    Boot help

    I recently bought the BR Tanner lug sole Chelsea boot. I’d been looking for a lugged Chelsea forever, so I was pretty excited when I found it and for such a great price (paid ~$90). The boot is exactly what I wanted but it is too narrow. I went up a size but to no avail.

    I’m on the hunt again to find a lugged Chelsea. The ones I’ve found are like $400, are super clunky (looking at you, Blundstone), or have comically huge lugs. I like the AE Surrey and Tate but, while not out of the realm of possibility, would love to spend less than $240.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I think the AE Tate for $240 is probably about the best you are going to find. Have you tried shoebank?

      You might find Frye's Terra on sale someplace if you look around. Its retail price is $278. I picked up some other Frye chelsea boots on sale for $80 at Nordstrom Rack awhile back. They're nice for cheap boots.

      WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

        I'm a big fan of Frye, but the right ones. Those Terra's are "Polished Leather", aka bonded leather, aka junk that cracks and peels off. For almost 300 bucks that is ridiculous. I'd stick to real leather imo.

          Yes--I didn't look closely enough--I would stay away from polished leather as well. At least for anything over $100.

          Good catch.

            Thanks, it's a mistake I've made before even after I started buying better shoes. Luckily, I got them off ebay and didnt pay top dollar for them. I bought a pair of AE Waldens, a nice loafer, so I thought. Got them in and tried adding some conditioner and then polish to them, and it was like pouring water on a rain coat. They didnt take anything.

              Almost did the same thing with some AE shoes on Ebay. I did some research and discovered the issue with that model. Or maybe I posted on here and asked. I can't remember the model, but they don't make it anymore.
