Figuring out what is what with a highly customizable product can be overwhelming sometimes! Nicks buying guide is here to make deciding on what boots to order a bit more simple. Check out our help center for more information.
If there is a style or configuration that you are looking for that we do not currently offer on our website feel free to fill out this questionnaire and let us know what you would like to see from us!
We have four different categories to start from, based on lead time and level of customization.
We offer more leather options than most boot companies out there, coming from three different U.S.A. tanneries each with at least three different leather types. Check out the different options below. Some leathers are only available in limited quantities and will not be shown below.
The last is what gives a boot its overall shape and size. For Nicks it also determines the level of arch support in the boot. We offer three different lasts, with two different arch profiles.
The 11067 and 55 lasts both have our "classic arch" which has a oaktanned leather arch piece. The HNW last is our moderate arch.
Due to the shape of the HNW last, it is only available with our moderate heel height.
3. Boot Height
Deciding on how tall you want your boot is typically just a matter of personal preference or requirements based on profession. We offer a number of different boot models with varying boot heights, however if you do not see a silhouette in the height you are looking for, you will likely find it configurable in the custom configuration section.
Our heritage boots range from 3" up to 10" and our work boots are offered from 6" all the way up to 16" in some cases. Anything taller than a 10" boot will come with an extra cost and in some cases require leg measurements from you.
Each boot model has a flagship outsole associated with it, and many times is the differentiating factor between boot models. Travelers always get wedge soles, Builderpros always get lug soles, Rangers get none lugged, heeled soles. If you like everything about a boot other than its sole, there is likely an identical boot model that comes with the sole you want.
