    Trying to break in my first pair of Thursday boots.

    Great reviews and they seem to be spot on with the quality and build. Looking forward to getting out with these.

    IMG_9634.jpeg IMG_7871.jpeg IMG_3159.jpeg Fair to say I’m a shoe nerd, maybe even more than I’m a vintage watch nerd
    Am cycling through these atm
    Ethnic Spirit pictured above- a few pairs- zero drop made from veg tanned leather and upcycled retired Guatemalan women’s ceremonial clothing- Blake stitch but resoleable (one pair already done after walking over 3000km in them)

    Have now convinced them to make a version with a wider toe box… prototype incoming


    Junkard waxed rough out below
    Indo boot maker
    Remarkable quality welted boots for relatively low cost and incredibly comfortable
    IMG_1703.jpeg
    Winson dress boot- pic at very bottom
    One of the best boot makers on earth
    Expensive but Indo made and therefore inexpensive relative to their remarkable quality - I bought these used
    Also have a pair of Loakes and one from Grenson- both good value picked up secondhand

    IMG_3345.jpeg
    Coupl’a pairs of Vivos
    These are resoleable in spite of not being welted - contrary to popular opinion- I’ve had one pair resoled after 5000kms
    Awesome barefoot option

    Finally a couple of pairs from Santalum
    Difficult order process and mine were not made to specs nor in a timely fashion but they resolved the issue eventually
    Chromexcel olive structured toe with veldskoen welt and local leather tan boot with same welt- both zero drop

    IMG_4639.jpeg IMG_7850.jpeg IMG_4635.jpeg IMG_4633.jpeg IMG_4632.jpeg IMG_4629.jpeg 80D96D0F-E441-4D32-A752-7CDBCD04C2F7.jpeg 9B6CA74F-5D49-4BDA-BD24-8152DFF85E14.jpeg A4CEC25D-14C9-4C5F-82D7-428F476133C4.jpeg

    Time to find one more boot maker to make me a couple of pairs- one in chromexcel and maybe one in Shell.
    Open to suggestions

    Had to exercise my Rods and Cones today, so NB in Summer Colors came out of the closet.

    Breaking in my first pair of proper English boots.

    Crockett and Jones Bond Skyfall Islay boots in dark brown Scotch grain leather.

    Who knew fine English boots could supplant watches so easily? :thumbsdown:

    And a jazz record collector to boot! I'm in the same boat. A degenerate's affliction for sure... As with watch collecting, tough to turn away from once bitten
