Does anyone know where I can buy an affordable nicely silhouetted side zip boot? Kind of like the Margiela side-zip, just without the $900 price tag. I'm trying to get a good boot to wear with my TOJ Double Rider (really dark brown, almost black), aiming for something like this:

That pic doesn't show much in the way of footwear. Any better ref?

Here are my favorite side-zips with nice slim silhouettes:

Fiorentini + Baker "Elf" (I have several of these.. awesome slim silhouette, very comfortable)

432432

Price: ~430 - $475 depending on the store
Online: gimmeshoes.com, amrag.com, barneys.com (good luck finding the right color/size combo though)


Paul Smith Glenn (never seen these in person but they look nice and slim, and the curving zipper is cool. I'm gonna try and track down a pair to check out)
350350

Ohya, I know you said you wanted dark brown but the lighter color is much nicer on these:

350

Price: $700? Seems real pricey but I think Paul Smith has some yearly sales, no?
Online: Paul Smith store.. anyone seen 'em elsewhere?

n.d.c. Midway moto boot; just ordered a pair of these from Gilt.. haven't got 'em yet. Silhouette looks maybe a bit less slim than the F+B's

467467

Price: $289 from gilt.. they say $625 retail but I don't think I've ever seen n.d.c. quite that high

Moma side-zip - never found this one online or in-store, so not very useful, but they might put something out in the future.. they seem to make quality stuff

Here's the only pair of Margiela side-zips I've seen that don't have that cuban heel (which I can never get past). Yoox has 'em for $580, but only size 12. Nice silhouette indeed.. wish they had some in a medium brown leather:

Or if you want super high quality, wait 5+ years for someone to sell a pair of used Guidi side-zips in your size in the right color. I'd like to see some Guidi in person to see what all the fuss is about

The F+B boots are good. I wear them with a lot of my leather jackets. However, I had the heel taken down on mine; they're too hefty otherwise. After I got the heel reduced, it has a real slick side profile, and it looks good from the front and top too.

terrible
post #3638 of 5244
The Thorogoods are good boots. The price is right on them too. Not quite as nice as most Heritage Red Wings though.

So I've upgraded my shoes over the last few months and am pretty happy with the results. Trying to maintain a tight collection of 12 shoes max. I'm wondering if there are any obvious holes... any ideas?
I usually wear workwear, but also a little less casual: OBDs, blazers, cords/moleskins/jeans (see my WAYWT posts). Been debating about:

- Tricker's - I had a pair of Bourtons that never fit me properly and is the same shade as the Alden x J Crews so will probably sell them. Still.... I'd really like a pair of Trickers in a shade/style that isn't too similar to what I already have.

- Better pair of suede oxfords? Really like the Alden unlined suede oxfords from last summer. Not really a big deal since there's a lot of time between now and next summer.

- Different colors? Tempted by navy suedes, but I would never wear em too heavy.

- Black oxfords? Have had them in the past tho and they don't see as much use.

Wolverine 1000 mile boots fresh from working on my garage
Alden shell captoe boots
Loake kempton suede boots (like desert boots)

does anyone know of paul smith sales? those boots look awesome
also any experience, are they sturdy?
post #3642 of 5244
Yes, paul smith does go on sale.
I think I paid $178 US for my cesars from netclothing.net (a crappy company, but just for comparison).
Direct from PS they also have sales seasonally.

When people talk about the desert boot, Nathan Clark didn't really invent them. The first desert boot, inspired by shoes worn by the now-extinct Khoisan tribe of southern Africa, was made by the Dutch East India company in the mid 1600s. The modern version, made by Herbert Schier in Swapkomund, Namibia since since 1938, is called the vellskoen in Afrikaans. "Fells-skoon" being the correct pronuniciation. They're handcrafted, no one pair of shoes is exactly alike, made of the hide of the kudu antelope. Its worn to this day by nearly every one in South Africa and Namibia. They're tough, durable and unique in a world of mass-produced shoes - 30 pairs a day turned out by hand in standard UK shoe sizes and every since pair of shoes, is yes - handmade!

Also available in black as well as red!  $180.00 is a good price for quality, handmade desert boots!

Can someone recommend me a shoe that meets the following requirements?

1. Casual enough to be worn with jeans, but can be dressed up with a blazer/etc
2. Not too flashy - if there's broguing, it should be minimal or have a dark brown color (while walnut strands look nice I think they are too flash for me)
3. Under $300 ( open to using coupons )

Currently like these because they are a bit distressed/more subtle, but are around $450:

What other options might be somewhat subtle / dark brown / distressed for jeans wear?

Diemme and Stone Island are collaborating on a Combat boot. OK, they don't call a desert boot since its really a chukka but one can't helped but be impressed by the execution:

This bad ass mo f*ker could give Clarks a run for the money, $360 and it has Vibram rubber soles. You will love this look or you will hate it!
