    If this helps, I had a Chippewa service and currently have 3 pairs of 1K (Krause, 721 and 744). To make the comparison fair, I will only be talking about Chippewa and Krause, as both 721 and 744 are in another league. Krause is a lot more refined boot whereas Chippewa is a typical work boot. Both are extremely well made, but I felt that Chippewa is virtually indestructible. They, however, were not as comfortable as the Krause.

    I have used these. but the adhesive did not keep them on for more than two months. The material itself does feel like it's made of a quality material.
    I disagree. If you want shiny, i.e., mirror or high shine shoes, they won't come like that out of the box. Ironic given your screen name that you recommend not polishing.
    Bingo.
    $200 is a steal. I would definitely keep.
    Agree with you.

    Great makeup. I asked Allison for a sample of AE navy leathers for a possible navy MTO as well.

    I jut happen to have my Bayfields on today, and you made me look down at my feet. To my dismay, I had scuffed one toe pretty bad - probably caught it on my emerg brake in the car. Don't have a brush at my office, so found an old cloth. Bit of ever-so-light rub with the cloth, and GONE! Between the CXL and the waxiness of the LP, you can buff them up at any time! Here's the scuffed shoe, post buff.

    I have navy Nuemoks that are made with different leather than the stock version. The color is great, thinking about other options in the same color as well.

    Thinking ahead for a wedding in June -- my wife is a bridesmaid, and the bride has specifically requested that I wear a seersucker suit... which I see as an excuse to buy appropriate footwear.

    Nobody makes white bucks in my size.

    I'm considering an MTO Leeds in the Player's shoe's white suede with the sole of their Doubleday loafer:

    I'm limited to 1, 3, 5, or 7 lasts to get AA width. As long as I'm thinking MTO, does anybody have any thoughts for other models I might consider? Shelton saddle shoes, maybe?

    Sounds phenomenal. I actually inquired with Allison about a pair of Graysons just this morning, so we'll see what she says.

    Is the "fox stitching" something different than the moc toe? Also, what is the "binding" area?

    I'm assuming it came in at $345?
