    Just took a quick look through Yoox for some decent brogue boots, these are the ones that caught my eye (I know nothing about the brands):

    Any one of these? Or are they all bad?

    I kinda like #3 as well. No clue what they're actually like, though, just that they look decent in that picture.

    I like #3 best also (reminds me of Tricker's stows), but it's like twice as much as #1, which I don't think is too bad. Number two is prolly out though.

    Not really I fan of either to be honest, but if I had to pick, definitely the latter. This question has been asked quite a few times, but for mid range boots, unless you're dead set on the bulky toe workwear aesthetic, try Fiorentini Baker, Rachel Comey, Buttero, OC, Moma, etc. And some nice Daytons have been popping up on B&S lately. All of these brands make boots with a much better profile in my opinion.

    what are the brands? its prob best to go for the cheaper ones and save up for the stows. or better yet, get none and save up for the stows. its going to be like the blue blazer fiasco. just kop what you really want, itll save time and money (and headaches) in the end

    Not entirely sure if this is the right thread but I bought these from eBay and was wondering if they are legit. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Seller says they are size 41 - 8. Don't see any Dior markings on the sole and I've never seen the design before. Also thought size 41 is a size 7? Any help is appreciated!

    41 is a US 8, and those are legit alright. Legit ugly :fence:

    The gum toecap is actually kind of cool. Never expected to see that.
