I posted this in the Men's Clothing forum but was told I'd be better off posting here. Anyone have any idea what shoes the model is wearing here? I've tried contacting Obey but they haven't responded.







Thanks.

They look like something SeaVees would make, but I don't see those exact shoes on their website. Edit- so close:
SeaVees 12/62 Desert Boot. They're only shown in leather on the SeaVees site, but J.Crew appears to have them in khaki.

Obey finally got back to me and said that they are Generic Surplus from a few years ago but they are unsure of what style. I contacted Generic Surplus and they said "Though we work with Obey all the time I don't think those are ours."

So I e-mailed Obey back saying I found out they're not GS. Here's what I got:

Im sorry I had to look at the picture last time on my phone and they looked like a pair of Generic Surplus. They're actually from Hong Kong by a company called 5CM.
Now it's just a matter of finding them and buying them... can't seem to find anything about this 5CM stuff.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
