PSA, a few C&J boots are 30% off in the Todd Snyder BF sale. I managed to grab a pair of Tan Scotch Grain Coniston’s for $507, which is cheaper than I have seen lately, even when ordering from the UK with no VAT.

Does anyone wear Dr Martens boots ?

Am thinking of adding them to my collection but i dont know what i would wear them with. I dont dress like a punk rocker. I have a slim frame so i thinking they might look to bulky on me. 🤔

Unless you need the slip resistant soles, I’d find another option. The quality all around is poor, and they’re chunky and heavy as hell. I wore three pairs over three years, because they made sense for working in a restaurant and behind a bar. Still looked good, while protecting me from falling. All three pairs required a two week to a month break in (5 days a week) before they were comfortable. Never once did I wear them outside of the job.

I got a cxl pair on sale a little while ago and bought more for the leather...

they’re an acquired taste but are pretty comfortable however don’t get much of a run out at my house..

Does anyone have experience with Vibram’s 430 sole?

I’m doing an MTO and I’m wondering if it’s worth the $30 up charge opposed to Dainite that has no up charge. I only have experience w Dainite, itshide commando and Alden’s commando. I don’t live in a snowy area either.

I would stick with the Dainite sole if you don't really need foul-weather performance.


"The Vibram Mini-lug 430 uses a different compound than many other rubber soles making it oil-resistant, durable, and grippy"

Thank you for the link. Seems like I wouldn’t benefit from the sole. California weather is pretty much sunny year round. Thank you.
