  1. Shoes that look better with age...

    thanks! i have been thinking about getting these for around 4 years now. i have a pair of smoke jumpers that just weren't seeing much wear because of the weight (steel toes, full vibram sole) and height (took way too long to lace up.) i took stock of what i liked and didn't like about the smoke jumpers and started thinking about a new boot. i have a pair of alden indys in chromexel and they are great in the fall/spring, but not up to an NYC winter.

    shit, well i'm glad my new bounty hunters just shipped.
  4. Shoes that look better with age...

    just ordered a pair of bounty hunters, this is the only online community that i am a part of who would care. edit: should have listed the options: 6", single midsole, vibram comp half sole, chromexel upper, the rest brown rough-out, brass, hook/loop, lined.
  5. Raw for Women

    my wife has them and loves them. she's thin (and japanese) but far from a stick. one thing is for sure, they fade nicely.

    what the hell is up with that backup dancer? at first i thought they had blackface on and thought "that is not cool" but then i saw it wasn't blackface, so that changed to "that is pretty weird"

    i like mine a lot as well, but i feel that having to size up another size this time (got a 35 instead of a 34) resulted in a slightly looser feel, as i don't feel that they shrunk down to the size of my 34s from the year before. i can't say that i like the fit quite as much, but only time will tell.

    me too, when i was a kid we would get on your case if you laced them the other way.

    agreed 100%. they did an amazing job on my evisus and my pbjs. i will post some pics eventually in the repairs thread, but bravo guys, great work!

    i had that happen with mine, too. i'm sure yamane san figured out a way to make it happen.

    google for the "mac method"

    i must say that sounds like they did exactly what we said they would. i know that it sucks, but it's expected behavior.
