Do you guys wear the same size in both the beefroll loafers and the trail oxford, or do you wear a 1/2 size larger in the oxford?

That is most definitely true. Half-size down from trail oxford size for beefroll. I actually just sized someone who came into Independence the other day - he was wearing trail oxfords, and went half down for the beefrolls that he bought.

let me know if I can help more!

thanks guys,

That was a small batch we did exclusively for the pop-up flea a couple of years ago. We've always introduced a small batch of something new, unique, and exciting for the pop-up flea - this year will be no exception!

So, do any of the natural shoes end up with a finish similar to these caminas?  Or is finding some real dark natural with the grain like that just luck of the draw?

Will Dunderdon SoHo in NYC have the natural beefroll loafers?

any body to a comparison fit between the camp boot vibram and the oxford.... the 12 was awesome even barefoot in the oxford... one of my favs... but i recieved hte camp boot in 12 and the width upfront way tight for two second it felt like, and after wearing them for three hours areounf the house the heal felt loose. I was wearing normal cotton sock...I also have the maine guide boot from yuketen 12e which i had to put another insole in ontop of the leather, and I put the same insole in the camp vibram and my foot fit but it was tight. So I just ordered a 11.5 and the lad at lands end said that was good because they were almost gone... So either way we will see what happen. FYI i might sell which ever one i don't keep at a discount price if anyone would be interested. never worn out side or longer than four hours..

question on water-resistance of Oak Street Boots. I am looking at the camp boots but I wonder which model is the most adequate for extreme rainy weather. I find that none of my Quoddys are up to the task, even when waxing the seams. Water gets in everywhere, at the seams, between the sole and the shoe, not fun when you live in rainy UK-like climates musicboohoo[1].gif Thanks!

Definitely go with the Hunt Boot. They have an additional piece of leather coating the seams that will ensure water resistance.

TJ at Independence has a pair of naturals that he's been wearing pretty hard and they have darkened quite a bit - in many ways - similar to that photo.

For reference - they are made on the same last. some people who go barefoot in the trail oxfords but want to wear a thicker sock in the camp boots like to go up a half size. I personally wear the same size in both because as you know, chromexcel will stretch to conform to your foot. 12 should be right for ya, but it all comes down to personal preference and how it feels on your feet.

jhoo04 has got it right. For the hunt boot, i specifically designed a 'roll' moc - the plug leather literally rolls over the moc toe, to prevent seeping. We also dip our thread in beeswax to further help with water resistance - . Hope that helps ya make your decision! =)

Do you know when day they will get the natural beefroll loafers and until when?

post #447 of 3017
Can we get some pics from TJ?
post #448 of 3017

Hey Guys,

 

This is TJ from the Independence Shop. I have been wearing the Natural Trail Oxfords pretty heavily for about 5 months now and they have darkened up quite a bit. I am working today, but can post some photos of what they are looking like after wear as soon as I get home tonight.
