Some of the lemon-yellow stitching along the front pockets is starting to loosen. They have a nice long inseam with chainstitched hems. Ready to be worn. - 12...

Thanks to both of you. What drove me to this thread was a recent opportunity to handle a pair of older Nick's Contenders, an 8" boot that may have been their Ranger model. They had 'Contenders' stamped on the boot shaft and, knowing only a little about Nick's, I thought that was the model. The boot had obviously been worn hard and it featured what I'm sure was one of their standard calf leathers. The leather had that tough character that others have described as sort of...
All very informative. No thoughts on Nick's Mckay stitching? I always associated McKay as a slightly inferior method of construction, used on a lot of mid-level Italian shoes like Gravati, lower-end A. Testoni, Mezlan. I'm surprised to find it used on sturdy American work boots. Perhaps not all McKay is equal - Nick's seems to drive home the point that their McKay involves multiple levels of stitching.
So are Nick's "Contender" line of boots with the McKay stitching of lower quality than their Welted boots? The descriptions of the two processes that have been lifted from their site are useful. But in comparing the McKay v. Welted boots, anyone care to comment on the bottom line in terms of durability, ease/cost of sole replacement, etc. ?
