pascal doc martens

Victor doc martens.
I really like them, got them 6 months ago. It's the thai prod but they've proven themselves resistant to creasing, they're not falling apart, no sewing problems - near new condition actually, even though I wore them very often. All black, and ofc good sole. Very comfortable on top of that.

Are there any methods Canadian /fa/ggots know that can help me out?
>>
>>10456918
i know that feel, being effay is hard when the things you want are either ridiculously expensive to ship or dont ship at all to you

if you live near the border you could ship it to the us and drive down

if you know anyone in the us willing to do it (or you dont mind paying extra for a site to do it) you could try proxy shipping, it could get costly tho

but honestly you could try going to a few malls; it's fall so palladiums (and a lot of other boots) are really common in most shoe and clothing stores. i bought a pair of palladiums just yesterday from kixs in calgary

nah no shoe trees, I wear them all day and haven't treated them yet with any oils or anything, I don't mind the wrinkling since it gives them character but I'm more concerned about the soles getting fucked up and having a hole in the side of the boot or something

Thinking of copping a pair of Mali's as sort of a "going out" type of shoe, IE when you are going out somewhere and don't want to wear sneakers but aren't dressed formally enough.

Not that I would wear them only for this, but should I cop a pair? Feeling beeswax malis, and then maybe black suede CDB's later down the line.

As somebody who does a lot of returns due to sizing, only you can decide if it is worth doing an exchange. Is your life going to fall apart if you don't have these immediately? Or can you wait to try for a better pair.

Went to a Clarks store, asked for Mali's, they said they were web exclusive but they will order them for me. Asked for black but they could only fine Beeswax and whatever other brown colour it is, went to the back and came back later telling me they had no black left and didn't know when they were going to be restocked. Read somewhere online later that clarks is clarks is discontinuing black leather on all of their shoes or just a number of them, can't recall. Thats why you can only find them on places like Amazon, which is where I got my pair.

Had these for a month or so now, they run narrow but a bit long so half a size down was right for me.
Due to the thickness of the leather on the left boot's heel area I experienced a lot of pain breaking them in, but I doubt that will be a problem for the soft leather version.

They did break in after about 2 weeks of wearing them and feel very comfy now.

Thoughts on Blundstone boots? Looking to get the best pair of Chelsea boots I can for under 200$.
>>
>>10464414
blundstone chelseas are not sleek nor good looking. Just buy slp or jack erwin
>>
>>10464447
Yeah I definitely appreciate the advice, but those are a bit outside my price range atm.
>>
>>10464464
Meermin has a nice pair of chelseas that replicate slps design quite good, buy they are only MTO group order, so it's only on sale for a couple of weeks. Right now they're funding a brown chelsea, which is a bit pricier but it's good-year welted and that is quite a step up quality wise. Buxley is another good alternative with a sleek silhouette, but since i'm guessing you're in the US i can't recommend buying from there since Buxley is based in France and if you get the wrong size it's gonna be a nightmare with shipping.

Jack Erwin also has a nice pair of Chelseas that also are a bit pricier but with a lot better quality.

Been wanting to pick up these Horween Danners after my friend accidentally caught my last pair on fire while we were camping this summer. I have Visvim Serras for the look, but I don't like to actually take em out on trails. These Danners look like they could take the abuse.
>>
I'm not really very /fa/ and I just lurk a lot but I work as a conductor on the railroad and I started wearing Danner boots about 5 years ago.

They're expensive but when it comes to protection from snow and rain and walking for miles on ballast rocks, nothing else has come close. I like the look but I don't know if you guys would necessarily love them.

The pair I wear are called Quarry's ($260) but they've been doing a big push to do more fashionable stuff that's still very functional and warm. I've been walking for 5+ miles a day on shit surfaces for 12 hours a day and the sole is just starting to get clapped out.

Don't know if that's what you're interested on but that's my input.

I think the Danners look better, but the timberlands score some extra points for coming in leather. I have mixed feelings about suede boots in a non-chukka style.

>>10466497
No doubt theyre comfy. I tried on a pair once and it was ridiculous, I just can't really pull off that look. Are you going with a leather outsole like the one pictured? I think moc toes look pretty damn good with a "regular" heel/forefoot sole like that

it's a rubber outsole dude; Dainite makes a sepia brown one for, well, brown shoes. I've never seen them in person since only Allen Edmonds (to my knowledge) uses them regularly

Ideally something like a sand color suede or maybe a very light grey.

I did look at the Clarks desert boots and the suede I liked was the Taupe Suede, but I'm apprehensive since I've heard those shoes literally fall apart with normal use. Would pay more for quality.
>>
>>10466537
>have mixed feelings about suede boots in a non-chukka style.
Danner does a boot like this but it's not made in USA or recraftable (fucking shame cuz it's a niiiice boot) and you can get black suede mountain lights from Danner Japan (shame they aren't sold in America)
here's the real deal though: moncler peak boots


oh and OSB makes a beautiful indigo-dyed suede 8 eyelet boot but it's extremely hard to find
>>
>>10466584
>Dainite
fug, I was just looking at Allen edmonds recently and thought that looked familiar, must have slipped my mind. I think they'll look pretty solid with an outsole like that. Definitely more versatile.

>>10466591
If Johnston and Murphy's quality is still where it was 4 years and you like crepe soles then I'd say go with those. I'm not really familiar enough with other brands of chukkas though.

>>10466606

Surprisingly solid, apart from laces they came with - thin and made out of cheap leather so they won't last two weeks with heavy use.
My old pair's leather is still in a good nick, slightly scuffed, stitching is neat, however rubber sole (which was my mistake for buying it in the first place) is worn out completely, hence the new pair with plastic heel tips for easier replacement (hopefully)

I owned these for a short while. Eventually returned them because the brown colorway was too difficult to incorporate into any fit.

ebay
grailed

>>10473485
I'm not impressed with the leather quality on my new red wings (first pair). the fact that I had to condition and shine them right out of the box was kind of a letdown since the brand is so revered
just invest in Horween boots

>decent brands
>that arent expensive

copped those ones for 80 bucks worn once, very nice quality imo
but if you're not buying used you basically have to spend at least 200 to get something decent
>>
>>10473561

>>
>>10473647

>>10473985
Box says vibergs
The two brands get mixed up here a fair bit, actually
>>
>>10464189
Actually there is a test video on YouTube where the 3 Doc Martens are compared in quality.

Made is China were the best.

It goes like this:
China > England > Taiwan

Not even kidding. Some times mass production, produces better anon, I mean it can happen, right? well it did.

Fuck it, I'm just going to ask. Thinking about picking up something like pic related. Not that exact boot, but that style.

I need something casual that looks decent, just something to kick around in.

Any suggestions? Inspo? Abandon idea entirely?
>>
Can you buy Jack Erwin's IRL somewhere?
>>
>>10474881
>suggestions
no zipper
>>
>>10475286
Would definitely prefer without zipper but haven't found many options.

Thanks for the input. I'm still kinda new to /fa/ and am finding my way.

I don't want this thread to expire

>>10475477
I'm pretty impressed with the board as of late
There was a great ivy/prep thread last month, bag threads are consistently good, and this boot thread was a blast
It's gonna archive but there's so much that wasn't even discussed
Especially in terms of boot care and resoling options
