  • Frye Walter replacement

    I posted this elsewhere and was advised to come over here. I originally saw the Frye's here and fell in love. I've dedicated $1k to adding to my wardrobe and was planning an Indochino Essential Navy suit, their longer trench in olive and a pair of boots that can be dressed up or down (my brown oxfords look a bit out of place with cords).

    The boots I ordered got cancelled. So much for 'In Stock.' I had a coupon code that made them nearly a hundred bucks off and now I'm not so willing to pay full retail.
    These are the Walters: http://goo.gl/5EuWF

    The other contenders (I really want USA made and a welted wooden sole):
    http://goo.gl/jQDDj - Frye Arkansas Brogue
    http://goo.gl/14ViS - Frye James
    http://goo.gl/0PEbF - Danner Jack 5" (not US made)
    http://goo.gl/9xdtc - Redwing Beckman
    http://goo.gl/5EVDm - Chippewa Sundance
    http://goo.gl/Oj3Ce - AE Dalton

    Thoughts? I want something that can dress up grey chinos or brown cords and dress down a navy suit possibly.

    Thanks for all advice!

    Hands down, go with the Dalton's in chocolate brown. I've had mine for 10 months now and absolutely love them!

      I would probably also say the Dalton's, especially if you want to wear them with a suit (even to dress it down). Personally, if think that is one of your applications, I would immediately scratch off any of the ones with the treaded rubber soles.

        I will also put a word in for the Daltons, I got a pair last month and couldn't be happier.

          One more vote for the Daltons. I have them in Cholocate and I love them.

            Unanimous support! The Daltons are where I ended up landing as well - I've got an AE outlet about an hour from me so I'm going to stop by there and see what I can find.

            Thanks!

              I completely agree with Mike
