Fine boots

Just received the boots and wanted to add/update a few details. They are made of Calico Peanut Suede not CXL. The sole is Dainite. The color is much lighter than in the picture, but still very distinctive and attractive. They fit true to size. Behind the hook fastenings are eyelets that the laces can be thread through should you not wish to re-hook every time. They are very comfortable and the grip of the sole is good. They fit tight at the heel and looser at the toe-box. Thick socks aren't a necessity for a snug fit. The smooth side of the leather is on the inside and should breath and stretch out nicely. Waterproof them with a suede conditioner as the lightness of the suede is bound to attract stains. A shoe horn might also be a good investment.


First, the boots. If you’re a fan of OSB, you know these are quality boots. The fit and finish are excellent. The fit of this boot’s last is superb, IMO. You’re going to immediately love these once you put them on. If you’re not a fan of OSB yet, don’t let the price put you off. These are made-in-USA boots that are going to get better with age, and last you for years and years and years. Secondly, Bonobos service: Top notch! I had to make a shipping change after the order was placed and they took care of it no problem. These were at my door 20 hours after ordering them! Friendly service from start to finish, even in their web-chats. Thanks Bonobos! Please carry more OSB in the future.

Roughouts for Summer

The boots are very well made and have a much more normal last than the Red Wings that I own. In contrast with the RWs, Oakstreet provides a normal generous D width while the heel of the boot is more close fitting for a nice hold without the dreaded heel slip problem of other footwear. They do fit true to size and no more, I had to "stretch" the roof of the toe box on my boots, because the leather lining plus the sleekness of the shape was overly tight for me. The color of the boots in real life is more of a burnt, brown, tan color and the leather is both thick and soft.
