How about that?
I have had a pair from them in different style. Very sturdy stuff!

I like this one quite a bit. I can't picture them with anything I own unfortunately

Tenue Di Nimes sells a gorgeous version of this boot in a navy that would pair better than the brown.

I was going to suggest you check out Sufu's 'shoes that look better with age' thread, but Pablo-T did the job for me.

Taco: Yes I own them and yes I can post pics. But it'll have to wait until the weekend as I'm out of town right now.

Belated response I know but you wouldn't have any photos of the M1904 marching shoe to upload yet?

damn are these you said are goodyear welted? They look good. Do they have a slim profile as appears on the photo?
post #24 of 34
Yes, they're Goodyear welted. The construction quality isn't the greatest (see the stitching) but you get what you pay for. I don't know if I'd say slim -- they are only offered in wide sizing. But I threw a thick insole in there and they fit fine and I have medium to narrow feet.

For $145 I'd say they're a good value and fun to watch the patina develop. Someone in Fedora Lounge posted theirs that have more wear:

Yeah, stitching looks kind of cheap.
post #26 of 34
if you want something similar to what you pictured and they are more like ww2. at least the 1st one is.
try "cochran boots" they made the original jump boot during the war and still do.

the second is present days boot.

Funny, just noticed last night that the Glenn is available from gimmie shoes for halfprice ($162.50) in brown and black.

The suede/smooth variation doesn't really do it for me, but YMMV.

What's wrong with Aldo?
post #29 of 34
Thanks for uploading they look great! Did you have to coat them or do you just leave them natural?
post #30 of 34
Right now they're just natural. At some point I"ll put some mink oil on them.
