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.
