    Just received a pair of Brando Engineers in size 10.5" I would say that these fit an 11". They are great looking, but i have to let them go, i need the money. They are in the "buy and sell" section.

    I picked up the Frye Chukka Manny Oxford boots for cheap at the Zappos outlet. I sized one half size down and they look great to me.

    Frye boots look great but I've had durability issues with them.

    I agree great boots, but not the most durable. I have had mine a year and some months, don't wear them daily and am looking at resoling the rubber heal wedge already.

    I picked up a pair of distressed Fulton lace ups... hopefully they aren't as chewed up as in the photos. They say they're each distressed by hand so we shall see... i think they're kinda cool regardless. I know that may change upon actually receiving them haha

    And then i'm pretty sure they're the pair the model is wearing on the front of the men's section

    Haha actually i agree, i saw them on Zappos before i went and looked at them on Frye's site. Fucking ridiculous description but who cares. I can pretend i never read it if i keep them.

    I don't think I said this in this thread already, but I have been rather disappointed with the quality of my Brando Lace's. I got them 2 for $170 bucks or something like that, but they were not supposed to be seconds or anything, so I think I am justified. Unless, they were returned and instead of sending them back, the retailer just sent them to their outlet.

    Anyhow, the eyelets are rough and jagged, to the point that about 10 wears in, the laces are almost ripped through. About half the eyelets on my brown and black pair are like this. And, the insole is not glued in very well. I have almost completely ripped it out, again in 10 wears. And I undo the laces very far down so I am not wrestling in and out of them.

    My brown pair were somewhat distressed I suppose. They were not matched to each other very well. I had to spend quite a bit of time with black polish to darken one boot to match the other.

    That is my vent.

    I received them today.

    They run a half size larger than normal, fyi.

    The toe is slightly bulbous... they are made in mexico and it kind of shows.

    When i handle them they look very similar to the Wolverine Montgomery except distressed... the leather seems the exact same type and quality. The soles feel like cheap wood.. in fact i can see some parts along the sole where it meets the leather where it looks like the stitching is making the wood splinter funky and the natural wood color shows where they didnt get painted. When i reached my hand inside a strip of velcro came out of the toe area? Weird. And part of the insole pulled away on top like it could come apart in layers... sort of strange.

    The distressing isn't anywhere near as savage as shown in the pics which is good i suppose.

    They aren't even half as comfortable to stand in as the Montgomerys were though = prob not a keeper. Esp considering they cost almost exactly the same.

    The description says it fits TTS, but I've heard Frye's sizing can be all over the place. Anyone wanna chime in here?

    Then why ask if you have to wait until spring to get them? Check endless.com. I saw these on there yesterday.
