    Wow that's the first moc boot that I've liked, nice job! As much as I want the daltons, I have a pair of wingtip boots (although way lower tier - the sebago hamiltons) so I'm hoping to get a pair of the Wolverines myself. I don't wear suits enough to justify the dress-boot Daltons simply on those grounds and I'd like a pair of plain-toe boots that'll last me forever and can be worn anywhere and at any time(Wolverines). I know wingtips are more casual but I'm in my early 20s and in grad school, so everything already looks 'dressed up.'


    I'll hopefully eventually have both though

    this whole boots thing is generally confounding me. i want a pair of boots, bad, i just cant figure out what to get. main usage would be jeans/chinos in the fall. would i wear a dress boot with a suit? probably not - i have a couple pairs of dress shoes I think I would grab instead. But i like a dress-ier looking boot, without it being a dress boot. Make sense? Like something nice to wear on friday night in the city.


    The wolverine seems like the lead candidate - i love its look. Dalton looks a little too fussy for me to wear with jeans. I dunno!!!! Then I want something truly rugged like the LL bean katahdin or some moc styled boot like the Frye Walter

    @zerostyle

    This is something I've been struggling with in regards to dress boots as well. I mean, I love the look of Daltons, but I just don't really understand what niche they would fill (i.e. not sure I could justify buying them unless I already had tons of shoes)

    @zerostyle - In my case, I opted for the Dalton boots over a pair of regular AE oxfords because I like to have a fairly small break on my pants, but didn't want to look like I was flooding. With boots, the pants drape nicely over the top.

    @lionel: I can understand that, but then I don't get why people wouldn't just buy the regular shoe version? There's really not much of a difference and the shoes seem more versatile.

    Get the Daltons; like Juan said, I've worn them with jeans, trousers, suits, and everything else and they look great with everything.

    @zerostyle you presuppose that boots are necessarily rugged. Think of the daltons as high-top dress shoes.

    Maybe it's just me, but the idea of boots with leather soles is just kind of silly. If you're going to buy something more rugged, you should really get a dainite or commando sole on them.

    As stated above, they are totally different. I have the AE Dalton in Chocolate and I've worn it with everything from Jeans to a Suit. It's a very versatile boot and it's very well made. The wolverine is a casual boot and I would only wear it with Jeans, Cords or rugged Chinos. I have no experience with the Wolverine, so I can't comment on the quality of it. If I was only getting one of those two, I would choose the Dalton because it's more versatile.

    Get 'em both.

    Seriously though, I have the AE Bayfields, and I've been eyeing the Wolverines, just because I think the Wolverines would work better with jeans. The Bayfields (similar to the Daltons) work with jeans, but they're formal enough that I occasionally wear them with a navy suit.

    They are very different boots for very different purposes. I have AE Daltons in walnut and Red Wing Iron Rangers (to fill the rugged category). I wear them both a lot in the fall/winter. I really enjoy boots. The Daltons are definitely more eye-catching, which is good or bad depending on your opinions.

    Not that I'm in the market for either necessarily, but maybe something I save up for in the future, What do you guys think, especially those who have invested in a pair. Thanks
