I've just splashed out on a pair of Wolverine 1000 mile boots, arriving this week...

Was wondering if anyone in Melbourne has had a topy put on a pair of boots before, similar to the below & can recommend somewhere good that will do this?

The topy is the half black rubber sole that's been added to the bottom of the leather boot

Please welcome a new member of this thread. After a whole lifetime of relative indifference to shoes, I've recently come to appreciate their awesomeness and and the value in having more than just a casual pair and a nice pair

Just got these when I went into Hype yesterday. They're the comfiest things I've ever worn! I also want to get the darker pair below, tried them both on for ages deciding.





Also got these for dressing up but when I want to go a little more casual than leather shoes.



Oh yeah...

Vans > Cons.

Cheers brah, they also come in a lighter colour style. And I completely agree with your cons summation.

Hi everyone, first time reader, first time poster.

I had a birthday recently, and my parents bought me this sweet leather jacket (coz they know i'm hardcore),

all my clothes are hoodies and jeans, nike kicks and shit like that,

what shoes and shirts and pants and shit do i need to buy to wear a leather jacket and not look like a douche (compared to my usual level)

sincerely

Deck shoes with such a high ankle defeat the purpose of deck shoes. Then again who actually goes on a boat in Australia anyway? No one, so they wear deck shoes for fashion reasons only, not work/safety.

With a good leather jacket? You can dress it up or down. Leather dress shoes and jeans or casual shoes. A decent leather is incredibly versatile.

Yeah, because my post 100% seriously implied that in a country with the biggest fucking coastline, no one ever goes on a boat.

you probably don't care, but they will go out of fashion in 2 seconds. the hiker boot inspired shoes are everywhere now, just like the boat shoes before them, which are now on the way out.
