    A couple of my gal pals got me some Doc Martins for my birthday a year ago. Well, the heels came undone, tried gluing them back with heavy duty cement, and no luck.

    So I went out and got me some sweet new kicks today. I know a few guys on here run the Red Wings, so I guess I'm in the club now.

    Eager to break them in and see how nice they can be on da feets for work!

    Oddly enough, I always go with a 13, but for some reason the 12 double wides fit a lot better than the 13's...

    Probably because they're double wide like my trailer!

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Don't care much for red wing since they moved so much production overseas.


    I thought doc Martins were lifetime warranty?

    It's coming up on our heavy rain/monsoon season down here.


    I dunno, I have the box around here somewhere. I'll have to take a look.

    Next time try Gorilla Glue (follow directions to a tee). I swear that :censored2: will glue anything to anything

    Don't like RedWings. Way too heavy. They feel like you are wearing CinderBlocks on your feet. I regret buying them. They were a fortune. Nike ACG the only way to go for boots. Best I've ever owned. They feel great. I only break out the RedWings on days it's supposed to rain. The ACG's are not waterproof. The RedWings are. Feet never get wet.

    I used that, and I have this CR4000 stuff, too. Both sucked. Cleaned up the surface real well with non-residue cleaner and everything. Let them sit over night to cure.

    Aren't you glad you posted about your new Red Wings now---so everybody can run them down. This is a though crowd to deal with.

    Yep. I have an old pair of Nike golf shoes I save for wet days. Two years ago, the soles started to separate. Gorilla Glue saved the day.

    Ugly, but they work for me.

    I had some Red Wings a long time ago. Expensive and a little heavy but very well made. I don't know what their quality is like now.

    The secret to Gorilla glue is to make sure both surfaces are damp and make sure pressure is applied overnight. They more pressure the better
