ok that even looks nasty

Well well well, its been some time since I've posted here.  Hope everyones feet are feeling great.  Over time I've picked up a few more pairs of boots.  The first pair I bought which I showed I beat the tar out of.  I was not kind to these boots in any way.  I did clean and add protectant pretty regularly till the last year of use. 

Looking at the family pic the top row
1.Clark Chukka boots I got pre owned.  They were in such good shape I decided why not.  I don't wear them as much as I thought but they are nice to have.
2. I bought these in 2016 after my first part of Thorogood boots.  These are in amazing shape since I wear these only off days.  I was going to use these as work boots but decided not to. 
3. Thorogood I picked up to replace my original Thorogood work boots.  I actually wear these as my off day boots much like #2.

Row two

1 Merrill.  My original hiking shoes.  They are awesome and are looking great too.  I didn't snap a pic of the second pair I have that rotate with these. 
2. La Crosse.  I picked these up preowned.  They were in great shape so my intention was my yard boots and wet work boots.  I've used them for both and they are really nice.
3.Wolverine steel toe.  Another pair I got preowned.  Truthfully they didn't seem to have been worn much at all. I don't need steel toe shoes but for the price I had to try and they were my size.  Boot #3 above was bought to be a work boot but I found these and have been wearing them daily.  They are heavy but not a bad boot at all. 

Front. 

These are my original Thorogood boots.  What a heck of a life they've had.  I was going to have them resoled but I didn't as you can see.  Its now $125 so I took a hard pause.  Instead I bought boot #3 in row 1 then found boot #3 in row two.  I may still get them resoled since Thorogood boots have gone way up in price since I first began this boot journey.  These cost $130 then and are now $190.  I believe they are worth every penny.  Resole is $125 which is why I got the new boots. 

Higgins, I hope you are well my friend.  Been a while.

Dang, I’d say you got your use out of them, heck they have nothing let on the freaking bottoms!


My only thing with work boots is once I got a new job and because of my new job I figured I’d get me a nice new expensive pair, well I had them fitted and everything, 3days later I was in such pain to put my feet down, I threw on my cheap like $20 Kmart shoes cause I just couldn’t take them, I took them back and explained and they gave me my like $145 back, those were Redwings, later I did get I think Carolina’s which did last a good length of time.

Yeah I wore the heck out of my first pair.  They were so comfortable it was really hard not to.  8 hours in my Wolverines the other day and 20 total over the weekend.  These boots are not bad at all.  Add in some good insoles and you'd be set.

Nice selection of boots.

When I was in the Navy Belleville were my boots of choice.  I also had a pair of Redwings of wore into the ground, but they still didn’t look as bad as that pair of Thorgoods.  I let them take a deep sea dive because I didn’t want to fly them home after my last deployment.

The closet I get to boots nowadays, seems to be a pair of Keens.  I have had to pairs of Bedrock sandals resoled but they definitely wouldn’t count as boots.

 :D Unless what you do today requires boots sandals sound perfect.  I do love my Thorogood boots.  You can find me in Rainbow flip flops or Croc slides most day while at home.
