What brand of field boots are these?
 
I purchased these field boots on consignment years ago, and I really love them. I would like to get another pair with a wider calf (because I'm not getting any smaller as I get older ><), but I have no idea what brand they are! There is no name on them anywhere! The only unique marking is a logo stamped in the tread. Here are some photos:

Does anyone recognize them?

Boots look to be in decent shape...if they are just snug...

Have you thought about getting them stretched?
Once stretched you need though to wear them periodically and you should be using boot trees with the foot piece so you don't have the curled up toe or falling over happening.

Could they be a Marlboro pair?
I'm not sure they did them with the "Spanish" cut top and tabs though...:think:
I've seen that mark also...the foot tread though has me stumped for a manufacturer. I'm used to seeing older boots with a "flat" sole not rubber looking and grippies on it...

Fully lined or just a cuff lining might help someone with identifying them easier..

Yeah, they are just snug. Otherwise, they look like new. I've had these boots since I was 14 or 15 years old. I'm now 25. They were in like new condition when I bought them, so I don't know exactly how old they are. I don't think they're ancient. My foot hasn't grown but my calf has. I remember that they were sized as a "narrow" and I am definitely not narrow anymore. I did have them stretched once. It helped, but not enough. The boots are fully lined. They are very, very nice quality, hence why I love them so much! Though I will admit I haven't taken the best care of them. Thank you for the tips!

Take them to a cobbler {shoe maker} who can restretch them for you.
Also inquire about putting either a elastic gusset and or a zipper in them for ease of putting them on and off.

Look at some pictures of the "trend" of boots today. Most have both of these items it seems or at least one as standard.

I have fully lined boots and love them now that they are broke in. I have as much "feel" in mine as most do in a unlined boot...think it has to do with the animal hide used for that lining but not sure.
My boots are customs and when not on my legs they live in leg & foot trees...I could never afford to replace them with what that expense is today.
You could also look for a boot slip-on product to help you slide in...spray it on your leg not the boot... use real boot slip on though not WD-40 or something like that.... you want to not damage the leather.
I think it is called Properts Boot Slip-on....comes in a spray can with a almost comical picture of horse and rider...
Just make sure you have someone around to help pull them off and wear knee-hi's for that extra slippery help.

Good luck.

Thanks so much for all the tips! I actually have no trouble getting them on and off, but my feet go numb shortly after I put them on! It's an odd sensation, but it does go away after I walk around or ride in them for an hour or so. That is a good idea to get someone to put a zipper or elastic on them, though I would be so afraid of not liking the final result. I love these boots so, so much. Maybe I will get them stretched again and try to wear them more often.

Devonaire Filed Boots?
 
I think these may be Devonaire boots. I found a pair on consignment at a local tack shop and they were labeled, by the tack store, as Devonaire. Does anyone have a pair of Devonaire boots that can confirm this?

They are definitely Devon Aire. I pulled a new pair of Devon Aire field boots out of their box at a tack shop over the weekend and they look just like mine. Case closed! :D
