It looks like the other grey ones are wool, though. The material looks the same as the brown boiled wool boots from last year.

Some other stockists have to have bought this colorway. I can't see why they would pass on this to buy the blue/red ones... but so far I've had no luck finding anyone with these. I even emailed Sperry to ask if they could help (no reply).

Good news: Revolve has some of the Band of Outsiders chukkas, and for the cheapest I've seen anywhere - $200 (which comes down to $160 with the instyle09 code).

Bad news: only the black and grey flannel colorways.

For that price I've decided the grey flannels are a close enough substitute to the suede ones. Sperry actually did respond today to my email about that color but all they told me was that the whole collaboration was very limited and suggested to check Revolve and Eluxury

For anyone that owns any of the BoO chukkas, how do they size up? I normally wear a 10.5-11, but they only had 10.5's left online so I just copped those. What's good though?

The boots last year fit pretty TTS so I just got my usual size (10.5). I'll let you know how they fit when they show up but odds are you'll get yours before I get mine anyways if you are in the US ;)

If you figure this out you'd better PM me with detailed instructions...I've been wanting to try this for a while but didn't want to destroy a pair and never get laces back into them.:(

I honestly though it was just design on some of them, and didn't incorporate the actual lacing system into the wraparound of the design...:confused:

but i don't own any sperry's - they fit true to size? i'm a 9/9.5 in loafers/dunks respectively so i'm leaning towards a 9 but i'm still not sure. any help is appreciated

i wouldn't size down if you have wide feet or plan on wearing thicker socks.

So I just received my quoddy 4-eyelet ankle boots, with the boat shoe sole, chromexcel brownn colorway.

Do I need to pre-treat these with something before I wear them or am I good to go?

my roomate threw up inside my 3 year old topsiders, i refuse to put my bare skin against pukey leather, it was a good run.

edit:

In other news, i want some camp mocs. How are the bean ones? my friend has a pair that looks good but the toe looks mad square on the website. Is quoddy worth the dough? Cinnamon pebbled or chromexcel leather, which is better qualitywise?

ucs-ss2010-deck-shoes-front.jpg

UCS presents as part of their Spring/Summer 2010 Collection a Slip-On Deck Shoe. The shoe does not only come without laces and an elastic slip-on system, but the colors are also a little special – they offer the deck shoe in bright yellow and in metallic silver. We are not sure about the silver, but we definitely feel the yellow for Summer. The shoes will be available at Cueve from January 18th.

Detailed images of the UCS Deck Shoes follow after the jump.
