The Brooks Brothers football leather chukka arrived today from the seconds sale. No deal breakers in terms of flaws I can see, and they fit fine, so they are keepers. I didn't know that these are unlined, but that's not a problem for me. Still not sure how they came up with an MSRP of $498, as there isn't anything I can see that warrant the higher than normal price. Kind of makes me wonder how many pairs BB is selling even with their normal 15~25% discounts. At $125 though, I think they are very nice, as I really like shoes made with the football leather.
I really like the shape of those. What were the names of these on the seconds list? I'm wondering if I missed them because I didn't recognize the model name
