    I've been really liking service type boots recently. I want to buy a pair but I can't decide. I'm down to these 3 but I'm open to suggestions as well. The Vibergx4HM service boot, PS Ricard, and the W+H Dayton Service Boots. I don't like that the W+H are pre-distressed. http://fourhorsemen.ca/shop/4-horsem...-service-boot/ http://www.ssense.com/men/product/pa...er_boots/29247 http://www.rodengray.com/shop/WH-x-D...variantid=1955 I'm leaning towards the Ricard. I'm not sure if I should go for a boot with a commando sole, like the KVA boots posted in the winter boot thread. It looks chunky but I think it could be good for traction. I have a pair of C and J Tetbury with the Dainite sole, something like that would be ideal.

    I'm freaking in love with the 4 horsemen boots.

    The Ricards get a lot of love in the PS shoe thread.

    Does anyone have any experience with Officine Creative boots? I've read some shitty things about their quality on SZ but was wondering if those were just isolated incidents.

    ^ Well, I already know that PS doesn't make such a boot, and it doesn't specifically need to be PS...

    Like Ricards in what way?
    A lace up boot with a side zip? Try John Varvatos.

    Yeah, brown lace up with side zip. JV doesn't make anything like that either, although I love how people are just throwing out name brands randomly.

    I tried on a pair of lace ups with side zip at a John Varvatos store about a week ago.

    Try Buttero http://www.barneys.com/Lace-Up-Boot/...efault,pd.html

    Yes, he most certainly does. You fail.

    dtmt don't be a dolt. These makers definitely have similar boots with a zip. Just because you can't find it with a minute-long google image search doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

    I haven't yet seen these boots discussed on SF. They are not cheap, but they do look good to me. Casual, but not faux lumberjack. Thoughts?

    They're discussed plenty here on SF. He's got quite a following on the MC side. He's also one of the best I've seen at antiguing dress shoes.
