Been wanting these Rick combat boots ever since they came out. Found them on sale and bought them. What do you guys think?
Pretty ugly and boring IMO. Why not just get timberland 40 below or RO anfibio boots both of which look and probably are far superior ?

your opinion is invalid if you think ricks and timberlands are compatible

Thanks for the input.
Timberland is not something that fits my preference in design. Meaning, in my opinion a RO boot, specifically these ones, are more attractive to me. More grungy and outlandish. More unique, and artistic. RO and Timberland simply do not compare. Not saying RO always better, but they are in two different realms.
Definitely wasn’t looking for th classic combat boot.

I understand they are a more “ugly” boot. However the grungy, ugly look, is the detail that attracted me to them. Hence, the reason I find them the opposite of boring.
Regarding Anfibio. I like them a lot. But these have precedence for me over the Anfibio, as the anfibio have a more elongated look, which I haven’t found myself in yet. Kind of like the CP Combat Boots. More like a ranger boot.

thanks again for the input.

They look like they would belong to the drummer of a underground grunge band. Need to lose the shine and really beat them up. Perhaps drag them on your rear bumper for a couple of miles.

Eh, as a punk rock guitarist I'd even call that a stretch. Can't even get those fuckers to wear shoes half the goddamned time.

They wouldn't be so bad if they didn't have that padded shit at the top that make your ankles look fat. I just see old lady legs in the shape.

Ok, maybe a K-Pop band trying to look punk.

Now I can't unsee the cainkles.
