    well of course the MA+s are better, just no argument about that...

    those vaz boots look alright to me as well. but who is this vaz rajan fellow?
    don't think i've ever heard of him before, but he's copying the whole aesthetic without actually being a part of it. meh.

    BTW Mr. Sinned, we need better photos of those great looking boots. Too much nuance in the color and texture to be left for dead on your dark couch and no natural lighting. :D

    because they're good?

    to be frank, i cannot possibly judge the quality of his boots without actually handling them - they look alright

    what im saying is that his boots and jackets look almost identical in design to the more established brands.

    How much difference can there possibly be? Just about everything has been done, and new and radical designs are often mocked, and rightfully so because they look ridiculous. CDiem/Augusta/Marsell/etc. etc., for the most part, make classic boots, in classic shapes and proportions, with new age distressing/technique/shaping. The construction on the well made boots is centuries old, and let me tell you - these guys are charging up the ass for it.

    Good to know

    moo will do in a few hours


    There doesnt need to be a Vaz at Cdiem for the boot to be good! I actually was surprised with the quality. I handled augusta and ma+ and it seems to be up to par... those were 1200 new btw
