Thursday Boots Captain Stormking Review

These are the Thursday Boots Captain Stormking in Tobacco. Being a tall man with a foot size of 14 US, I am always wary of ordering any shoe online. However, I followed Thursday Boots’ sizing guide and am very happy with this size 13.5 Captain Stormkings.

I am wearing the Tobacco color of these boots and size 13.5, whereas I would wear a size 14. Due to how Thursday Boots makes these, the sizing has been tweaked.

I am happy with the fit of these Captain Stormking boots; my toe is close to the end but not touching it, and it doesn’t slide forward when I walk downhill. And all my toes feel snug and compact in the toe box, not giving me too much wiggle room.

Besides the fit, the look of the boot is exactly what I was looking for. The lines and stitching of the Captain Stormking have a classic yet rugged look, which makes me comfortable wearing them in the wilderness.

Yet, as you can see at the bottom of the review, they are effortless to dress up and style around.

My dimensions are:

Height: 6’7 / 201cm
Weight: 220lbs / 100kg
Boot size I am wearing: Standard 13.5 US / 48 EU
Largest size Thursday Boots makes the Stormking: 16 US / 50.5 EU

How much height do Thursday Boots Captain Stormking add?

The Stormking boots have a 1.6 inch heel at its thickest point, right at the back of the heel. For example, adding 1.6 inches to my 6’7 height will make me just over 6’8.5, which will make me be aware of walking under doors. I will need to duck so I don’t hit my forehead.

Thursday Boots Captain Stormking Tall Men Styling Tips

These Captian Stormking boots from Thursday boots work with everything. Plain tall tee, sweater, flannel (of course!) or any jacket option you have in your closet. 

There really is no wrong way to go about this. If I can give you any advice, start with the jeans. A tighter fit that hugs the leather and laces can be your go-to look, but don’t be shy to test out some more relaxed jeans with maybe a cuff on the bottom.
