Couple pics of my 7 year old chukkas. Possibly past the acceptable threshold of wear for some on here, but they're comfy as fuck and I love em



The right one has always been more prone to creasing than the left, not sure why.

I have the lined chukkas and they have that, bruk's don't seem too. It's about 2-3mm thick white bit before the foam starts

Did for a bit when doing odd jobs for people, but mostly were used for walking to and from uni pretty much every day for four years

Red Wing store in London does resoling & repairs. Chukkas are £75 for original sole replacement, sort out any worn stitching, new laces & full clean. Takes around 7-10 days.

they do that with the Christy sole as its softer, outsole stitcher would shred it

Agree with noble, why not just get another pair (when on sale of course not full whack)

How do you get the lighter shade of those to dark brown, whats the best polish/oil to use?

Mink oil darkens them considerably, or the all natural boot oil does a bit more imo

so been after a techy hiker for years, finally ended up buying those stussy timberlands from a while back. I knew I would hate the thin fashion sole, and I do in actual so want to get it replaced. Never done it before. Is it just a matter of taking it to a reputable place and saying put thicker vibram on these?


want a no homo sole on em like this:


it's not gonna happen is tho it?
