Q&A: Who Makes The Best Work Boots For Men?

Hello, Everybody! Today I want to talk about it. Which is modern home study so a box just arrived via the post office with a Wynonna Minnesota return address on it that could only mean one thing you guys know what it is I need a moment here to soak in the craftsmanship and artistry. All right I’ve cut my breath we can continue on. So what you’re looking at here are the-the initial the initial production of my new logging boots and the reason why they don’t have soles on them is?

Who Makes The Best Work Boots?

Because Adam the maker of these fine boots puts them together and then we’ll do a test fit. So I’ll put these on tonight. He’s included a heel block that I can stand on and then we’ll communicate. What I like and what I don’t like? Make any alterations before he stitches them over. That’s a service you’re just not going to get from hardly anyone to be able to have a pre-fit like this is?

Just it makes all the difference in the world these are beautiful. So I had a lot of long conversation with Adam about these boots and exactly what I wanted? I want to discuss to you what makes these so special what makes them different than so many of the other ones starting with the pole loops. You’ll see this is really unique most boots are going to have a pull loop on the back.

I don’t like to pull up on the back and I never use it because it’s too small and I can’t get a gloved hand in it. This is so much better I’ve never had a pair of boots like this. But you can get fingers in there or gloved hands in there to pull them on Adam told me that the stitches inside of this leather a ballistic Cordura nylon that increases that strength that said you’ll never pull these loops out.

That’s a nice touch another thing that makes these boots really special is this inner liner if you look inside here. You see that this tan liner is made of a 100% elk hide and it’s one-piece Adam told me that he knew of four boot makers in the entire country that has the skill the ability to do a one-piece liner. There’s no stitching in the back if you look at your boots most boots are going to have to stitch clear in the back right there and that’s the first thing.

That will wear out on a lot of boots because your heel goes in and out and you’re taking 10,000 steps a day and you’re rubbing and rub on that ultimately it goes through the stitching and where is it out? There’s no exposed stitching on this entire boot. It’s all a one-piece hand fit liner all the way into the toe box and all al-Qaeda. I mean that’s beautiful and that’s absolutely custom and beautiful Adam told me that you can see right there between the cowhide and the and the elk leather.

He uses a neoprene cement that Bond’s those two together so you never have to worry about the two coming apart like those horrible Danner boots that have that gore-tex bootie that after you wear them for a while comes around and you go wiggling around inside the boots.

Some Things You Need to Know About The Best Work Boots

You’ll never have that problem here and that elk. It is so nice on the skin and so nice to have in content. You know being that’s in contact with your foot another thing that I talked a lot about is I wanted a boot that was tough. But athletic I didn’t want a big heavy clunky boot that I couldn’t be nimble in and jump around and really feel athletic. So one thing that he did for me and we do for anyone who wants to do boots is this? What is this heel counter? That’s a big stiff heavy cup that goes around here in cheap boots.

You’ll know you’ll start to a wall or around in them your heel will get all mushy. Because they use a real poor thin leather whites or westco’s or Nick’s will use an 8-ounce material around here and the Adam uses a 12-ounce material and what he did is he cut this down a little bit. So if you can see in there. I press this down right where my thumb goes that’s where that heel that’s where that heavy leather is and he runs mine down a little bit further.

So I get a little bit increased ankle movement. So I get at really a nimble and athletic boot and that’s a great feature. I’m really excited about that I can feel that as soon as I put it on just how good that felt Adam says that he makes takes everything that the best boot makers. How materials that they use it? He increases it by 50% and just it shows and everything that he does another thing.

I see he does is he uses brass nails in here brass will never corrode. That’s why they use it on ships in saltwater and that’s why ships bells are made out of brass. When you use steel nails and you have the moisture that the foot introduces. It’s going to rust and corrode. That’s going to rot the leather that’s good. It’s going to break down the boot whole these boots are made to wear for 15 20 25 years.

If they’re taken care of and with brass all brass hardware. You’re never gonna have to worry about that the shank material. I’ve specked out and I wanted a shank is right in here right over here under your arch that prevents you from if you step on a nail or something or a shovel prevents you from damaging your foot. I had a bad experience in a wildland fire with a pair of boots that had a steel shank in them that steel shank heated up
When we were mopping up my boots were just unwearable. I had to stand in buckets of water. So I expect out that he uses a heavy leather all leather. So there’s no steel in the boot for that to happen one thing differently. You’re going to get from Adams boots is since. He’s a small shop in a custom shop. He’s hand cutting all his own leather from his own hides. He’s not having someone else like the bigger boot shops.

Where they’re just going to cut out pattern after pattern and never put any consideration into the types of hides. You know hide animal hide his skin. It’s a living thing. Is different you know how? It reacts depends on how the animal was treated in the environment and a great many things. So he hand selects leathers that are most appropriate. You know he can he can choose grains and line things up.

Excuse me so that they are the best for that particular application instead of just a one-size-fits-all. These are beautiful you know the thing that was nice to deal with him is that asked me the right questions? You know and told me it asked you know what issues have? I had with boots and one thing that’s always bothered me is if you look. There’s a little bump on this boot is for some reason on my left foot my pinky toe just gets rubbed raw.

It’s always painful regardless of how good the boots have been and he bumped that out he made it just a little bit of extra space on there. So I don’t have whatever won’t have that problem in the future and you know that’s the type of detail you get four hundred and fifty dollars for a pair of boots like this is a deal. In my opinion, you’re going to pay that same amount for White’s or Nick’s or Wests. Because they are the most comfortable work boots at ShoesCast.com.

But you’re not going to get these features you’re not going to get a one piece outliner you’re not going to get hand selected hides. You’re not going to get this extra Custom Fit. You’re not going to ship your boots without the soles on them so you can be sure that they’re exactly how you want them? So you know for me and it’s a no-brainer. I can’t wait I just cannot wait to get the soles on these.

These are so pretty that I don’t even want to wear them out into the forest and I almost keep them for good but Adam told me I had to that that was not an option. That’s what they were designed for? So I thought I’d share that with you. So I’m going to call him. I’ll try these on tonight column.

We’ll go over the fit stand on the heel block make sure. I have everything right choose the sole. I want and man we’ll have one more post. I’ll show you when they come back in but aren’t they beautiful? They’re absolutely just beautiful Dallas are people rush. The gym is Jim Guthrie Megazord rush the rush Led Zeppelin wrote. I love this and see you again.

Review: AC556 Custom Kydex Holster

Hey guys coming at you with another holster review. Today, now Kydex holster review armed civilian 556 sent me a couple of holsters.

AC556 Custom Kydex Holster

I’ve been testing these out for the last little while one more so than the other just. Because that’s what I’ve been carrying and again. It’s armed civilian 556 that is his blog and I’ll put a link in above paragraph. I’ll probably put something around this area as well but this is just kind of a quick peek at the holster and you guys know I have become a big fan of the Kydex tough just love it.

These are really good looking holsters to before we go on too much further. Let’s go ahead and take a look at what it looks like underneath the shirt as these are specifically designed for concealment use. Right now I’m wearing the cap for the Glock 23 or 27 will actually work with both and I’ve got a strong side right here make it print just. So you can kind of see where we are but with this type of shirt.

You can see that it hides very well now this shirt is a little bit of a thicker cotton shirt and that’s what I find I have to use when I want to conceal an owl outside the waistband holster. But that’s what you’re looking at right there again this is the Glock 23 and one reason. I really like these holsters is? Because of the Kydex I there’s just something about kydex. I love it one you guys know I do a lot of backcountry type stuff.

So I don’t have to worry about it given you know the leather getting ruined out there due to the moisture in the elements. But more so I mean for them if you have to use your gun and you’ve got to reholster one of the best things about this is? It’s just so easy to put right back into the holster and your love them for range use these are really cool holsters again just give you a kind of a quick look of what it looks like underneath until is quite well.

I’m filming this it falls so the heavier. Clothing is starting to come out. You wear a hooded sweatshirt like this and this thing to just disappear in there again this is just kind of a ¬†reference of what it looks like underneath? What really aids in the consumer one of this holster especially for a g23 is? The fact that it rides so close to the body this particular holster is designed to three o’clock position.

It’s got a knife nice curvature to it and we’ll take a closer look at that once. We sit down and I take this off but you can see how close that rides to the body. Here’s a bit closer look at the holsters the one on the left here that is made for the g20 three. Which will also fit the g-20 g 27 like I mentioned before this holster is designed for the XDS. I’ve just got the g27 that are holding it up for me but you can take a look at the beautiful carbon fiber print on that.

That’s actually an overlay on top of the Kydex and you can see if you’ve worn it. It will wear a little bit and I’m okay with that I kind of like that look. But it’s a really awesome look the carbon fiber is very nice and you can see that. I have used these quite a bit already but this is the men for the three o’clock position and you can see the curvature.

Pros and Cons AC556 Custom Kydex Holster

It’s a very comfortable rig and happy with it as well I love when I get my hands on a good holster just makes all the difference in the world when you’re carrying concealed and you can buy it at the website:https://www.shootingaz.com/best-kydex-iwb-holster/. I’ve used the Glock holster the most and I’ve used it heavily. I’ve used it daily and mice concealed carry I’ve used it on many different shooting trips and it’s held up great. There’s no cracking there’s been no problems with it show you the retention nice snap into place and that’s not going to go anywhere as I hit tripod and just for good measure.

Let’s go ahead and put some 27 in there as well. That’s not going anywhere either because I so recently returned from front sight one of the things. I noticed there on many of the what seemed to be new gun shooters are the holsters. They used instead of sitting up close to the body like this a lot of their holsters are just hanging. I mean to the point where if this is my side this is?

How they have pointed the weight of the gun just pulled them off and they were just about like this? You will not find that with these holsters, which take the gun and they bring it right up against your body they keep it straight up and down and very comfortable to use both these holsters are designed for outside the waistband carry again. The Glock holster is meant more for the three o’clock position.

Whereas the CX 2s? I believe is what it is called this is designed. You can use it for the three o’clock but you can also put it a little bit further back to the four thirty-five o’clock position. somewhere around there, however, you like it but this works very well and either of those positions so that has music into both and I’ve used this on several shooting trips as well the holster for the XDS is?

No different than the Glock holster in that it rides very close to the body and keeps the gun high and like I said close and it is great for concealment quick look at the back and the small differences between the two holsters. You can see this one has a little bit higher sweat guard than the other this one’s a little bit more minimal of course. It’s not as big as a gun that’s intended to conciliar.

But I’ve been happy with both of these again having used this one much more. But I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend either one of these. Now armed civilian 556 has a large inventory of blue guns for those. That isn’t familiar with blue guns are just it’s a fake gun. That’s the exact mold and size of a real gun. How can he make so many moles? So he has probably eighty percent ninety percent of most of the common guns out there.

So if you’re looking for something specific he likely has it armed civilian 556 also mentioned that. He might be playing with some other ideas about holsters for inside the car those type of things. So I don’t know exactly how far? He’s got on those ideas or maybe he already has them in place? But something else that you might want to ask him and if you’re interested in some of that stuff that might be kind of interesting and fun to play with as well.

I think he does knife sheaths that’s something else you can contact him about and the best way to get ahold of him right now is to go to his blog page and guys. I wouldn’t be directing you there if I didn’t think he was up to the task of making good holsters and in my communications, with him, he seems like just a good. He will have a website up and go soon I think it’s in the process of getting done maybe at the beginning of November. So I will if I get a hold of that and it’s up.

Maybe I’ll come back and annotate this? So it can be you can be directed to that as well make sure to tell him that croc at twenty cents him and he has many choices of colors patterns. I think he’s got to turn around time about seven to 12 business days at least. That’s the last it was when he talked to me and they’re great holsters guys can’t say it enough go over there check it out give him a look. He’s got some posted up his holsters so you can kind of take a look and see if there’s something that interests you as always guys thanks for reading.

What’s up? We’re the QueridoBuenoAires, and this is the second half of a two-part series about how to book cheap flights. Part one is about the best booking sites. So if you haven’t seen that post, click on that little card up there.Read it, and then come back to read this one. Once you’re familiar with the best booking sites, keep the following tips in mind before you pull the trigger.

Number one; stay flexible with your dates. Shifting your dates of arrival or departures by a day or two can save you a lot of money and the more flexible you are, the more you save.Websites like Kayak or Momomndo make this super simple with tools that allow you to compare rates across the entire month.

Number two: travel when no one else wants to. Inconvenience saves money. Everyone wants to arrive a day or two before a major holiday, which makes traveling on those holidays or the day after much less expensive Nothing like celebrating Christmas at 30,000 feet And if you look out the left-hand side, you’ll see Santa Claus with all nine of his reindeer. Same thing goes with taking the earliest flight of the day, generally the cheapest, or the last one, known as the “redeye” for a reason.

Number three: switch up your destination. If you keep an open mind about where you’re going, you can save a lot of money. Some booking sites suggest where you can go for your budget and interest, while others have maps with airfares. For example, Paris is nice, but you can fly to Bogota or Copenhagen for a lot cheaper. Just keep in mind how much it costs once you get there.

Number four: mix and match flights. Sometimes if you’re flying long distances, it’s actually cheaper to book your connecting flights separately. For example, if you’re flying from New York to Paris, first book a flight across the Atlantic to maybe London, and then get a connecting flight on a budget airline. But, be warned when making separate bookings on different airlines.

If your first flight gets delayed and you miss your connecting flight on a different airline, you’re not going to get rebooked, and you may even have to buy a new ticket. No Bueno.

Number five: sign up for fare alerts. No one likes a crowded inbox, but websites like airfare watchdog send you notifications about discounted flights from your home airport, inspiring some seriously spontaneous adventures. Airlines also do this. So keep your ear to the ground by signing up for the mailing list or following them on social media. Number 6: know when to book.

Now rumor has it that booking on a Wednesday is the cheapest, but the jury is still definitely out on that one. What’s more certain is that booking six weeks ahead is probably going to be cheaper. However, if you know your dates for sure, book as early as possible, especially with budget airlines as their prices will go up as you get closer to the departure date. Another crucial tip is to put your browser into the incognito mode when searching for flights.

Booking sites often track when you come back to the same fare. and they’ll up the price because they know you want it. Lastly, you can redeem frequent flyers miles for flights But realistically, that’s a whole other subject. So stay tuned for a dedicated video on miles coming soon.

What’s up, guys? We’re Alex and Marko, the QueridoBuenoAires and this is the first post in a two-part series about how to book cheap flights. In part two, we’re sharing specific hacks. But in this first post, we’re going to show you some booking sites, which compare flights from dozens of different airlines all around the world.

When it comes to booking airfares, there are plenty of start-ups that will help you find the best flight. But, there’s a lot, and sometimes it can feel like trying to find a needle in a haystack. So these are our favorite booking sites: each one has different tools, which will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

So get ready to bookmark the following pages: Bookmarking! Start your search with Kayak.com, which taps into hundreds of sources to help you find the cheapest flight. Its simple design helps you compare or adjust dates and destinations. So if you’re flexible, you can save a lot of money.

Their explore function is a blessing for free spirits. You just put in your budget and browse the world map to see how much bang you can get for your buck. You’ll be surprised by the results. You’ll be surprised about how good you feel at Men’s Warehouse. You’ll look good. I guarantee it. You’ll be surprised by the results.

Number 2: Google Flights. It’s Google, so it is fast. But the results are not always the cheapest. Its speed does make it really useful in the beginning when you’re changing dates and destinations. It’s great for comparison: a second opinion.

It also has an explorer map, which is Google maps overlaid with airfare, but our favorite feature is Discover Destinations, which allows you to choose your interest and budget and find out where you can go on that budget. For now, Google flights is a great research tool, not necessarily one for booking, but in the future with Google as the boss, I’m sure it’s going to improve.

Number 3: Momondo is a solid site both well designed and functional. It presents your options with a bar graph that shows fares across time, as well as three options for sorting the results: the cheapest; the quickest; and the best overall. It also has the new Trip Finder function, which allows you to put in what you’re looking for and your budget. For example, nightlife in South America for 1000 bucks.You can then click further filters to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Hola, chica. Que tal? Vamos! Alex singing in Spanish Number 4: SkyScanner. Whenever we travel in Europe, our go-to search engine is Skyscanner because it pulls together budget fares, like Ryan Air and Easy Jet that a lot of other sites don’t include. Skyscanner also has an explore feature, which allows you to browse cheap flights from your point of departure. Unfortunately, it’s not in a map form anymore: it’s only as a list, and I personally find this a little bit less useful.

One downside of Skyscanner it that it’s really strong in Europe, but not so much in other destinations, although it is expanding into North America and Asia. Another crucial tip is to put your browser into Incognito Mode when searching for flights. Bookings sites often track when you come back to the same fare, and they’ll up the price because they know you want it. It’s shady, but you can beat the system with a single click.

Number 6; HipMunk Apart from having a “totes adorbs” [totally adorable] chipmunk for a mascot, it sorts your search results into sending order of agony which is calculated from price, trip times, and layovers. It then lays out results by departure and arrival time, which can be really helpful if you’re not too flexible on time. But, the filters don’t work as well as on other sites, so in sum, it’s better for people who prioritize saving time over saving money. Last up, we have Airfare Watch Dog.

This one is a lot different than the rest because it has actual people,,,, living humans, searching for cheap flights, not just algorithms To make the most of it, you’ve really got to sign up for their email notification so that when one of these real humans actually finds a cheap flight, they’ll send you a notification giving you a chance to pounce on that discount before anyone else does.

That means it’s not great if you have to buy something specific right away. But it’s perfect for coupon clippers who are willing to plan their entire trip around a discount. Remember, guys. It’s always a good idea to double check between multiple websites, and keep an eye out for hidden fees and baggage charges before you make that purchase. If you have any tips od your own, make sure you put them in the comment box.
