At my place of work, I can get $100 dollars towards a new pair of boots every 6 months. I should probably start a collection.

Shoe Factory-Seconds

Get on it.
I've been wearing my factory second dress boots in a decidedly non-dress fashion for the last 6 months, and they are holding up very well.
I also really like their boot polish.

Allen Edmonds also does a nice military discount if you call them or visit in store. In my experience they were willing to do the discount on top of the factory second price.

Boot update:

A little under four years into ownership, I have had to replace the laces. This is the first (and only) issue I have had with them. I have no complaint against a set of laces that lasted this long.

The boots themselves are still in perfectly serviceable condition.

I am just utterly astonished by the quality of these. I don't kick concrete forms into place for a living, but I do wear them every single day. I used to get about a year out of a set of Timberland "pro-series" Titans. The insoles would typically disintegrate at about the same time that the glue holding the rubber soles separated from the uppers.

No such bullshit here. These boots seem to be made of indestructium. The stitching is still intact and waterproof, and the insoles are still in one piece.




They're big. They're heavy. I had to adapt my car a tad to accommodate them (by removing the rubber pad from the clutch pedal, so that the left foot can fit into the dead-pedal space to the left of it. Mind you, size 14. Smaller sizes would likely not have this issue), and I just utterly love them.

I just cannot rant enough about how much I love Red Wing's "Irish Setter" brand. I'm going to order another pair of them just as insurance in case they decide to discontinue the model before these wear out.
