I realized not wearing Brandos almost every day is not sooo good and time to get new boots.
Already own Frye Brando and Clark's Desert Boots. I'm not too fond of Gentleman's Traveler but I'd prefer something in a lace-up style.
I'm looking for something slong the same lines as Brandos, I hardly ever wear anything besides jeans, sweaters and button-downs. I prefer a lace-up, sole doesn't matter.

Recommend away, please.

Check the streetwear shoes thread for some ideas, and an idea of what you want would be helpful. There are so many different styles it's hard to recommend something. Do you want a dressier laceup than the Brando, or something more casual? Black, brown, tan, grey, what color? Leather soles, vibram, rubber?

Not knowing in any way what you're looking for, I'll recommend the LL Bean Katahdin boots. Amazing brown laceups that only get better with age, and more rugged and durable than the brandos. Look at the streetwear thread I mentioned to see examples of my boots and others.

Yes, a slight direction of what exactly you are looking for might be helpful. Do look at the websites of some of the shoe shops that ship internationally, too.

I like them. I'd probably only get them if I already had two or three other pairs of boots, though...

I like some of MOMA's designs. MJK and at least two other SFers wear MOMA.
