Boots?

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I was wondering what boots are your favorites? What do you rock? I am also looking for some nice ones, not timbs, not cowboy, but something more along these lines: I really want leather, not rubber soles though.

I have some Bally boots, one pair of really nice brown leather ones I've been unable to figure out the make of (bought at consignment place), a pair of Mezlan boots that are typically mistaken for being more expensive than they were, and a bunch of pairs of really shitty ass boots I bought at thrift stores for $.50 to $5.00 that look fine when properly polished and tended to and are good for rainy day or workhorse wear. I'd have nicer stuff if I wasn't hopelessly broke and half-starved. I advise going to a thrift store and copping some rocker dad's castoffs from when he thought he was Paul McCartney for a minute.

Looks like a bootie with elastic gores at the sides. Are you talking about the brown pair?

I have a pair of RL Bierley boots (brown, "waxy" leather, side gores, rubber sole) that I wear with jeans a lot. There's also something to be said for old doc martens. Maybe Frye boots would fit your specs. My gf has a pair, though she does not own a motorcycle. They look really good once they're broken in and a little busted. I think they have combination leather/rubber soles, but none of the heavy lugs I think you're trying to avoid. Of course, orbitingio has a good point that a thrift store is a great place to find boots, long as you're comfortable walking in a dead man's shoes.

Definitely not the boots in the Nudie picture, but http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....07&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....71&rd=1 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....96&rd=1 I think all three of those look good.

John Varvatos boots look really good with jeans. The second pair that Brian posted are especially good. Other companies making very masculine looking boots are Dries van Noten and Costume National (my personal favorite - Varvatos is a close second.) Just make sure that the leather is either napped (and not that glove soft suede crap) waxed, or distressed leather.

I second that opinion.

Brian, for the 2nd pair you posted, would you wear them with the jeans inside or outside the boots (the boot tops look loose enough to tuck your jeans in them)? What's the convention?

Oui . Marc Guyot does the same with slightly different buttons and leathers.
