Look at Allen Edmonds or Alden.  They're slightly more expensive but will last a lifetime.

Iron Rangers are solid boots, but I am a big fan of White's Semi Dress boots myself.

Tricker's are nice.  I like those white's posted above as well.

None of these are as well-made.  Actually maybe buttero.  They're nice boots but not really what he was asking for.

Paul Smiths mainline is definitely well made and much better than Iron Rangers and Buttero. I say the diffusion line PS is about the same as Iron Rangers, I mean IRs are tough but they aren't that "well" made.

Cheers for all the replies.

Those Whites are lovely, still look a little bit on the clunky side though.

I guess it depends what you mean by well-made RFX.  Most of those shoes are glued together I think.

uh everything he mentioned is at least as well made as a pair of red wings and looks about 100 times better.

oh. lol. i guess i was just thinking in terms of the welt shog[1].gif

post #4781 of 5233
welt talk is hendrix' department but all those brands are made in italy i believe (except ndc is belgium). I'm no expert but I've handled them all and owned ndc's which were tough as nails.

From PS? The mainline is still Blake/Rapid stitched iirc. Not sure if it has changed now. All my pairs are very well made, I'd say it's right there with Alden if not better.
post #4783 of 5233
all quite well-made. own a few pairs, lasting me a long time now.
post #4784 of 5233
Paul Smith mainline uses blake or blake rapid construction and is hand made in Italy. If that's not good quality, glued together Margiela isn't it either. Paul Smith also makes collaborations with C&J, Tricker's, John Lobb and other known English shoe manufacturers.
