post #13921 of 16297

Can someone recommend boots similar in style to the Carpe Diem's in this classified http://www.styleforum.net/t/347599/08-carpe-diem-others and made with high quality leather and construction? Blake/rapid construction is ideal; I don't need hand welted. Goodyear construction is okay, but proper goodyear is difficult to come by, what with most "goodyear" labeled shoes having gemming and similar low-quality techniques/materials employed. I'm looking for a leather sole similar in quality to leathers such as a J & FJ Baker oak bark sole or a Rendenbach valona sole.

 

I do not have a set budget, but I'm not looking for full bespoke either. Thank you for your time.

Winter's coming, and its time to get a decent winter boot - anyone have any suggestions for something that can do double duty with streetwear and a suit (sometimes)? Was thinking the Red Wing 875 but those are apparently atrocious on snow and ice.

A 44 should work or 43, Grenson is slightly wider than CP and long. If you are looking for a black brogue I would not recommend Grenson though lot's of better options

Thanks for the response stevent. If I remember correctly, you purchased some Grensons a while back but returned them because of poor finishing. Could you elaborate? I really like the look of this particular shoe. What would you recommend? Tricker's? AE?

Last Grensons I bought were from Park and Bond maybe 2 years ago? It's essentially a made in India shoe using lower quality leather. Tricker's make a solid chunky brogue, AE might have one but I'm not sure. Depends on budget though and Grensons are usually on sale at least 50-70% so nothing would really be cheaper

These are the Sid model. They are listed as "Handmade in England." I just need something casual to beat up at work. Thanks for your help stevent.

A lot of them are just finished in London, depends on how you view it, it's probably a good work beater

it looks nice in the online site photos but it might look more plasticky in real life. this is what happened with me and the common projects derby shine oxfords looked nice in photos in black. bought them looked almost like a fake leather in person. returned asap stick to cordovan for the shiniest of the shines....

Any recommendations for a black boot in size 13/46?  Something like Dayton Service's if possible.  Want a more rugged looking boot in black.  I know there's a lot of people looking for similar alternatives to them, so wanted to see what people have found.

What are some good options for some fingerless gloves that will actually last me a couple of winters.  My current one's I picked up are fraying and falling apart after one winter.
