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/renovateur
>Heavy conditioner (if you live in terrible snow/rain areas) Sno seal/Obernauf LP
>Don't forget that boots need time to dry properly, rotate them and don't wear them daily for too long

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?
No they are filled with synthetic materials aimed at instant comfort but will not hold up to actual use.
>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.

I own a pair of split toe derbies and I agree, it is a mistake.

MAYBE if the split was reverse stitched so it's almost invisible (yes there is actually a seam here).

I honestly think all derbies are a mistake.

FWIW, zipper with another form of closure (lace, strap) is retarded and women, but zipper alone on laceless plain boots makes a slim calf-hugging silhouette possible. You cannot get your boots to cling that close to your leg with any other forms of closure.

None of my shoes have leather soles, but some of my shoes have split rubber soles (the waist is leather) and these are much more flexible and comfortable than shoes with all-rubber.

I suspect all leather soles must be very flexible and comfy once broken in, assuming you are walking on carpet and you are not fat because there really can't be any cushioning

There's been a slew of other Aussie bootmakers that have made workboots and every so often you get that one piece of leather that usually only denotes RM's. Might be some old model that was once offered by the likes of Baxter, Harold or even Rossi.

If you were to shop for a pair of shoes in a store, you might go because you need something to go with certain outfits, which you wear to go to certain places and occasions.

Now it's about the objects themselves, disconnected from the experience. you see this when ppl post pics of their watches or shoes, cropped so it's basically like a product shot, disconnected from the outfit.

i can not imagine why you would add decades old rubber on anything and expect it to perform or at least not disintegrate immidiately

the appeal of dr. soles is that they use retro inspired molds and add shredded up cord mixed into the rubber compound
i guess you would want that as a repro larper, because that's what the US army did for their combat boots during WWII for no other reason than it being a material saving measure, because rubber was in high demand for the war effort, they used shredded up hemp cord as a filler
it looks absolutely hideous, but supposedly adds better grip
they also have the same thing but with cork instead of cord filler

>casual comfortable work boots

If it matters to you, Rossi isn't made in Aus anymore (mine are) and they're probably my favourite shape to wear casually so I've downgraded mine to casual use

For my actual work boots I wear Redbacks now which I would say are even more comfy. The top ones are the steel cap (bobcat) and has like a more symmetrical cut at the front that makes it look more bulky and bulbous.

The bottoms aren't steel toe but they are cut more sleeker on the top similar to the Rossi where it's like a V cut at the front of he foot. I personally think these would look better worn casually if you don't need steel toe but both are great to stand and walk in for long periods

Sizing is the same, get your AU/UK size which is one size smaller than your US size

exactly, GYW is useless on cheap dogshit boots like tursdays.

I think it compliments the suit you wear in an office setting. Dress boots can work too but I think you will need to dress a bit more casual to pull it off. I think that they feel more suited to going out on the town better.

The berg one is a porous leather, can confirm.
It'll still collapse like foam but at least it'll be durable foam.

i find the 4811 last (cruisers) to be slightly looser in the toe box both width and vertical clearance but snugger in the waist and heel, great if you're doing a lot of outdoor hiking/slope work, also higher arch than the semi dress

It was only a matter of time before Turdsday decided to hop on the trend.
Rogue Territory for a modern style and fit. I own one and it's amazing. It's the one James Bond wore in the NTTD trailer so it got really popular but it's worth every penny
Flint and Tinder makes a very good one that is blowing up right now as well because apparently the main guy from The Last of Us wears one
I would go with either of those two but Freenote Cloth makes a very nice one but it's more expensive and the style is more Western. The guy from Yellowstone wears one

I own two dogs and two cats, and this is my rogue territory waxed canvas jacket straight out of the closet. Nothing sticks to it after the first couple weeks as the wax moves around and rubs off and breaks in
If you're worried about lint it's not a big deal. Only at the very beginning when the wax still has that wet sticky feel
