Any of you guys need a resole yet? I've had my Krauses for, probably, a little more than 2 years now. I only wear them around town, no hiking or working in them, but I do wear them quite often. The right boot has a hole in the sole. I thought that was sorta quick to need a resole. Also, my local cobbler quoted me 165 for resoles with JR soles. Price seems high to me. Any opinions? Thanks.
Thats exactly what I expected. Thanks for the response.I've been researching online mtm a lot lately, and it seems like Proper Cloth or Luxire is the way to go... Proper Cloth if you value customer service, the guaranteed fit, and ease of selection. Luxire if value price point, fabric selection and ability to customize more. For my personality, Luxire fits the bill better... I just wish their website and description of fabric was better.
This thread is way too long to peruse through, so sorry for the question that I am sure has been asked before: In general, is it recommended to measure a well fitting shirt or go by body measurements when buying from Luxire for the first time? Im sure a common complaint is how hard it is to peruse fabrics on their site. However, it is even harder because they are all labeled differently. Any recommendations that can help me figure out what exactly the specs are of the...
My main take from this thread is 70% of W1k buyers have never owned a decent pair of dress shoes or boots.
Interesting... thanks guys!
Great, thanks for the response. I've never used Lexol... their normal conditioner I presume?You are incorrect, as was pointed out above.Well, I didnt think they were shell cordovan. I thought they were Dublin (I just transposed Essex with Dublin), which is vegetable tanned in a similar fashion to cordovan, although on a side hide (according to Horween). Hence why I thought I should care for them like a vegetable tanned cordovan, not a Chromexcel leather.I thought all...
Went to Horweens site, dont see any suggestion for what type of conditioner to use on the Essex leather on my Krause's. It seems to be a Shell Cordovan minus the shell, and side leather instead.... but I dont see anything recommending a conditioner for Shell Cordovan either. Any suggestions? Note: I am not going to Obenauf or Sno Seal these. I dont want to change the color, and they wont see very much inclement weather. This is what Alden recommends: ...
Cranes is incredibly informed, so listen to him. Thats obvious if you read the thread. That being said... In my opinion, you should size the boot for how you will use it. I am not using this boot like Crane, I am going to use it as a nice boot to wear around. I live in AZ and it wont see snow or rain, and pretty much only sidewalks. I dont need it to fit like a hiking boot, with a large toe box or some heel slip. I want it to fit like a dress shoe and the boot will...
Sure does. Was hoping for more opinions but no biggy.
Bump. Maybe I am missing it, but I see a lot of threads/talk on sizing of their mocs and boat shoes, but I cant find anything on boots. Do they true to size as per their website? Size down? Any consensus or opinions?
