    Bleh. They look like cheap. Like expensive Clark's - same shape and stitching. Personally I also hate crepe soles. I'd avoid. There are better desert boots / ankle boots / chukkas out there for $160.
    That's interesting because I wasn't really feeling the soles on them either. Any recommendations on other inexpensive ones?

    Those NDC's are nice! What did you have done to them?

    Thanks. I treated them to a custom insole since they run noticeably bigger than my other NDCs in the same size and were anything but comfortable when I got them a while ago. Especially the heel slipping annoyed the heck out of me...

    All's well that ends well. =)

    It seems like NDC sizing is all over the place. I have some suede loafers and they are really narrow, but the length is right.

    Still looking for alternatives to JV Six O Sixes I've seen a lot of stuff by Moma, N.D.C. etc but it's all been suede or black leather, which I'm not interested in. Really looking for that hand made look + medium height shaft in dark brown leather. Any ideas? I kinda like these Superdrys, but they look a little too tall: [​IMG]

    I thought about those before. Can I wear them with the top open + my jeans tucked into them?

    I think you could with the W+H moreso than the Wolverine's

    (I need to pick up a pair of brown W+H's, I need a distressed brown boot in my life)

    btw: no hate but those Superdry's are fug (so is everything I've ever seen by them fwiw)

    only with the Wings+Horns.

    Honestly though Gray Suede is your best option IMO especially if you're planning to tuck.

    Anyway Fuji is repping those All Saints boots so maybe you should check them out.

    Is that a real dog, Moo? (0)

    I wouldn't let my dogs anywhere near my shoes. Or anything I value for that matter. Untrained German shepherds. :/
