What do I need to care for my boots?
>Old cotton t shirt (one for cleaning, another for applying conditioners)
>Horsehair brush ($10-15)
>Wooden shoe trees ($10-15)
>Light conditioner like Lexol/Bck4
>Heavy conditioner (if you live in terrible snow/rain areas) Sno seal/Obernauf LP

How do I deal with x stain?
>mud: allow it to dry then brush off
>salt: water and cloth as soon as possible
>saturated wet: allow the boot to dry for a full day, stuff with newspaper
>scuffs and scratches: buff vigorously with horsehair brush

>Should I buy turdsdays/soloshits/doc shitans?
>b-b-but muh ecelebs on youtube said they're good

your reading comprehension is subpar. parkhurst doesnt make anything, they design and contract a factory to build to their specs. artisan boot and shoe factory owns the equipment, the building, and employs the workers - i.e. they make the actual boots. it is the same for oakstreet, again - common knowledge. im not trolling, im just trying to inform you and others. they are similar to thursday boots - the are built in a factory in mexico, thurdsay has no manufacturing capacity.

Thursday isn't all bad. You will simply have return a few pairs before you get one that's actually your size. Also the soles fall off. Also the leather's thin af. Also some of them stretch out a ridiculous amount.

If you're actually serious about getting them, make sure to have a cobbler on stand-by, and when the soles starts to peel off don't have him glue it back on, but replace them with vibrams

If you want to look good, spend more money on jackets and pants. Most people look there first. If you want to be comfortable when walking and standing, while looking good to a small niche of people who look at footwear, then spend big on boots.

Also this thread is filled with welted boot purists who also hate Thursday (though not without reason) your minimal budget will be about $350

My biggest problem with Thursday’s is their narrow shapeless lasts in all their shoes/boots. If they were cheap and looked good it’d be ok but I guess you need ugly generic lasts to accommodate the wide range of reddit users who don’t know their shoe size.
