Why is it so hard for me to find a pair of boots?!  :poh:  I have been trying on boots of all sorts for the past 2 weeks and can't find anything I want. When I finally do find a boot I think I want they do not have them in my size. When they ordered they the company cannot get the boots to the shop because of the dock worker strike.  :rant: I'm losing steam trying to find a dang pair of boots.

I think my bro wears a 16  :think: and has a heck of a time as well.  Good luck Capt, your sure to get squared away soon enough.

I wear a 10 normally and I feel like I have a really tough time finding anything in my size because its very common and everyone buys them up.

Newest thing at school is to make fun of guys for wearing work boots :think:. Yeah sorry I don't want to wear LL Bean boots and skinny jeans like all of you guys :facepalm:. They don't work nearly as well when stupid smurfs leave me with the need to skillfully place said boot in a rather specific spot(if you get what I mean)

I know what your saying. Dumb kids making fun of someone for what kind of shoes/boots you wear is just ridiculous.

It's interesting how much of a different choice of boots you guys over there have to us.

After trying on countless pairs of Redwing's and Irish Setters I literally could not find any that fit me properly. It was probably a 3 week process. I decided to look into some other brands and could not find much that met my requirements, feel, and look. Today the long search is over! I bought a pair of boots that fit like a glove and am quite happy with them. I have only had them on for about 30 minutes, but I am quite pleased.

Those boots look great. :tu:
This winter I have been wearing caterpillar boots for work. Whenever I go out on a jobsite I have to change into safety boots though. The safety boots I have now are made by cofra, and are all syntetic and really uncomfortable, so I just ordered my self a pair of leather V12 safety boots for the spring season.

Those look really comfortable, durable and also a pair you could wear to work when you need to dress up.

Thanks. After the first few days they are breaking in nicely.  :tu:  I ended up taking the frilly looking "lace protector?" off.

I know people who have got on well with Ariat riding boots and I've been pleased with my Ariat chaps  :tu:

I've spent quite a bit of the last few days in our cheese making area which means I can't use my normal, comfy boots and have been in some cheap white wellies. My goodness didn't my legs tell me at the end of the day! All the regular staff in there have decent boots but I spend so little time in there it's not really worth it for me.

About the lace flap things. I was told that they serve two purposes. First off they used to flip them up to protect the laces when going through bushes and thick stuff that would normally tear their laces. Second, it is used as a indicator to when you should oil your boots. When the tips of the frills start to curl up you need to oil your boots. This is just what I was told by the guy at the boot store though.

I have only had mine for about 10 days and they are already broken in enough to not get uncomfortable if I wear them all day.

Just a mini rant here. The stitching on the inside of my new boots came out a bit and the plastic piece on the shoe lace fell off. Why do I even buy expensive boots if they are going to fall apart like a cheap pair?

I believe they should be covered under warranty, but it is just a pain in the smurf to always have to go through warranty claims on everything I buy and i'm smurfing sick of it.

I swear it's this place, once you join here you will begin to have things break. I never had to warranty anything(other than hockey sticks) before I came here. I join and now I've had lights give out, bags give out, smurf even the expensive insoles I got that were rated at "over 3000 pounds" didn't survive a month!!!

If there was a purchasing option that said no warranty, but our smurf will actually work. I'm picking it 10/10

Well some bad news on the boot front. I took them in to the place I purchased them from to see what can be done. I was told they could be swapped out for another pair (which I did not want to do). Then I was told I could take them down to a local boot shop and have them fix it and they will cover the bill. Great! I took them down and the guy told me he could not fix them.  :( So back to the shop. I wanted a refund. They told me I could not do that, but I could get another pair of different boots and they would refund or credit +/- whatever the new boots cost. Sadly I tried on every boot in the store and nothing fit correctly. I convinced them to give me a full refund which is great, but now I do not have any boots. I went to the Redwing store to see if they got in any of the back ordered boots I was interested in, but nothing had come in. I finally found a pair that fit comfortably, but just my luck the moccasin toe was sewn on way off to the side and the boots looked all lopsided. Even the guy who owns the store confirmed they were sewn improperly. So now i'm back to square one. I'm so sick of this crap.  :rant:
