Can any of you fags help me out? I'm looking for an all around boot similar in function to the Danner Logger 917. A sort of sneaker boot I suppose. I walk a lot on cement and asphalt but also walk through mud and trails. All weather, rain, snow, sun. Something can be worn in summer and winter (Northeast USA.) Waterproof/resistant as possible yet resoleable. I have a blown out knee and back so comfort is a must. A sole that has a lot of shock absorption but is tough as possible because I beat the shit out of my shoes. The Danner Logger 917 checks all of these boxes and I was ready to pull the trigger on them but I started seeing complaints about how Danner's quality has gone downhill. Aesthetically I'm looking for an all black boot, 6", lace up, preferably normal/round toe but I'm open to moc toe. I don't really want to spend more than $300. Thanks.

Baby's first "real" boot but the average city slicker will never need much more. Good leather nd construction quality, moreso factorin in the price, easy and fast break in and they do not look as clownish irl as they sometimes do on pics.
Blacksmiths are basically the same boot but without the cap toe and a slightly less stiff backstay.

They tend to use use crappy "genuine leather" that doesn't respond to conditioning and wears poorly, and bonded construction which means the soles are just glued on and cannot be replaced when they start falling off.

I understand those points and Thursday marketing model. What I don't really understand is the other end, the consumer and from a strictly aesthetic perspective. Perhaps I didn't word my thoughs correctly.
What I mean is that Thursdays have absolutely no character nor aesthetic uniqueness to them. They look like the most basic bitch boots ever made, like the boots a brand that doesn't specialize in shoemaking would design. Say, like Pepe Jeans or Levis or some such.
I know they use that midfle of the road between a rough workboot and a dress boot as a selling point, but still, if you wanted people to pay attention to your boots, Thursdays are like the opposite of that.
What I mean is that even if they offered a lot of quality for the value, even if what they marketed was 100% true, they'd still be pretty low on my list of brands to consider because they offer next to nothing in terms of aesthetics.
Perhaps this only makes sense to me, I don't know.

>> No.17999212

for a lot of people boots are big, heavy, unrefined things so the first time they see a shitty super skinny potato last they think it looks fancy and expensive

Just look for terms like waffle sole, or the manufacturers Ro-Search and Genesco.

Yeah agree, I might do a boot in that leather.
Probably needs a captoe because the grain sort of fades away where it's been pulled.

They should be able to add a topy + toe plates on a GMTO right?
You're not changing anything just adding on top. I'll pay.

i like the W&C tan latigo, great depth of colour

>> No.18001469

anything except the tan roughout, makes them look too much like us army boots

>> No.18001475

I'm a sucker for chocolate roughout, so I'd go with that.

Latigo is a beautiful color desu

i'm thinking the tan latigo might be the move as I don't have any boots with that color, but something about the chestnut keeps me from pulling the trigger

ID on these please? Also, should I get pic related or Blacksmith 3340? My only pairs of boots are black IRs and Beeswax CDBs, looking for variety.

Do they really? That last looks like something Thursdays would shit out. Genuinely looks like shit in the details, too.

They usually put a slip into your mailbox. If not just get a refund
