General Boots Thread & Boot C/N Thread
Pic related. What you guys think about these?
Just a side note, does anyone have any good inspo for mens Chelsea boots??
General thoughts on round toe vs almond toe?
I have typically preferred almond toe up until now.
But it's hard to explain, some almond toe boots look like shit (usually desert boots with big protruding soles).
Thoughts on these? Brand is not the best but these seem like an ok pair.
palladium is a pretty good brand, actually. poet highly recommended them, and so do many other people who own them.
usually the people who hate on them just don't like the look and have never owned a pair.
i've handled a lot of palladium and they've always been fine quality for the price, but if you can get a discount they are a great ratio of price to quality.
look at lunarcore inspo wherever you can find it.
if you can find poet's fits, he wore his a lot.
so did that one guy with the curly hair who did some lunarcore fits in his bedroom.
idk where to find them though. search the archive?
Modern docs are synthetic shit that will fall apart with serious wear. They still make leather docs under the brand doc martens forever, but they're way overpriced.
I've been wearing a pair of Corcorans I got an a milsurp sale and the uppers still look great after 3 years of heavy wear.
NIGHTMARE MODE: Post something mfa would disapprove of.
these would be perfect if it werent for the giant bar down the back of them
w2c something similar without it
To a certain extent. As a rule, quality comes at a higher price.
A good example would be the difference a pair of Made in England Dr. Marten's boots and a regular pair of Dr. Marten's boots. They look identical, so why the price difference? The former are made by hand in England (which in itself drives the price up due to minimum wages and taxes) with better leather - you pay for both aspects. They will age much better and will last longer, due to better materials and workmanship.
The law of diminishing returns applies of course. A difference in quality probably isn't what sets a part a pair of boots that cost $ 1000 and a pair that cost $ 500. But if you're willing to pay extra - that'll be more than £ 60 for a pair of boots - you'll get a lot in return.
Maybe you should have a look at plebbit's goodyearwelt sub. Good place to start if you're just looking for a quality pair of boots that don't stand out too much. Just google 'goodyearwelt'.
So basically i shouldnt waste my money on boots worth £60?
Cheers ill give it a look.
Along time ago i had a collection of sites that people on /fa/ recommended. Ive now lost them sites due to it being along time ago. If anybody can throw out some brand names that sell good quality boots, id be grateful.
I dont yet own a pair of boots. I'm now at the stage where i feel i need to own a few pairs.
As I've stated in a previous post, if somebody could direct me to some companies that make good quality boots, id be grateful.
The only two sites i know of are Red Wing Iron Rangers, which seem to chunky for me, and Loakes, which i dislike due to all the small holes the boots have.

Where can i find Stacy Adams Madison toe cap boots outside of America ?
It's like they dont even exist anywhere else!
And I can't get them online because I'd need to try the size...
Fuck I guess I posted in the wrong thread, someone pls respond>>9271058
I got the britbong docs because the I've heard the chinese ones are made of shit. Although i'm so-so on the exposed leather.
I'd cop these if they weren't so fucking hard to get in Europe
Ridiculously cheap and I like how they look a lot
Any boots similar to this style?
These are cool as hell but I've heard people having problems ordering straight from Dayton and they are ridiculously expensive.
I can't wear most boots/winter shoes, because I am too skinny and they look like clown shoes.
right now I use nike air force one, they were the best option...
do they look ok? or which ones would be good for me?
I like these. But I've never had a pair of boots before, they're only River Island so I'm not sure about the quality of them. Any similar that's not like £150?
I also very much like >>9271233
or these, I'll send the pair I like least back to the store
I copped these a while ago from all saints
And these deserts
What should I cop next?
I'm thinking about getting a pair of chelsea boots
I supposed but they are readily available for hella cheap, do mention some other models if you know of any, I'm not that familiar with surplus as far as footwear goes.
Those are canadian parade boots, new ones are under 100 bucks and used (which imo look way better) range form like 30 to 50 bucks from what I saw online.
Any fit pics? How is the quality? Maybe compared to other leather boots you might have?
Those were my first pair, quality is good and they're a comfortable boot
Fit was tight once I first bought them but they moulded to my feet really quickly and I love them
If the price tag is not a problem then i suggest you cop
