    Not sure but probably 6 months? I only wear casual shoes on the weekends (bals primarily on weekdays) and I have a fair amount of shoes so maybe I get to wear them 1-2x/month? I do try to take care of my shoes (e.g., put trees after wearing).

    Compliments should go to shell since that is really the reason the creasing is minimal. :D

    Here's a question for you guys, and before I get flamed I'm really trying to understand, what's so great about chukkas?

    I've never seen one in person and I guess I just don't see what makes them desirable? Do they wear differently or something? Please enlighten me!

    Chukkas are classic ankle boots. They can be casual (unlined suede) or formal (#8 shell). Other than the Chukka vs. Chelsea thread, I haven't seen anyone pumping up the chukka boot.

    I personally just like the way they sit with jeans and chinos. They're a nice casual middle ground between full on boots and bluchers. The lines are very clean and simple and they still look masculine, whereas I feel a lot of bluchers look sort of like "schoolboy" shoes.

    Also, chukkas make nice all-weather shoes because their more rugged looks accommodate soles other than leather well.

    Doesn't look quite right for an Indy. Maybe some other type of mocc toe.

    Received my Cap Toe boots from TSM today. I ordered a pair of the black ones, but got a pair of the color 8. The box even says they're the black ones. My first impression out of the box was, "These look really similar to color 8's."

    At first I was like :fu:
    But then I was like :inlove:

    Someone out there has a pair of black ones in place of color 8's...

    Very nice! How much did you pay? Did you happen to catch them on sale?
