Indy Boots Edition

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
no. you will waste your time and money and still have uncomfortable footwear at the end of the day. spend the extra $100 and get something real.

Many Carmina RTW boot models also have no eyelets either (Carmina actually uses "blind" eyelets on the inside only).

Just received these from Carmina

The suede is amazing, though I have to say I have never seen proper suede up close before.
It's a bit darker brown and less orange in real life than the photo.

These are with CF Stead suede, a 360 storm welt, a split commando sole (with leather in the waist), antique brass (non-shiny) eyelets and speed hooks.
Size 9.5 UK on the Forest last.

I was worried about the last because I have wide feet (and there is a Forest EEE last) but I tried them on and they are comfy.

The finishing is not totally perfect but the things I spotted cannot be seen normally (a tiny discoloration on the storm welt etc).

Cost me 410€ including shoe trees (which cost 85€ on their own). And it took 2 months to make.
They have a weird acetone smell to them. I think I read Carmina treats their suede to make it waterproof.

On Allen Edmonds AE 65 I am US 10 but EEE width
On Carmina Rain I tried 9.5 UK but they are too narrow for me. Length wise they are roomy so I cannot go UK 10. The heel was too big for me too, basically the wrong last for me. Does not fit.
On TLB Mallorca, I was advised by the owner to order 9.5 UK on maximum width (H-width). Extremely comfy.
On Enzo Bonafe, I tried 363mod on 9.5 UK and they were a bit too short. The 363mod is the widest last, but also a little short and a lot of people go half a size bigger. So I think 10 UK would be right for me.

These Forest boots seem to be a good fit but the toe ball area is a little snug. Because it's suede it feels comfy, if it was boxcalf I would probably have to go Forest EEE. Length wise they are good.

Seconding for the third or fourth time. Unfortunately I think we'll never get a good recommendation. Euro makers are too dressy and fashionable or they go for new tech like asolo or lowa.

Those are just generic lug soled derby boots with a padded collar and a seemingly wide last. There are plenty of european makers that craft derby boots with a lug sole. If you're in love with that specifict exact model it's going to be difficult to find a copy here though

When I was researching shoepassion reviews, I'm pretty sure I found a couple from reddit from american posters. So I guess they'd ship to the US, too bad for the lack of sizes though

Since you can't comprehend english, let me take it slow so a retard can understand.

The membrane is called the shell. The membrane is between the grain and flesh. That is why Wolverine advertised it as the inner shell because they are sandwiched between grain and flesh unexposed.

I am literally saying the same thing, you don't know how tanning works and too retarded to understand.

Shell Cordovan is made by removing the flesh, thus removing 1 layer, exposing the membrane inside, now being out.

Hi Folks,

Andrew here at Parkhurst and I hope you’re doing well. As many of you may already know this year has been full of twists and turns. I am excited to finally say you will now begin to see a new type of boot from Parkhurst after months of work and development.

As we enter the Fall season ahead, Parkhurst will be back with new styles and new leathers – a few of which will be dropping tomorrow, Wednesday 9/13 at 11:00AM EST. These two styles will be the first ever moc toe and Chelsea boots for the company, each in two leathers. Both will be ready to order/ship starting tomorrow at that time. This will be the first introduction. The second will be our first ever women's line of Chelsea boots around the end of this month, possibly the beginning of October. The third introduction will be the staggered release of new Allen and Richmond boots beginning in late October/early November if production timing plays out as anticipated.

Dressy last and boot style but with a casual makeup.
It shouldn't work but somehow it does

Although my feeling is it would look much better on a different, less pointy last

If you make something with intentionally wrong (too much) toe spring shouldn't you make sure the leather isn't creasing when just standing still?

I have not heard bad things about them although I think it is one of those cheaper made in China brands right?

>> No.17244766

I like them because I have a pair but the whiteshills like to keep saying chyna over and over while never pointing out the flaws
my only issue is I think that should use smaller eyelets on the diesel but it's obviously an intentional choice to make it look less dressy

opinions about these undercover military boots?
Also any alternative and how do I find something similar?

My big toe can just barely feel the front of the boot. Will this be a problem?

>> No.17244827

Yes your toes should be nowhere near the edge of the boot. You should have 0.5 - 1.5 inches of toe “room” depending on the last.

I need black composite toe boots from zappos for around 120 or maybe a bit more. What would be some good boots that fit those requirements?

What about for moccasins? I have a pair that fit snug on my toes but are really comfortable. I’ve never had an issue walking in them. Are boots different?

>> No.17244921

Do they have a lot of height in the toe box?
Maybe that's why it feels "fine"

Not really. But the leather is soft and feels fine.
