    anyone know how the katahdin engineers fit compared with the othe katahdin Iron works that are waterproof??

    The LL Bean near me only had the waterproof ones and they fit ok 10.5 and a little snug in a 10, but they have a lining and the leater might stretch so I was wondering if the engineers possibly fit a little roomier.

    Hi,
    Has anyone owned or heard of Denher boots? They make an army boot that I think may look very good as a casual boot with jeans. Comments appreciated.

    Here is a dated youtube video showing Dehner's factory and how they make the boots.

    They're military boots. I got mine used from ebay. I think i've seen a pair of ones in olive green off of a israeli military surplus site a long time ago but that's about it. I don't know what to tell you. Find an israel proxy?

    I have to say, I always wondered about how Quoddys were because they exploded in popularity all of a sudden and I never found them special enough to warrant their price. However these are just plain gorgeous. Is burgunday is a normal color or did you special order this? What's the price/quality/feel like?

    Sorry, forgot about this thread. I called them directly and asked if they had burgundy leather available and they said they did. They cost the same as the ones they have on their webstore, $178.00. The quality is leagues above the LL Bean Hand-Sewn Blucher Mocs I returned. I plan on wearing these for a long time. I can't recommend them enough.

    The deal? They are shoes, made by Augusta, sold at Atelier. They are expensive--roughly the same price as 42 pairs of Converse All Stars.

    I think theyre an acquired taste. Personally, I think they would look sick with black jeans/trousers.
