Here’s a great little project we were working on the other day. The white heels on these Dayton Drivers were painted black to look like Toughies; the poor things were starting to peel right off. Someone attempted to use the time-trusted Sharpie-marker method to patch…
Oooooh Beautiful! The patina that has been worn into these Daytons is phenomenal! Suede and pull-up leather – Wicked buckle/strap feature. The long-lasting quality you would expect from the Dayton Boot Company. Size 42 Item # 11790 Currently priced at $149 and dropping. Come on…
Once upon a long 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.
If this boot were built today, it would be so similar to the classic Dayton Black Beauty that it would be called a Brown Beauty. Back in (circa) 1970 they called it a Mustang, and the box says Dayton “Circle D Ranch”.
Unworn, unwalked-in. Vintage bull-head stamp on front of shaft. Biltrite heels. Leather soles. Just awoken from that lonnnng sleep. Brand new in box (BNIB, as they lyrically say on Ebay)
Size 41, 8.5 mens’, 10 womens.
#7929, $589 not-cheap-but-utterly-worth-it dollars.
Do you know a set of quadruplets who share a thing for nice Dayton boots? Show ’em this page, then, because I have four sets of boots, all sized alike, that would suit all four identical quadruplets. They could switch, depending on what their four-part…
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’ on below your ankles.
As a plus, they look unisexy good with jeans, dress pants, manly kilts, and womanly sundresses.
Size : men’s 7, women’s 8 or 8-1/2
So there’s this insider story I can tell you, at least until someone sues me for trade secret something-something. It’s about Wings + Horns, a high-fashion hipster shoe company that commissions boots from Dayton, a local boot-making company with a long, long tradition of producing…
These don’t have a stock number because I’m trying to decide whether to keep these for myself, honestly. They are the sweetest, nastiest, funkiest, most eye-catching pair of Daytons I may have ever seen. And they fit me. Hmm. Size 9.5M, give or take. They’ve…
These beautiful round-toe motorcycle boots were first worn by a caveman biker back in the early days of footwear, and have made it through the ages intact. Would pair nicely with a rough-hewn wooden club.
From noted boot aficianado Dr Z; “These boots evoke the spirit of a pterosaur-rider on the open road. Pterosaurs are also incorrectly referred to as “pterodactyls”, particularly by journalists.”
But seriously, folks, the uppers in these well-used boots are in beautiful condition, and will last another 30 eons easy. The soles are worn down and somewhat smooth, and I can see a resoling in their future, although if you’re the kind of rider who prides him or herself on never touching foot to road and living entirely on the saddle of your hawg, they’ll never wear out.
$20. No, I didn’t slip a decimal point.
