They were a replacement for a favorite pair of Havana Joe chukkas that I had for a decade. The main sticking point is the bulky toe box. Otherwise they're decent beater boots - a small step up in...
Not much of a difference, considering the taupe looks like a beeswax that's been worn a dozen or so times. Beeswax does not keep its dark color long.

I'm planning to carry my macbook, a textbook, and a folder with some papers so it's not going to be too heavy. Any input? thanks Get the...
This thread reminds me of the time I was traipsing through the Kalahari when I came upon this village of poorly-dressed natives. Rudimentary stitching on loin cloth. Hideously-sized ostrich hides. Accessories (digging sticks, etc) that couldn't find a match in a Jil Sander warehouse!
My problem is with the welt especially the first pic where there looks to be some sort of gouge - the stitching on my 403s is smooth all around. The second pic looks like a small piece of leather coming up from the welt. Can't find that on mine. The third seems like normal wear after a few days, but not out of the box.

Like you said the turn over rate is extremely high, but they are also extremely efficient at restocking them, I guess you just have to frequent the store enough to catch the "it" items but it's really still not much of a hype.
