    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    There's no reason to buy a hipster's copy of a classic when the classic is still around in an equivalent (or better) form. Frye, Durango, and Chippewa are all still good enough to wear and will last longer than you will.

    I've got a pair of Dr. Marten work boots. Real boots, none of those dress boots or whatever with laces.

    I must agree with the varvatos boots recomendation. nearly everytime I go into the JV store they have a nice selection of shoes/boots.

    (LA Guy @ April 25 2005,14:58) Unless you are a policeman (in which case I'll cross the street now) do not tuck your pants into your boots. Â God, I hate cops.

    Brilliant. Anybody else got a Body Count cassette old enough to have 'Cop Killer' on it? That was my claim to fame as a kid.

    Yep. The CD works much better these days though. John April, not everybody wishes Indianapolis's Finest the best, sorry.

    I was wondering what boots are your favorites? What do you rock?


    I am also looking for some nice ones, not timbs, not cowboy, but something more along these lines:

    I really want leather, not rubber soles though.


    I'm bumping this because I really want to find out what kind of boot those are. Are they even boots? The have a really low heel which is what I was looking for.

    Ha! Ridiculously old thread. They look like chelseas of some sort... you can kind of see the elastic sides.

    I was hoping a thread like this would come up.

    I need to get a pair of boots pretty soon. My Dad, brother and I own a small contract drilling and mineral exploration company so my day to day dress is pretty casual. I'm usually wearing sneakers, jeans and a sweater or long sleeve tshirt. I'd like to get a pair of boots that will be fitting for what I do. They can't be overly dressy because they will get beat up.

    I really liked that pair of frye boots in the last picture but is there something similar to that but with a capped toe? I find the plain toe, like in the boots posted, to be a bit boring. Other than that, I really like them. Any suggestions?

    Also, is frye fairly true to size? My Adidas Chile '62 are size 9 and my converse are size 8.5 I think.

    I would guess sized down Ralf because the rise looks too high for an Ola.

    No, Frye runs large, IME. I've got a pair of Brandos in 9 and I'm always a 9.5-10 in everything else.
