I’ve got some of his wallpaper designs in our kitchen and a bedroom - they’re really cool as you say

Are the Clinch boots Clinch size 12 or 11.5? If they're Clinch 11.5 I'll take those.

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately, the only ones I'm interested in are built on the Odeon last, and I'm not sure what the differences are...

Did a little research and it seems to be their standard last. Experience wise, if you're a brannock us 8, go for a us 7,5 in heschung, translated to a uk 6,5 i think.

not surprised! it is a power trio, with a lot of wear, but lots still to put in...

more pix for posterity before they go?

the leather on the attractions looks incredible, and i would be a sucker for those latigo clinch...

I love my RDTs, but I have to admit some disappointment in how the stitching on the vamps began to come loose pretty quickly.  They have held together, and I don't wear them all that often, but still an unexpected breakdown.

@tod that's disappointing, I'd be interested to see some photos.

The red thread represents my attempt to do some DIY reinforcement, which I failed at..

Wow. Given the price and RDT's reputation, that is shocking.

Don’t get as much of a look in as they should, they get a lot of comp from the classic coloured Red Wings. B256380C-1400-423B-9D20-934966098C0A.thumb.jpeg.3a8a8329cffd92a96694785d5de0efb3.jpeg

Black horsehide Coupens arrived from Rolling Dub Trio and I'm really happy with them. They're a bit lighter than I expected which is nice, so they can see year round wear.
Love the toe shape and profile, these really are a mid-cut workboot like RDT calls it rather than an oxford / derby / whatever you call it.
My only initial complaint is how damn loud and squeaky the leather is. I'm sure they'll subside with wear, I experience the same thing with my shell cordovan Alden shoes.
There's one minor defect on the right left shoe in the welting, but I'm not super picky as once they're beat up you won't even notice it I don't think.
Also these shoes were SO well packaged. I should've taken more photos of the packaging and presentation, but they felt really special to open up.
Can someone educate me on the screwed on toe-guard thing and what it does?

^^ VERY nice. The toe guard is there to prevent the sole at the toe from wearing down too quickly. Not commonly put on rubber nitrile soles like these. Usually used to protect leather soles. I had them on a pair of Carminas. They bother me with all the clicking as I walk and I found they actually can cause a bit of slip sometimes. So I sent them to Dr. Sole for a resole once the leather soles had worn down. Goodbye toe guards.

Those look incredible @Broark! Along with the Badalassi cognac coupens that Mushmans did years ago, this is my favorite version that I have seen yet.

Thanks @dudewuttheheck, I'm very happy with them. And I remember those from Mushmans, really nice bold color way.
Next up will likely be a pair of Stans from RDT, fingers crossed that they'll carry that one in size 12 too.

Hah, this is funny. I wore my Coupens today and realized that the metal plates have disintegrated like crazy. Not much wear on them either. Oh well, good to know they can be replaced if I feel like it.

Otherwise, great looking Coupens @Broark, it'll be interesting to see how they develop. Glad you found them in your size as well.
