Where are you going to be wearing them, i.e. what conditions do you want them for?
The streetwear shoes and boots thread...No sneakers please - Page 322
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..
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.
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.
