Was wondering if anyone knows where I would be able to find them locally before I go to my last resort and order some online.

Thanks in advance!

I went into Novelty once about a year ago or so asking about these. The guy behind the counter just threw me some few free.

eBay is easiest and where I get them. I have a pair if you need them and can throw them in the mail.

Awesome! I will check it out. Thanks! This is the one on Yonge and Adelaide right?

That would be great! Of course only if you don't need them. I'll need a bunch for future pairs of shoes since it seems I notice it on almost all shoes I wear (not including sneakers).

Send me a pm if you can't get them at novelty. I too have low instep syndrome and am making it a point to buy lasts suited towards this.
There isn't many of them.
Another suggestion is to choose elongated lasts and size down half.

Looks like Orazio Luciano was in town this weekend. Did anyone make it out? Any information about a return date?

Any suggestions for locally available Chelsea Boots that would be good for beat around casual use? I'd consider something like Loding ($330) or up, but not for this intended purpose (not so much the cost as the refined-ness). I find Blundstone's too bulbous. Aiming for around the $200 mark and not corrected grain. I understand this might be a tall order.

Velasca Chelsea boots? Right on $200 now. (https://www.velasca.com/en/product/men-chelsea-boots/157-men-chelsea-boots-dark-brown-polished-binder-leather-vibram-rubber-sole-malnatt.html)

No offense but these look awful IMO.

I'm not a Velasca customer so no offence taken. It's near impossible to meet all your requirements...

I hear you but I'm not looking for any.

Are Kent Wang's Sunglasses the best choice in the <$100 range? The exchange makes me question the value.

 

Wondering if there's anything locally. Looking for plastic frames as a beater pair. Wayfarer or Persol 714 style.

I had actually thought of these right after I posted. Not the best looking Chelsea, sure...but basically what I was thinking for the intended use. I'm not so sure about "bookbinder leather"...just another name for corrected grain?

I think you'll probably find these "too bulbous"...
(I don't have their Chelsea but I have couple of their shoes and in general, they're more bulbous than the Meermins)

Funny and sad: Apparently our $20 duty free exemption has not changed since 1985.... There is some faint hope, though:


U.S. duty-free limit for web purchases 40 times higher than Canada's; New $800 US ceiling draws fire from critics of Canada's $20 Cdn exemption
