        they look like shit and you obviously havent worked in them. if you dont need boots for working dont wear boots. if you need bots either get some western work boots or euro workwear boots like engelbert strauss

          >you obviously havent worked in them
          Yeah cause I just bought them for work

          don’t listen to him
          your first pair of boots will usually be shitty because you have no idea what you want in a boot. Make sure you oil them yearly if they’re leather. This will make them last longer and keep them water resistant / waterproof. I could wear them for 12 hours of working in snow and have them be dry when got home.
          When they start to peel at the sole, seal it with shoe goo.
          If they fit well enough you don’t need anything other than thin socks year round. In -30C canadian winters most people still just wear thin socks, because their boots fit properly.

          On your second pair get a boot with high esteem, and offers manufacturer repair / long term warranty, like Red Wings.

            So now you’ve established don’t know what back pedal means.
            I said you don’t look like you’re a working class hero. you brought up who paid for the boots, which is completely unrelated.

            Yep you were wrong. I proved you wrong and you are seething because you were made to look stupid

            So yes I’m right that you don’t know what back pedal means and you’re just saying that you ‘won’ because you feel stupid.

            You were wrong and you keep backpedaling and moving goalposts to deflect. You got embarrassed and are throwing a temper tantrum

            While claiming I’m the one back pedaling:
            You’ve moved from trying to look fashionable in work boots to – saying you need them for work to – saying you’re white collar to – saying well work paid for them to – saying you won to – saying I’m mad – to saying I’m moving goalposts
            While I’ve said : you need to stop pretending to be blue collar.

            Damn you were wrong immediately and all this afterwards is you stamping your feet after I proved you wrong. Sad really

            I can see you learned to ‘argue’ from poltards, where you’re wrong and try to annoy people into not responding.

            You literally said something wrong and then replied a dozen times because you were proven wrong. There’s no more to say than
            >White collar need these sometimes
            >No you don’t
            And you were wrong

            "my job paid for them"

            if that’s true (which it’s not) your job bought you a pair of dog shit boots with a plastic fake goodyear welt and some stupid ortho midsole, two things that no real workboots have.

            Some advice for the next time you rp as blue collar: we dont wear our dirty boots in cars with carpet flooring, we usually have the decency to put a rubber weathertech mat down + workers dont really wear workboots. at the overwhelming majority of jobs i’ve worked, guys wear timb pros and thats about it. they’re not great but its like more than a weeks pay to get a proper pair of nick’s or white’s. and before anyone says anything about redwings, their quality has gone down the drain so no one really wears them on the job.

            Wrong again. You keep writing paragraphs of you seething, but you keep being wrong immediately

            the whole point is that when job sites buy boots for guys it’s to protect themselves from osha i.e. they wouldnt buy those cheap pieces of shit

            Kek now you’re moving the goalposts to calling the boots ugly or fake because you first argument was dismantled. Embarrassing

    These leather LARP boots are cringe. I get boots from my job and they are clunky, worn out and ugly as shit so I would never use them in my free time. That aside western boots are cool af

    Also, these are safety shoes I saw at the work-shoe store the other day. They also come in a tan sole

    I don’t understand why people want to LARP as blue collar. I work as a labourer at a brickwork firm and if I ever walk into a shop to buy food or coffee in my work clothes people treat me like scum. Middle class people really, really don’t want to be around working class people. Caste is a real phenomenon.

    And if you’re trying to fit in with working class people for some reason even though you work in an office, you won’t.

        My work gave me a voucher for 250$. Which I used, and returned the boots I got to get a size down, asked if I could exchange for a pair they have listed online as they didn’t have much in store, and guy at counter exchanged them for a gift card so I could pick something online. The voucher only works for steel toed boots, but since he let me exchange for a gift card I could technically buy a nice pair of non steeled toed boots.

        But seeing as how I spend most of my waking hours working as a wage slave, and working at a place that ruins most of my "good" clothes I’ve started to just style myself around my work. However it’s hard to find good workwear/constructioncore inspo online. I’ve found that cowboy boots look surprisingly good when paired with baggy sweatpants tucked into them. Really any baggy pants work well, and thought about pairing them with a pair of baggy overalls. However, while I enjoy wearing generally loose fitting pants, they always tapper to a skinny fit around the calves/ankles (joggers) that I don’t think would work with cowboy boots. Your pants have to fill the leg hole otherwise you wind up looking like wood from toy story.

        My other option is going with an 8inch lace up like in pic related. I think the baggy style sweatpants I wear to work, that taper into a skinny fit at the ankle, would look good when paired with boots like in the middle. Steel toes always have an ugly "clown shoe" look, but I think my best bet is to just embrace it. Pants that are baggy in the thighs tapering down to a skinny fit at the calves and ankle, tucked into boots that are tight around the ankle and flowing into a big bulbous clown foot… I think it could be a look.
