but the boot doesn't look like it is goodyear welt, that is a minus, and the captoe seam is folded, not my preference. but still a decent boot if you can overlook the flaws.

Do you think these are good year welted?

they fit large; same deal as Moma - size down one. Im not sure what the quality is like now, but the two pairs I picked up about two years ago (dress shoes and boots) were pretty poorly made. Also, the leather felt cheap - thin and plastic-like. would only recommend if you're in need of some beaters for everyday wear, at DEEP discount - $40/$50. they aint worth more than that.

Thanks coco. I'm happy with the MOMAs I have and was thinking about trying these out. Looks like I will skip them now.

Does anyone know how Yukuten moccasins fit? I wear a size bigger in sneakers and boat shoes than I do in dress shoes and work boots...

fyi, zappos has the Made in USA Chippewas boot back in stock. Unlined, dark brown, with an embossed logo above the outer ankles, though it doesn't show too much with the dark color.

Thoughts? I have no idea how the quality of these are or if there are any specific sizing issues I should know. I just want some simple brown chukkas/boots in the sub $130 range, and I'm not really in the mood to pay full price for Clarks DBs.

I could get behind those if they were in a more interesting color/ design

Allen Edmonds just released a new color for their cordovan line. They're calling it Cappuccino and the "Dundee" looks stellar:

Yeah, not the most exciting shoes in the world, but I'm just trying to fill a basic niche right now. Because they're marked down ($301 off?), I don't think I can return them so just trying to see if anyone familiar with their shoes has any insight into their sizing and quality before I pull the trigger.

 

Any recommendations for alternatives would also be greatly appreciated. Like I said, I'd be cool with something as basic as Clarks DBs, but it's hard to find the Beeswax model in my size and I really don't see them being worth their recently increased price.

I’m looking at buying my first pair of streetwear shoes. I wear dark raw denim and chinos so I’ve always gone with sneakers. After doing some reading, I think what I’m after is a brown plain-toe derby or slip-on boat shoe. What I basically want is a casual, versatile shoe for wearing during the day. I’m in Australia so my options are limited. I have come across these Vanishing Elephant shoes on special, and they are available in my size:

 

Vanishing Elephant - Munchen Derby Slip On - Tan

 

They are slip-ons, but they come with laces.

 

More pictures here: http://www.incuclothing.com/shop/product1194#Vanishing

 

What do you guys think?

post #4498 of 5231
those Opening ceremony and Vanishing elephant are good options if you can find them on more than 50% off sale. good looking shoes if you are not looking for the last word in quality.

Why can't you buy a decent pair of shoes in Australia... stores closed, postal strike on?

Personally I think those shoes are too light for dark denim. For one thing they will transfer dye, for two it wouldn't be a good match (generally) because they aren't very versatile... you probably wouldn't want to wear them to work, the pub, and a date.

Obvious suggestion: go with a darker brown derby shoe, or a boot for a first piece of everyday footwear.
