What's the appeal of the wings/horns x dayton service boots - Page 128

post #1906 of 1917
Are they actually taking a return? I still really want a pair of the service boots... just don't feel like dealing with the hassle. I think I might give them a chance though, though not three, if they'd actually stand by a return for defect.

Get over Dayton and spend your money elsewhere. This is coming from someone who went through crap getting a pair, making costly international calls and getting them shipped up and down from one part of the world to another.

Guess what, after a month I get a phone call telling me that they have stretched the left boot. I tell them that's not the problem as I have repeatedly stated over the phone and on e mail. Another month passes and I get the boots back. Re-lasted boot. Nice. Except.. the left foot is stretched noticeably. Left and right don't even look the same anymore. The left foot now not only is roomy, it looks swollen.

 

Holy shit.


Those people must be incompetent or something.

as the owner of a pair of service boots that were thankfully not botched (the workmanship still leaves much to be desired), i can safely say that the boots are not really worth the money. they're fucking heavy as hell. their only purpose in my wardrobe is as snow boots. invest your money in a better pair of boots.

For those who own these boots, do you find it uncomfortable to wear? Because they don't have insoles in them to me the boots just feels so hard, needs more cushion. Would getting them resoled help? I have used an insole but there is not enough room in the front of the boot.

Just thought I'd chime in since Dayton took a well-deserved (at the time) beating at points in this thread for their QC and customer service. I've been looking for some new boots for a while and was considering Dayton, Alden, 1000 miles, Red Wing, etc. Ended up choosing Dayton largely because I'm local and wanted to support a 65 year old Vancouver company. 

 

They responded to my emails very quickly, even late at night. Went into the store and got sized up perfectly. They were ready in less time than they told me. And I've had them for a month or so and have noticed no issues with the build quality at all. Leather is great. Fit is perfect and I find them quite comfortable once broken in (took a couple hours). The topy on the sole is stitched on now and the heel is nailed down. Really love the shape. Considering getting another pair in charcoal nubuck sometime down the road. 

 

At 500 bucks, they're getting up there in price, unfortunately. Got mine for $425, which is a bit more reasonable, and I'm definitely happy with them at that price. 

 

Maybe they're starting to work out their issues from a couple years ago. Just my two cents.

I wear mine without insoles and I have flat feet.

They are very comfortable now.

I've worn them pretty solid for about 3 years now.

PSA: Dayton Service Boots on Massdrop, $399 if they meet a certain amount. The nubuck black with leather sole could be a nice pickup. Despite all the stuff that went down in this thread, they are a handsome boot...

edit: black only comes with Vibran sole. Still, not bad.

When do these things go on sale? April each year? I know there's a lot of bad blood here but really want some of those charcoal nubuck service boots...

Hopefully I can get a pair before 2015.

Update :

Christmas is probably coming a few days late this year. Hopefully i dont get a lump of coal.

My pair from Dayton are on the way. 87 days (12+ weeks) from order date to shipping confirmation. Just to give an idea of some of the current wait times.
