what shoe tree do you think would work better with chukkas and chelseas in the narrow side?

between these two options:

This company may have something close that your looking for.  I have a pair of shoes, well made and comfortable.  Good luck in your search

I don't think they really qualify as nubuck/roughout, but I definitely like my James boots, but I have gen 1's, they have a lot less stitching than the new models seem to.

mer6 yep your right, whats on the site now isnot roughout for sure. I was thinking the black James boots leather looked rough as in worn - that may suffice. Which color of James do you have?

They had black suede/leather boot on the site a few weeks ago. Not there now but it is for sale at Nordstrom. I always wanted the tan Davis boot. I thought that one would age nicely.

I have the Black Reyes oxford version they sold on Gilt. Comfortbale shoe, don't have to worry about marking it up. Its going to last a long time.

Enjoy your boots

I'm having some trouble with my Layer-0 boots and thought I'd ask for advice here.

The bottom layer of the leather sole keeps separating from the others. I think this is due to water getting in the crack and weakening the glue. I can't avoid the soles getting wet due to where I live being wet a lot of the time. I've taken them to a cobbler once and had them reglued and renailed, but they've come apart again, and this time I lost one of the nails [thumbdown] (It's possible he may not have done a very good job, I don't have access to any really exceptional cobblers in Memphis TN. The only place that might have a good one that I visit frequently is New Orleans.) Should I just get them topied? I don't want the sole to get thicker though. Could a good cobbler remove the bottommost layer of leather and replace it with topy? There is a rubber heel tap already.

Pictures for clearer explanation:

Layer-0 split heel construction


Picture of the sole, which parts are leather and which rubber


hopefully this shows the 3 layers the sole is made of


what's happening to my pair


Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated smile.gif

oof thats bad, looks like you may need a resole, can you go to another cobbler for a consult?

@eckblk has a lot of very high priced boots and he sends his to this place FJ western for any repairs or redye. I've taken my a1923 there and Jesse was a super nice guy and did a good job. Maybe give him a call and chat. IDK if he has an email and can see the pics.

good luck

Does anyone know a boot that is similar to this without the $800 price tag ? Maybe $500 and below. I'm looking for a standard looking work boot with a high heel counter. Oak Streek Trench boot is close but I do not like the low profile sole....,, The third picture is a Buttero boot. How is the quality with Buttero ?

A custom makeup through white's would serve you well.

Hey guys,

I'm trolling through Yoox (because there are days you have to do that, and today is that day for me), looking at side-zip/back-zip/chelsea/jodhpur style boots. I'm wondering if anyone can comment on the quality/construction and sizing of the brands Gianfabri Amalfi, Dsquared, and Docual's.

Anyone identify the boots here:

I'm digging the combination of the dimensions, the leather, and the blue sole.  They look like a service boot but I can't find anything too similar.

Grug,

 

I am looking for a pair of these Ronan boots too, I love them! 

 

I have a pair and have been wearing them non-stop for the last 18 months and they just blew out in the toe.

 

Would do anything to get another pair.

 

Did you have any luck finding some?

a pair of vintage black german boots that i found in the basement a few years back—they are approximately 60 years old, judging from the lining which reads »wasserdicht« (waterproof).

size is: european 43 / asian 27 cm / north american 10

i live in frankfurt am main and found a croat cobbler in stuttgart thanks to threads in a german shoe forum (http://www.newsaboutshoes.eu/forum/)—davor krivak is his name http://www.krivak.de/

he did a wonderful job and is now my cobbler of choice for future resoling jobs, although i will check out a few others as well. a few pictures he and his japanese apprentice took during the process:









=================

another vintage / old school pair -- these are cc41 utility clothing boots from ww2, some 70 years old ... wonderful tan color and creasing. my third pair, an ebay purchase from last year, and responsible for my foray into collecting decades-old boots that are worth reviving, heh ... revolve.giflaugh.gif




resoling will cost around € 250, am weighing some interesting options. size is: european 43 / asian 27 cm / north american 10

=================

and finally, my current favorites, also a 2013 purchase: german work or service boots in a deep, rich cherry color, between 70 to 60 years old, not unlike the black pair posted above with lining that reads "imprägniert" ("water proof").

size is: european 42 / asian 26,5 cm / north american 09

this pair is technically really shot, and will need a lot of work and dedication to shine again (literally and figuratively), cobbler's assessment was in the € 300-350 range for a restoration ... but boy, do i love their look. snatched them for € 25 on fleabay.

i've made myself some leather insoles for these old shoes, and they're absolutely comfy, no breaking in required.




the old resoling took place sometime in the former german democratic republic -- veb inselsberg was one of the huge state-owned enterprises from the footwear industry.

Doucal's is a solid brand. Others, not so sure.

My couple month old Krause boots are breaking in nicely.
