The streetwear shoes and boots thread...No sneakers please - Page 322

post #4816 of 5231
I don't really wear my boots in the summer, I generally stick to sneakers or boat shoes.

As for more all-season choices just don't get anything that is associated with winter like duck boots or anything with a winter pattern/material. I have a pair of ankle boots that are similar to the Dayton ones posted earlier on the page.

Hello one and all.

 

This is my very first post on your very fine site, and at the risk of getting off on the wrong, uh, foot, I'm afraid I've gotta poormouth a little, for which I apologize:

 

With regard to boots, what's the best that can be done for around $200-250US? I wear a 13US, prefer a little bit of chunk and some below-the-cuff interest (a cap toe, broguing, apron, etc.), and some kind of tread is necessary, but all I'm finding along those lines and at that pricepoint are dubious choices like Aldo and Frye. I even looked twice at some Rockports, god help me.

 

Aplogies, too, if this subject has already been covered; I went back decently far in these pages and didn't see anything. Poring over the backlog of this very thread I did see some good-looking cheapies from that guy who was pushing Flutterbyshoes, but as far as I can tell those exist only in some alternate reality, or perhaps Indonesia. 

 

I know that the best answer here would be "Wait until you have more money," but any second-best answers would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks very much. Even if no answers are forthcoming (which I could certainly understand), this forum in general in this thread in particular have been a great education.

Where are you going to be wearing them, i.e. what conditions do you want them for?

post #4819 of 5231

City walking, mostly. And I'm in Chicago, so they wouldn't even need to be able to handle hills. 

 

And I wouldn't be wearing them indiscriminately through snow nor rain, but having a little traction on ice would be great.

If you don't mind work boots check out the LL Bean Katahdins. Theres thread on here on them. I have a pair and they're great boots. I don't know if LL Bean still has the 30% off and free shipping coupons every now and then still.

Personally I was not impressed with my recent LL bean purchase I bought a pair of the classic duck boots with shearling..they felt kind of cheapie..not like some of the vintage ones..Somethings changed and I cant quite put a finger on it..Maybe its the fact  they don't manufacture all their boots in US anymore..

The Maine Hunting Shoe is still made in the US. Did you get the "Bean Boot" or the "Maine Hunting Shoe?"

I checked out the thread you mentioned, and though I'm subsequently a little worried about the color and finish on the Katahdins (it sounds like folks are finding them considerably different in real life than in the photos?), the moc-toe version definitely has some potential (the engineer version looks good, too, but it's a little blunt for my taste). Thanks for the tip.

The pics on google look accurate to my pair. The pics on LL Beans website the color is off. I got the engineer ones, the one with the captoe. The boots are excellent for the price.

I love these boots like a brother...they have tramped along some pretty unsavoury streets with panache. The only place I would not wear them is in a favela as I am not sure they would make it out of there on my feet. That sole can withstand a lot of punishment.
