Shoes that look better with age...

Recommended Posts

Here are a few photos of these truman boots I got around four years ago. They're waxed flesh, I think from horween, and i've never treated the leather to my knowledge. Does anyone with more knowledge about this sort of leather feel like I should? I'm curious about other peoples' experiences with waxed flesh in general. I know it was kind of a trendy thing back in the day and that's largely what motivated this purchase but I don't feel like I have seen many photos of this sort of leather as it ages.

As an aside, strongly considering buying a pair of Lone Wolf boots this week, deciding between the Farmers, Carpenters and Mechanics - I'll update with some photos when they come in!

My Wesco Romeos “Anti Roller Mag” came in today!

Exact same copy of the Roller Magazine collaboration except without the Roller Mag stamp on the insole.  Navy Insole too. Burgundy leather.

Just ordered a pair of white’s from Bakers since they are 20% off. I’ve been toying with these for a while - basically a white’s copy of the lofgren donkey puncher because I’m cheap like that. 
 

Ed would approve

Not really in keeping with the styles on here but...

I bought these Visvim Laramie Folk 5+ years ago for a summer break that never happened... worn only a few times... and they have lived in their shoe bag, in the box ever since

Seems a waste... if you're interested, DM me

@shredwin_206I plan on beating my Wescos Romeos to death too.  Already used them to work in the attic and garage.  Next is riding with them and other work.  If White’s had a slip on like these, I probably would’ve bought them a while back.

What about the v-tip, black shell, modified last aldens?

ohh sorry we still cant do the modified last its only for  lakota house in japan and 2-3 stores in the united states..

but from intelligence report there is a store in italy that sells the modified last too just recently... 

 

the rule for you to sell a modified last alden is that you should  be a orthotic  footwear store.

but when you look at lakota house theyre never and orthotic  company...

I don’t think it’s ever been any secret that Lofgren holds weirdly strong views against Chinese sourcing & manufacturing

or

It’s true that his past comments have probably gone beyond what’s justified, but I hardly think it’s fair to conflate a distrust of Chinese & Indonesian manufacturing in general with any sort of hard feelings towards the cultures or the people—there’s an undeniable history of low quality, mass-produced goods coming from these countries, and we can’t all go around proudly touting our MiJ & MiUSA goods without recognizing that that designation comes with the implication that MiC goods are, on average, expected to be worse

I don’t really see where Lofgren’s coming from here, or why he bothers with that whole schtick, but the person responding also kinda just seems like they’re getting offended for the sake of getting offended, which annoys the hell out of me

(I say this all as someone who currently has a pair of boots on order from China for which I’m extremely excited, and which I expect to be right on par with my Lofgrens in terms of both construction & materials)
