I use to clean them more but as much as I walk on a jobsite the bottoms wear out and no matter how good I keep them they still wear out to the point they need to be thrown away in usually 3 to 6 months with an occasional pair lasting longer  :salute:

Well Steves not far behind you in boot cleanliness.   :salute:

They are relatively new,  I'll show some pics of my old pair tomorrow.

To offset the dirty ones, here is a very clean boot.

Nice!

I'm looking for these Floris boots but can't seem to find them. Same thing happened last year.

These are my "do all" chukka boots.  Grippy sole, gore-tex lined and smart enough once I've given them a clean. ;)  I've got plenty of other footwear, but they tend to be more activity specific.

I guess these Danner pull-ons would be my equivalent to those Chukkas. My go-to, 'do all' boots. They started out as Danner's, but they've had a few sets of replacement insoles and they are sporting their third set of soles (Vibram treads installed by a local boot maker). A bit scuffed and scarred, but still serviceable for daily use. I think they still have plenty of life left!

Nothing like a familiar pair of boots.    :salute:

Very cool. Danner used to be the hiking boot of choice 20 years ago, before everyone switched to what I call "hiking sneakers". I'd love to find a good pair of Danner leather hiking boots.

Nix, let's see the bottom soles of those things!

Heres what I wear.  Thorogoods, Merrel, Havana Joe ( made in Spain) I cannot recall how long I've had these, 20+ years.

Thundah, I think Danner still makes the "Mountain Light" model......quick google......




Yeap. I had a pair of these for years. Nice boots. I later switched to some Vasque Sundowners. I don't think Vasque makes those anymore, so the Mountain Lights might end up back in my rotation.

Oh, and my re-treads:

(In some cultures it is offensive to flash or point one's shoe soles at another person, so I've stuck my potential offending soles in Spoiler.)

Show content

New(wish) Vibrams:




Close up with boot maker's brass screws:





These new soles gave the boots a very different feel. I think the brass screws conduct heat fairly quickly, and my feet seem to get cold in these boots more easily if standing around outside on a cold day now.
