    Great boot.

    They're made buy a Canadian company called Dayton for Wings + Horns. I have a couple pairs of Daytons, but they don't look like the pair above. Wow, $720.00 is steep, but I can tell you the quality/build of my Daytons is pure craftsmanship.

    Barney's co-op has a pair that's similar, although I'm not sure about the consitency or texture...definitely worth taking a look at, especially because they're probably on sale now

    first thought that came to my mind:

    Surplus Army Boots.

    Cost: probably around $50

    They don't. These are nothing like any surplus boot. If anyone can find I pair, I'll rescind my statement. Otherwise, my statement is this: You people are idiots.

    the boots have a unique (fashion forward) toe box and are pretty slim, i dont think ill find that in a surplus

    Don't know about the Owens, but much the Sid boots are made in Mexico instead of good ol' USA like the classic Brandos (to be discontinued?[​IMG]) or Engineer model. Quality is understandably lower according to reviews on here.

    +1 on SId's quality, i love the boot, but I'm worried how long its gona last me... My first Fryes Engineers bought in the 80s are still going strong [​IMG]

    I returned a pair of the Sids to Zappo's, kept the Brando lace ups instead. The look of the cognac Brandos seemed much nicer. The wrap-around lacing on the Sids also seemed like a pain.
