    Yeah, I had Chippewa resole them earlier this year. I wear these continuously during different periods of time, and they got torn up by rocks at one point.

    Here's another pair of the L. L. Bean Katahdin engineer boots. Mine have seen about 8 months of semi-regular wear and have had one treatment of Obenauf's oil.

    Thanks for the pics of the Katahdin from LL Bean. My brother just go some of those today and showed me his pics too. After all of those I just couldn't resist, those are some nice looking boots and the quality looks amazing. The fact that you can a US made, Goodyear welted boot with a Vibram sole for $150 is pretty incredible. I placed my order today so I hope they fit when they arrive. Should be great for this winter.

    These have suffered enough to be dressed up or down, I think:

    Incredibly good thread... I have Frye Harness boots that I wear quite a lot but no camera. Man I want to get those Indy boots! They seem like they would last me forever and that is what I am shooting for. This thread also inspired me to order the new Clark's Desert Boots in antiqued leather: [​IMG]

    Chiral,

    How do those boots fit? I'm thinking of placing an order. My only problem is if I do order a pair, it'll be my 2nd brown boots because I've got a pair of brown Butteros.

    To everyone,

    Which company makes good Chukkas?

    [​IMG] If you happen to be a size 11.5-12, I have a pair of Banana Republic chukkas on sale for cheap. [​IMG]


    The best chukkas of them all is probably the John Lobb Luffield which Daniel Craig wore in Casino Royale. A bit more affordable is the Tetbury from Crockett & Jones.

    ^^^^nice. I love the color and stitching on the trend concepts. How are they? are they just 1460s with a different sole? The toe shape looks a little slimmer from that angle. are they made in england?

    Do the white laces on those signify something? Membership in some subculture?

    They fit a bit larger than marked, in my opinion. Not a full size though, I wear them with thick hiking socks and its fine. But with LL Bean, if theres any problems or you're not happy you can return with no problems at all.

    I really like the "trend concept" models a lot. They're made in Thailand but looking at em, it looks really well made. These have full grain leather, very similar in feel and thickness to Red Wing GT leather. It's even called "Excel", but I dont know if it's the same Horween "Chrome Excel" that Red Wing uses. but the shape looks a little different than the 1460/1461s, but that could be an optical illusion since they appear the same and feel same when worn. I prefer the standard white stitching on these, over the traditional yellow safety stitching that they're famous for.

    The oxblood shoes (1461) and boot (1460) are MIE models. And the dark oxblood shoes aren't actually DM but Solovair, which is the Northampton-based company that originally made Doc Marten (and still does for their MIE line iirc)

    Pantser, yes the white laces signify a subculture thing, but the color doesnt have any meaning.
