I've tried various shoes when it's icy and have gone back to Docs. For wet weather anything with a Dainite sole is fine, but not on ice.

jesus christ lol..can u scroll up a bit? I have those exact same boots, mine are dark brown, tho. they fit pretty narrow, about the same as CP's do, so size up at least half a size if you got wider feet.

I got narrow feet, so TTS? I am asking because I have seen somewhere they come 1/2 larger

Thanks guys, i might just pick up a pair then... ebay best bet?  I've been wearing the h&m boots in the meantime haha.  Death on ice though.

pretty easy to find docs on discount. i've gone with onlineshoes.com a couple times, they always have some kind of 20% deal or something. also, vibram/heel tap your hmmmmm's, makes a world of difference.
post #4926 of 5246

Yeah, I don't know if I want to vibram such a cheap shoe but I was going to heel tap them as soon as I can (cobbler down the street works whack hours).

 

Kinda want metal heel taps even though they'll do nothing for traction...

 

Thx art

it's a necessity here... stepping on a wet metal grate on the sidewalk with leather sole = death. it makes them feel a bit more substantial too which is nice. but yeah it costs almost as much as the boots...

Yeah I know I live a few hours north of you haha

 

It's melted since but I went out to a bar w/ a friend wearing (real) sidezips after it snowed + melted + froze and basically had to have her tow me there.

Hey guys, just started reading this thread and loving it so far. Thought I'd share my only sf worthy boots (thanks for the hookup shah). My feet have a pretty low arch and the front is especially flat, so I was wondering if anyone had suggestions of insoles that might help me "fill out" the shoe a bit more, like when they have trees in?

Ebay is good, in the UK at least Amazon frequently has Docs cheap too.

Anyone know how do Florsheim boots fit? I'm usually a size 9 in most shoes (41 in Common Projects, 42 in MMM, 9 in Vans, 9 in Nike Lunar Glides, 8-8.5 in Converse). I have wider feet than average also!

Thanks!

Allright, so I've gotten myself a pair of MOMAs and I quite like them. Still getting used to leather soled shoes, but they've broken in nicely by now. But two things are troubling me. First of all, how do I care for them? Most info I have found has been either on dress shoes/Aldens and polishing them to a sheen or snowsealing Redwings. I am searching for some kind of oil/cream/wax/whatever to moisten the leather without changing the colours drastically/giving them too much sheen. Any particular recommendations? Secondly, the laces are rather thin and seem to deform/rip through the eyelets a bit. Is there a way to stop this other than changing laces/tying the shoes looser?

Agreed. Visit Graham Fowler.

Hope this post belongs here, I spend most of my time in the MC section of SF but think this question is more targeted to SW&D. I am looking to purchase some new shoes that I can wear with my more casual fits. I split my time pretty evenly between jeans, cords and chinos and wear sweaters, buttondown shirts, cardigans etc. Looking for shoes (not sneakers) that can go well with these, probably under $600 or so.

Had thought about an Alden Indy boot but want something more wearable in the hot weather. I also nixed the Alden shell offerings for the same reason. Some ideas that I have been kicking around:

- Alden snuff suede chukka
- Carmina suede sand NST from the Armoury (http://www.thearmourystore.com/shoes/carmina-simpson-80105-oxford-punched-captoe-calf-tan-3117)
- Alden navy suede bluchers from LS (http://leathersoulhawaii.com/2010/07/27/alden-shoes-navy-suede-ptb-x-2-lsw-lsbh/)

Any other ideas? Not wed to suede.
