I've had the Butteros for 2 years and have worn them in all conditions. Very solid boots. I've replaced the heels twice but the soles are still going strong. I use Obenauf and do use shoe trees. I expect to get many more years of wear out of these boots. The leather is very substantial.
Hands down superior to the Frye's IMO.
Just tried to order the 7.0 Buttero's and they are sold out.
Hopefully they will restock soon? Is Barney's the only place to get?
I may just suck it up and pick up the W&H boots.
Based on a size 8 Converse and 9 Nikes, what size would be in w&H?
for insoles I was using some cheap shit for a while, but someone on sufu directed me to Tacco leather insoles and the deluxe version fits my feet great. Get a size 10 mens insole for size 41 Buttero boots. (I ordered them from The corner cobbler website but I think other places have them)
