Hi folks.


I was wondering if anybody has sprung for the Seavee's Trailboot? What're your impressions? Is it worth the pricetag? Cheap, I suppose, for a pair of trailboot moccasins (comp. to Quoddy's, etc.) but still not that cheap on this busted grad student's budget. Or do you have something else in mind that you think I should be diggin'?

Thanks much.

Saw a pair of these at Ian in Seattle. They look pretty nice, and the price seemed pretty reasonable. Leather quality looked pretty nice. Didn't try it on, so I couldn't tell you much more other than that they looked pretty high quality.

SOLD The 7-eye Trail boots are extremely nice - I sprung for a pair (SIZE 8 1/2) this past winter and absolutely love them. I've only worn them outside 3 times, as I got them toward the end of the season and am more of a flip-flop/boat shoe kind of guy during the warm weather. They retail at $210, but I might be willing to let them go for $175/OBO, seeing as they're practically brand new. PM me if interested, and I can send pictures and additional details. They're very nice but I'm on a student budget as well!

Sold The Seavees are hitting Ebay - check out the auction if you're interested in making an offer.

I'm just gonna say that I've worn these for a year of moderate urban trekking and the rubber sole has worn down through to the foam footbed. These aren't worth paying retail for. Shell out for the Quoddys.

I had the same problem but also the stitching on the front lip of the boot was becoming frayed and letting in a lot of water so I emailed Seavees and they replaced them with this years new season boot which is suppose to be better constructed.
The walnut leather they use is beautiful but I think I'll sell them, they are a size us 9, and I'm based in Ireland and I'll let them go for 130 euro if anyones interested pm me.

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.
