    AEO Rugged Lace Up Boot

    Anyone else grab these? They were featured on Dappered like 2-3 days ago:

    Link to the boots themselves:

    I got mine in today. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep them. Fit-wise they are similar to Wolverine 1000 miles. I grabbed size 10 since they didn't have half sizes and they fit just fine. I'm 10.5 in most shoes, 10 in Wolverines and AE Strands/Park Ave. They are unfortunately not as Tan as pictured and more of like a medium brown. The leather quality is definitely lacking compared to the chromexcel of 1k's but I supposed it is to be expected at this price point. Basically it's that ground up stuff that is painted. It at least doesn't feel super thin so they should be able to take a beating. Without the speed lacing you will take more time putting them on or taking them off than you would with 1ks or similar. Laced up completely there isn't much extra length to tie them but they did come with an extra pair of laces. Not sure if they're the same length or longer since I'm too lazy to take the laces off the boot to measure.

    The (intentional, I'm assuming) yellowish scuff marks as seen in the photos should be an indication of the painted on finish.

    My wife might kill me if I get another pair of boots, but if these get down to $30 clearance after Christmas, I'm going to jump on them for something to abuse until they fall apart.
