I want a pair but $400 for sperry's is insane. Here's to hoping that they'll last until sales start to hit.

These aren't made in China like the BoO x Sperry top siders, are they?

Yes they are, and it's displayed very prominently on the tongue.

^ That is disappointing. Nothing screams fashion victim more than $400 boots made in China. I saw a pair of RL Polo dirty bucks at DSW for $45 but the "Made In China" was all I needed to keep my wallet pocketed. There are so many US-made options, why go down this road-----and pay a larger premium?

So for $400 you can get BoO x Sperry boots made in China by, one would assume, Sperry's own factory..... or you could buy the Rogues Gallery Marlin Deck boot made in America by Quoddy for $25 less...

Based on this, and the upcoming F/W line, I have to assume Scott Sternberg is smoking rocks.
