Brown Beater Boots - Page 3

post #31 of 46
The Wolverine 100 mile boots are also a solid choice. I almost got these.

These are well reviewed and would make a good beater:

There's also Frye boots:

or Clarks.

 

I think any of these would fall into the beater category but would probably even look better with wear.  I currently have these on order:

Good luck!

I recently got Indys for this same purpose (On sale at JCrew for $315). I don't really like those BB boots much. You would be better off with the AEs.

I don't really like how the bison boots look that much, but I think I'm gonna get them as beater boots and maybe the dalton as dressier boots.

i do like to brown's better compare to the walnut, too. I also think that the brown version will grow better in time than walnut especially the Daltons.

I picked them up in store and didn't bother with any additional discount. They look like they'll be good for what I want them for.

As for a dress boot, I ended up ordering the Dalton in-store today to be delivered. I have a narrow foot, but the guy suggested I go with a D instead of a B. We'll see. As for the shoe, I was deciding between those and fifth street. I really liked the fifth street but then I realized that I have the strand in brown and they're basically the same thing... and they're a little too dressy to find reasons to wear those instead of the strand. However, I didn't like how the Daltons had an ORANGE pull on the back and apparently people complain about it breaking off. I do have time to decide if I'd like to keep them when they arrive.

In case anyone wanted pictures:

Here are the beater boots I bought yesterday (I needed them today in the rainy, cold weather):

Frye's Dakota Mid Lace is an excellent quality boot. Not MC-approved by any means, but you'll get incredible value and utility from them. 3 yrs of regular Fall/Winter wear in Chicago and they literally look as good as new.

To those who say that all American shoe making is goine, Frye have proven to be well made and comfortable. I love my three-year-old pair.

Frye is pretty decent for the money. Not the best, not the worst, but decent.

If you're a size 11.5US or 11UK, you can pick up these boots in 3 different colors for $350 each. Pretty damn good deal. Even though I just bought two boots, I'd probably pick up a pair if they were size 10.5UK. Too bad.

I bought the coffee color, but returned them as I was expecting a darker color. I bought the UK size 10.5, and they were a little smaller than I like in a boot (I am between a 11.5 and 12 US)

Why didn't you buy the size 11UK if you're a 11.5-12? Are the 10.5UK on the way back?
