Yup, it's that bad

a much better boot for the money:

Wolverine Montague ($250, Goodyear welted, Horween leather)

just make sure to size down 1 full size from your street shoes

I think it's fine since that distress/dirty look seems like what they aim for. Paul Smith can be 1000 times worse.

It looks worse in person, trust me. It actually looks like the boot has been chewed by a dog.

That is terrible. Reminds me of the $1000 "designer" t-shirts with a bunch of holes in them.

I've never been a fan of the Chelsea boot style.

Looks like a pretty nice shoe for what they were aiming for. Which was a distressed boot for wearing with jeans aimed at the streetwear market.

AE has made much worse.

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
