Tjoenn, you need to show us a picture of your shoe shine kit. Shazam, what a collection. Beautiful. More jackets forthcoming?

Ah, yes indeed. I have my RM's I also have two pairs of Blunnies which are about 18 months old. Apparently the fault with the soles has been rectified.
My 2 pair crumbled on me last winter within weeks of each other - one, a resole, began losing its welt, which is game over.

I did a lot of online research before concluding that Blunnies had changed the sole material yet again in response to the fault, and so I bought 2 new pair at a healthy markdown. We’ll see how they last...

Burt,

it is just a personal experience, as every foot is different, but these boots were a bit*h to break in.
Took me some months of constant wear, meaning that I wore them whenever my blistered feet allowed for it. This should not diminish the quality or sizing or construction of the shoe, not at all. They were among the most comfortable boots I ever had, when I first tried them on. Just seems that my feet are super sensitive...breaking them in and getting used to longer walks was kinda tough.

I tried a pair of Iron Rangers for the first time today, and it was a good idea as I would have ordered a size too big. I was very impressed by the overall quality, and they felt nice once I put them on.

The shop didn’t have any black left, which was my first choice. The pair I’ve tried were in copper rough’n’tough. And the more I’m looking at the picture below, the more the color is growing on me.


Now, is mixing black with brown still a big no-no? [emoji16]

The copper Iron Rangers darken with wear and applications of Red Wing boot dressing. I really dig how mine are looking.

^ Yeah, those look awesome, Grant! What does the Red Wing boot dressing consist of? Is it mink oil or is it a leather lotion?

Ties, those horsehide boots sure look bonny. Would you be so kind as to post a link where one might buy a pair of those? There are plenty of references to Thorogood Roofer boots, but cannot find anything on horsehide. Thanks.
Cheers
Gary

I am no sure who's is the best. Mine are both from Epic militaria. The Roughouts are more comfortable and lighter to wear.
