I jumped on the McCoppin NST in Nat Chrome excel style 40201
Anyone with experience with 'kudu'? Trying to find a non-shell shoe for the winter and have it narrowed down to the Leffot pre-order for a LWB w/crepe sole in kudu or the AoC brown suede LWB w/commando. I'm really on the fence and positive/negative comments on kudu could be the deciding factor. Actual shots in the wild would be great as I would really like to see how these shoes age. Thanks.
I have a pair kudu Indy with lug soles and really like them. Very durable, hold up well to wet weather and comfortable hide.. I like them a lot due to the oil resistant sole and hide that holds up well and will wear well over time in harsh conditions
I weirdly really like the PT Calf boot now up on Unionmade, especially the commando sole with winter looming. My only concern is how the tan calf would hold up? Obviously its not your typical "beater" leather, but does anyone have any images of aged dark tan? Or care to comment on how resilient the leather is in general? I know Alden calf does not get a ton of love on here, but I thought I would ask...
They had shipped me a pair of those by mistake..they were very nice...I sent them back for what I originally wanted...you will not be disappointed
Haha, all you need to make your collection complete is the Alden Opera Pump. I'd pay to see that on your feet!
Guys - much thanks. I preferred the kudu's but it was a really close call. As Hill indicates, I certainly couldn't go wrong with the AoC commando's. Kudu's add diversity to my collection and though I love commando, crepe is my sole of choice by a slim margin. The pic by Hill definitely sealed it for me. Those are some great looking 3-year old boots.
Again, much thanks.
