The Best Boots In the World

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about picking up a pair of Red Wings.  I just sorta' assume they're the best, I don't really know.  But supposedly they can last a lifetime.  I'm not completely sure of that claim, but if I picked up a couple of them and and continued to sneakers when I'm working out, running or biking (that would be odd if I wore boots while doing those things,) maybe they really could last that long.  

 

They're damn expensive, though.  

 

This diesel truck of mine, this worry about an End of the World scenario, I'm growing concerned about having stuff that lasts.  Awesome stuff that lasts.

^Those aren't bad, but I question their reliability and and am concerned that they won't be in good condition after a few years.

lol I always joke that when women got older they start looking like an old boot.  Leathery and wrinkled.

And you are a retard who can't read, wouldn't expect much more from a Bogan. And I am not a Vegan, I eat lots of meat, I just don't go out and kill stuff for some kind of creepy fun.

For the record, I went with some boots from Chippewa.  American made, union made, right here in Missouri.  Since I got them, I've noticed them a few different times in film, though not as often as I see Red Wings, Doc Martens or Alden's "Indy Boot."  I'm surprised that this was a "thing" that I was completely unaware of.   I even saw them on the Walking Dead (I forgot which character.)  Oh, and I also noticed Louis C.K. wearing a pair on a stand-up routine.  

 

They were not very comfortable at first, but I am slowly breaking them in.  I wore some cheap boots as a carpenter and they sucked.  Then I went with a better-but-still-less-than-a-hundred-dollar boots and while they were nothing special, but they were fine; a lot better than the cheaper pair.   I didn't need to break them in, they were fine right out of the box.  I also wore the standard issue boots in the Army (this was when they were black and you had to polish them) for a year and they sucked.  I bought some jump boots and those were remarkable; once again, right out of the box.

 

I even had a pair of Doc Martens that I tended bar in for a while.  They were a size too big, but they were on the Clearance rack and I needed a pair for work; cheaply.

 

So I've worn my fair share of boots.  But I never had a pair that I had to "break in."  But these are almost there and I'm starting to get why people say that a good pair of boots are more comfortable than sneakers.  I always thought that was bull-****.

Also a top quality pair of leather boots are absolutely as comfy if not more so than sneakers.. but if you're gonna talk long term conform in boots I really think we need to talk socks..

RM Williams make the best boots in the world.

liked for the nostalgia feels. Used to sell them in Sydney and the tourists used to lap that **** up along with akubra hats. My 9-5 boots used to be blundstones but I abuses the **** out of those til they fell apart :lol:

As I said before, I ended up picking up a pair of Chippewas.  Today I sprung for a pair of Doc Martens.  They aren't exactly a macho man's boot, but they are good for tending bar in.  I needed some new footwear for work and I needed it in black.

I've been wearing these Doc Martens since I got 'em yesterday, making sure they're broke in before I go back to work.  I went to the grocery store in them last night and later walked a couple miles.  And I've been wearing them around the apartment today, though I normally don't wear shoes indoors.  

 

These sissy, little emo-raver-lesbo boots with their frail, little paper-thin leather and their "air soles" are starting to grow on me.  They might not exactly be the right boots for a SHTF scenario or going out anywhere that isn't gay-friendly, but I could see where they would be perfect for tending bar.   Lightweight and seemingly easy on the feet.  I haven't tested them out yet, but supposedly they are resistant to all the sorts of slippery situations I would encounter in a bar.

 

For tending bar, and only for tending bar, they were a decent purchase.

Go minimalist, soup. Let your feet be feet...as you know from the fitness thread I climbed a mountain in flip flops.

 

If the shtf, you need to be prepared to survive barefoot if necessary. Cosseting your feet in massive boots make them go soft.

Moccasins or really thin layer shoes are becoming popular among hunters because they are quiet and you actually get less blisters in the mountains. It's sound theory but where I hunt we have these little green bastards that make that impossible.

I got the originals, the 1460s.  The ones everyone thinks of when they think of Doc Martens.  Trust me, compare them to some regular 'old combat boots, regular 'old work boots or my Chippewas and you will quickly agree that they are not "real" boots.

I've recently done a lot of googling about what to wear when hiking and I've found that there is a movement toward hiking in regular 'ole sneakers.  And when I come to think of it, I grew up a very active boy in the country and was constantly on the move through the woods and the creeks in just regular tennis shoes.  

 

And semi-recently, I squatted in a house in Montecito Heights, California and I would leave during the day.  I didn't want to be there when real estate agents came by, which they did at least a couple times per week.  This was when I was really going bat**** crazy, so I was just completely lost and indecisive about what I needed to do.  I had the bulk of my things hidden somewhere and I put a few pairs of clothes, my laptop and anything I considered really important, just in case I got permanently separated from the things I left behind.  I would just go hiking all day through one of the many large and beautiful parks nearby, usually Ascot Hills (I didn't know the name of it, I had to look at google maps first.)  I'd hike all day with a heavily packed bag.  Anyway, I wore on my feet nothing more than some cheap, 'ole low-top Converse All-Star knockoffs from Walmart.

Yeah, all this ankle support nonsense basically assumes that the human body has gone soft and can't cope any more.  All you need is something to protect you from puncture wounds and from getting cold and you're good to go.  These tribes that travel miles a day wear virtually nothing on their feet.

 

This is why i believed you when you did that 50 mile walk.  The human body is capable of doing remarkable feats of endurance without much preparation.  It's what we're designed to do.
