It’s a Boot Time

Hey, I’m Nick. When I moved to New York and needed rugged footwear for the first time in my life, I spent weeks researching my first pair of boots.

I scoured Reddit, forums, 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 the well worn, a place that explored not only the manufacturing and the welting but also the culture and ideas behind the boot.

I don’t just want to know what they’re made from, I want to know what made them. Many years and countless new pairs later, I still couldn’t find the kind of content I wanted to read.

That’s why I created Stridewise.
