IMO, sickest boots i have ever seen. however a lil too steep for my university student budget (720)

anyone know of a similar substitute? thanks

surplus army boots would be a cheap and fitting alternative?

Great boot.

They're made buy a Canadian company called Dayton for Wings + Horns. I have a couple pairs of Daytons, but they don't look like the pair above. Wow, $720.00 is steep, but I can tell you the quality/build of my Daytons is pure craftsmanship.

Barney's co-op has a pair that's similar, although I'm not sure about the consitency or texture...definitely worth taking a look at, especially because they're probably on sale now

Officine Creative laceup workboots That grainy leather on the W+H boots looks shitty, IMO.

first thought that came to my mind: Surplus Army Boots. Cost: probably around $50

They def look military ish but I haven't found any similar.

Brown ones are nice.

They don't. These are nothing like any surplus boot. If anyone can find I pair, I'll rescind my statement. Otherwise, my statement is this: You people are idiots.

I returned a pair of the Sids to Zappo's, kept the Brando lace ups instead. The look of the cognac Brandos seemed much nicer. The wrap-around lacing on the Sids also seemed like a pain.
