US or EU Made Suede Chukkas for about $200 - do they exist?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest well made, and made in the US or Europe, suede chukkas, ideally with a reasonably grippy outsole (for cool and wet weather), brown or tan colors, and a nice, clean look to them - for around $200.  Do they exist? 

 

Cheers!

Allen Edmonds Malvern through the discount channels (eBay etc)
Sanders
Brooks Brothers on sale

BTW, we have a member here, oneeightyseven. I'd watch my back.

I do recall looking at the Malvern - but was put off by the bad reviews about squeaking, poor construction and a toe-crushing fit.  I'll look out for the other brands you mentioned, though! 

 

BTW - if anyone here has experience with the Malvern, please do post it up.

Meermin has suede chukkas that are right around $200 shipped to the US. Do a search and you'll find loads of info on them on SF.

 I shall - I wasn't familiar with that brand.  Thanks!

These (they're Loake Pimlicos) can often be had for $200 or less when on sale.

Watching this thread as I'm considering getting a pair also. Are Florsheim and Cole Haan any good?



Side note, not too interested into running into oneeightyseven!

If you can wait for the after-Christmas sale, Brooks Brothers has one or two models that might work for you. I can't guarantee that the sale price would come in under $200, but IIRC they were under $250 last year. I almost pulled the trigger.

Edit: Here they are:

$248 right now, crepe sole, and made in the UK.
