Can anyone recommend a quality desert/chukka boot with goodyear construction? Love the style, hate throwing a pair away every year and would prefer to resole if possible. Thank you.

BTW, AFAIK, Goodyear Welt isn't the only type that can be resoled. Rancourt makes some Blake Stitched Chukkas worth checking out. I'm sure there are others.a quality desert/chukka boot with goodyear construction...would prefer to resole if possible
Good looking shoe, but it seems that stitchout would provide less water resistance than a Goodyear construction. Can you speak to that at all? Thanks for the recommendation.
Fantastic shoes, thanks for the recommendations. I'm not familiar with White's but it looks like they make fine shoes. I had a nice pair of Blake stitched Oxfords but had a bad experience with the only cobbler near me with a Blake machine; the potential for $500 mistakes make me hesitant to go that route. Thanks for your thoughts, though.Off the top of my head (and all Made in USA, if that matters)...

White's is one of a number (probably the original) of makers (e.g. Nicks, Wesco) who make high quality, no nonsense workboots, a number of which are geared those who fight forest fires. All three makers seem to have well-deserved and good reputations among those who use boots hard. Here's an enormous style forum thread on White's in case you're interested:I'm not familiar with White's but it looks like they make fine shoes.
