#1576 SeaVees Chukkas – when the boot doesn't fit

Photo: Fabric

They say you can tell a lot about a man by the shoes he wears. I rotate exclusively between Chucks and Authentics. Analyse that. Probably the most prominent reason for my choice of footwear (besides my affection for the aforementioned) is that I never find anything I like better. It's a rare day when a pair of shoes actually appeals. So I was particularly excited when I saw the honey brown SeaVees Chukka Boots (pictured above) at Fabric in the weekend. So excited, in fact, that I immediately requested to try them on. I have small feet, but no matter how hard I squeezed, those bad boys didn't fit. Turns out they were girls' shoes. Story of my life. Back to the drawing board, and to my trusty sneakers. Somebody awesome better buy those boots.

I LIKE YOU!

haha, I know the feeling man! Pointer shoes (the made in Portugal ones) are a very similar style. You check them.

You poor boys, I do feel sorry for your lack of shoe options. In Vietnam nothing fit and it's a b*tch!

I've got some Clarks DBs but they're just not the same!

Somebody should do a Clarks DB collab and design a 3 up laced pair. That would be my jam.

Jimmy said...

why no take you DB to a local shoe cobbler and get 2 extra eyelets punched in?

haha! I've got big feet, and the women's shoeas rarely fit because stores here don't have bigger sizes, so I always order mine online.
