 8 EEE and comfortable The Webbs are I now believe to be a generous UK 7.5 and appear to be around a D fitting.
It is difficult to measure within the Webbs due to the bellows tongue but using a paper template I have arrived at 269 x 97mm  but the sizes do not allow for the rounding on the sides or heel.
So not only do I not know the size I do not know the finish.

Yeah, started out light but with a couple treatments of dubbing they've darkened considerably.

Can I get some recommendations for work socks, both ankle and boot? Preferably something thick for the winter.

Wigwam Ingenius are great work boot socks.  You also may want to try a pair of Thorlo Thick Cushion Combat Boot socks - you can't go wrong with over-the-calf socks, which will prevent drooping.

My one-of-a-kind RC's are aging very well.
