I never expected my thread on boots to take off just like that. Looks like fashion comabat boots would be the next purchase for me.

Jeff, there was a few pics on SF of the Vass boots on U-lasts. Absolutedly beautiful.

Can someone pick this issue up for me and I will paypal them? I really want it and have pretty much no way of getting my hands on it. Thanks in advance, feel free to PM me.....

About combat boots, I really like ones with straps on top. I like these trickers a lot, but for 330 bucks I would get a pair of indys because....Indiana Jones wore them......

I don't know if they make/have made combat boots per se (though I seem to remember seeing something similar), but they are a custom operation and with enough money I'm pretty sure they would do it.

Maybe I was thinking of these:

I've got a pair with straps on, the straps annoyed me at first but now I think they're a nice touch. Boots are one of my all time best bargains too, RL Polo with Goodyear welted sole and they were £20 from a Ralph Lauren outlet ( I think they were on clearance because they didn't have any laces!) .

a few of my old docs


another shot of the six holes. these are getting cleaned up for winter wear this year.



these are definately a bit clunkier than the rest of the boots in this thread but give it a few more seasons.

Can Docs be re-soled?

yes.

back in the day you could send them back to factory to be fixed.

a lot of newer ones are crap though so im not sure.

They're a tiny bit small but I still try to wear them every once in a while.
