    Totally depends on the look you're going for. The Woolrich boots lean towards workwear, similar to Red Wings, whereas the Kentons lean towards casual dress boots, similar to Wolverine's 1K miles.

    Well I have the Stafford Gunners already. Wanted something a little more rugged/non-dressy.

    Get the Woolrich ones. The lugged sole will be more rugged than the Kentons.

    I agree with this 100%. In addition, I think they just look better (but I'm not a huge fan of plain toe boots in general, so take this with the appropriately-sized grain of salt).

    I have the iron Yankees and they're great. Don't like the Kenton's sole, even in black, otherwise its a very nice looking boot.

    Kentons look beautiful. What size are they if you plan on returning them? I missed out when they were on sale!
