I'm in the market for some boots!
was going to get these
they last for ages too
currently hating my new all stars cos they're clean as fuck looking
can I have them?
You can't even stand up.
all from a reclined position
i really like their boots
i might get some more - the soles wear out relatively quickly tho - that's something to bear in mind
i thought for the price that these would be long lasters
the pair that wore out, I did totally live in them, but i didn't think they lasted that long
can't give exact details i'm afraid
i think the soles are made from leather so waer quite quickly
this is what they say on their site
'Stay Well-heeled: Some of our longstanding customers resole their shoes when they first get them, to encourage the longevity of the shoe – as we all know rubber is more durable than leather being that it is a man-made material. This is a personal preference and not for everyone, however it is a way of preserving the sole. As with any natural fibre, it will scuff and change with every surface it encounters, not to mention wet conditions.'
i did have to get mine resoled and they don't look as nice now, i have another pair on theirs which i don't wear that often which are absolutely fine
Got about six months out of them. Distinctly unimpressed.
NOT THE BEES
If you're going to spend that much you can pick up brands like Red Wings for around that in the sale, and they're last much longer.
I'm going to america in a bit, they're about half the price over there
Makes me do a big cry how much cheaper everything can be over there.
I've never seen Red Wings for less than like £240.
and you periodically see them for 30-50% off at this time of year in places like Mr Porter, although they go incredibly quickly. Worth searching around though.
like boots. Brogue boots though? It's a no from me.
ooh drama in the shoe thread
Really nice shoes. I currently have some Pointer boots though and they're pretty much the best shoes I've ever owned.
Some decent stuff in the sale atm: http://www.folkclothing.com/men/mens-shoes
but i don't like the fact that they bend up at the front
yeah, that's what's slightly putting me off
but had to piss first ;)
these are quite similar but aren't as bent - http://www.dunelondon.com/cobbler-vintage-style-leather-brogue-boot-0472508480006511/?channel_code=1199&product_code=96441706&gclid=CKyOnLr8mMMCFUjlwgod_gUA2Q
not even THAT expensive, as long as they're hard wearing, which i've no idea if they are
another vote for DMs For Life
i've just done a bit more research and it seems like the easily wearable sole issue is a regular complaint
so i would say - get them if you are wearing pretty irregularly
don't get if for everyday use
cut-price russell brand shoes

and get some from Meermin: https://meermin.es/catalogo.php?idFamilia4=5&idFamilia3=1
I've got some of these and their just grand: https://meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4080
They sometimes sell their seconds through eBay for a reduced price, so worth checking that too.
Good shout wisdom
