    Hardly wear the dunks, moment has somewhat passed, no? I mean maybe it'll get uncool enough that wearing them is fun again.

    note: designer sneakers are kinda dead imho.

    ^^ äsch, not true. But sure, they are not beautiful per se, but more like an European luxury tank of black horse leather.

    If I stopped wearing things because their moment had passed, I don't know how I'd get dressed in the morning.

    Dinkelacker look really good. I have Vass and Materna and enjoy the sturdy aspect of the later.

    what do you mean 'went through'? you mean you literally wore them out? (i haven't even gotten round to breaking mine in yet..)

    I meant that I bought first pair, wore it once and sold it.

    Few years passed and picked up another pair, never wore it and sold it.

    After sometime I picked up again along with the boot and ended up selling both without wearing them.

    They look really good from the side profile fwiw..

    @accordion - how about Vass a model 1033 on a Budapester last? What you seem to be looking for definitely seems to be in that Austro-Hungarian tradition.

    There are none. But that is the shoe you are looking for. You can go here: http://www.vass-shoes.com/ and mindsplice things to get you the visual image you need.

    I was thinking more of the F last though but Vass when done right is beautiful. Guys in the artisanal thread talk about leather boots all the time but Vass would be equally as cool. I find some semblance between Vass and MMoria if both done in a simple black shoe.

    The F and Peter or P2 last are both good, but the Raf derby is clunky and deliberately awkward, and the Budapester is naturally a bit clunky and middle European sensible and clunky.

    What about cheaper options than Vass? And is the only way to get the 1033 on a wide last to go MTM from their Canadian retailer?

    Found some others,

    In my (admittedly) extremely limited sample of 1 pair of black Chelsea boots, I wouldn't recommend apc unless u just wanted beaters and are not concerned abt leather quality/look/feel.
