    Your Favorite Chukka Boots and Why

    I’m looking for chukka guidance/input. Thanks!

    If you can afford to shop at a place with a philosophy, check out this startup made in US small shoe maker. If you email, he answers personally. I don't wear Chukka boots often, but this is my next pair.

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

      I have a pair of black brooks Brothers Peal and Company cavalry chukkas on Dainite soles. They are my winter travel/dress boots and wear well with anything from elevated denim to charcoal suits. They are very close in style to Crockett and Jones Tetburys, but are made (I think) by Alfred Sargent.

        AE Dundee 2.0. I like them because I rarely wear boots, and they were only $150.00.

          Massdrop x Allen Edmonds chukkas. The suede is unlined and buttery smooth. Sleek and comfortable. https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-x-alle...ed-chukka-boot

            I keep it budget friendly with the Clarks version of them. The comfort isn't anything to write home about but they've held up pretty well for the past few years.

              My only pair of chukka boots are a pair of Thursday Boot Company Scouts in dark olive suede. I really like the look of them and they are pretty comfortable.

              The suede is nice and the burnish toe gives it a great look with jeans.

              One boot is starting to show the seam between the sole and boot on one side. I'm not sure if it the beginning of a separation of if I scratched it somehow. I'm sure i could render it unnoticeable with a little edge dressing or polish.

              For the $149 I paid I feel they are a decent boot.

                Nordstrom 1901 chocolate suede, https://www.nordstromrack.com/shop/p...0BROWN%20SUEDE. Like the Loake Kempton but cheaper, and very durable so far. A pair of dark brown chukkas is amazingly useful--see https://putthison.com/a-suggestion-f...pair-of-shoes/

                  I’m not bold enough for a suede shoe, so I went leather. Got the Cole Haan Colton for a little under a hundred bucks. They are supposed to be ‘storm-welted’ so that they are water proof. Good enough for my sloshy walk to work. I like the rubber on the bottom which gives some more grip. I’ve enjoyed them, but the style isn’t comfortable, for me, for everyday wear.

                    I like the simple yet elegant design of Paul Evans though they are pricey.

                      I love my AE x MD chukkas. Love 'em enough I bought them three times (sand, chocolate, navy). That being said it's also pretty well-known I'm less a fan of the "new" version of Massdrop known simply as "DROP".

                        Yes, aren't you the one who got a really poorly made pair of Chukka boots from Drop?

                        Or was it someone else? Somebody posted on the forum about some that were just awful--I would have have been disappointed if they were seconds.

                        And the best they could get was about a 15% credit.

                          Yep that was me. Part of what left the bad taste in my mouth about the purveyor. There was a literal chunk of the nap of the suede missing on one toe, as if someone had literally scooped it off the leather with a spoon.

                          And the condition of refund was returning the shoes to DROP. (the rest of the refund would be a "store credit"...because nothing makes me want to continue doing business with a company like customer service that makes the Zetas look attractive)

                          Thankfully a local cobbler was able to make them look like nothing had ever been wrong, and I enjoy the hell out of them now.

                            Just to add, I wasn't really trying to turn this into a "bash DROP" kind of thread. Yes, my experience was negative. Others have had a good one with them. They've been featured on the main site numerous times for offering really good deals on a lot of kit.

                            Just good to know that, as with all things retail, everything doesn't always come up Milhouse.

                              I use these Danner Chukkas for most of the fall/winter/spring. Really comfy and great caramel color on the nubuck.
