    Just one word.

    Wow.

      They are individually hand made in England. They keep no stock and they have tons of options available. I own sneakers from several of the luxury brands and Crown Northampton is my favorite.

      I'm with you on the white soles. It's too much of a contrast for my taste.

        I was looking at the blue suede AE Nomad but I'm not a fan of the white sole.

        As to the explanation you gave to your wife: How was it received?

        I wonder if got a pair of the AE Daltons in dark chili if I could use a similar explanation with my wife as my existing pair are tan so really they are totally different and of course both absolutely necessary.
        As to the Nomad Chukka boot--you probably noticed that I have them. I'm normally not a fan of white soles either, but they are pretty thin, more off-white than white, and do not stick out much on the brown shoes. That said, I wouldn't wear them with anything more formal than jeans and chinos.

        As far as my wife--That was about the end of the conversation, after she reminded me that I won't have a paycheck for a while. First, probably because she had a couple of pairs of boots on the way from someplace. Second, probably because she has five times more shoes than I do. Third, we keep separate accounts as well as a joint account and stuff like this comes from my separate account.
        WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

        • I'm not usually a sneaker guy, but I like these quite a bit. I'd wear them for sure. I'm going to go look for some now.

            The are not cheap, but they refund the VAT. Also there is a free shipping code that I have used.

            • Allen Edmonds Benton with robot socks. Hopefully I'll be spared during the uprising.

                  Nice work!!! Of course, none of our wives have two (or more) pairs of the same shoe or color

                          This post made me pull my University from my culling if the shoe collection. I really do love a U-Wing design, and those look spectacular! Mine are a simple Chili but the love may be rekindled. My heart thanks you, but my wallet and closet do not.

                                What is the colour of those boots?
