I love shoes but as I get older I find myself more drawn into collecting boots. Do we have any fans of boots? Boots are very versatile. You can work in them, yard work and polish them up for a night in the city.
One of the best boots are Redwing Boots. My favorite models are the Beckman and the Iron Ranger. These boots from Redwings, over time will feel like a baseball glove. Unlike sneakers, which you want fresh, the older and more broken in the boot, the more stylish they are. Redwings are made in the USA and they have warehouse where you send your shoes to them and they re-sole your boots for you. Best of all...they waterproof.
Beckman (squared and rounded toe)
These boots that I mentioned above are $300 and up but the quality is fantastic. Made in USA and probably the only boot you will own. I love the cigar color and the tan color.
Honorable mentions: Alden, Wolverine 1000 and Timbs.
