Motorcycle Boots question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Anyone know where i can find standard Motorcycle Engineer boots (with the buckled strap across the top) in a NON-OIL/GREASE leather (aka normal black leather that can be polished) vintage ones made through at least the 60s (and maybe 70s) were of this normal leather but i cant seem to find any in my size (i've been looking for 5+ years). so if i can get new ones that would be fine. my oil leather steeltoe ones are ok, they're functional but i'd like a normal leather pair as well.

I have no idea what any of that means. I'm pretty sure I can't help you, but if you feel like elaborating I'd be up for reading it.

How's about these ones, or these ones? I think Frye makes non-greasy ones, too, but they'd probably be twice the price or more.

Again, what is this greasy leather? I've got a whole lot of boots from a whole lot of decades and a whole lot of makes (well, between me, my old man, and my brother, anyways). I'd be glad to try to figure out which is which if you somebody tells me how. Is it like the waxy surface that some crappy brands have? Because none of mine have that (but, no, I've never tried polishing them).

The greasy leather surface is like that on your standard pair of (grunge style, not fetish or skinhead style) Doc Martens, for example - as opposed to the hard-finished shiny boot leather on army boots.

Gotcha. Never came across any engineer boots like that. Sorry.

Nick, yea i just found that Caboots site on fri afternoon. they look pretty good (and cheap) , i esp like the wood inlay between the sole and insole. i saw a *perfect* vintage pair on ebay, but it was a huge 1/2" too small for me.
