The streetwear shoes and boots thread...No sneakers please - Page 252
Burfords are a little more traditional, and Freds more of a modern british "smart" look, t least some makes have larger broguing, contrast sole, etc. This may not make a huge difference, especially if you're in the states and people dont really know the distinction but FWIW.
Yeah, they were ok, not necessarily mind-blowing. I actually found the 45s a little roomy on me, which is surprising given what I've heard about NDC sizing, but I like my footwear snug. I didn't spend too much time looking over them, since I'm taking a gamble on, uh, something else.
All the Grensons that i've seen in boutiquey fashion stores lately have been real shit quality - the leather felt plasticky and i'm pretty sure was corrected grain. I know their top line used to be really good.
Loake 1880 is at least full grain leather.
i think i said i went tts before and it was a mistake, i sank in them, i reordered 2 pairs... one is in 10.5 and one is in 10, i think at least a .5 size down is necessary, i just thought since i have flat feet that an 11 would be ok.... wrong...
good thing there is a barneys in sf, hope the buttero didn't sell out!
Imported = Made in China. I paid more than that for quality mountain boots made in France. It looks good if its the only thing you can afford. Another $100 gets you Bestard boots made in Spain.
It depends on the model and colour. I have the Freds in black and the leather is lovely. The dark brown (honey or whatever) is corrected and coated!
i didnt feel that the last was narrow, it may narrow out towards the heel for stability but otherwise decent size, i am an 11 with flat feet and they fit well, just too bug
The zipper placement on the Varvatos made me think those were Lanvins at first.
Most places only stock the lowest line of Grensons, which tends to feel like plastic glued on a sole
