Hi,

I found a couple of good posts on the leather vs. rubber sole topic!

Thank God Baxter redid their site. The HB looks really nice. I'm trying hard to rationalize a seventh pair of boots.

Cheers

My wife and I are wearing our boots right now...she looks smashing in them. I'll take some pics later tonight.

Make sure she's only wearing the boots in the pics

It would be stylish enough for any setting, and yet rugged enough to withstand harsh environments (public bars, etc).

I think I will email Steve of Nungar right now...

** I emailed RM Williams about this. No Navy leather

I just received my two pairs of Craftsman...1 Comfort in Chestnut and 1 Kangeroo in Black! So excited!!! Thanks everyone for your help and advice! The forum sizing tool really worked.

Congrats. Some nice pics would surely be appreciated by all of us. Cheers

Just received a pair of chestnut comfort craftsman. To answer my own question: they fit exactly like the blaxland, though I've only tried them in a store. Wonderful color too

I assume the Blaxland will fit the same as the regular Craftsman, since it's just the sole changing, and nothing inside the boot. It's interesting that you find the regular Craftsman more comfortable than the Comfort, Stuart! I wonder if it's a result of more room inside the boot, or the leather sole itself. If anyone has experience with the feel of a regular Craftsman vs. the Blaxland, please let me know! Thanks! Jeff
Regarding Comfort versus regular Craftsman, I had the same issue. I ended up selling, much to my chagrin, my pair of CC as the fit was just too different from the regular - wearing today actually their replacement, rubber-soled standard Craftsman in claret.

I tried on Craftsman and Comfort Craftsman in the store and was told to go up one widt on the CC. Just received a pair from Nungar and are liking them very much. I am used to wearing Blundstones a lot and the Craftsman was just too stiff feeling to me for everyday wear compared to what I'm used to. I find the CC to be very comfortable. Only problem is I want to wear them everyday but need another pair to rotate.

I will be getting a pair of CC for daily wear. But I have a few questions before my purchase.

Which type of leather will last the longest in extreme weather, 90+ heat to a frigid -20F? I will try my best to not wear these when it is rain or snow

My workplace requires business attire. So I only wear my black or navy pants to work. Would a pair of black CC would work best with the colors of my pants? Would that same pair work with a pair of dark blue jeans?

As I've said before, my perfectly fitting CC are 9.5 H and my just as perfectly fitting leather-soled Macquaries with non-comfort innersoles are 9.5 G.

About a second pair: if you intend to be an everyday wearer then you need to rotate. Indulge yourself!

Cheers

In a week or two I'm going to the store in NYC to try on some RM Williams boots. If I like them, I'm a little afraid to wear them in the snow and bad weather so I thought about getting some Blundstones (60 series).

Does anyone know how they fit? True to size, wide, etc.?

Just got my Craftsman in Chestnut Yearling - leather sole (might re-sole it with rubber later, but wanted to see what a leather soled shoe is like first). Pics to come if they're wanted.

I'm a bit of a newbie, so can someone explain why it's important to rotate boots with another pair? What's wrong with wearing them every day? Do they need time to breath between wearings for some reason?
