FedEx just delivered the Chukkamoks I got on the clearance sale. I realized I needed some boots that weren't so heavy and hot for the summer. These seemed to fit the bill (cheaper than the Alden flex-welt chukkas, which I am sure are better quality, but for more than twice the price...). The name has put me off them ever since AE released them but being on clearance got me over that. These are only 13oz, compared to my CXL Indys which are almost a pound heavier. These chukkas are like wearing slippers. Good value for the money. I think I'll darken them a bit, as they almost look like pale human skin, especially the vamp.
