1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    But they're the exact same boots as Thorogood's famed American Heritage 6-inch Moc Toe Wedge sole boot as seen here: http://www.weinbrennerusa.com/dspNav...137&prodid=154

    As you will be able to see from the pictures, the only differences are the obvious 'Dunham' branding, eyelets instead of speed hooks, 'Weinbrenner'-labeled outsole, Dunham-labeled cushioned insole and a 'Made in Usa' label sewn on the tongue instead of as a tab on the side. They were part of a small run made by Weinbrenner for Dunham to celebrate Dunham's 110th anniversary.

    I've confirmed by phone with both Thorogood's maker Weinbrenner and Dunham/New Balance the above, and that - other than the design changes above - they're the EXACT same boots as the Thorogood American Heritage boots. This means of course, lifetime-quality Goodyear-welt construction, made in USA from steerhide tanned in the USA, composite shank, and ridiculous levels of comfort. If you're unfamiliar with Thorogood, please search these boards or Google it - and you'll see how loved and well-regarded they truly are.

    The only problem? They don't fit me! But that's only my problem. They've been worn for two hours on carpet, in my house - so basically brand-new boots. The only thing I've done is put on leather conditioner specially formulated for oil-tanned leather. They're labeled 9EEE. HOWEVER, they run more like 9EE, or even 9E (with thicker socks).

    Feel free to ask any questions, thanks!

    Price drop to $101 shipped CONUS.

    That's $40.00 (at least) retail.
