Roy Boot or Wolverine 1000 mile? Both Alden/Context Roy and the 1000 mile are plain toe boots in horween chromexcel. Different soles (Roy Boot has the crepe sole) and toe shapes. Anyone have experience with both? Which is the better boot? It would be great to see a side by side of these two.
Anyone know of a source for Red Wing GT's in San Francisco (or anywhere in northern cal)? Looking for a place to try on.

Those longwings might be the nicest longwing I've ever seen. I love the whole configuration.
Bump. Vintage walkovers are excellent, lesser known shoes. I own a pair of vintage suede brogues by Walkover and they're terrific.
Nice find on the aldens, esp. the hand stitched NST's
Those FC's are incredible. Love the sugar canes too

I also wondered if they were Roys, but these have eyelets all the way up (Roys don't) Quote: Originally Posted by SLAB are those the Roy boots?

This is true of every button except the top-most button on the waistband. It's not yet tearing but i would say it's pretty close (i can see the white threads). I've worn these for less than two weeks and although still on the tight side they fit quite well and I would not want to size...
