“ Review of Vans x Barbour Beacon waxed nylon and leather classic slip-on shoes. Bought these about 3 months ago from Barneys New York (though I see them for much less on eBay now), and have worn them with and without socks nearly every day since then. Wore them on a 900-mile round trip drive to and from Florida, which is rough on the right heel of any shoe, and these show...” --TheNeedMachine
“ Human Scales – Denny Suede Brown – double monk strap shoes The double monk strap shoe might be the dressiest of all men’s shoes. They are more “advanced” and are not for the sartorial faint of heart. Get it right, though, and you will turn twice the heads. Human Scales have made a plain toe, double buckle monk style shoe with highly attractive and exquisite lines. They used...” --Mrvaerk
“The Quoddy True Penny Loafer fits true to size. For reference, I wear a 7D in Alden's Barrie last. After breaking in these loafers, I added a tongue pad to tighten up the vamp (size large from Amazon). I don't think I could have sized down to a 6.5D since my toes would touch the end of the loafer and a wider shoe would definitely mean walking out of the loafer. The width...” --ppith
“These boots, made for J. Crew and listed as Red Wing 4183, are a fine example of a job well done. They break in easily and then fit like a glove. The leather ages beautifully and applying a bit of shoe wax improves appearance and durability of the surface. With proper care and attention as well as resoling when necessary, these boots should last for years to come.” --_cameosis_
“STYLE Loake Strand is a semi brogue Adelaide. Adelaide brogues are a variant of oxfords with broguing in a "U" shape around the laces and it does not intersect any other seams on the vamp, also called an "U Throat" oxford. Normally, an oxford shoe has two separate pieces of leather for the vamp and the quarter that are sewed together. An Adelaide brogue has just one piece of leather for the...” --wurger
The Galway is a most classic English Country Boot, yet quite urbane by today’s standards. Combining a shaft of supple Walnut Country Calf and the forefoot of smooth Dark Oak calfskin with Dainite soles and a smart tapered round toe, these shoes glide easily between dress and casual occasions. Wear them with a suit when the morning weather is sub-par or on a snowy Saturday stroll.
“I kind of wish they came in standard leather sole with English heal. Fun while they lasted. That said if I found a pair on sale for no more than half the price, I would buy them again. Taupe color is the best. ” --yucaseca
“The Timberland Men's Heritage 3-eye Classic Lug Boat Shoes 30003 is what I purchased and have been wearing them as my everyday shoes. It is a dark brown leather shoe with a honey rubber sole. I wear them all year round. The shoes are very comfortable and get softer the more you wear them. The thick leather gets very soft after about six months of continuous wear and combined with...” --Basil Ecurie
“i wear these everyday on my canteen route in the winter and am on my 3rd year with them. may need a resole next year, i keep mink oil on em and the leather is like butter.lined with thinsulate and nice fit. ” --seanhorween
