    Hello.

    I'm pretty interested in picking up a pair of dark brown chukkas. unfortunately, every chukka that i have seen does not have a mildly elegant last. many chukkas have a very rounded toe, and i'm sure that is how a chukka is supposed to look like.

    however, i'd like to find a chukka with a slimmer last.

    any ideas?

    Thanks

    The Grenson Heather has a pretty sleek last.

    Yes, same shoe - pardon, should have mentioned that due to the extreme color difference.

    Heshung has a nice sleek chukka. I don't know if they make the Faconnable chukka?

    I think I have the boot you mean, but it has two eyeholes on each side rather than three. Lovely shoe from their "Heritage" collection - mine's in a kind of chestnut-red leather but I've seen it in brown suede and black leather. I'd love a pair in beige suede.
