What the hell century are you living in? You say it like you don't wear them as some niche market fashion statement; to which I call bullshit.Heritage pf flyers
were designed for running too but i'm pretty sure any podiatrist or physiotherapist would discourage you from playing sports in them. Camping or hiking in single leather soled wolverine 1000 miles or 721's is exactly the same as running in heritage pf flyers just because they were designed for sports.
And, being sold for $725 at boutiques like leffot, I certainly don't think they were designed for the average blue collar working man. Yeah yeah, Edmund Hillary still climbed everest in a pair of leather clunkers and your 721's will still do the job, but i'm pretty sure if Hillary had the chance between a pair of ll bean waterproof goretex lined good year welted hiking boots for an 1/8th of the price of some wolverine 721's which have fuck all ankle support and traction compared to the former, the reason anyone would choose 721's would be because they like the aesthetics and it's a fashion statement.
Your context sucks. Either your in it for the fashion and overcompensating your grizzledness...or your just dumb.
My point: Quit banging on about how you don't treat them like dress shoes and post more pictures of your vintage designed petite boots and embrace it. BAH! (I didn't actually mean that to be quite so burning but it's late, leave me alone...also...i may have taken on that handy advice about sno-sealing...but to the rest of it! bah!)
