    Really?
    I just got a pair and the only difference I see is the leather is not as soft, which I would presume to be for functional reasons. Tougher and more boot-like.


    Which treatment did you get? Mine are the "textured leather," which from pictures looks like it might be really different from the other polished and suede versions....maybe?

    Speaking of common projects, I have never been more underwhelmed by the quality of a footwear purchase than I am with that of my officer's training boots. They really do look amazing, but god damn, it's like a completely different company than the one that makes the sneakers or something.

    yeah, i've been saying this since i saw them in store. The styling is really nice, but either the treatment does something to fuck with the leather or it was never nice to begin with. It'd be interesting to see how well they last, they might soften up a bit.

    Yup, I've been wearing them all winter, so I'll track how they hold up...but I honestly don't have very high hopes. It's to say they're straight up not worth it, but people ought to know what they're getting into.

    Hm granted I haven't worn mine a significant amount (boots tend to look retarded w/ scrubs lol), but I never got any sort of "hard" leather impression on mine. I don't think the quality is really high, but my boots' (pretty distressed) leather came pretty thin and soft/floppy. They're really comfortable.

    Thanks, they're part suede though. The ones above are all leather.

    ^-verrrr nice

    I really like them. Not sure what they'd work with though. They'd be easier to maintain than the white ones also.
