I'm interested in investing into a good pair o' Chukkas but I'd appreciate some feedback and opinions:
I'm looking for a pair of Chukkas to wear "out". I'm not looking for anything with flash, just something straight forward.
The Red Wing 9017 is visually appealing to me but I haven't any experience with higher quality boots or shoes for that matter. I don't plan on spending over $500 for a pair at this point, but for a first pair I'd like to have some incite as to what you get for $250 as compared to $500+.
The bottom line is durability/longevity. Is Red Wing a company people associate those with? I know I've set a price limit, but I'm very interested in some feedback from first hand experience at any price point.
