I have two pairs of N****'s Manito Oxfords and I love them... I also have a pair of W**** JH Classics and they are pretty good as well.Question for the group: Anyone have an advice on "whites-like" oxfords/derbies that aren't actually White's? I haven't tried the Otto Derby or the First Avenue Oxford and may yet, but I did get a pair of the old-school White's Oxfords, which was my lone miss with White's - far too stiff. I'm not interesting in spending Viberg Derby money, but any other shoes in that vain that others would recommend?
The Manito is a screaming deal considering what White's 300 Oxford goes for... the build quality among all three are excellent.
Plus if you know your size in a White's 55 last, you know your size in other Spokane maker's 55 last.
Make sure you ask for hand welted not McKay or stitchdown so you are comparing apples to apples... but it is a handsome shoe! I do not like posting competitors products on a White's thread as White's will always be first among equals in my heart, but I will make an exception this once.
