Depends on the rest of your attire.
Lurk on boot threads and try to vizualize if anything, how the boots and colours would match with you.

Im gonna get me some casual tank boots this autumn/winter. I tried them and they were comfy and didn’t fight against my overalls.
I don’t remember the name of them, but they are very-very similar to pic rel.
Didn’t have proper monies on hand, when i saw them.

Cowboys baby

>> No.15559161

Yeah - Frye and LL Bean should be way higher on the quality scale.

Honestly go with a pair of Thursday captains. Not expensive so you won't be neurotic about scuffing them up, can be used casual or business casual, durable enough to last a few years with decent care. Do not listen to the dorks on this site that say it's crap quality and your first pair should be $600 Vibergs.

2. You are a misguided basedboi trying to larp a blue-collar masculinity because you flunked out of both your own class and maculinity.

This. The 'boots' that most of you fags pick are literally just dress shoes with a thicker sole anyways. Boots are supposed to be rugged and functional. Most of the 'dress boots' look like moccasins or bed slippers and they make me want to vomit. Bottom line, you look like an absolute fucking fag with your dainty little 'boots'.

>> No.15568665

I'm glad they work out for you. All the Danner's I've got have sucked (or maybe it's the models I'm buying). I got the Skyridge model first I think it was called, it had a MASSIVE arch in the sole that cut into my foot as I walked (and I have high arches to begin with). Had to ditch em.

Then I tried the Bull Run Moc toes, which is a crepe flat sole which I thought would be better. The leather is incredibly hard, not just stiff but hard. There's a rim around the ankle leather the cuts into my heel, the leather dye bleeds into every pair of socks I wear with them even thick ass wool boot socks, they're too heavy for outdoor Summer use and not insulated enough for Winter use.

Here's a picture of the uncomfortable piece of shit called the Skyridge, see that massive fucking arch support thing in the middle? That actually goes ALL the way up that high inside too, It's not just on the sole and the outside. The INSOLE presses down on it. And I got the first wave of this model, the whole shoe was brown but the arch thing was *camo.* Motherfucking woodlands camo, the only piece of the whole boot like that.

Ah, yeah, those do look a bit shit. I could see the argument for bringing them down the list because of their more trendy or democratized models, especially if the quality is lacking. Shame.
I tend to stick to classic models, and the mountain lights haven't given me issues. Single piece upper of quality leather, goretex liner, a bit heavy (but that's expected from a model from the 70s), made in the USA, easily serviceable. Just a simple hiker.
