Most reviews on such sites like Amazon and Zappos are composed by people who have really no idea about quality levels in clothing.

Yeah, not a fan of the Nasons. There are better ways of spending $200+

And don't forget that Zappos has free return shipping! Don't be afraid to use it.

i don't love the nason's either but would really like to get a pair of boots to wear with denim, you have any suggestions in that price range? i'd love to get the alden af60's but those are $515.

Forgive me for always suggesting the same boot, but I am a fan of Blundstone 500/501s. They are rugged, understated and comfortable. A good sound buy for the money.

Those boots were $208. For $245 you can get a custom made pair of Russells. Made to fit your foot. Handsewn. Built to last a lifetime. You have to be cool with a moc-toe boot because that's all they make, but if it's a style you like I don't think you can possibly go wrong. http://www.russellmoccasin.com/boots..._uplander.html A disclaimer that I own a pair and am incredibly happy with them. I am very biased.

i appreciate the suggestions, but i don't think either would work well with a pair of rag & bone jeans. i like those varvatos lace up ankle boots posted earlier but they're $300 and of questionable quality. anyone know of any true shoe manufacturer's that make something like that? i'd have no problem paying $250-300 for a good pair of lace up boots if they're made well.

Do you mean you're looking for something dressier/sleeker? The varvatos boots are probably high quality--they may not be the most durable boots, compared to workwear, but they're likely very nice.

EDIT: I dunno what codes might be floating around, but people tend to be happy with tyrwhitt shoes at sale prices, like these chukkas. Way different style than most of the boots mentioned, btu still nice. If I were a size 9.5, I would've bought these mantellassi's months ago. He's got some others, too, though the prices vary. STP has some AE chukkas in black that will last, though the styling is, again, conservative. They also have some mantellassis. There's my luchbreak online, SF-approved shopping rundown.

yeah, something sleeker i can wear out to bars but not too dressy that i can't wear them everyday. i might go try on the varvatos boot if they have it at neiman marcus on michigan. but i'm not sure how i'll pay since i only have a visa card :-

Anyway, I just bought these Mark Nassons, mainly because for the look. http://www.zappos.com/n/p/p/7145952/c/25313.html I wish these came in a more caramel/golden color since that shade really goes well with my slim kims. From what I'm reading, Mark Nasons gotten mixed review from you guys. I did read up on the reviews on Zappos and almost everyone seems to like the quality so I guess I'll have to see for myself when I get them next week.
Ugh. Those look like they were designed by Kenneth Cole after an evening with the crack pipe.

Those look decent, I don't like the double loops though.

I wouldn't say Varvatos boots are of questionable quality, the few I own have been perfectly fine during the two years that I've owned them. I believe a number of other people on here have them and I haven't heard any complaints.

There seems to be a number of Varvatos boots and shoes on ebay for decent prices at the moment.
post #60 of 66
didn't see any varvatos on ebay in my size, can anyone speak to the quality of hugo boss shoes and boots?

http://cgi.ebay.com/380-Hugo-Boss-Av...QQcmdZViewItem

also saw these on sale for $70 i think, are they even worth that much?
