Sorry, I don't want to shit this place up. Please return to sycophantism and baking unnecessarily waxed boots.
What experience do you have with White's Boots to claim that the materials and construction aren't superior to Wolverine's?
It's a completely different aesthetic, and the Christy soles weren't developed for made-in-Maine heritage boots; they're a legitimate work boot sole and have a history in that. If anything, they're more appropriate on these Vibergs, though again, it's a completely different aesthetic niche from that of Dainite.
Was the official OSB thread deleted?
What sort of socks do you wear normally? Moving to thicker wool socks could make it fit if it's a little large.
I thought their insoles were leather-wrapped fiberboard. Are the midsoles not leather either?
Do you see folks postering $100 sneakers in this thread? Your pictures are irrelevant here, as they were in the OSB thread. This thread was clearly made to avoid them. If you want to post storm pictures, do it elsewhere.
Rancourt seems to be referring to some of their boots as "Blake-welt stitch," though at first glance they look like Blake-rapid boots. I wasn't sure why they're using a welt, but then when I saw the bon-welted OSBs, I started wondering.
In the picture below, it seems that there's just a rubber slip sole with a pre-stitched welt glued on to look like a midsole that's been stitched to the slip sole.
My understanding is that the white midsole is referred to as a rubber slip sole. On boots like theseit's stitched to the midsole. The slip sole is then, I think, cemented to the outsole. My guess is that the cement is more effective for rubber on rubber, and that's why it's used. A thick outsole like that can't be easily stitched, so that's the next best thing.I'm also wondering if Rancourt is using fake stitching. On this...
