But how long will harness boots actually be cool? I don’t see them having as much longevity or functionality (poor word choice but ability to dress up or down) as compared to side zips or Chelseas
That, is borderline trolling.

Ok got my fw13 wyatts but they look a bit off, legit check?

View attachment 905204
My condolences. The heel angle makes it obvious it isn’t legit. But if it fits nicely, I would keep it because this is the best alternative out there so far.

Edit: Forgot to consider that you might have paid legit Wyatt ‘13 price on it. In that case return it.

I think if you have a few then go for it, but otherwise from an investment perspective sometimes going conservative is better.

@Diet CCC, I wasn’t trying to troll. I was purely stating my opinion.

I get your point but we're talking about people buying $400+ jeans just for the styling and cut. :) but yeah I'd definitely get a Chelsea before I think about Harness.

Not a fan of crepe soles, nor am I a fan of BV shoes. I'd go with the SLP. or even like C&J. at least SLP Harness boots are different and cool.
i have SLP chelsea in sigaro and in the future i want to grab BV in the andoise color. my outfits are gonna be different and suited with certain style.

also BV suede is special waterproof i believe is what im told.

Damn you’re right it looks pretty good

Yeah they're underrated. Look great with short leathers like the L01. I have the black slim too and love those as well, especially with the PC denim jacket and Devon boots / SL 01 white low tops. I still wear skinny mid waist and low waist black, but it's nice to have the variation.

I see. Because I tried on a 41 in store and they fit perfectly fine but on the too strap of the harness my foot was aching. I could always use an insole if anything. I noticed how a 42 1/2 is the same length as a 42 johdpurs. Weird

Just received these in from a Grailed user, I had been searching for these forever but they fit bigger than I expected. Really beautiful boot in person though, I needed something that can handle snow and slush but still look better than a pair of Timberlands and these fit the bill. The shearling is a nice winter touch from the regular combats too. Gonna keep looking for a smaller size, but in the meantime if anyone wants these 42’s hit me up. Once I have these and the side zip Rangers I’ll be I’ll set for winter!
