    Yours definitely look great :)

    Anyway, I found these OrSlow on sale at less than half the retail price and pulled the trigger:

    I hope they fit. I’m by no means an expert but they look like monkey pants without back pocket.

    I have a pair. Dress boots quality, well made but not to function as hardcore work boots. Leather supple, Cat Paw's heels are nice looking but loose grip when wet or on slippery surface. Comfortable walking boots much lighter than White's, easy to break in.

    Can you compare their sizing to any other brands?

    Never worn a pair, but I’ve always thought they looked really cool...

    Took a good walk around my hipster neighborhood wearing Thorogood 1892, came home to find Colchester 1892. Good year.

    Thanks for the tip! The blue leather look great, unfortunately they are out of 11.5 D. Picked up a pair in blue suede instead. Said they are imported though. Wolverine has the blue suede on sale on their web page for just a little more money made in USA. Any thoughts?

    I think that the rack prices make me feel that somehow I am losing money if I don’t buy them.

    I compared my size 8.5 Lone Wolf to my size 9 Red Wing Postmen and they look to be of the same length. I would therefore say they are half a size bigger than Red Wing and they are in E to EE width. I however usually have to go one size up on Red Wing and Thorogood etc D width boots anyway because I wear EE to EEE. My size 9 Postman are a bit tight while the Lone Wolf fits comfortably.
    Incidentally, the Lone Wolf Mechanics and Toys McCoy Surveyor are the same in terms of size (length and width-wise) albeit having different last.

    I get buyers remorse, but can easily return Rack purchases. ;-)

    Nordstrom Rack is also offering Frye's John Addison Harness boots for a mere $250.00. They've been torturing me all week.

    For the price, I don't think any shoe I have compares with the boots I got from Thursday Boot company. They look great with my Aero Highwayman, and are about the most comfortable boots I own.
    Seriously worth looking at.
