They claim made in LA. At 200 its worth a try.
Kind of reminds me of the W+HxDayton Service boots
looks like buffalo not horse
'Culana Cavallo' i.e. horse leather (the library) but yes it does not look like it Also they look very different ( leather ,heel etc) then the ones Uz posted.
i know that chick
Can anyone weigh in on the quality of MA+? Particularly the one piece derbies? At the price point, I'll assume that the quality is quite high, but anyone have any experience after years of wear?
Just looking for some feedback before investing $1K+ in shoes.
^ Quality is great. Personally, i feel MA+ goods are just marked up way too high. I read somewhere that their current season's linen/cotton tee is priced at around 1k. Not a big fan of his footwear. 1k for his derbies sounds ok given the retail would be twice that figure.
Genarally speaking, years of wear is dependant on many factors. One might wear it twice a week while the other might beat the hell out it wearing it daily. Eventually, the one worn sparingly in rotation might still hold its shape pretty well while the frequently used pair might require resoling(assuming no vibram is attached) etc. Climate, apart from lifestyle, does affect its wear to a certain degree.
I have the one-piece derbies. If you're thinking about that pair from SZ, go for it. That's a great price given what it was going for when first released.
I like everything about the one-piece derbies. The leather is soft yet it doesn't feel cheap. The leather is of high quality - substantial and feels solid to the touch. Overtime, it will mold to your feet. there is some evidence of fades though out over time which give it a nice patina of black/brown/dark grey.

Saw those LEU boots a while back. Any details on those suckers?
what's up with the heels on those
those LeU look absolutely horrid.
Seriously thinking about ordering these in the brownish oiled culatta color/leather
What's one more pair...
Brown boots? Eck, noooooooooooooooooo.
