Nothing has ever made more sense. :satisfied:

Some general ideas, and some specifics.

 

Vasque boots are great, if your feet run on the narrow side. I have a slightly odd shaped foot, and can't even wear their wide model for a 9.5 (I normally wear a 9.5 D). As for the St. Elias model, I've sold a lot of those on Ebay, but have none now. They are good boots, if they fit your feet. Also, check out the Breeze GTX 2.0 model. They are a bit cheaper at retail, and might be cheaper used if you can find them.

 

 

I would suggest trying on some different brands. Go into the REI store in Dallas and try on all the brands they sell. Find out which ones fits your foot well.

 

My favorite brands are Alico and Zamberlan (both are made in Italy). I got my Alicos from Sierra Trading Post at a considerable discount new. I think the price ended up being about $125 shipped for a $280 pair of boots. Zamberlans are much harder to find used, and tend to resell very well. They sell them at REI, at least here and in the Bay Area.

 

That being said, my tendency for boots is to use them at least once a week. I might fall into a different use group than you, since I'm often on rocky trails and scrambling up in the mountains.

Thank you,

 

This is good advice and I will let you know after I try some on.

Some fun stuff this week. My favorites are the Alden shell, BL/RB original wayfarers (which are mint) and the vintage colorblock cookie patch RL sweater. I found that shit in the middle of the Bronx, which makes it so much better for me smile.gif

Don't recognize the maker - anyone know who makes shoes in England for Sid Mashburn (I know Edward Green does, but not sure if these are EG's or not...)?
