I'm looking for boots, /fa/. What kind of boots do you guys wear? Should I get some Doc Martens?
I wear the same model 1460's as your pic, but I've used a sharpie on the yellow threading and it worked surprisingly well.
You didn't specify if you need them to be practical in cold weather/snow. All I can say is that these keep my feet relatively warm (this is coming from someone who has been wearing low-cut chucks through winters so take it with a grain of salt), but the sole will cause you to possibly fall on some ice so watch the fuck out if you do end up getting them
I'm mostly thinking for everyday wear or summer outdoors boots. I like the brown leather ones, personally. Pic related
Docs are good every day/beater shoes.
In my opinion, the only colourways you should consider are the classic or mono. Docs are tacky, but in a good way, if that makes sense. Anything else will just look cheap/like shit. Ultimately get what you want and don't take a bunch of degenerate fashion nerds' advice literally
Look into Redwing boots, they used to be discussed around here a lot but I don't own any. People did say to be wary if you have feet larger than a US 10 as they start to look like clown shoes.
Frye boots are pretty cool.
They're usually in lots of department stores so you should be able to find them discounted somewhere.
I thought the quality of Doc taildived a couple of years ago. Cheaper materials, poorer construction etc.
Looking to purchase an everyday boot myself, but something that wouldn't be uncomfortable to run in, if I had to.
are you all gayfags or something?
get decent boots op, ones you won't be ashamed to be seen in
does anyone own these? how do they hold up compared to other boots in the ~$300 range?
Need advices. Got theses one. So I was thinking about using a permanent black marker?
are these okay? i think im going to take the little flag off the laces; it looks silly
I have some 1460 Martens. Bought them two years ago in Navy Blue but they're black now because of the shoe polish.
Will be going for steel toed 11 hole Solovairs next
Flyer's boots military issues are a pretty good choice as well if you don't have 250$ to put in a pair of good boots.
Cost around 50-60 $ shipped in the US and feels like they will last for years.
I have these ones, and a pair of leather / canvas combat-inspired boots that I don't have a pic of. Perhaps looking at independent retailers, not mass-produced, you can get similar price better quality that way, and they're more unique.
Probably right. Those are way better then docs imo though.
This is what I wear 3 times a week tho
I'm cleaning and polishing them often. They look fine.
Made in England is way too expensive. If you want good boots made in england, go for a pair of Solovairs.
Or just go with the asian docs. They're fine too.
Every pair except the shell Alden's are a size 12. I am a 13 in regular sneakers.
Wolverine 1K probably fit the best, but the leather sole is so awful that I don't wear them anymore.
The Iron Rangers fit well after breaking in.
I regret sizing down a full size on the 875's. They are too narrow for my feet.
I probably should have gone with a 12.5 with the Indy boot, but they fit.
I went with 12.5 with the shell captoes, and they fit.
Wanted to get the Clark's Mali's in black, but impossible to find.
Anyone have any reccs for good black boots that are comfy? My feet are small (8.5 US), so its tough to find shoes in my size
i got 3989's from a thriftstore for like 4.99
they say made in england on the bottom
should i cut them and get new ones?
do i get the warrenty?
should i buy these or r.m williams chelsea boots
the brand of this boot is tiger of sweden
Depends what kind you're getting. You can size down if you're getting a rounded toe, but I got tapered and I'm between sizes so went for the half size bigger rather than smaller and they fit fine.
It's shitty because it offers no support, especially in the rain or on concrete. I didn't wear my 1K Miles a lot but, but I did do a lot of walking with them. Because of that, the soles have worn down, giving me little traction on smooth surfaces.
black skinny jeans are a staple in my wardrobe (male). what boots would look good with black skinny jeans?
They are not good outdoor boots. The tread is minimal and you will slip around easily on grass or dirt.
That being said they are kind of nice on ice or snow, especially if you waterproof them. The rubber grips way better than other tractionless shoes like vans. They were made to keep you from slipping around on a wet factory floor.
