Hello fellow boot lovers I’m rocking a pair of Last & Loom type 6 that I had custom made to look similar to the Dayton milkman boots , Hemi has used muted coloured leather and I think he has nailed a great representation without doing an exact copy .
So good luck everyone else and happy trails .May 24, 2015 at 11:40 am #4086
Sorry I didn’t get a straight out of the box photo but this is a couple of hours later feeling good about myself foot selfi .May 26, 2015 at 7:19 am #4143May 26, 2015 at 7:20 am #4144May 26, 2015 at 7:21 am #4145May 26, 2015 at 8:22 am #4148
The sun just never came out to get some good before shots so the easyest solution for me is to pilpher photos from the man that made them .

So iv had my boots now for a month and thought I’d do a short review .
straight out of the box you can tell that these boots are going to take a bit of endurance to get past the break in stage , they are a mighty heavy gauge leather with very little give , I took a gamble and went with the rubber/leather combo with the sole as I will be doing a ton of cycling and wanted something more forgiving with the constant pressure from the peddles , and did I mention that they are heavy , I have my great grandfathers military knee high riding boots and I am sure the L&L are heavier .
My first attempt to put the boots on was a bit stressful as I have a pre existing foot injury compliments of a work accident , long story short I have about eight pins in my foot due to a partial amputation and reconstruction ( do we need to see a picture ? ) and this made it quite difficult at first to get my right foot in as I have already mentioned how unforgiving the leather is , so for the first week I placed the right boot on the hydronic radiator ten minutes prior to putting them on , this made the leather more plyable and with a bit of force I could get it on , once on they felt great from the get go , iv worn them almost every night for about two hours and most of the day on Sundays , they are the first boot iv ever owned that have never given me blisters in the wearing in stage , they are not officially worn in yet but are showing great signs that they are almost there .June 8, 2015 at 8:05 am #4497
Standing in my boots for four hours of delivery has set me back a bit in the gradual break in period , my feet need a salt soak ” dare not tell the missus after what she went through ” . I think I’ll need to work up to a big walk . I’m wondering if mega would mind if I did a big cycle around my town instead of a walk ?July 19, 2015 at 8:04 am #5145
Today I have completed the first challenge of doing a one mile walk in my neighbourhood , as I’m doing this in conjunction with the denim challenge I’m doing my walk a bit further out from my home .
My boot challenge walk is a rainforest hill trek about 30 minutes drive from my bayside home .
