It’s a Boot Time

Hi, I’m Nick! I spent weeks researching my first pair of boots, scouring Reddit and message boards and seemingly-paid-for magazine articles. But what I wanted was an authority, a resource where I could read the most in-depth reviews and stories about boots, a place that explored not only the manufacturing and the welting but also the culture and philosophy behind the boot.

What makes one pair different to another? What’s the story behind them? I don’t just want to know what they’re made from, I want to know what made them. Many years and endless new pairs later, I still couldn’t find the kind of content I wanted to read.
