Glad i found this thread as i am in the same situation.. These are the 3 I think I have slimmed my choices down to. They all have very high reviews, except the Eddie Bauer which is a new model but the old model was rated very high. The Woolrich can be found new for around $300 which makes all of these in the same price range and im OK with. The LL Bean seems to be the most highly rated with Woolrich having mixed reviews (80% good). I would like to have one that...

update: So I have gotten the Frye Walter in DK Brown that i posted earlier. Love the style, color, fit. They even feel very high quality but the leather is so soft soft it scratches VERY easily. My fingernail left a scuff taking it out the box :/. Any way to prevent this? I purchased some Leather Honey after doing some research on a good conditioner. After applying and letting it dry over night, one of my boot is slightly darker brown than the other, if you stare you...

Im going to the Frye store to try them out tomorrow. No matter what else i look at the Frye Walter style i like the most. But ive come across one more issue after reading one the previous comments. Snow! I live in NYC and it may not snow all winter but it usually does a few times and freezing temperatures leaves ice everywear. I read these could be dangerous on ice. I looked up Vibram Soles, does it matter what kind or will a $10 set from amazon work fine. Any help is...

TBH, it is one of my bigger concerns. Ive never spent this much on footwear before but I can afford it now. So im think I could buy these and they last atleast 3+ years (which is what i want) OR I can buy a new a pair of lets say Steve Madden every year.

I bet they do, but i guess i shouldve mentioned price range. I cant really justify $500 on boots unless they would last a lifetime especially on my first my pair. Macys has the Frye abbove for $308 plus a coupon and and a gift card i have i can get them for like $250 maybe less....how many year would a boot like these last with 3-5 times a week usage (less in the summer) and proper treatment? i guess that would be my biggest question. Thanks

Do you guys buy jeans a little longer than you size (ex. you wear 32, but buy 33/34) to cuff the bottom and maintain length? Some people seem like they have awesome cuffs and the way it falls over their footwear it so nice
