    I've just recently began looking into finding some nice moc-toe boots for this fall/winter. I like the overall style of the Quoddy Maine Woodsman but would like to see some similar options. I looked through Yuketen's offerings and, while I absolutely love the upper, the soles are just too bulky. I know I can get them resoled, but I'd like to find some more options. Are there any other boot makers out there I should be looking at?

    I really want a pair of these, but won't pay retail. I keep finding other F + B shoes and boots on discount, but have yet to see these anywhere on sale.

    EDIT: Does the way the leather on top kinda flaps out like it does make them ever awkward to wear with your pants leg over them?


    lol. the most popular styles and colors of certain items don't really go on sale like the others. Like how regular paul smith starrs don't really go on sale but the seasonal colors/textures and stuff will. Unless you're talkinga bout supermarket/buy&sell and even then they're really rare on there and i rarely see them and if i do it's not really that much cheaper and sizing is a crapshoot. There's a reason most people just give in and pay retail

    I have had good luck finding deals on Ebay for new F + B's. Usually priced at a steal, but no luck with these. I guess you are right on the sales. [​IMG]

    Maybe I will just need to save up.

    It's only like an inch and a half or so, so basically, no.

    Barneys has it. As long as they still have the model, it will be in their annual sale, just wait until then.

    Slightly off-topic, but when is their annual sale?

    Dual zippers on boots, how peculiar.

    The aesthetic reminds me of Chronicles of Never, but I don't know if they have a style that looks exactly like that, and they probably have never made anything in that light of a color.

    Usually in May. That's a long time away.
