Coming from a guy that doesn't like plain toe shoes...I really like those Olive PTBs.

Chukkas look great.  Given the slightly darker shade and dainite soles, wouldn't they be appropriate for Fall wear?  I have the Alden snuff suede flex welts which are great for Spring/Summer, but their use pretty much ends there.  I am looking for a chukka that can be worn in Fall/Winter.

I'd rock those year round without a doubt.

I am seriously considering them. I just don't have any experience with the Detroit last

I hear it is Barrie-ish. I believe not quite as much volume, though.

I orderd my first pair Carmina (Simpson last) last week and they arrived yesterday. The shoes fit very well and they look great. Thanks for the fast shipping!

I think you are right.  Now I just need to get them added to my string loafer shipment to avoid double shipping.  Hopefully not too late.

The peeps at Skoak will have better info, but I know it is a wider fitting last - more in a group with Rain and Soller - opposite end of the spectrum from the slender Simpson.  I tried on a pair once, but it was long enough ago that I can't give any fit specifics other than generally a wider fitting last.

 

@Braddock - very sharp!

Thanks. Damnit, but thanks.

Got them before they were shipped.  Now string loafers and chukkas headed my way. 

post #2369 of 23814

^^^ That's a heck of a one-two punch.  Well done. :D
