    Sorry if this has been posted before...this search function only pulls up stuff from years ago. I'm looking to get a new pair of boots. I prefer 8" boots, but I'm not opposed to nice 4" or 12" either. For reference, the boots need to be casual, but not too much like a work boot. I've usually found styles I like among Frye and John Varvatos... I was wondering if anybody can comment on the quality of these and/or offer better alternatives. Thanks in advance.

    I probably don't want to exceed $500. If possible, I'd like to stay between $300 and $450...but I would spend a little extra if need be.

    Interesting...thanks for the feedback. I agree that you'd think that wouldn't be an issue.

    Allen Edmonds Long Branch is a pretty cool boot IMO.

    I have used
    Frye and definitely recommendable but why not get a custom one? itailor and some other good options for online shoppers can be good choices.

    I guess I never really thought about a custom option. I wasn't sure what experiences people had with them. I'll definitely look into it. Thanks.

    Give Carmina some thought.
