A less fancy/more trashy collection:
Bog standard Doc Marten 1460, 90s/my highschool years vintage
DM 1914, made in england version
Demonia unknown model, glossy burgundy, faux steel toe
LL Bean Kata's
RW Iron Rangers (current fav, love the hawthorne leather)
Chippewa engineers (forget the model)
Is there such a thing as an indigo/indigo or indigo/black in the 100$US range (+/- 25$ let's say)? By way of example Blue Owl has some united stock dry goods ones that are clearanced that I like the look of, but the "narrow" cut that I think I'd need is sold out. In terms of fit I'd prefer slim straight or tapered with a little higher rise than say, Weird Guys.
Speaking of Weird Guys, I realize they're available in indigo/black "Midnight" for a bit more than my budget,...
Iron rangers in muleskinner arrived, AND fit like a glove
Seeing the waxed flesh boots over in the Viberg thread has made me wonder if you could get the hawthorne or choc. muleskinner leather to look like that with the application of something really stiff like otter wax. Not that I'm considering doing it on brand new ones, though.
