Aging records of boots~2022/5

It is crazy hot during the day and terribly cold in the morning and evening… Commuting boots are comfortable for the life of a Japanese office worker who leaves home after 6:00 a.m. and returns home at 9:00 p.m…. The boots seem to be aging well: ……………. cry

This month, you may think the weather is sunny enough to wear short sleeves, but there are cold mornings when you wo[…]


Redwing 9875 custom

I myself am a former gold russet, dyed black.

I think I see brown…but I can’t tell at all from the picture lol.

I wore these 9875 custom boots out to a neighborhood park.

With their origins in hunter boots, they are truly in their element on grass and dirt. Light and easy to run in, these boots feel like sneakers.

On this day, I chose to wear a classic outfit with loose-fitting straight jeans.


Jalan Sriwijaya 98490 

These are Jalan Sriwaya shoes worn for the first time this season.

The slippery sheen and leather texture are distinctly different from work boots. The reddish color is also a favorite.

It is matched without roll-up. Sleek profile. Still changing with age.

Rolled-up version for a more casual look. If you use bright colors for socks, you can wear them even in summer.

I was thinking that they could also be used for business occasions, but as usual, I haven’t had the chance to wear a suit.


Redwing 8131 Moctoe boots

The sole has already been changed to Vibram 700 brown on a leather midsole.

This is my favorite custom: practical and durable rubber sole, but also dressy.

I get pain in my pinky and ring finger after wearing them for a long time.

I hope it will improve with repeated wear….


WHITE’S Boot Bounty hunter 

This is the last Whites ”Bounty Hunter” to be worn before summer.

The boots themselves have great volume, which makes them a perfect match for straight jeans.

The semi-dress last gives these boots a sense of elegance, and I like this balance.

On this day, I paired it with slim jeans. Anyway, they have nothing to do with softness. They are the king of work boots that exude robustness.


Redwing 101 postman shoes

Ace of the summer, postman shoes are worn too often (lol).

Chaparral leather is really excellent as a commuting shoe, as it is no problem even on rainy days. They are really very practical.

The crease is getting deeper, but I think they are rather cool for work shoes.

This ease of use also allows you to roll up and enjoy the fashionable look of socks.


Redwing 8111 ironranger

I’ll wear them in the summer, too, the Red Wing ironranger8111 boot.

It can be a cool and versatile style that can be worn with American style or clean.

I will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the present and the natural changes over time.


Wolverine 1000mile boot

The Wolverine 1000 Mile Boots are coming to the end of the season without much wear this year.

The “silky comfort” is certainly true, but on the other hand, they are so soft that one feels uneasy about their robustness. It’s completely different from stiffness like Whites, or should I say work boots any longer…

But the softness of the upper that seems to absorb into the foot. The smartness of the single leather sole. The charm of this boot is clearly present in this boot.

Wolverine is the one that made me fall in love with boots. It’s still my ” Special boot”.



The calendar moves from May to June.。About half of the boots will be resting in shoeboxes, too.

Before that, annual mold remediation. Wipe all shoes with mold cleaner and dry in the shade.

Quite a spectacular view…

See you soon.
