Mr B's Blake boots vs Grenson Sharp/Fred - Page 16

post #226 of 237

Yeah, I really can't complain about mine, and they get a lot of compliments.

I'm a size 7 in boots regularly, am I out of luck since I'm only seeing 7.5 as the smallest size and people are saying this boot fits much larger than what it's labeled as.

FYI. Blake's seem to be on sale right now online, 30% off. Got some last night. With free shipping + tax it came to $110.
They also had the same model but in brown at around $75 - but not in my size. : (

I thought some people might be interested in this. Mr. B Montano's are on sale for $100 + free shipping or $90 + free shipping with the 10% off discount code at Aldo until Monday:

The rust colorway reminds me of the Alden Roy boots, and the suede versions look nice too. I'm not sure of the quality, but per the Mr. B website, they are welted and can be resoled. There are some icons on the right side, and if you hover your pointer over the bottom right icon, you'll see the details:

Chiming in to point out that the "Korns" brogue boot with a lugged sole is now on sale for $125, and with the 10% off coupon that you get for signing up for their email list...it comes to $113ish pre-tax, with free shipping.

 

Not sure if anyone has any experience with these, but I liked the look of them in green (but not enough to pay the premium of a nicer boot in green) so I went for it.  Fingers are crossed that they're at least a bit better than the average Aldo garbage, but if they aren't, I'll just return them.

Guys, i usually wear size 9 shoes. So for these pair of boots do you recommend that i downsize to 8 instead?

post #232 of 237
That's what I had to do. I also needed an insole to get the fit right.
And be pretty for 2 or 3 rough wears. I got a blister from the first 2 wears. I know guy who had a similar experience but then they locked,right in.

Hi guys, just received my aldo Blakes. They look gorgeous out of the box. Just a word of caution to all you guys, the sizes run ridiculously big. I usually wear a size 9 or 9.5 but in these boots I wear a size 8 and theres still plenty of room. I can even include an insole to make it fit better! Oh well it looks great so far so no return for me I guess.

Bought a pair of cognac Mr B's from Aldo and am really, really pleased with them. I'm a 44 and found the fit graet. With I had bought the burgundy version as well before ALDO stopped stocking them. I will try a pair of Malhi boots next.

 

PS - anyone know if the Ketts are still available any whare?

Picked up a pair of the Mr. B blake boots last year for 100$ trashed them all winter, polished them up in the spring and they were as good as new. Recently ive acquired a pair of alexander mcqueen military boots and red wing beckmans, Just noticed the cognac version is on for 69.99 in my size so i snagged that for this winter as to become my destruction boot. aka beat the crap out of it this winter and save my nicer boots for the fall, mild winter days, and the spring

Anyone have a quick & easy method for cleaning the white vibrams soles on the Grenson Fred?
