Does viberg even have a model that looks close to that? I don't think they offer a comparable sole either. Regardless, those look fantastic. If you happen to find size 11 in your hunt, let me know!

Boondocker in the 2030 last would be pretty close, and I can't imagine a black wedge crepe sole being very hard to source...

Tricker's could probably do it, they made a really nice wedge sole for Norse Projects last year that wouldn't be too hard to turn into a boot:

Does anyone know if Buttero boots are re-solable?

These for example:

the ones you posted i'd say maybe

Most quality made shoes and boots are re-soleable by a good cobbler. Looking at these boots online, not sure what it is about them but I find them completely badass... Thoughts?

Has anyone bought a pair of Alexander Wang boots before? Comments on quality, fit, comfort?

They go great as a companion to my Clarks Desert Boots with the original crepe outsole.
i commend you for cramming so much hype into such a short paragraph ...

you did however forget to include fluff like "protection from the elements," "craftsmanship" and some broohaha with "heritage," "forefathers," "tradition" and so forth.

still, a nice effort.

Thinking someone in this thread might be able to help me, I'm looking to purchase a pair of Service Boots similar to the Wings + Horns x Dayton collab but not at that price point (and a little easier to find). I'm looking for something in a dark brown nubuck/suede. Closest I've found are probably the J Crew / Red Wing Iron Rangers but don't really like the reddish tinted sole.

I just picked these 1950's Distressed Common Projects Combat Boots off eBay for $187, pretty happy about the price.

Can you guys please recommend me some winter boots for Boston?

 

I'm an exchange student from Australia heading to Boston from January - June, and Sydney's winter is no where as cold (don't even snow) as Boston so I have no clue what kind of boots I'll need. Just looking for something that doesn't look ridiculous (like LL Bean - sorry supporters) and enable me to walk around comfortably as I'll be visiting places.

 

Any other tips to prepare me would be welcomed!

 

Thanks in advance!


It depends on the day. Last winter, we got a little over 2' of snow in one storm. I would suggest having a cheap beater pair to get you through the snowy days, and then have one or more nice pairs for when the sidewalks have been cleared of snow. Chippewa's can be had for quite cheap, and they don't look bad.

 

More important objectives for you will be to find some warm socks, a warm winter hat, the thickest gloves you can find, and a scarf. It can get as low as -10 degrees Celsius (or more) in January and February, so you need to place dressing warm above all else.
