Coming from a guy that doesn't like plain toe shoes...I really like those Olive PTBs.
Chukkas look great. Given the slightly darker shade and dainite soles, wouldn't they be appropriate for Fall wear? I have the Alden snuff suede flex welts which are great for Spring/Summer, but their use pretty much ends there. I am looking for a chukka that can be worn in Fall/Winter.
I'd rock those year round without a doubt.
I am seriously considering them. I just don't have any experience with the Detroit last
I hear it is Barrie-ish. I believe not quite as much volume, though.
I orderd my first pair Carmina (Simpson last) last week and they arrived yesterday. The shoes fit very well and they look great. Thanks for the fast shipping!
^^ Wow those are nice!
I think you are right. Now I just need to get them added to my string loafer shipment to avoid double shipping. Hopefully not too late.
The peeps at Skoak will have better info, but I know it is a wider fitting last - more in a group with Rain and Soller - opposite end of the spectrum from the slender Simpson. I tried on a pair once, but it was long enough ago that I can't give any fit specifics other than generally a wider fitting last.
@Braddock - very sharp!
Leaves: The suede chukkas look awesome, but why dont you have Them in bigger size Than 10.5UK?
Leaves mentioned earlier in the thread it fits like Rain
Thanks. Damnit, but thanks.
Got them before they were shipped. Now string loafers and chukkas headed my way.
^^^ That's a heck of a one-two punch. Well done.
Beautiful! How did you find your size?
