Nick's Boots - Page 47

post #691 of 699

that is a complicated answer for me. as stated previously i spent 8 months rotating a pair of custom smoke jumpers, and a pair of off the shelf (close to my size, but not quite) farmer Ranchers for work. i can tell you the experience was not pleasant while my feet and ankles were reshaped to accommodate these 2 different types of boots, and Lasts. 8 months after and my smoke jumpers are just breaking in. and i can tolerate the farmer ranchers for a 12 hour shift. Whites quality is top notch including the 2 pairs of dress shoes i own. when i put the Nicks on the experience is completely different. comfortable out of the box, and 1 week in i have the boots fully laced and tight, with no deleterious effects associated with the whites boots. i just think my feet and ankles are already scarred from the wearing of the other boots, and there is no discomfort wearing the Nicks boots all day. can't guarantee everyone will have the same experience. whether they buy from Nick's, or Whites. the only advantage to Whites is the turnover time. quality and workmanship is the same more or less.

My Nicks At Work
post #695 of 699
I haven't posted in a while (been traveling for work). One of my work assignments was on a volcanic island for several months. I wore these hiking all over the island, and at the end of the trip they sorely needed a good oiling with Obenauf's. This first pic is after I had one boot oiled, and one just cleaned.



The second pic is after work today.



I'm going to have to send them in for a resoling soon, but I don't plan on a rebuild of the uppers at this time. I've had these for a year now, and they see a LOT of use on actual worksites. Took forever to break in, but now one of the most comfortable pairs I own. happy.gif

There are other details way back in this thread.

Just checked Zuriicks website and its down and Google says its permanently closed. Sad as they were great people and had a great line of their original stamped Nicks. Hope the guys have landed ok, without too many debts.

New England Outerwear has several pairs of Nick's Oxfords in Chromexcel from sizes 7.5 to 10 for 30% off (even though it only says 20%, it is actually 30%)      $275.16

The oxfords are all E width, and New England Outerwear has changed the sizing of these to match their handsewns, so it seems the size 10 Oxfords they have are actually a Nick's size 11 E.
