Those are quite nice. Looks like he may have finished them with something to darken them up?

No idea, I have not handled that leather in person.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show) Not only do I love these boots, but I was looking at them on the RM Williams website and Mr. Porter last night (without having seen this) and almost pulled the trigger.  How would say the comfort is on these?  I might get them as a travel pair but would need to be able to walk quite a lot on them.  TIA.
They are supremely comfortable. I do a lot of daily walking now and the model is aptly named "comfort craftsman". Make sure you get the rubber sole though - the leather is fine but not as sneaker-like as the rubber insoles are.

I also suggest ordering through Bootsonline or a similar reseller while you can, it will be cheaper than Mr Porter or the RMW website (if you can even get suede with a comfort sole which you couldn't last time I looked on those sites).

^ Appreciate the info and especially the retailer recommendation

Looking to purchase a new winter boot.  How is the quality of Heschung?  From what little I can find, they appear to make their boots in either France or Hungary, with the ones from France being of better quality.

Hey guys - I just pick up a used pair of BedStu Boots. Not as nice as you all have but they are leather and need a good cleaning. I like the brand because they are very comfortable. 

These have got to me much different kind of leather so how would you go about cleaning them?   Would saddle soap completely destroy them?   LOL

 

Thanks

Thanks RogerP, good eye. They were definitely StC-inspired. Justin did a great job with the wax to color them.

Yessir. Iron Rangers Oxford mesa with stock vibram soles. This is my 2nd year with them and easily my 'goto' boots for all occasions. B#$%^ to break it in but once the leather is softened up, it conforms to your feet/angle and almost as comfortable as any sneakers out there. I've haven't done much with it other than once in a while clean up with saddle soap and I take it to my local RW store and they oil it for me. Tough as nails (and more).

Thanks man!!  Yeah I hate breaking in new shoes or boots!!  I have been on the lookout for a while now for a decent pre-owned pair.  I am just now learning how to clean and condition my western boots.  It's a lot of work but really satisfying to see the end result!!  Breaking in boots are the worst!   Thanks for the information

The definition of what a boot is varies from one man to the next. Here are a few examples of what I consider "boots".

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90


I am also of the opinion that boots should be tall (to the knee is perfect) and should be worn with the shaft fully exposed (tuck your jeans into them). I have felt this way for over 50 years, so it is doubtful that I will change now.
