BTW, Chestnut is not discontinued. See Nordstrom and Amazon for fresh shipments of Beckmans in Chestnut. I just grabbed a pair that were made just 2 months ago.
Good to know on both accounts. I appreciate it!
Would you mind posting some comparison photos that show the Chestnut and Copper Yuma leather next to eachother? I'm intrigued.
i find the iron ranger narrow,so half a size down would be much better IMO.
The first time I tried them on I went crisscross through all the hooks and they didn't feel well. The store owner told me to skip the top lace and I was able to get a more comfortable fit but the back of the boot was still digging in if ever so slightly. Haven't tried on the Beckman but I think I might get it here in Australia for $345 when they have my size in 2 weeks (since it has a more rain-friendly sole) . I'm going to America at the end of the year but I want to be able to break into them before then so I'll have a better experience wearing them there.
One more question: If I only had one boot that can be worn with jeans, chinos and grey flannel trousers and can also be worn all year round, are Black Cherry Beckman GT the most versatile choice?
I tried on the Iron Rangers in the picture attached and it looks great but I'm just a bit worried the toe is too round and rugged, causing it to be less versatile. I'm guessing the Beckman may have a similar issue?
These Iron Rangers are the dream after the rubber resole.
I've had trouble deciding between the IR and Beckman for months. The IR personally looks slightly better and less expensive but the Beckman has the rubber sole for rainy days.
On the other hand, this is like the best of both worlds!
