The Garrison Boot by Warfield & Grand – A Tale of Two Boots

There are plenty of boot and shoe companies out there whose sole concern (get it?) is making a product that looks expensive. But simply because a shoe has the lines of a John Lobb does not mean that it will fit or feel like one. All too often in the direct to consumer world, these … Read more

Is White’s Perry Boot the Best Value Moc Toe?

While perhaps not as widely known as Red Wing, Danner, or Wolverine, White’s Boots is a force to be reckoned with in the heritage boot world and is consistently ranked among the best of the best when it comes to hand made leather boots.

Review: Truman Boot Company’s Rugged Black Chromexcel Boot

This was my very first pair of Truman boots acquired in June of 2015. I wanted a standard rugged pair of black Chromexcel cap toe boots and these fit the bill perfectly with that beautiful 270-degree double stitchdown construction and lug commando sole. This was one of the original Truman models built when they were … Read more

Parkhurst Allen Boot Review: Dublin the Pleasure, Dublin the Fun

Like a young Wayne Gretzky hoisting his first Stanley Cup (I couldn’t afford the rights, but trust me, he looked excited), I raised my new boots towards the heavens awaiting my wife’s response. “They kind of look like your other boots,” is all she said. This is partially true. There are similarities, but that’s because … Read more

If anyone ever tells you that something’s bad quality because it’s made in China, you should direct them to Grant Stone.

Taylor Stitch’s Ranch Boot Review: Sleek But Solid

I actually quite like Taylor Stitch. I’m not sure if that’s a controversial opinion or not but while I haven’t written about them before, I can’t think of any other digital brand that does such a good job of making and marketing apparel that is both heritage and modern. Not a lot of brands pull … Read more

American Boots + European Boots = Rider’s Dundalk (Review & Discount)

Rider Boot Company! Not a company that makes horse riding boots, a company that makes svelte and snappy boots that’s run by Ron Rider and his family. It’s a pretty small outfit based in Richomnd, Virginia, but the boots are actually made in the Italian region of Giussano, between Milan and Como. The Dundalk is … Read more

Review: Rhodes Dean Boots Combine Work and Dress Boot

The Rhodes line of boots is a product of Huckberry, an online men’s store that the founders envisioned as “equal parts store, magazine, and inspiration.” It’s very mensy and very heritage, with a lot of old fashioned outdoorsy stuff like waxed jackets, leather jackets, selvedge jeans, and, of course, boots.  While most of their inventory … Read more

Wool Boot Review: Is YRX the New (Cheaper) Taft?

YRX. A weird name for a millennial-owned company that makes some delightfully weird boots. On the FAQ section on their site where the frequently asked question is “what does YRX mean?” they snarkily reply with “What does Nike, Google, IKEA or Sony mean?” So, I guess it means nothing, but they call themselves a minimalist … Read more
