    I’m gonna need some time to think about this... Hmmmmm.... 🤫 Uh-huh..... 🤨 Yea... sure. Why not? Here’s the story on the new Clark’s Desert Boot 221. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.gq.com/story/clarks-desert-boot-221/amp

    Desert Boots

    I guess the Luther does square off a bit around the toe whereas the Hi-Top may be a bit more tapered which may explain that. I hope you enjoy wearing them as much as I am enjoying wearing mine. The other day, a colleague of mine (a few years older than I am) came up to me at the office and...

    Desert Boots

    First off, congrats on the new Hi-Tops. They look great! Glad the “stretch” got you where you needed to be size-wise. You are right, there are subtle but distinct nuances that differentiate these two boots. The one that immediately caught my eye was the heel and secondly, the stitching...

    @blantyre Btw, great prices at Country Attire on both Sanders and Astorflex boots. Nice catch.

    Desert Boots

    I have fallen arches so I always like a wider shoe. I wear: Sanders Luther 10.5US. (Roomy in toe box and very comfortable. With a thin sock I could put a thin insole and get a snug fit (but not tight). Alden 9E (Barrie). Perfect. Alden 9.5E. (Aberdeen) Snug in toe box. Alden (Leydon)...

    It must have been our discussion that drove up the cost for these boots by about $15 from the time I purchased them about 4 weeks ago from the vendor I used. 😉🙄😀

    @Toothpick Jacks...doesn’t get any better. :thumbup1: @blantyre The Luther is pretty roomy. @OldSchoolYoungin definitely the most “old school” set-up. 😀

    This one certainly ticks all the boxes. It’s saddle shoe that wants to be a desert boot that wants to be a sandal. In other words... where can I get a pair? 😀 And obviously, I am digging these very much.

    I saw these socks advertised by Lorenzo Uomo in the ad pictured below. And I thought: “I like that. What the heck.” 😀 The desert boot really sold those socks. :yesnod:

    Footwear of the Day

    @blantyre This was my “shoe of the day” in June of 2020. That was possibly the last time I wore them. (No wonder my shoes last 20 years.) :lol: The AE Orlean nubucks (which I think are discontinued) definitely don’t see a lot of action. I need to get them into the rotation more often. It a...

    I just re-laced my nubucks tonight and then saw your post! 😳😀 What kind of laces are those? Original or new? I would like to replace mine.
