Any guesses as to who makes these boots for Orvis?

    Elegant enough for dress wear, rugged enough for the field, these shoes feature a quality leather upper stitched to a Dainite rubber sole that has raised traction nubs. The final of over 200 individual steps, layer after layer of tinted paste, then rich wax are painstakingly buffed into each brogue. Leather lined with a full leather orthotic. In brown. England. $349

    Tough to tell. Since you asked for guesses, I'd say Alfred Sargent.
    Although I have never seen any Sargents in that leather, all three pair of Sargent boots I have have the pointy triangle stitching on the tongue. (I think that Trickers don't have this feature, and may all have gussetted tongues.)

    Almost certainly Sargent, they made chukkas and brogues for Orvis last year. I have the chukkas and they are really nice.

    My guess is Barker. They look remarkably like the Harrison, which also features a Dainite sole, made on last 29. They're not exactly the same, but then, the Harrison looks like a new release. And I can't find a better-matching Sargent, so I think my theory is at least plausible.

    Sargent used that leather on their Peal chukkas from a couple of seasons ago. Mine, with Dainite soles, have had a ton of use. Much better-made than their reputation suggests.
