    Alfred Sargent Suede Boots

    Hello!

    Anybody know anything about these boots?

    https://www.amazon.com/Alfred-Sargen.../dp/B0751X1919

    They're on a good sale, and I'm interested in some dark brown suede boots for the winter. But I can't tell if these are good year welted, if the suede is high-quality, etc.

    Honestly I was thinking about buying the Herring Campdens for warmer weather and the Herring Gosforths for the winter and making them a part of my regular wear (I also wear Clarks desert boots nonstop in the summer). So I'm a fan of the chukka boot, but I think I want the higher boot shaft of something like the above boots to help keep me warmer in the winter.

    All opinions are also welcome!

    Thanks!

    I couldn’t imagine Alfred Sargent not being GYW. I would say that they are at least at the level of Allen Edmonds if not a rung above. I don’t own a pair of Alfred Sargent, but I do own a pair of Wildsmith (which I understand had multiple connections to AS). They used to be considered a “budget” shoe compared to Crockett and Jones. I think their quality has even improved in the past few years, from what I have read.

    BTW, I think those are very nice looking boots.

    These are going to be higher end than those herrings you were considering. AS shoes range from high 300s to 500s, maybe more, I haven't followed them much lately. They're a step up from Allen Edmonds, I'd say on par w/ Carmina with the major caveat being I have not had experience w/ AS suede whereas Carmina suede is some of the very best at any price range, in my opinion. Great deal and a good looking boot - I would buy!

    I'd agree with what has been said above me with one caveat. AS are known to have a fairly high instep on their lasts although with boots, it may not matter much.

    Thanks guys! I bought em! Ill let you know how they go.

    I feel like I was in the same boat you are, if they're alfred sargent they should be high quality. My concern was that alfred sargent "for j lindberg" was somehow worse. Im fine with them not being $700 boots etc haha just wanted to make sure there's nothing fishy going on
