The Moccasin Thread

Recommended Posts

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

Summer is coming and I am thinking about a pair of Arrows.

Pics of worn versions? Particularly the difference between worn crepe soles and leather soles. I want to see how they have held up.

Thanks in advance

I'm looking into buying a pair of Quoddy's but I'm unfamiliar with the sizing. I wear size 8.5 Vans authentics (8-8.5 converse) and i'm looking into either the bluchers or the chukkas. what size should i get?

Maliseets look good until you actually get your foot in there.

got these yuketens for 50% off at holt renfrew in vancouver about a week ago, they had navy, red and tan, some sizes for all of them, all 50% off of 340. nobody seemed to be even looking so i would imagine they still have some. they also had the boat shoes in all those colors plus green.

I'm about to get LL Bean's ranger mocs, but I have problems with the sizing. I heard they run pretty narrow, should I go upsize or just let them stretch? I'm 8.5 vans, 8 in chucks. don't have access to try them on :(

Arrow moccasin boots. So far, my faves...

I know this is an old thread but where did you get these? i contacted Arrow the other day and they did not offer any color options when i asked.

Thank you for the ID and link, WM. Here's some more RM from Inventory Mag—the Sporting Clays look particularly good. Here's a pic:

I have heard that the Vibram 2060 sole on these wears down pretty fast. Does anyone have first-hand knowledge? Thanks!
