Weaver Moccasin Wallabees

Recommended Posts

Are any of you familiar with Weaver Moccasin, especially any of you in Japan? you can find them online on several japanese sites, and they're made in the E.U., which makes me wonder if there's any link to anyone formerly associated with Padmore & Barnes (from Republic of Ireland, in the E.U.):

they don't look quite as legit as P&B's, but they're cool nonetheless, and the closest thing going to the classics. The classic Weaver is one of the many styles they do (including many weird Wallabee-influenced hybrids, which you can see if you do a search on www.yahoo.co.jp), check it:

Good find, my friend. I can't help you with the info you are looking for - but I like the look of these shoes, nonetheless.

I especially like the profile - even though P&Bs thicker crepe sole is part of what makes them so great, I do like the slightly lower profile of these. And the uppers looks pretty true to the OGs.

I'm also interested in hearing more info about these - though, for 27,000, you'd probably be better of picking up a pair of deadstock P&Bs on yahoo. I'm going to keep my eye on these and seriously consider them if I can't find a pair of suede P&B weaver boots in my size.

Thanks R&S, good post.

i had 2 pairs of low-top weavers back in the day, in the chesnut suede, and the brown cordovan-like leather. the first thing i noticed was that the crepe was softer than the wallabee oxfords. like crazy soft. they ware mad comfy too. damn i miss them. ive never had a pair from p&b, and i dont care. clarks still make the illest joints. and if you ever buy a pair without the crepe sole, get a pair of air-movers. they are just as comfy as they are SEEMINGLY ugly. i think they are fly. damn i miss them

Visit the Clarks website (or oipolloi/hanon) to name a few, they have 'em in Ebony and Beige suede and have just released a leather pair. Padmore and Barnes used to make Clarks under license in Ireland. Sadly all Clarks are now made in Asia. The P&Bs Clarks were all hand made, hence the quality. They basically set it up like a cottage industry, peeps in Ireland would make them by hand in their homes and then send back to Clarks. Pretty good idea if you ask me.

I have an ebony pair and they are amazing. No doubt the quality would be better if they were Padmore and Barnes, but P&Bs don't make any shoes anymore, they just sell really crappy ones.

Wallabees/Weavers and Plaintoes are the best shoes out there in my opinion. They're like wearing your slippers, and you can move around in relative silence thanks to the crepe soles.

Anyone familiar with how the Clarks Weavers fit? Same as their Desert Boots? Had to size down one whole size for their DBs. Should I do the same with Weavers?

copped a pair of the weaver 'duck' boots and have to admit they feel pretty legit the shape may be a little off but the waxed leather is nice and thick

they are proper moccasin construction ie: like p&b's I hesitantly say they may even be slightly better quality

if your jonesing for a pair of weaver boots then these are definitely worth the cash

now to find some suedes...

any verdict on the clarks original weaver moc vs. weaver moccasins? it looks like the clarks OG are on P&B lasts.. i'm not really sure how they swung that.

I haven't handles the new clarks but the older pair I have match up pretty well to the weaver moccasin

The 'duckling' boots were. I'm pretty sure the 'waterbirds' only went up on Friday. Unless it is a re-stock. Still, they sold quickly.

Do the Duckling boots fit the same as their Clarks equivalents? I'm a 9 in Clarks but they are known for fitting big...

Cheers,
