Amber Harness with Vibram sole
I initially bought the wrong size at the suggestion of redwing, but thanks to a manufacturer defect they replaced my boots with the proper size and can give an accurate review. With the proper sizing the boots only required a few hours to break in. I now wear them 4 days a week and use cedar shoe trees inbetween wears. They’re developing a nice patina and the QC seems fairly good. The leather is creasing significantly where the foot breaks, most likely due to my particular cut of leather. As it’s only been a month I’ll be back to update the review at 6 months of solid wear.

Brown Chrome Leather Captains
Length: Slightly Long
Width: Slightly Wide
The fit of the Thursday Captain boot is snug on the sides at the start, while being a touch long for me. I went down a half size from my sneaker size. Initially this was fine but after breaking the boot in and really wearing it I needed to put an insole and wear thick socks to make it fit snug like before. The first few years of ownership I only wore the boot a few times through the year, but recently put it through its paces. The sole is holding up rather well and the leather is developing a very nice character to it. The creases are very fine and make it look quite nice. The major issue I am experiencing are in the overall fit and the durability of the glued on insole. The fit while a perfect snug when I first purchased due to the boot running rather slim has broken in to fit my foot rather loosely when wearing. The foam insole that they have glued in has compressed completely and begun to peel in this time as well. This was solved with a pair of leather insoles and thicker socks. Overall I still recommend the boot, for its price it is very comfortable and holds up rather nicely. I have had QC concerns with my order before but Thursday has been very quick to address them and easy to deal with.
