I am torn between the IR and the 1Kers. Does anyone happen to have side by side pictures comparing the 2?
I want to go for the more rugged look. Not really gonna wear anything dressy, just casual w/ slim jeans.
Well, the two are completly different IMO.
Although they are both work boots the 1ks are a lot more dressed up.
I didn't buy the 1Ks to replace my IR. The IR are a lot more rugged and can take a serious beating. I use those for snow and rain. They have seen a lot of mud and dirt over the years, and allways clean up nice. (Not cleand up in photos tho).
I'm not so sure the 1Ks will hold up as well with the same kind of abuse.
If you plan on using them in all kinds of weather I'd say go for the IR.
If you want a sleeker work boot (as far as those goes) I'd say go for the 1Ks.
If you need both, get both.
Sorry about the pics. I don't have the time at the moment to do this properly.
I'll see later if I have the time to clean up the IR's and snap a few pictures for you.
Also I don't have any fitpics of these, and I have not started using the 1Ks yet.
