    I really like the Frye brando lace boots. Anybody know how they run in sizing?
    Frye said they run a half size larger.
    Anybody have any first-hand experience?
    Thanks

    I wear 8.5 in most shoes (allen edmonds, red wing, clarks, etc) and wear an 8 in Frye brandos.

    I wanna go with boots I can tuck in since my jeans are pretty slim.
    I also wouldn't mind having boots that I can wear with dressier clothe.


    I feel like those are two conflicting desires. For the first, a chunkier boot would work but then obviously it would not be capable of also being used as a dress boot. And if you went with a dressier boot, it'd be far too sleek to be able to be successfully tucked in.

    At least that's how I view it. If anyone has examples of one of those being pulled off, feel free to prove me wrong.

    No that totally makes sense. I guess I'd rather have a boot that is more casual. Something just looks a little off to me about the Paul Smith Ricard. Maybe its becuase the back of the boot is soo straight, unlike horns and wings, Cdiems, and other boots.

    I thought the wings and horns were nott "chunky" boots, but they seem to look good tucked in IMO. Would the PS or the Buttero look more similar to this?????

    Can anyone recommend the best place to get black Red Wing GTs? I bought my Black Cherry GTs from Revolve but they don't carry them any more, and Cultizm is out of my size.

    If you have a Red Wing store in the area, that always gets my recommendation (can try them on and walk out with them)... [​IMG]

    Zappos has them, but they're called "Beckman" now. Odd.

    Ever thought about the Fiorentini+Baker? Its not too high like Buttero or Frye. Kinda has that Ricards style. Last time I checked, it was the same price as the Buttero. http://streetpeeper.com/image_thumb/...-09-sidney.JPG

    Talking about PS Ricards? No, they are quite a slim boot, they won't tuck well.

    With skinny jeans or a well tapered pair of jeans, I believe the jeans would be "tuck-able" in PS Ricards as well.

    Have to be pretty damn skinny, IMO. The W+H, while not overly chunky, are definetly more so than the Ricards. But, I guess it also comes down to the individual. I might tuck with W+H, I wouldn't with Ricards, I rock a slim rather than skinny though.

    Not necessarily. In this pic, it seems like it might work by just loosening up the laces a bit.
    I mean I know this picture isn't exactly the same as the pic the W&H pic but it isn't too farfetch.

    The ricards seem a lot more skinny I'm not sure they look good tucked in. Ricards are also way to dress IMO to be tucked in. I think that boots that look good tucked in have a wider opening like the buttero work boots. HEREs a pic of PS ricard tucked. What do yall think? Too dressy??? It looks awkward to me [​IMG]

    They look fine tucked in to me. That would not be my first choice for a boot to tuck jeans into though.

    That does look too dressy, looks like a military boots that officers would wear with their camo's tucked in.
