    Those boots look huge in the shaft area, will they lace up tight?

    Those took me back almost 60 years when the hip kids wore them to school, we called them "Tanker" boots. Very neat.

    Hey folks, could you please, please post the maker and model, if you know them, to the boots you're showing? Those look like Corcoran Brown Jump Boots #1510, AbbaDatDeHat. Correct?

    Sorry EPS:
    I didn’t want to blow up the thread.
    Doyle Shoe Co. Philly, Pa. circa 1955.
    I was very lucky and tickled to find these. They were never even laced and have the metal lace tips. Perfect in every way.
    I was amazed how comfortable they were first wear.
    And i love em.
    Be well. Bowen

    Very cool. I have pairs of both Corcoran 1500 and 1525, and I've wanted a pair of brown jump boots for a while now. Your older leather looks a lot nicer than what I've seen on newer versions.

    I love my Red Wing 1155s! I wear them even more often than my "true" cowboy boots.

    Well.....these were bought for the jobsite, so I imagine that's going to be the case here, for sure. They are comfortable enough, though, to wear all the time.

    Red Wing is not offering their version in the US & their Amsterdam black version is sold out. Not sure why, I think they are missing out a chunk of the market share of this style. But even if they do, the Thorogood is more robustly built (riveted) & has insert, with Horween, overall better material & comfortable.

    Break in progress shot of the Pecos 1155s. About a month in on these. They've been getting 3 or 4 days a week at work and some weekends, too. I'm enjoying these. [​IMG]
