All very informative. No thoughts on Nick's Mckay stitching? I always associated McKay as a slightly inferior method of construction, used on a lot of mid-level Italian shoes like Gravati, lower-end A. Testoni, Mezlan. I'm surprised to find it used on sturdy American work boots. Perhaps not all McKay is equal - Nick's seems to drive home the point that their McKay involves multiple levels of stitching.
