    Suede Chukkas

    I tried the dark brown 1901 ones from Nordstrom that Joe always recommends but found both the color and shape to be a little boring. The color was particularly disappointing - they must not make them anymore in the shade of brown from the picture he always posts online. Anyone have any suggestions for some nice looking brown suede chukkas (<$200)?

      I feel like it was around this time last year that I bought the AE chukka's on Massdrop then saw the Suit Supply chukka's for ~$75 on their outlet and have been very happy with both. I baby the AEs a little too much, but SS's have held up well with much more wear.

        I'm not gentle to my chocolate Massdrop X AE chukkas (just now getting back to the proper weather for the sand ones I also have) and they're still fantastic. I usually wear them for extended travel as they're easy on/off (precheck negates removal at federal fondle checkpoints) and feel like slippers.

        Been hoping they do another run, as I still need the snuff to complete the trifecta, but barring that, maybe check out shoebank.

          Florsheim Constable - A one-off 'let's see if people buy this' effort, I think, from Florsheim. Rubber-soled, Goodyear-welted (it doesn't say so on the product page, but the shoes come with a tag specifying that they are, and upon inspection, it's obvious that they indeed are) leather lined, suede upper. The chocolate color is particularly nice. They're on super-closeout, so the price is good, too.

          Keep in mind that they run LARGE. For example, I'm a 10 in New Balance, 10C in Johnston and Murphy, and 10B in Allen Edmonds. The size 9.5 of the Constable was too big. The 9 is good for me length-wise, but a little wide at the heels (not surprising given my narrow feet). Sizing-wise, if you're normal width, I'd say size down 1 from your typical shoe size. If you have wide-ish feet, size down 1/2.

          If, by the above formula, you end up needing a size 9 in chocolate suede Constables, PM me. They're sold out online, but I have an unworn, unused, still in box pair that I'm happy to sell.

          Good luck!

            Huckberry's Astorflex line is pretty good. I have a pair in dark khaki and dark chestnut.

              I second the Astorflex listed above. I used to wear Clarks desert boots but I found that after a few months they hurt my feet (after the crepe sole became a bit floppy). I've had the Astorflex (dark khaki) for about a year and the sole has held up much better.
