The streetwear shoes and boots thread...No sneakers please - Page 263

post #3931 of 5238

I'm having trouble finding the right simple, brown plaintoe boot. Willing to spend and/or hunt for preowned. Here's where I'm at:

 

Lands' End Canvas Lace-up Boot: Loved the styling, not the quality. Corrected-grain leather developed the bad kind of wrinkles instantly, got an ugly gouge on a not-very-abusive first wearing. Returned.

 

And at the other end of the cost/quality spectrum:

Alden Plaintoe on Trubalance: Returning these to JCrew after finding the toebox too wide/long/high/bulbous. Not for me.

 

So basically, I'm looking for a classic American-styled boot that's more compact and sleek, like the LE boot, but high enough quality to last/get recrafted eventually. Ideas?

Creeper sole was created by one punk brand in 70s~80s, and made by George Cox. Then the designer discontinue that brand, then George Cox make it by demand from those punk shop 'till now. Before 70's, G. Cox only made formal shoes... So this like old styles reborn!

I like their slim designs, but don't expect more than one season wear outta them.

I've been looking for an all-weather three-season shoe. Requirements: non-leather sole, non-suede, under $500, not too formal - I mainly wear chinos. Below is what I've got so far - Sanders, Paraboot, and Tricker's. Any other suggestions - anything I'm missing? Thanks in advance -

Barker Hamilton - dainite soled - not as nice as tricker's but not bad leather http://www.pediwear.co.uk/barker/products/2913.php
Loake Edward - victory soled - not bad for the price http://www.pediwear.co.uk/loake/products/3464.php
C&J Pembroke - almost up to tricker's quality IMO - http://www.pediwear.co.uk/crockett/products/779.php
Cheaney Tenterden - maybe too formal for what you're after, but these are much nicer in the flesh than the photos suggest - http://www.herringshoes.co.uk/product-info.php?selectedColourid=2666&brandid=5&catid=143&shoeid=5148&selectedSizeid=0&selectedFitid=0#

Profile is actually quite nice. That being said, I'd purchase these instead

The Mali's would be 2nd choice but only because the profile looks good.

I'd go with a Parachoc Super Touring. I have it and the slim profile works well with jeans and casual wear. Its a nice pair of mountain urban boots made by Paraboot in France. Well worth the C= 264 I paid for them.
