    I didnt see any postings of mark nason shoes/boots. whats everyone's take on this style vs. the boots that have been posted already? im torn between the classic look and trendy.

    Mark Nason produces, imo, the ugliest shoes and boots in the entire world, bar none. I really don't know if I've ever seen shoes/boots I despise as much as some of Mark Nason's creations. I think his general idea for boot making is similar to Christian Audigier shirt making, which is to basically put as much stupid, useless, over-the-top shit on an item as possible. The square toe, horrible distressing, crosses everywhere turn me off completely. That is pretty much everything I do NOT want in a shoe, all combined in one.

    Quality wise, I have no idea.

    Buy them if you like them, as you are the one who has to wear them, I'm just saying, you would never catch me in a pair.

    i think it depends on the hem or how much stacking you got on the bottom. it doesn't look chunky at all to me either my denim's hem covers most of or the stacking at the bottom hides it.

    edit: i just notice it only looks really chunky from the side when i wear them unless my hem is covering it.

    I posted this in the APC thread but maybe you guys can help out..

    Does anyone know where I can buy APC boots online? Size 45? the official website lists them as sold out.

    Or something in a similar look

    Just wondering what you consider clunky and awkward I guess? If you're referencing the Doc Martin army, then I'd agree with you. The LL Bean Engineer boots a while back then not so much.

    Ya get me?


    I'd like to know if these are chunky and awkward by his standards as well.

    My recent pick up,

    I also wear Red Wing 1907s which I know are kind of chunky and RW 1909s and Alden 405s which I think are not as much. But if I'm wearing a boot I prefer it have some substance. I don't care for PS for the very same reason Kaiser probably likes them; I find they're too dramatically sleek for my tastes.

    Beautiful boots. Are those Stows? What about the Grensons? Comfortable?

    i really like these rag & bone boots, but i've never seen them in person, so it makes it hard to pull the trigger.

    onion,
    I do agree they do go over the top with the studs. I guess what im trying to compare with the shoe postings here is not necessarily mark nason but that type of style (not the studs and such but more of the shape of the shoe)- Aldo, etc.

    Yeah, the top ones are Stows. The Grensons have kind of worn in to be one of my most comfortable actually. It's not really visible in the photo but they're also full on commando soles which makes them rather nice rugged boots for stomping about.

    A lot of great boots on this thread, those Grensons look terrific. I picked up a pair of Iron Rangers over Christmas, I'll post pics in a month or two when they're fully worn in.

    You could get a pair of Paul Smiths for that price (paulsmith.co.uk and milanclothing.com have them on sale). Or for more of a beefy type of a boot you could look at Frye (Brando?).

    Yeah, I have 2 pairs of PS shoes. I like some of their boots, but they don't have my sizes currently.

    Red Wings are also just a touch away from being nice. I like those posted above, but something about them keeps me away from purchasing them. I think it's the toe area and the color lacks life, to me.

    I'll check out Frye.

    Really nice patina on that boot. What do you do or not do as far as maintenance and polishing?
