10 Quality Men’s Boots That’ll Last For Years
Quality men’s boots are naturally the perfect companion for the colder months. If you invest in one or two really good quality pairs, they’ll last you winter beyond winter – especially if you care for them properly by applying leather protectant on them before you wear them, plus every so often throughout their lives. Different styles work in different situations and each brand has their own unique take on some classic cuts too. We’ve rounded up some of the best men’s boots that you should be investing in this season to last you years to come…
This signature style from Alden was made famous when it became the favoured boot of Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones movies; hence the name ‘Indy’. They feature calf leather uppers and have a full leather lining and insole. The Indy Boot also has a Goodyear welt construction, which basically adds extra layers of durability to the shoe and makes them more supportive during wear too. They’re a great style which will work well with most outfits.
Common Projects know good design. Their take on the classic chelsea boot is testament to that, with the dark grey colourway giving it a really nice, modern look. The boots are made of a premium suede with elasticated gussets on each side, and they’d be ideal in casual or smart casual situations with a pair of rolled up jeans. With suede products, it’s especially important to spray them with leather protectant because if they get wet they tend to stain.
This is a simple, cleanly-designed boot that you’ll get tonnes of wear out of. It’s made of a high quality leather with crepe rubber soles which are durable yet quite soft to wear, making them ideal as an everyday, no-brainer option in the colder seasons. The minimal lacing also means they’ll be easy to throw on when you need to be out the door in a hurry.
The Iron Rangers have both timeless style and superior quality. They’ll go nicely with a pair of dark jeans for day or night, or you can put them through their paces during weekend camping trips too. They’re made with double layer leather, a toe cap, a leather heel pocket and a Nitrile cork sole which makes them perfect for wet weather.
Trooper by Mere is made of a hardy tumbled waxed leather on a 100% rubber sole. The darker coloured sole gives it a point of difference from other military-style boots, and also keeps it casual so you can wear it for a number of different occasions.
R.M. Williams definitely know what they’re doing when it comes to constructing leather boots, and this style is a total icon. These are handmade in Australia with a smooth, high-quality leather upper and a leather and rubber sole. It features signature R.M. Williams pull tabs on the openings and elasticated gussets to make it easier to get in and out of them.
The perforations in these brogue style boots make them a really unique choice and add some nice dimension to their look too. The stacked wooden heel and Goodyear-welt sole make them a durable and comfortable choice for daily wear. Cheaney boots are handcrafted using traditional methods in the label’s Northamptonshire factory.
Probably one of the best men’s boots available at the moment, these are a great choice for when you need to go straight from the office to after-work drinks at the bar. They’ll carry your look right into the night thanks to their clean and simple design and slim profile, with the light perforation on the toes creating a bit more depth.
These highly durable boots are handcrafted in America with full grain, American hide. The high quality of construction and materials means they’ll make it through whatever you throw at them while remaining soft and comfortable to wear. They feature leather laces and Goodyear leather welts for added durability, plus the nickel finishing on the eyelets gives them a really cool, classic look.
These Wolverine boots are the perfect smart shoe for work or formal events in the colder weather. They have a simple, timeless design which will see you through years of wear. The reinforced heel gives it extra durability, while the low, stacked style of the heel gives it a nice, modern update.
