    Different strokes for different folks. "Girlish" was definitely not one of my impressions when I saw those... :cry: Anywaysssss... Are your Boondockers on their way, b_F?

    Nah, I appreciate the honesty. Still like those boots tho.

    Nice, really looking forward to some pictures and infos on sizing. Are you gonna dub them right away?

    No I won't dub them. Did it with another pair of cheaper Service Boots. Wanna keep this nice and rough :)
    Will confirm you the sizing (although they are supposed to be a christmas gift ;-) )

    And now they are back in the box as they are a christmas gift to me. So I will tell you how they are in 2-3 weeks :)


    PS: they fit just right from what I can tell slipping in them for a minute

    construction looks well build and crafted (according to my not so well trained eyes....)
    anyway, enjoy your new boots T!

    Damn, I wanted to say as well "construction looks good". Now let's see if they suit you, why not choose the AI and TFH shirt together with them boots?

    thanks guys and girl :)
    I don't know what you wanted to say exactly with that, but I don't see a reason not to wear my AI and TFH shirt with them :-D

    thanks guys...but i somehow love the new leather laces in the clarks...looks way better imo as the old plain, boring brown ones they came with.
    and i haven´t worn the yuks with those laces yet, so i have to see if they are long enough or if i´m comfortable with´em...just greased the old leather laces and i´ll see in the morning if i´ll change again or not...but for now i think they look just right!

    I'm assuming the cheaper $80 Clarks Padmore Wally's with the red Clarks tag on them are cheaper for a reason? On websites where I've seen them there's definetely a seam in the suede and the crepe sole as well as what looks like a crepe ring sort of design going around the sole. Any you guys have any experience with these? I think they look like they'de fall apart with the quickness..........which would explain the price. Thanks
