The insole in THURSDAY BOOTS are a f....ing torture, because one can feel the “ribs” there is no cushion.

I understand the distinction between a work boot and a dress boot, but I'm not really sold on the concept of a dress boot. They're not strictly dressy, so you can't really wear them with a suit; they're not especially weather resistant, so you wouldn't wear them in muddy rainy or snowy weather; they're pretty much just more casual footwear, of which I for one already have plenty. I can see the appeal for someone looking for a casual shoe, but can't imagine anyone having more than one pair without seeming affected.
VeryNormal SimplePerson (4 months ago)
The Bed Stu one is my favorite (although they have better ones on their websites). The JAMS and the TAFT choices are terribad. The brands are actually good, is just that gaudy designs...

Man, all you need is dr.martens, redwings, & thorogoods boots. And I'm talking work boots none of this fashion tight pants fagot shit.
tank2449 (6 months ago)
neither of these "men" have ever worked a day in there lives were they actually need boots. neither of them would last a day in logger style boots on the side of a mountain pulling cable. these are fashion shoes not boots
Gent's Lounge (5 months ago)
You should probably take that up with the people making the products. Maybe you should buy from companies that stick to their values as a brand and don't cater to every trend that comes along. Sounds like the brands you buy from don't care about you as a customer anymore. Or they just don't need you and the 1 pair of boots you buy from them every year for their craftsmanship and quality when there are 1000 other people that will buy from them when they can make things at half the quality. I'm with you that some companies cut corners and put out inferior products once they develop a reputation. It's shitty but it's definitely not our fault.
tank2449 (5 months ago)
why do you snow flakes have to ruin everything. my favorite makers of boots and clothes have turned from durable good stuff to hipster stuff and stopped making things as good as they used to. no Man would be caught dead in a "fashion boot".
Gent's Lounge (5 months ago)
A boot that looks good with everyday outfits and not just overalls and a Carhart jacket.
tank2449 (5 months ago)
what in the hell is a fashion boot?
Gent's Lounge (5 months ago)
These are fashion boots. We are a fashion channel. I think the video you may be looking for would be titled "Best Work Boots"

why don't people like the fact that companies make their boots in Mexico? Is it a problem with the quality of the leather or craftsmenship issue?

I really don't understand the snobbishness behind recording yourself telling people that your taste is the correct way to dress. Sorry, most of these are ugly boots.
Gent's Lounge (10 months ago)
Yet you don't think it's snobby to tell us our boots are ugly? Seems like a double standard. -G

Jonathan Tobin (10 months ago)
I usually spend a little over $200 on a pair of boots every year. The sv2 rockys. They will last through a 9 month deployment as an infantry man and still be good to use after. Hands down the best working boots ever
Ken S (11 months ago)
Those Clarks with the crape soles is horrible. falls apart too easily.
Stephen Imsong (11 months ago)
No there not work boots they never stated these would be. The title has the word fashion in them. Should know what to expect... to a certain extent

John Jacob Oh wow was going to type the same thing. They just hate that they don’t have the COJONES to wear boots like these when deep inside they wished they could.

I have a question does leather boots stretch out over time? Just bought me a Clark's boot it a little tight on me sideways.

Did you get the beeswax? The tumbled leather and suede ones are much more supple and comfortable than beeswax.
Steven Degli Angeli (1 year ago)
I love Thursday boots and I am going to buy a pair soon.
Robot Crafts (1 year ago)
Just because these all rise above you ankles.....shouldn't make them "boots."  I wouldn't classify any of these as a proper boot....c'mon guys quit pushing such hipster shit!  Gotta give the "chukka" (desert boot) a little love...but really!?
Derkmajirk (8 months ago)
Robot Crafts That’s why you get a cheap pair of boots when the weather is shitty or you’re doing some type of work outside. AKA beater boots. It’s great to have a nice pair of dress boots though on your day off when it’s nice outside, going to friends house, going to a family gathering, etc. I own two pairs of the Thursday Boots and they are incredible. You wouldn’t want to wear a nice button down, well fitted jeans and then have some dirty shitty boots on would you?
Robot Crafts (1 year ago)
I never mentioned....nor do I even wear Red Wings....nice boots though.  I'm talking about a  boot you don't mind getting dirty, wet and heaven forbid even scuffed....don't see you doing any of that in any of those....save maybe the clarks....again!  I feel like you guys know people generally don't classify any of these as boots or you would've put one of them in the thumbnail......and judging by the amount of similar remarks throughout the comments, I'd say a lot of people agree with me!  I understand and agree that there's a time and place for a wide variety of shoes/boots....but the video would be A LOT better titled as "best dress boots" "best semi-formal boots" "best preppy hipster shitty boots" (might not want to use that last one hahahaha!)  I don't usually troll or feel it worth the time to write on any video's.....but I've come to hope for a little more from you guys is all....hope you're loving life. peace

bamischijfje123 (1 year ago)
those shoes are made in the fucking 1th world countries. You know what you're spending your money on? labour, minimum wages. A machine and some tiny chineze hands could make a shoe and sell it for 50 bucks. Decent shoe, looks good, if it breaks, buy a new one for the next couple of years
bamischijfje123 (1 year ago)
Gent's Lounge definately not
Gent's Lounge (1 year ago)
Yea, paying someone a livable wage isn't worth paying a little more for...... come on.
bamischijfje123 (1 year ago)
how about all shoes should be under 250 and rather around 50 bucks. 250 that's rediculous. Look at what kapitalism is doing to you

Great video guys! I just wanted to know if you maybe make the same type of video but this time it revolves around loafers - penny loafers, tassel loafers etc. As I'm currently trying to find a pair but struggling. If not a video then maybe reply with some suggestions. p.s. this can maybe be a series on your channel

Eric Jonas (8 months ago)
Theyre not earthkeepers. Gent's Lougne.. it's pretty moronic and inconvenient to keep showing boots and not say what they are. You did it with the Bed Stu in this video. You did it with the Aldo in the last video. And now you have someone confused by your misused thumbnail, and asking what they are, and you reply "Aldo". Thanks Maybe next time just say the model. Stop giving us links that will stop working in a few months. It's easy to find these on ebay at a later time if we know the model. Not a dead link

Aware of the Thursday boots' quality. The rare area of the heel will fade very easily. I tried to put some AE lotion to cover the entire boots and the brown color fade and then dye to other parts of the boots and the rug that I used to apply the leather lotion.
