You know, if I can't get a chukka with Dainite soles, I could go for a chelsea boot instead. I'm not a big fan of jodhpur boots because I find wrapping and buckling the straps a PITA.My primary need right now is 2 pairs of boots, one casual and one dressy, to wear in rain and slush, but I'm also looking for dressy brown chelsea boots.
With Dainite sole? If so, I'm most likely in (depending on the last).
Nice article. Thanks for posting.
My preference would be the 3-eyelet chukka, like the Ashbery.
I'd go for hatch grain, scotch grain, snuff suede, ruby shell cordovan, navy shell cordovan...almost any chukka boot with a Dainite sole other than dark brown shell cordovan or chestnut calfskin (because I already own these). I really like the Ashbery boot you linked
Sure enough! I need to learn to read.
I'm late to the party, but I'd be interested in a hatch grain chukka. I'm much more partial to chukkas than all the high boots everyone here seems so fond of. I only wear my high boots in heavy snow, so they rarely get much use.
At the risk of stating the obvious, the last picture is Edward Green, from the color of the bags and the writing on the sole. I own a pair of brown suede jodhpur boots very much like those you posted, made by John Lobb. I find that I rarely wear them because buckling them up is a PITA.
Robert, will the Darwin model shoes ever go on sale? I have a pair that I bought on ebay, I love them, and I'd liike another pair, but can't justify paying full retail.
I don't have a lot of information, but their attraction for me was largely the service provided by Ron Rider and his ability to provide unique styles in shell cordovan. I special-ordered several pairs of shell cordovan shoes from Ron and he was exceptionally accommodating in helping me to find the right size, sending me multiple sizes of try-on shoes, on each of several lasts, before I ordered. My shell cordovan monkstraps in Horween color #6 remain one of my favorite...
