call me cheap Todd, but as nice or as much as they are an "investment" piece (TONS of girls say their purses are "investments pieces"are BS to me, even if they are time pieces for watches...) i'm going to have to go with look alike....

That was definitely not my intention if I came across as calling you cheap. I made the mistake of assuming you wanted the actual pairs listed and hence I mentioned the front row of shoes itself are $1000+. I don't think anyone should spend money on materialistic goods such as clothing if it isn't AFFORDABLE to your budget.

With that said, "investment" pieces are realistic in the sense of Cost-Per-Wear.

Total cost of the item/ estimated number of days you’ll wear it = the cost per wear

Value, not low prices should be your focus when budget shopping. Remember a bargain is only a bargain if you actually wear it. Or if it's made of cheap quality as well.


edit: see if you'd be interested in OCS M1 desert boots for this fall, i'll sell it at a discount for a fellow fashionbrah. http://www.revscene.net/forums/67448...D-sz-44-a.html

Figure this thread would be just as good to ask as Where to Buy locally thread. Got Clarks DBs last year and wore them a bit during snowy season and noticed a bit of salt damage. Also noticed they aren't very water proof. Where can I buy something to re-weatherproof them for this year? And what supposed to be the best? Mink oil or beeswax or something else? The salt damage looked like this but I looked up online how to fix it to some extent

Sno-Seal from a military surplus store. Gorilla Surplus on Broadway carries it - at least they do online. Here's a link to an album of what CDBs look like with Sno-Seal (not my pics)

Be wary, though. The crepe soles that CDBs use soak water up so they aren't the best to use in wet conditions - your socks will still get wet.

No idea what to do about salt damage.

Chippewa boots, anyone have experience with these?

From the pictures they aren't quite as nicely detailed as Red Wings or Wolverines, but they come close and are available for under $150 at regular price or on sale for $80. They're handmade in America, and the quality is very well reviewed.

J.Crew offers Chippewa made boots around $300, and they seem to be slightly more detailed but fundamentally very similar.

When it comes to boots,just get Dayton's.They may cost more,but they will last you a lifetime and will never go out of style,they also come with a lifetime warranty too.

for that pricepoint (300-350), how would you rank the wolverine 1000 miles?

1000 miles are super comfortable. even the first time i wore it, it hardly needed any break-in.
also they are borderline dress boot. they use horween leather, and leather soles, so they are a bit more delicate than red wings.

Harry Rosen, stock depends on location (e.g. Oakridge didn't have Strands).

Get your foot measured on a Brannock, which calculates width as well as length. Any respectable shoe store should have one (even Sport Check has these). Compare your size to the AE a size guide on their site and check out their last information as well.
