Looking to buy my first pair of cordovan shoes and wanted some opinions on a pair of chukkas vs longwings. I want a versatile shoe that can be worn with a suit as well as a pair of jeans.

Get the PTBs in #8s. It's the most versatile shoe they make. The "Swiss Army Knife" of shoes. I suppose if you must, the Chukka in #8 would work, but personally I can't trust a shoe that doesn't know if it's a boot or a shoe biggrin.gif

I think both of those shoes can pull double duty. I think it may depend on the color also.

Probably can't tell the difference between PTB and Chukkas with your pant leg down! It just adds a little flair when you flash some ankle!

 

Since fall is coming up, I say chukka. Still extremely versatile.

I'm VERY surprised that tifosi is even considering something with out STITCHING on the toes rotflmao.gif

 

You can't go wrong with anything in #8

Good one, Tampa. I'm slowly working my way to plain toe!

 

I agree 100% with that second statement.

I've got to second Tampatravel on his choice of the #8 ptb's as a good all rounder. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest some LWB's in any colour you can find as an alternative. Otherwise, anything in Alden shell cordovan will be accepted with open arms on this thread. Good luck.

Look, Tampa...no stitching! LOL. Unless you count the stitching to attach the cap!

You have fit issues with the Grant, sazon? Or do you just not like the shape?
