Today we'll take a close look at Nick's Handmade Boots. I've always struggled with poor fitting boots and foot pain and I hoped to finally get a great great fit and a bomb-proof boot that will last for years.

Been wearing Nick's since 2005. I bought two pairs in about a year. I still wear those two pairs most of the time. They've both been resoled once or twice and could use an overhaul. They're still my front line work boots. I have a newer pair that hardly gets worn--save them for when I need "nicer boots" or a thicker sole. I highly recommend the Honey Vibram sole if you're on hard surfaces a lot. I won't have them with anything else anymore. Takes months to break them in and also--if you've just got one pair and work long hours, you'll need a boot dryer. Otherwise the stitching can rot out--as it did on a friend of mine who works super long hours and wearing only one pair. Alternating pairs works too. Leather needs time or help dissipating our perspiration. Also wool socks are mandatory for good work boot performance, comfort, and freedom from odors. I never have any sort of foot odor when wearing wool socks in leather. The same feet can get stinky fast in cotton socks in any sort of footwear. Wool is simply too important to overlook if you need a solid foundation with best comfort.

@James Gatz Yes I'm glad you are happy. I get many resoles from my Nicks and I'll stick to them because I know what sort of abuse they can take first hand. The break-in is part of the price of admission. Thanks all the same.

@Wade Patton I digress Mine have been amazing with wear every single day. Good boots don’t need to be a battle to break in. And there are plenty of people wearing JK’s that can say the same with theirs lasting just as long as any other boot.

@James Gatz Nicks take a while. I was considering JK's for a bit, but there's just no way they'll hold up like Nicks with such a super fast break in and they're practically the same money. With all the options I selected my next pair is 635, plus 30 for the accessories package. Thanks for your input.

months to break in? i dont think it should take months. My Jk's were feeling amazing in less than a week.

I sold boots 8 years at a western store. And I also helped folks with ordering their handmade boots and walked them through the process and have designed three pairs of my own! I absolutely love this boot review!! It is so Genuine and accurate. An all leather boot will give you the best custom fit because it will conform to your feet. And I have been so passionate about fitting people and have them so glad, surprised, relieved to actually have a boot that fits them! Attention to detail matters and the most important part of a boot are the hands that built them.

I always appreciate your honest reviews Dave. I’m with you, the older I get, the more important it is to take care of our feet. I would be interested to hear your opinion and impressions after a year or so of regular wear. My current favorite pair of boots were made by Wesco (family owned and operated in Scappoose, OR). I have been wanting to try a pair of Nick’s.

I was always told by a physician there’s two things you never go cheap on. A mattress because your on it 8 hours a day and good comfortable rest is vital for your health and good quality comfortable, supportive shoes because you’re feet need to last a lifetime so you better take care of them to help you remain mobile and pain free.

These type of boots can weaken your feet. I started wearing whites boots a year ago and I now have an over-pronated right foot. The arch support and stiff leather around the ankle weaken your foot and ankle muscles.

Ironically the cheapest mattress I ever bought was about $280 and it's the best mattress I've ever slept on. It's been perfect for about 5 years so far and it's already beaten how long the $1000 mattress I had before it lasted before I felt less comfortable. When it gets worn out I'm buying another one for sure. I have a $150 pair of Doc Martins I've been wearing nearly 5 days a week for over 15 years. Best shoes I've ever owned.

I never thought I would be so in love with a boot review but you covered all bases. I am so glad you went ahead and did this review because my husband is Indian from India and his feet are very very narrow and small and we could never find a boot or a shoe to fit him properly even $200 shoes we have spent only for them to be destroyed within a month. I am definitely going to reach out to Nick's I am so willing to spend $500 if it means my husband will have a comfortable shoe that will not be destroyed in a month.

Nice video! I bought my first pair of pretty decent boots, I got the Whites Perry moctoe boot. I have had them for a few months and I have had the same experience with the leather forming to my foot. They felt too small at first, but now they fit my foot perfectly. Gotta love a real pair of boots!!

Thanks for the video! I’m a welder by trade and I am currently waiting for my try on boots. All these TRpost videos help to ease the pain of waiting for my custom boots 😁. In my opinion the $500-600 price tag is a steal for the level of craftsmanship that goes in to these boots

Great video! I’m a very tough customer when it comes to poor materials and poor quality. I have two pairs of Nick’s boots. One pair for everything to the zombie apocalypse to just cutting some firewood. And another for dress boots for work. The thing that I feared most was the “break-in” that so many said was painful. Thankfully for me I didn’t experience anything near being painful. Nick’s boots are the best made highest quality materials in any boot at any price I have owned. And remember if you wear the sole out then send the boots back to Nick’s and they will refurbish, so the price actually does justify cost of ownership. Thanks again for the video!!!

Hey Dave, thanks for the video pertaining to Nick's boots. Just a FYI. Take a look at J.K. Boots, also out of Spokane. I went with them because they did a CUSTOM FIT from the very beginning of the process. I have lymphedema in my lower legs and makes for a very swollen instep, which is a permanent issue. Not a temporary one. As with Nick's Boots, the leather is very heavy and the boot is well constructed. You start out with a phone call to the actual boot cobbler. Then you trace out your foot outline AND take numerous measurements around various parts of your foot and lower leg. You have all the options to choose from, same as Nick's. They made my boots with a custom instep, lace to toe, and modified tongue so that I could actually get my foot into the boot. It takes about six weeks to have the boots made and delivered. My boots cost me $630, and as you said, WAS WORTH EVERY CENT!!!!!! And I am not afraid to admit that I actually cried like a baby when I put these boots on because it was the first time in over TWENTY YEARS that I was able to wear a boot that FIT! Prior to this pair I was wearing boots that were several sizes too big and still difficult to put on. And I spent those twenty years in the outdoors doing utility work. So......not trying to take away from Nick's Boots, but to quantify what you are saying in that spending $500 to $600 on a HANDMADE BOOT is worth it! No matter WHO makes the boots!!!

I owned several sets of Ariat cowboy boots, I think I have worn through 4 sets of the Ariats total, and the worst I've ever had to break in was a set of black pointed toe boots that just felt like a vise on my feet for about 3 days. Then they were fantastic! I can tell Nicks does good stuff as their leatherwork does have that "tack" look you want from high quality leather gear. Nice stuff.

Glad to see you invested! Breaking in my second set of hnw lasted Alaskan smokejumpers so that I can send the first set in for resole. Make up a spray bottle of 50:50 rubbing alcohol and water and spray the tight spots. My 2000 White’s boots are still going. The red star soles that are fire resistant do not do well on rock. They can chunk out. Better to go with the original Vibram sole. Great review. You did your audience and nicks right.

That is a quality looking boot, may have to try those. I've worn Carolina loggers for 20 years now. They're good on concrete, comfortable with a pair of gel or foam insoles and last a very long time. Same upper, same heel and shank. Great climbing boot and if anyone can't afford the Nick's, Carolina loggers are damn close! Not certain of any others as I've stuck with the loggers but the boots you disassembled are shameful, not gonna ask where they're made. The Carolinas are made here in an old factory in PA, I was in the factory a while back and it's quite impressive with the old barn type beams. Just a heads up for someone who can't get those and want something close. Love the videos!

Nice boots, may have to save for a pair. I work in the oil field and get a pair a year or $150 a year allowance but I can’t save that up. My last 3 pair have been red wing and I just pay the extra $100 out of my own pocket (bout $250 a pair) they have been mostly good but definitely no on the same level as Nick’s. Thanks for the info, love your content!

From my experience the generic cheapo sneaker that costs 20 bucks has always fit well and was comfortable. I got a brand name pair once and I couldn't fathom the amount of pain my knees were in. After a month I just went to the store and got some cheapos and the pain went away. Got a pair of work boots and not having any idea of what's a good boot my supervisor recommended the pair he had. After a month or so whatever cushion they had was gone and even though I wasn't walking much in them the pain was back. The boot truck came around and I got a new set and it was night and day.

congratulations on your new boots!!!! i have to say i learned this lesson way earlier than you. i got home from viet nam in 1971, i came back crazy, and had to live apart from normal folks.i spent 2 years in the bwca, i suffered with bad, cheap boots because i didn't know better and didn't have any friends to enlighten me with a better solution. when i got back into town, i found a book called "the complete walker" by colin fletcher. it changed my life regarding my feet. i haven't worn cheap ill fitting boots or shoes since. when i got work in the woods in oregon a few years later; i invested in 2 pairs of boots, the first was a pair of westco's i bought locally, when i got a few paychecks ahead i ordered my custom white brothers (also out of spokane). i found my nick's in 2017 at the filson outlet store, they are a black oil tanned leather in 9.5 d. i knew when i bought them they would last me the rest of my life, but i don't have far to go.....thanks for reading and enjoy your new boots. :)

Your comments comparing what we spend on inferior boots, even in a couple of years versus the $500 price tag for quality boots that will last sure resonates with me. I am hard on boots, hunting and hiking the Wilderness and working on timber stand improvements at my place. In the last year I have bought (and been disappointed by) Ariats, Irish Setters, Keens, and Under Armor. Could’ve bought this nice pair and had them nicely broken in by now.

Thanks for the video Dave. Glad you got some good boots, hopefully the next pair will be precisely the right long term fit. I also value your link to 'Rose Anvil'. Being an Aussie, I of course checked to see if he reviewed Redbacks, Blundstone ('Blunnies') and RM Williams boots. He did and I found those reviews helpful (He seems to like Redbacks). Perhaps you can comment on the old serviceman's quick breakin trick - you soak the boots in water, put em on, and wear them until they are dry. Brutal, but effective.

Effective? Yes. Very bad for the leather? Yes. I suggest you rather use oils like Obenaufs oil. Makes the leather soft and supple while conditioning it..

Great review! Nicks are above every else out there. I’m a Red Wing Heritage guy and just got into Nicks and wow! Your explanation about the money spent in a cheaper pair of Boots vs spending it on something better at the beginning makes total sense. My Red Wing Iron Ranger were $350 + tax and i had to resole it in 2 years for $240 ($590) and the leather isn’t as thick as the Nicks and the construction is different. Those Chippewa boots are terrible.

Been wearing Whites since 1976, I've had about 4 pr of Smokejumpers, 1 pr custom packers, and 1 pr of Nicks corked loggers. The key to breaking them in is soaking them before you put them on for the day. Fill with warm water for about 5 min, tip over and drain for 1/2 hour. Put on a nice pair of quality wool boot socks and then put on the wet boots, lace up snugly. Wear them all day as you would normally. Do this for several days and your boots will form to your feet, or suffer for a few months. Periodically rinse your boots with warm water and some baking soda to kill the salt from foot sweating too. I'm still wearing a pr of Whites I bought in '96 and had rebuilt 5 yrs ago. They will last if you take care of them.

After going through the fitting process, and getting my boots, I am amazed that Nicks can provide such great service and awesome product for such a reasonable price. I now have two pair of Nicks boots 10" Builder Pro's and 6" Roberts. They are my favorite footwear of all time.

I understand where you’re coming from! I usually wear a 12D, but decided to go with a 12C because I, like you and most others, did my research about the fit and knew that they break in to about one width larger than normal. 12D was perfect right out of the box so I knew if I went with a 12C it would break in perfect and keep my foot nice and snug. Mind you I live South Florida, about an hour north of Miami so my sock of choice is the foxrivers that I wore in the army. Not much cushion from the socks but they are thicker and wick mote than your average cotton sock. I do not work in these boots so I can’t say that my boot is 100% broken in after 6 months of owning them and only wearing them on the weekend but one thing I did to help the break in process was to wear them around the house like a pair of slippers lol. However, I will be purchasing some that look exactly like yours for my job (new construction plumbing) redwings have done me well but it’s time I step up my work boots and get a forever pair that will last me a lifetime! Great review!

Nice! I have been wearing "Redwing" boots over 40 years. They used to be made in America, but the last pair "Kraft Foods" 😁 bought for me were made in China. I've been retired almost four years and will soon have to spend my own money on my next pair. It's good to know there is still an AMERICAN company I can purchase from.

@Tim Hall I live in the city and question myself getting Logger heel Thorogood boots for casual wear since they look pretty "rock and roll". I got them thinking I'd return them for a more basic heel but I love em. Redwing did leave a bad taste when I got some for work and found out that they have an import line but still charged a premium price, those broke down way too fast.

Great video Brother! My Traveler's in the Wicket & Craig burgundy just shipped today after a 20 week wait!! I am stoked to get them! I have a pair of Bison's that Carl M. was in Collab with Nick's that I have been wearing for 7 months, and I can say that the Bison leather is my all time favorite leather so far! But man that burgundy is sweet as well!! I have to have the Vibram 2021 crepe sole as a heel just kills my back to work in. How do you like the "Honey Vibram" sole? I understand it is a much softer sole? Thanks Again Brother!

I’ve been looking at these boots for a little while now. Like you’ve said in one of your other videos about priorities. I know what I need and I’m putting money away for a set of these boots. I love your honesty and appreciate your videos. Stay safe my friend, and thank you for the video.

They remind me of logger boots that were made in the northwest 40-plus years ago. White's logger boots. Great boots. The old saying was, YOU don't break them in, they break you in." Their steel shank saved my foot. I was cutting lodge pole all day. When I got home, and took off my boots, there was a 2 inch long and 1 1/2 inch deep gash in the arch of my left boot. Right down to the steel shank. I had NO earthly idea when or how my chain saw did that. But sure glad I had the right pair of boots.

New subscriber here. Great video and review. I am all about supporting a smaller business and love that they are located in a small town in WA. They are out of my price range but if that ever changes I will give them a solid look.

Really thorough treatment, Dave -- thanks! But it is perhaps a trifle inaccurate to say Chippewa boots are direct competitors of Nick's . . . the former are just fine for those who sit and ride more than they stand and walk . . . but if a pair of Nick's were treated like that, only your heirs would have any chance of breaking them in!

Great review. No doubt one heck of a nice boot. However, the days in which I can say I've had an extra $550 to spend on myself are few and far between. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, the will remain a luxury item that's just out of reach.

I felt the same way. Thats a lot of money....but I needed something that lasts and fits. Ive been nearly crippled by boots before

Thanks for pointing me back to Nick's Boots. I checked them out about a year or so back and forgot about them. Will look at what they offer now.

I had a pair of Chippiwa mountaineering boots back in the mid 1980's while in the Army, they were great. But that company has gone downhill, and aren't anything like they should be anymore. I bought a pair of Nicks Hotshot firefighting boots around 2006, they're amazingly tough

I'll say I have Chippewa loggers that I really liked. Unfortunately, I kicked through the toe until the steel toe popped out through the massive hole. And the sole wore down pretty quick. I do think Chippewas are pretty good. But honestly I just wear cowboy boots all the time anyway. Hate laces.
