    lol^^
    Recession or not they won't go on sale more than an affilate discount. That is for sure.

    Limited edition is supply and demand and when the product is solid people will buy and the rest of the shit will fall to the wayside.

    ohh these are so nice. i pre ordered these from RG last year but then they never got produced, emailed W/H to see if any samples were for sell, no help there. so i ended up grabbing the black ones from nomad, i assumed these would never happen. too bad im buying a house or these would be mine. recession or no recession i think these are going to go quick.

    ^ Agreed I don't think they will have any problems selling these. If I love the black ones as much as I think I will, I'm getting a pair of these for sure.

    Since I can't afford the boots, I'll just buy the cordless phone.

    I might be the only one, but I actually prefer them in black. Not really convinced by that brown color (in those pictures at least).

    as much as i love wings+horns and feel like supporting a local designer, i really don't get the pricing scheme (they are like 700ish?) i can buy a pair of lightly used CCPs/Carpes/Guidis for the price. would deff purchase if they were like 400ish

    The daytons seem like pretty solid quality wise. The other shoes you mentioned have pretty different shapes too. Most carpe diem boots are an acquired taste as not everyone is going to like the bulbous toe.

    Personally, the shape of the wh x dayton boots are absolutely perfect for me. That means a lot to me.

    Good luck. I doubt those are even coming out until fall and even then, now that people like cd are gone they're going to be even harder to get at retail, let alone come sales season.

    these boots are clearly unique and I haven't been able to find anything comparable to them. the slimness while maintaining an "army" vibe and the general profile is one-of-a-kind...

    that said: 750 bucks for these just seems batshit insane. to the casual eye they just look like a pair of beat up boots. i don't think i could wear these without getting mocked by my friends. i'd be embarrassed if anyone found out how much they were.

    they won't be around come sale time, i know. but shit man. that's a lot of money for weathered boots.

    So everyone is raving about these boots....

    BUT

    How is the quality? Are they goodyear welted? Resoleable?

    Quality is legit, DJ. You know that. I'm pretty sure they're goodyear welted as several, if not all, Dayton boots are.
