BOOT PORN

Today it's just pure boot porn...
I thought I'd get a shot of all my boots that all get use.
Top Row:  Wesco Custom Boss 1950's style, late 80's Jungle U.S. Issue, Bottom: Ultimate Indy's from Leather Sole HI, White's Semi Dress - semi custom, original Alden 405 canvas lined Indy's.
I love the look of a well used and well loved boot.
I use the Army ones mostly just for mowing on Saturdays...  Well, nothing new here, just boot Porn for the guys who love boots.    After a while if you're into boots you'll find you'll start getting a collection going... but it's okay... It's good for you.  It's Vintage Gear for Guys!

  1. I really like your boots' collection
    I have alden 403 and now I am going to buy White's semi dress
    But i don't know about the white is it true to size or run large
    If my indy 403 is 8D do you think what size i should go for the white's
    8 or 7.5
    Thanks

  2. I went a half size smaller, when I first went to Whites they told me to go a whole size smaller, it was just too tight, I then ordered my SD in a 10 1/2 D. I wear my 405's in 11 C. So for me, I went 1/2 smaller but from a C to a D. I'm pretty happy with them, but it would have been great to have actually been there and tried on each size instead of ordering them. I got my second pair from Whites direct that sell on ebay. Might be a good place to look and save a bit.

  3. Hi. Thanks so much for these pics, which are great. I am right now trying to decide between ordering a pair of Indy boots or White's Semi-Dress. Clearly, both are great boots, but I wonder if you can compare them with regard to comfort and support. I will plan to wear my next pair of boots 3 or 4 days a week for the next decade (I hope), so that's important.

    Thanks

  4. Tough choice. The Aldens are more like basketball shoes and the White's are more like heavy duty shoes. Both weigh about the same. I'd imagine the White's will hold up better over time than the Aldens, but the Alden's over all are probably more comfortable for walking. The White's are more supportive with their arch support. It's a tough call. Pick the ones you like the looks of better...
