Indestructible, incredibly heavy jobmasters. No-nonsense and could probably survive a number of bomb blasts (all while looking pretty dang cool). Men’s 11.
Badass chocolate brown Durango kicks – just enough weathering to give them a little rough-and-tumble ‘tude. Size 8 men’s or 9.5 women’s. Come try ’em on!
EDIT: SOLD! (To one of my coworkers, actually. This job is so dangerous for the paycheque.) These beautiful barely-worn burgundy Kodiaks are just too adorable for words. Gorgeous supple leather, super warm (thanks Thinsulate!), and waterproof to boot (ha). Women’s size 8.
These boots are 6” high lace ups with an ankle strap, rough out on the heel and inner arch, and vibram soles…
These ankle boots are handmade, so shiny and so badass, and have more chains/buckles/studs/attitude than Sid Vicious would know what to do with. These are almost definitely the boots Lemmy wore to kick open the Pearly Gates. Cool as hell.
As so often happens, a carload of consignment leather and boots just arrived this morning as we opened the store. We lined up the boots (all sizes) and stacked the leather (mostly pants and chaps, some jackets), and now we’re going through it all to find out what we’ve got …
A pair of nicely worn #viberg #boondocker #service #boots. One has just been conditioned with Huberd’s oil. Amazing colour change! #rerides @vibergboot
J Leckie Skookum logger boots, from way back in the day. #rerides #vintage. Item 8278
These sweet little hikers go for just over $500 new. I’ve got them just barely beginning the break-in process, and or much less. http://www.danner.com/product/hike/mtn-light.html Also, some tiny Matterhorn hikers.
Size euro 41-ish (men’s 8.5, women’s 10)
Sparkling and utterly new and unworn. Not sparkling like vampires sparkle these days, but close enough.
These beautiful boots are vintage Pierre Paris logging boots from the 70s making them over 40 years old! They’re in fabulous condition and still pack a mighty wallop!
If you’re ever on your way to the Wild West, take these boots. They’ll save your life in a pistol-packin’ showdown, because the other cowboy will be staring your feet with his mouth open.
Sorry you missed them. You should have been standing here chatting with me when they came in. Do drop by to see what else is coming in.
#vintage Austrian military #boots, full hide leather construction. Size mens 8, women’s 9.5. $24 #rerides
Once upon a long long time ago, Dayton made some boots. They were tucked sweetly away to nap in a boot box, to await the arrival of Footprints Charming. Alas, Footprints Charming never came. Not for years. Not for about 45 years. Not until now.
New Rock boots! Size 39 ( 7 m, 8.5 w) #newrock #rerides #boots … item number 7973
It’s quite possible I covered the whole message in the title.
… and I just might have bought a bunch of the outfits from it.
Among the haul:
15 pairs of never-on-a-motorcycle BMW boots (futuristic cops) (Nope, 14. I just sold a pair while I was typing this)
Leather is a finicky material. It wears beautifully and looks darned stylish. But what if you get caught in a rainstorm?
The Vintage Shoe Factory, also known as Walk-Over, has a really long history in the USA. They started making shoes for men in 1758 in the shed next to their house….
What do you do when an Original Utilikilt swaggers gracefully into your store?
Anyone who knows me knows how I love a Fluevog. I’ve got some durn perfect condition deadstock unworn Vogs from the 90s, in roughly a size 41 euro, or men’s 8.5 -9, and women’s 9.5 – 10.5. The amazing rough-out sandals are smaller still, maybe a 9 women’s or …
I mean… Get ’em, the leather has an amazing tigerish patina! Frye, neutral brown, square toe, campus heel, leather sole, leather-lined, barely worn, size euro 42 / men’s 9, women’s 10.5. Rrowr, as they say in the fancy boot commercials containing tiger actors.
When these came in, I squealed with glee. Astounding patina, incredible construction, and in the small size so coveted by many of the women I know. So I took some lovely pictures and started typing this post. Then someone came in who felt the same way I did, and when …
