My crepe soles are holding up great. some of the stitching is wearing through, but it doesn't seem to affect them much.

Here's something I found a bit interesting.

The local Zara, in Manila, is stocking some decent looking tasseled moccasins, which aren't a tall bad, for the price they're selling at. Suede and Nubuck, they come in two colors.

A bit busy for my tastes and I'm not sure about the boat sole....

Hey, does anyone around here own the Russell Moccasin hikers and actually use them for hiking?

I just got my first Russells (Cavalier in french veal from the seconds list!) and the quality is kind of blowing my mind....

Interesting take on the classic Redwing style. Though I can't say I'm fond of it. Moccasin style on a work boot just doesn't look right. That's like driving a hybrid Hummer...

so i'd gotten a pair of the red wing wabasha chukkas over the summer:

redwingwabasashachukka.jpg

as it was hot as all get out, i never really wore them. started rocking them about a month or so ago, and within a week i was already disappointed in them. the stitching on the front of one of the shoes @ the toe started to come undone. the parts of the toe where the pieces of leather come together started to fray, for lack of a better word. the leather lining along the ankle on the inside of the boot came unglued and rubbed against my ankles. also, due to the rough-out leather it was impossible to water/weather proof them without making them look like crap. just sent them back to the website i got them from with a kindly worded email regarding what i see as the shoddy craftsmanship on them and asking for a refund. no way a pair of boots that cost that much, made by a company like red wing should be in such shitty shape with very little hard wear with in such a short amount of time.

i just got these in the mail today:

russell moccasin art carter chukkas, bnib from an ebay seller for a good price. i just put them on and i can already say that they shit all over the bloated rotting corpse of the wabashas. they fit great and will hopefully last me for a very long time.

just a little op-ed/rant/psa from Lendo to my sufu people.

fit pic when i get back from walking the dogs.

:D

I personally don't like the sole of those russel moc's, btu they look damn good.

It's weird to hear about that problem too...

i know, i was really surprised. i think that the regular leather ones would probably hold up better.

fwiw, the wabashas are great looking and were comfortable until i started having "issues" with them. maybe i just got the dud of the bunch or something.

I'm wondering if anyone here has heard of HS Trask Gallatin Boots...

Picture1-5.png

They look pretty interesting and they're actually at Urbanoutfitters. This is what they say about them:

"Originating in Montana, Trask boots are hand stitched and created with supple yet durable bison leather. Welted toe; crepe rubber midsole and sole; leather rope laces; deer skin lining. Finished with an embossed logo at the side."

you must've picked up a dud... i got the 5-hole suede version of these from jcrew and they've been great so far. i just need to get them waterproofed ASAP.

I had some Trask boots last year. I can vouch for the quality, but the insole and overall comfortability could be better.

Anyone got pictures of a worn in Arrow Moc

my Arrow Canoe Mocs. I've had them for 5 months. They're comfy. Laces are a mess in this picture though.

In a similar light to the Clark’s Original Weaver, Weaver Moccasin create their own similarily styled shoe. The most notable differences include a center seam down the middle of the suede upper as well as waterproof characteristics. The layered crepe sole offers a bit of contrast with the uppers as well as featuring a goatskin lining. Available now at Oi Polloi.
