Aside from being cordovan, those look almost identical to the JCrew chukkas I got on sale last season..right down to the "Treaded rubber sole." Hoping quality is comprable...I've only had them a few months now.
Yeah... Not likely, smartie addict. My roomate has the Jcrew shoes you're talking about, I think - they're pretty nice, especially for what, $60, but not C+J cordovan. I should mention that J Crew seems to have gotten significantly better than they used to be. I have a pair of moctoes purchased in 2002 that are just trash. Woops.
