    Hi,

    I am from Hong Kong. I am an user. I am inspired by the current trend of colorful dress shoes & have made some work boots in some colors combo that I like. The boots are made in China by an bootsmaker in the traditional way while I had supplied most of the materials if not all of them including Italy vamp leather , Austrian sole leather, Italy lining, steel shrank, British linen thread (welt) , German nylon thread (vamp), Vibram 705 half front, Cats Paw NOS heel, O' Sulluvan NOS heel & Brass eyelet & buckle. I am also acting as the "QC" which tones of emails are sent to ensure the standard is upto mine.

    While there are many Japanese or even Indonesian made shoes/ boots, not much is mentioned/ shown about the quality of "Made-in-China" boots which I believe it provides a strong px to quality ratio. Workmanship, IMO, is not bad too comparing with those Japan-made boots such as White Kloud or Clinch or Rolling Dub Trio.

    Costs-wise it is not cheap to me, I had ordered a total of 5 boots, 3 are done (the other 2 are orange & 2 tone Grey-blue - not yet) , the total costs to me is near to almost 3 pairs of White's. enjoy.

    Wow, the cap toe and last looks almost identical to White's. Who are these made by?

    I meant a specific name, I understand that the boots were made by a Chinese maker, I just want to know which one.

    Sorry, not a fan. Look like clown shoes to me, the eyelets especially don't help.

    Agreed. The color combinations are over the top... too loud for me. But the workmanship seems decent. Do you have any other little pig project to share?
