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?
