I'm assuming you've never worn boots before so
Get the cheapest pair of black DM 1460s you can find they look good enough and are normie approved, are a relatively average so you can decide if you wanna go higher or lower, thicker/thinner sole etc. They're shit boots in them selves but are a good beginner boot. The leathers just good enough where you can learn how to care for leather but shit enough that its pretty hard to ruin them

That's fine by me as long as you're liking what you're getting. I personally don't shop at Walmart because the clothing is not of good quality.

That's subjective but if you feel that way about a certain pair of boots, more power to you. I hope you enjoy them as long as you can.

Theyre called memeboots because of how hard they got memed here like 6 months ago. Its obviously OP's first pair of boots so solovairs are far too expensive if he wears them twice and decides he doesn't like boots and even if he does he'll likely wreck them anyway due to lack of proper care

Ankle support is nice, thick leather boots are much warmer than sneakers (even with wool socks it's significant below like 50 degrees F) and they keep your ankles warm too. With proper insoles leather boots are just as comfortable as sneakers once the uppers are broken in. I wear boots probably 7-8 months of the year because I prefer the style, so pretty much as soon as it's cold enough for pants and boots I wear boots most days.

That makes sense but it seems to me that a lot of people here (in this thread/forum) are sacrificing comfort and functionality for the sake of appearance.

What is with this neo-nazi-bullshit about boots? Seriously. Black boots are a staple of fashion, they've been that forever. I wear my steel-toed, straight-laced 14-eyelet Doc Martens with no "funny looks", all I really get are compliments.

you shouldnt be cuffing your pants any higher than the top of the shoe or boot anyway. it will look retarded. when you cuff (or pinroll) your pants it creates a visual difference, it looks lighter than the pant color, so it just creates more attention to that area. if you are letting too much sock show also, then this will create a THIRD contrast of color, so now you have a huge clusterfuck of contrasting colors which will just draw the eye even more to it, it has nothing to do with height, it has everything to do with just wearing your pants properly and not complicating things.

cuffing creates complexity that works or doesn't. if you are already breaking one rule, suchas wearing dark navy blue jeans with black boots, then you dont want to draw even more attention to this, by cuffing. you break one rule thats fine, it works, you draw attention to you breaking that rule-----DOESNT WORK. pay attention to these things.

it's good to break rules, but in a subtle witty way.

why though? just cuz? i likes it? you need to be aware of all the variables that are in play, pant color, boot color, sock color, jacket length, shirt length etc. all of this plays into the success of the look. you shouldn't just cuff every time the same way by default. it should be used as an enhancer, as an accent, and done in the right way.

Go for Corcoran jump boots and use rubbing alcohol + a rag to get the intense shine off. Those boots are fucking fantastic; they're made of really thick and tough leather and have a much sleeker and more flattering silhouette. I got the 985s with the zippers on the sides and haven't worn my Austrian memes once since. They're a bit pricier ($100-150) but they'll save you money in the long run by lasting forever if you treat them right.

I need to get a nice pair of boots.

I like the aesthetic of pic related and link attached and don't want to stray too far away from that look.

My current two issues keeping me from confidently buying a pair (not specifically taking about link related) is that since starting to read about /fa/ boots, that people often say that leather boots aren't waterproof. This is really confusing for me, since my combat boots are leather apart from the soles, and are completely waterproof and have survived almost a decade of intense military use with me, so now I am weary about buying some new /fa/ boots. I need them to be street-tier waterproof, as I live in a really rainy city, but not heavy-duty outdoors-tier waterproof, so basically just enough to confidently and completely keep my feet dry if I step in a puddle or something. There is nothing that I hate worse than having to spend a day with wet feet because I stepped in a puddle.

Secondly is the price. I know the saying that you should never cheap-out on boots, but I am not currently financially ready to drop half a grand on a nice pair of vintage redwings. What are some places where I can look at a wide variety of boots and try them on in person, preferably specifically to Vancouver Canada?

Budget is around 200, a little bit flexible (I know not an ideal budget, but not ready to spend more until I get out of school and get a net-positive income)

Also, thoughts on boots with side zippers? Not really too big on them, but are they waterproof? I hear issues about the zippers not staying zipped up and whatnot.

Any additional advice, experience, info, and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

You can get some waterproofing for pretty cheap; it doesn't take much trouble to apply it yourself.

I got Clarks Desert Mali few months ago and they've held up well so far; technically they get listed as chukkas but they're a good bit taller than those are, and they don't look like chukkas at all. Broke in after just a day; pretty comfortable now and the leather feels soft. I wouldn't say they're slim all around though; they're definitely slimmer than Docs or Solovairs but not quite as slim as the boots you posted - at least in the toe. The rest of the boot is comparably slim.

https://www.amazon.com/Clarks-Mens-Desert-Beeswax-Leather/dp/B00V9S0AXO?th=1


You might be able to find some Chippewas in your price range, but again those aren't as slim as what you have in mind. They're quality boots though.

My waterproofing question came in regarding the type of leather or the fundamental construction of the boot. I have no problem applying the waterproofing material myself, it's just a question of how the boots are not waterproof. Like is applying the material to the leather enough? or is the boot's construction inherintly not waterproof or something?

>> No.12955332

>>12955219
Some boots will have openings that will let water through, for example if the eyelets are excessively large or if the tongue doesn't sit snugly within the rest of the boot. I'm afraid I couldn't tell you whether or not zippers will allow significant amounts of water through, but my guess would be that it won't be a problem unless you're actually standing in deep puddles instead of just stepping through them.

Aside from those kinds of openings for water, I think waterproofing the leather should be sufficient. (Of course, if the boot has sections which aren't made of leather, for example the elastic siding on chelsea boots, then it's a different story.)
