The B34 is a perfect casual mans man last. The normandy suffers from stupid ae finishing. Ask to see all boots in your size and pick the one that has the least sandpaper finish.

You guys are tough!  I thought the Normandy (in person) was one of the best things I've ever seen from AE.  Unfortunately, I'm in business formal or business casual 5 days a week, so I just can't justify something that will get worn only on weekends, and probably only during the Fall season.  But if you can get more usage out of these, I'd totally go for 'em.

Yeah...true but I have waited for a long time for some cool different leathers from AE and to take sandpaper to kudu...that ain't right. this is on the heels of all that beautiful horween cxl used on the 555 lasted shoes that don't fit me and the CF Stead suedes that I can't MTO....I have a lot of anger.....lol

Thank you both!

I've been looking for a chukka/boot for fall/winter. I've been eyeing the Long Branch in dark brown or the J&M Copeland in tan. When I was on shoebank, I noticed they have a snuff suede Gobi for <$100 in my size. How will these hold up in the occasional rain/snow (if I don't decide to wear something different)? Worth it for $100?

It would be mostly for casual wear with jeans. I don't see myself wearing them to work.

@BchBum11511 I just got the tan saddle (leather) version myself. Wore them in some light rain - they'll need some polish at some point but they did ok. No way id wear them in the snow though...not to mention the fact that they are also super lightweight for boots and you would be freezing.

In case anyone's interested, the RDA prices are live.  Shoebank looks like 20% less, excluding the clearance stuff (meaning shoebank is more than retail in some cases.)

Long Branch is a great winter boot, my Gobi would not go out to play int he snow if I could help it.

Neo, appreciate the feedback.  I'm in the south, so it doesn't get truly freezing (not to mention I don't get cold easily) too often.  I was thinking these are a step up from the Clarks desert boot.  Would you agree?

Kahuna, that's my dilemma.  I'm wanting both!  I'm trying to determine if I should get one now over the other.  Especially now that the Long Branch is $279.

You know normally I'm not a fan of black shoes but those CORNWALLIS are pretty nice looking.

Those normmandy boots are freaking terrible

So the sale prices are on the site... they swapped the Oxblood Dalton with Danite sole version for a Walnut (which i already own, minus the Danite)!

 

I wonder what else changed around. Stopping in the local store tomorrow, may have to go V-Tread.

Well if you really not going to get hardly any snow at all then the Gobi is a great pickup - I have the snuff suede and think it is great - Or grab a second Long Branch for $219 and the Gobi and  you are all set!
