a real artist in the US is "Brian the Bootmaker" http://www.roleclub.com/instagram/
Check his blog with videos of recent resole jobs http://www.roleclub.com/blog/
There is another forum called Denimbro, where you can find his work. But yes, these guys are specialists and their work is getting more and more expensive....on the other hand, you wouldn't be satisfied with a piece of rubber glued under your boot by "the guy at the corner", would you?
Lookout Lads, Steve's in the Tyhoon with his fingers on the 20mm, it'll be rockets next
I used to wear Docs, 1460's, and another more mountain style boot of theirs but had back issues, so have had to go flat soles.
Vivobarefoots are my mainstay at the moment, so far closest I can get to a boot With flat soles. Super comfy and light
Don't shoot Steve, pics to come when I get home in a few days...
If I posted pics of every pair of boots I owned we’d be here all day. Walker engineer boots, bought originally in London in 1988 (not by me). Steel toecaps.
Red Wing work boots. Picked up cheap on Ebay, have been there and done it. Must have been worn by a metal shop worker as I picked loads of shards of metal out of the soles.
My daily wearers, Wolverine Apprentice boots. Now with Red Wing replacement soles.
Thanks for the info.
Regarding the Perry, I moved it on about a year ago as I had lost some weight and found that I fit into a 46 a little better. It was a great jacket.
Good to renew contact with you.
My usual suspects Roughouts, Desert boots or my RM Williams. Today walking the dog it was the Roughouts.
ATF Roughouts, WWII Impressions USMC shoes and RM Williams Comfort Craftsman....
I forgot to post these fellas the other day. Quite often wear these with a flying jacket as well. Damn comfortable too.
It's quite late so pics will have to wait Steve, sorry but for me it's 3 x Redwings in winter months but come summer it's Clarks chukka boots or with chinos and A2 it'll be vintage Bass Weejun penny's (US made, not cheaper modern ones!), or sometimes Timberland decks.
Are your boots Justin Ropers or other brand?
Yup good old Justin Ropers. They're great boots, very comfortable, well made and tough as, well, old boots
These WWII Imp USMC boots look splendid - any more pics available?
Roughouts , LBC engineer boots converse Hi Tops
Hey Thomas, here's another pic of the WWII Impressions USMC boon dockers - dubbed a couple times to wear in the rain. They've held up quite well the last couple years.
What dubbing do you use on yours Grant ?? My roughouts are still in their "nude" light tan
I use a beeswax based Huberd's shoe grease or Snowseal.
As is a decent pic? Little blurry... Will see what I can do mate..
These seem to be my go to boots of recent months, treated myself for my 50th. Been gardening in them recently hence the need for a spot of TLC.
