Bought some White’s that after a couple wears I have deemed to be too big. 

Up for sale or trade for size 11.

Does anyone know how Wesco and red wing sizes compare to whites? I have size eleven Wesco Packers and 10.5 RW merchants. If these would work on my feet I'd cop them in a minute

At the risk of turning this into an ugliest boots thread, I spotted these Clinch on a Japanese chap's instagram. I just hope it's removable.

I'm with you @unders Gold metallic boots, WTF? Something out of a glam rock tribute band.

Ha! You're right, perhaps the Gary Glitter association doesn't have quite the same impact on our American friends as it does on us.

Merry Christmas from Wesco Boots Japan!

I feel like this is that whole “is the dress gold or black?” meme that happened in 2016.

Those boots just look to me like they are polished black engineer boots with a lot of artificial light shining down on them.

Here’s a pic of mine in less light.

Has anyone here actually tried to put insurance on their shoes or boots?  Just curious.  Have no idea if this is even possible.

 

edit:  apparently, you can put insurance on them.

I have herd that you can insure pretty much anything granted your are willing to pay for it and a person who can write up the policy. I have herd of high end glass art that is used for smoking being insured as art.

White's semidress resoled by Ger Wijsman in Nederlands.
Went from Vibram 700 midsole + Quaubaug heels to Dr Sole raw cord full outsole and black rubber heel. Huge change comfort wise, Dr Sole is unbeatable...

Looks great. How much higher is the heel now with the full sole vs. half sole before the resole?

Volvo, have you noticed a difference in the weight of the boots now when wearing them?
