I've been considering the Navy Hunt Boot for about a year now but just can't seem to pull the trigger on them. I have Alden Indys for my brown/reddish pair, Wolverine 1K for my black and was looking to break the standard a bit and add a pair in navy. It's been surprisingly hard to find reviews about them and without being able to try them on, I guess the decision is taking into account the longevity and fit over style. On top of that, when I see them in the marketplace, they tend to be new and at a severe discount. Does anyone have the Navy Hunt Boots and if so, how long have you had them and what are your impressions? Thanks!
I had the Navy hunt boots for about a year. Loved them at first as they fit very nice and just looked great, however over time they stretched to the point where they were unwearable and would hurt my Achilles if i spend a reasonable amount of time in them. That and the shaft stretched to the point where each end was touching when they were laced up. Boots still looked great but they just became extremely roomy. If anything I'd say go a half size down from your trench boot size
