I need some help. I want to grab a boot for the fall and I have it narrowed down to the Winn Perry CT Tan Vegano Calf or a standard Snuff Chukka. I want to be able to wear it in slightly damp weather like the fall can sometimes be in the Northeast, but I would switch to something more rugged once the salt is on the ground. 

I know the usual advice would be to just buy both, but I unfortunately cannot do that right now. Also, does anyone know of any other plain toe or ct boots on commando that would fit the bill for my above requirements, but could also be worn in the slush if need be? I love the Winn Perry Boot, but I am hesitant bc of the Double Waterlock....

Any help appreciated!

Thanks!

I love the suede chukka, it's one of my favorite Alden models, but it wouldn't be my number one choice for a fall shoe. If I were to choose only one, I would go for a boot (I see the chukka as somewhere between a shoe and a boot), so in this case my vote goes to the Winn Perry CT.

The snuff chukka is more of a spring/summer/early fall boot. It is very lightweight and flexible. When it gets to later fall and into winter, I tend to box it up. For your purpose, the Winn Perry boot is likely better

Did those get re released or did they just find a pair sitting around somewhere? I'd really love that shoe and will be kicking myself to no end if I missed it again.

Many thanks to those who replied about belts that match whiskey and ravello shell.  I should be able to find something from those sources.  Thanks again.

Probably the latter - they weren't there a day or two ago.

I own both boots in question and whole heartedly agree.

The smell dissipates after a few wearings. I don't know if I'd describe it as off putting, just different from most leathers. Wonderful wearing leather though! Love my smooth chamois and CXL pieces!

From yesterday:

Leather Soul Alpine Grain v-tips. I wish I would have worn these more this summer - the Alpine Grain always looks fantastic in the sunshine.

Best not to know. I assume he's talking about his recipe for tuna-fried chicken.
