I love this shoe so much. Can anyone help me find it? Is it just discontinued or very hard to find?
Does C&J make this shoe under their own label?

They haven't made them for two or three years. I regret not having bought them when I had the chance.

Ron Rider makes some very nice SC chukkas. Search SF and you'll be able to see pics of them. I have the McCallums and they are a great boot, I don't own any of Ron's boots but they look very nice and people who do own them seem to like them a lot.

Yes, I realize. It is a true shame. The new shell chukkas Polo had last year (with the stitched apron) were nowhere near as good, IMO.

Good point. My issue with RR is sizing - don't have anywhere to try the stuff on.

Hate to resurrect an old thread, but does anyone know if any RL stores still carry these in old stock? If not, anyone know where you can get them?

Been looking for a pair, either new or barely used!

What an amazing deal by the way... I recall when Bluefly first started, they actually had a showroom in downtown NYC!

Don't understand all this fanfare.

The shoe is ugly as sin and blobby like no other.

And then people buy them and then don't know what to wear them with. :facepalm:
