New boots for a new semester

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

So i've been saving up some cash for clothes over the summer and it's come time to decide what i want to spend it on.  Last semester i pretty much wore my Clarks Beesewax leather desert boots religiously, and they're pretty worn (still look decent though, in a rough way.)  

 

I'll probably be wearing APC new standards with an assortment of different shirts.  I bought some original GATs and some sand desert boots for partying, but i'm looking at buying either Red Wing Gentleman travelers or some Alden Indies for school wear (I'll probably cycle in the GATs and DBs for variety to).  Are the Indies worth the extra money over the GT's?  I honestly love both pairs of boots and can't seem to decide which to buy.

Cool story. Try one of the threads for either Alden or Red Wing.

Honestly, they are both good, so it is going to come down to really which one you like better. There are really an insane amount of options in a variety of prices ranges (I'd say anywhere from $200-$500) for nice boots (in my opinion). I can warn you that the GT's require a fairly significant amount of break in, most threads on these will agree. The Indy boots and others less so.

Some other options if you have not considered them:

Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots:
