In other words, I don't think they're above running deals time to time, but no discounts offered.

 

Thanks Goose

How would you compare the Oak Street Trench Boot
to the Alden Indy boot?
post #2223 of 3022
I find the Trench slightly longer and a wider toe box

When I was researching the trench boots I found little amount of pictures of the peanut suedes on feet. I'm putting these up with the hopes it can help someone on the fence. (Make that leap!)

Those look great!!! Look almost snuff-like

Some of those pics almost look like the roughout trenches.

That's what I was thinking!

Thanks gents.

I haven't seen a new pair of rough-outs in person but these peanut suedes definitely have a tan/orange hue to them.

I wore these tonight for a mile walk in the freezing cold on the mean streets of New Yawk and they were super comfy and warm.

Odd request:

 

I'm looking at picking up a pair of beefroll penny loafers, and I'm torn between Rancourt and Oak Street.  I've been planning on getting the OSB variety, purely because I love my OSB Trail Oxfords, but as someone living in Maine, I'd love to own a pair of the Rancourts.  I went into Portland Dry Goods today to try the Rancourts on, and they had a beautiful makeup with dark olive CXL (almost imperceivably green, but truly stunning) and lactae hevea crepe soles (with a heel) that I immediately fell in love with.  Unfortunately, when I tried them on, the beefrolls and moc stitching seemed awfully narrow to me...and while I know they shouldn't be big/clunky shoes, I think I want the stitching/beefrolls to be a tad bit wider.  The fit itself would be fine (once stretching occurs), but that stretching would likely have minimal effect on the width of the beefrolls and moc stretching, so I fear they won't suit my aesthetic.

 

So, I'm hoping somebody out there might have a pair of beefrolls by both companies that would be willing to measure the width between the beefrolls to tell me how different the two designs are, if at all.

 

Thanks in advance.  (I also posted this in the Rancourt thread...hope I'm not breaking forum rules/etiquette by doing so.  If I did, let me know and I'll delete this post.)

My experience as well, although my basis for comparison is a 9D trench vs. a 8.5D pair of 403s. I have toe room in both, which I kind of like. Noticeable difference aside from design would be a thicker leather on the Trench boot. Now that I've held my new ones and seen them in person, I can't for the life of me justify the price of a Viberg service boot made from the exact same materials.

While the price point is similar, I think you get more bang for the buck out of a Trench boot, especially with a Dainite sole. The design of the Indy is a classic as well though so it depends on what kind of boots you already own and what you're looking for.

So have you actually seen a Viberg boot in person or are you basing this on the  fact that they use the same type of leather (Horween).

I have not. Same leather, constuction, and sole. For 710, the asking price on a brown CXL boot, I could buy a boot made of shell.

Their last is unique and looks great in photos though.

The Trench is a solid boot, Vibergs are another level. You cant compare them based on leather and sole. On my Vibergs there is a clear difference in the quality of the welt, quality of the CXL, stitching, counter, whatever... its all another level. Not to mention Viberg uses a stitch-down welt which is way stronger then goodyear, so different construction.

Guys, I have a problem and need your advice! 

 

I picked up a pair of trail oxfords this past fall and immediately loved them. Breaking them in was an experience, but after wearing them for a few weeks, things were smooth; however, after wearing them for a few hours, I would experience pain in my right foot. Upon further inspection, I noticed the upper on the right shoe was skewed relative to the sole. The shoe's heel is shifted to the left while the toe box area points outwards. My foot sits above the stitching, which is what I believe is causing the pain. My heel is constantly rubbing against the left side of the shoe. Basically, I feel pain on the inside of the front of my right foot while my heel feels like it is hanging off the side of the sole. It looks like my foot is always pointing outward hahahaha.

 

Has anyone experienced anything like this? I emailed OSB today. Hopefully I can get the shoe restitched to the sole? I have no idea if that's even possible. I'm just trying to be optimistic. I love theses shoes! :confused:
