The streetwear shoes and boots thread...No sneakers please - Page 290

post #4336 of 5243
I really like the following pair of boots:

http://www.zeeandco.co.uk/Paul_Smith_Shoe/b654/sc654/p269162.aspx

But I can't find a supplier anywhere with a size 8 (UK) in stock. Can anyone either suggest an alternative within a similar price range, or advise on websites that might stock them?

Also what are your thoughts on these:

Thanks

Size 9 in black - http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/Paul+Smith+Paul+Smith+Kasmin+boots/157184220,default,pd.html - they come up pretty narrow, so you might need to size up on your normal size.

Alternatively if you're near any bricks and mortar higher end department stores it might be worth calling in - Selfridges, House of Frazer, Fenwicks etc. normally stock Paul Smith

I can't comment on the Rossi,s but I have a pair of Blundstone 500s made in Australia, a decade old, and I've resoled them once. THe leather is still pretty much good as new - really thick; the gore is a little stretched out but serviceable.

But newer Blundstones are made in Indonesia, I think, and maybe the quality is down a little. I've handled some new ones in stores and can't really tell the difference. Perhaps the leather, gore or stitching is a little less robust.

Rossi leather is 2.2-2.4 mm; Blundstone says theirs is 2.5. I've heard 2.7 mm in the past.

I prefer the profile of the Blundstone sole, but the Rossis look a little more comfortable. What I would say is go with the one that fits you better, if you can try them both on.

As for resoling, you will hear you can't resole Blundstones, but there's an outfit in Idaho or Montana that does so, with a Vibram replacement and recondition leather, for about $65.

How are these Chippewa boots? The JCrew branded ones are way too expensive.. These still look awesome and are a lot more affordable to boot. Anyone have any experience with them?

There is actually a thread on that boot that might be worth a look.

It's called the Jones boot (nudge to the Indy). On the Paul Smith website in burgundy and grey

Consider paddock or "chelsea" boots? See Charles Tyrhwitt, His shoes ( British made)are all-leather, fit like bespoke/custom and the Lasts are usually sized perfectly. Boot cut still best, IMO.

Oops, mistyped: Tyrwhitt

Be careful - some of the Tyrwhitt shoes are re-badged Loake 1880's others are the cheaper and nastier Loake lines. I think they've also re-badged Barkers.
