Broke out the Christmas gift a day early. These black boots are sweet, perfect for some Christmas Eve festivities.

Those black boots always look nice!

Got my roughouts right before Christmas, thanks George and Tony! Initially, I wasn't sure if I was going to keep them but after looking at them in person and trying them on, I'm sold on them. First wear:



FYI, that small speck isn't on the right boot. It's just my iphone 5 camera messed up lens

I have been rocking the roughout's quote a bit recently. I like the way they look with denim, they are pretty sweet! I can't wait to see how they wear in.

Definitely agree, decided to wear jeans to work even though it's supposed to be business casual just so I could wear the roughouts today haha 😁

Hey all, 

 
I am looking into buying the trench boot cap and I was reading this thread that they are TSS. Normally I wear size 8.5-9 but when I tried on the Wolverine 1000 Mile boots in size 8, they were too big.I was not able to try on the 7.5 because no store carries that size but I assume they will fit.
 
 What size should I go with trench boot then?

broad assumption is 8.5, but it really depends on your foot, it could somehow be a 9.  1k mile size will give people a gauge, but not enough.  i wear an 8(just a touch big) in 1k's with a narrow foot, and 8.5 cap-toe trench fit perfect.  shallower toe box on the trench, but more side-to-side room.  the cxl on the trench is also quite a bit thicker, but should break in just as perfect.

Anecdotally, I'm an 8.5D in 1000ks, a 9D on the Barrie and Trubalance, and take a 9 in OSB trench boots (but an 8.5 in the OSB beefrolls).

I am an 8d TTS. To reinforce the fact that all feet are different, I am a 7.5d in Barrie, and find that an 8d works best for me in the trench boot. I have two trenches. The first one I bought was a 7.5d (they were out of 8d and I was impatient). They work, and don't hurt, but I went with an 8d when I ordered the second. I prefer the 8d fit. Long story short, the trench fits tts for me.

^^ So interesting how every foot is slightly different...I am an 8.5D TTS and take an 8D in Alden Barrie. I tried an 8.5 in the Trench and my foot swam in it; meaning an 8 fit perfectly. I think my foot is truly an 8.25 D/E as I am right on the cusp of both width and length...

^^ Interesting how, on the contrary, our feet sound identical Ryden! haha

I'm a 9.5 in the field boot, which I picked up expecting to wear with light and mid weight socks. After stretching, they are definitely heavy sock boots (given the cold and dry fall/winter in Vancouver, this is an excellent development). I went with 9.5 because while the width felt good on a size 9 (in other words, tight at the sides but with obvious give), my big toe was mighty close to the front edge. If I pick up a pair of CXL vibram trail oxfords in 9 for spring/summer wear (light to no socks), can I count on the toe area to stretch enough to be comfortable?

Also, after handling a pair of trench boots in person, I regret these not being around when I was looking for a service style boot a couple of years back. The construction is incredibly solid, and in black these are pure supervillain status. These are marching-into-inhospitable-country-and-leaving-nothing-behind-but-ashes-and-tears boots. These are the boots you would wear when deciding how much salt to plow into their earth. This are "new word for desolation and a nightmare figure for children in the coming centuries" boots.

Suddenly I feel a lot better about my black trench pre-order. Now I just need to decide to get some black denim to go with them..

You got nothing to worry about, all the pics of the black trenches show how bad ass those boots are haha. It's just the waiting. Hopefully you'll get them soon!
