Nice boots but overpriced imo. I’d rather get wolverine 1ks for like $200 plus less.

Or even Allan edmonds boots with the current sale.

Well at $200 they’re worth it lol.

For protection I load up on red wing cleaner, boot oil and protectant.

GTA Shoe Shine did these 2 pairs for me. The black pair had a major scratch that he was able to fix along with 2 minor scratches. They look brand new again.

Excellent repair indeed on the scratch.

It's good to see the standards different cobblers have. If you follow the Pro guys on istagram, you'll see them. Unless you went offroading after they were returned, it's funny, he didn't bother (unless it was a separate fee you cheaped out on?) sanding & repolishing & painting the brim/sole. The mirror shine is pretty good. But once you've seen the stuff from @vrublevskiy_alexey & @shoespatina (my latest follow), Nothing compares.

& btw I feel your pain, Deskwork is not made for dressy shoes....Sharp edges, chair casters....they're all butchery hazards for polished leather :(. Regardless to where you experienced the trauma.

Anyone have any recommendations on a decent pair of unlined chukka boots for <$500? I still have a pair of the Aldens in tan (got it at $300 USD a couple of years back) but the suede is quite well worn.

Most of the scratches are from airplane seats. Chelsea boots are easy to take on/off at airport security and they're comfy like slippers.

Funny you say that. I've read comments that Pilots complain about the cockpit being a slice & dice affair on shoes.

Mmmmmmmmm....nothing helps me drift off into sleep than the aromatics of toejam socks on a plane...;)
