Fluevog “Safety Vogs” engineer boots

I didn’t even know Fluevog made these kinda suckers. Did you? No, wait, I checked, and they don’t make them any more. The boots inform me that they’re “Safety Vogs”. Holy high-shine patent leather red accents fancy steel-toed boots, batman! Lined in soft tan leather, these boots are broken in …

Jeepers, inundated! I mean, SALE! SALE!

I just got in 50 pairs of boots in all sizes and a jeebusload of leather. If you come and buy something before I’ve done all the work of writing that particular sucker up and doing a wee handwritten tag for it, I’ll give you 10% off, just for saving …

Chaps. Very very fancy ass chaps.

So I’m usually kind of a chaps purist, and tend to enjoy just thick, black leather. But these have made me into a convert — they’re super fancy! Two colours of leather, black and tan (if you wanna feel tough in them, think Doberman). The leather is that sumptuous butter-soft …

I’m Westward Bound Bound

That post title was entirely too much fun to type. I’m packing up bins and bins of some rather nice leathers and boots to take to the Westward Bound conference, where I’ll be vending for the weekend. Come on by and see what I’ve got! (How am I going to …

What Rhymes with Dayton Sidekick?

Dayton as a boot company often produces some sweet, tough, long-wearing things in the way of feet-coverings. These sweet li’l Dayton Sidekicks, though, are also the dressiest shitkickers you’ll ever own. Shiny, sharp-styled, and even a little pinchy on the toes to remind you of what fabulousness you’ve got goin’ …

My sidewalk! Yay heavy machinery!

The city waterworks crew is carving a hole in the sidewalk 3 feet from ReRide’s front door (no, don’t worry, you can still get in to buy things!) and I get a ringside seat on the concrete-carving wheel thing and the backhoe-looking thing.  I’ve turned the music up to cover …

Tough, Heavy Wesco Boots.

Wesco boots are known worldwide for being made with remarkable eye to quality and last-foreverness. (I just made that word up.) Those of us with a fetish for tough, durable footwear probably already know all about them. These look like a Jobmaster 10″ lace-to-toe, which go for over $400 brand …

Winter Holiday Hours. I mean Days.

Hello, O Christmas Shoppers and other leather-loving folks. Here’s what’s what over the holiday: Until closing on Thursday, December 22, everything is business as usual. Starting Friday Dec 23rd, East Side Re-Rides will be closed so Elaine can dive into family, friends, feasting, festing, and various fun practices until everything …

Me and The Loved One checked out the Viberg factory in Victoria, BC, and I just picked up a pair of new Viberg boots –much like those pictured here– for my own personal feet.

Jeepers, these are amazing boots. They make even old-style Daytons feel like lightweights. I can’t wait to see what they look like with a few years wear into them.

Is the wearer of these boots nekkid?

Answer:   Probably not. So… about these boots, shown standing fetchingly on the sidewalk outside the store: Getta Grip hot black leather steel-toe lace-ups. Made in England. Sturdy, comfortable, heavy. The soles are screwed on (neat, huh?) When we’re talking about the British Invasion, these are the boots they’d tiptoe in …
