Perfect unlined chukka for the price!
Purchased the olive green, awesome dark shade of green. Darker then the online picture portrays. Which is perfect. Almost like a moss green color rather than a lighter shade. More subtle and can be worn casually with denim.
The 511 last is my most comfortable last from AE. It’s also the last that reminded me the harsh reality. My feel just aren’t built for other lasts. 65, 7 etc. maybe one day a strand/Macneil will be made in 511 lol.
With that said. A few reviews here had me skeptical on sizing regarding this shoe being that it’s unlined. Am glad that I went with my own intuition in ordering what I know.
If you’re familiar with The Allen Edmonds 511 last you know what to expect sizing wise. They will fit TTS according to that last. I Ordered the chukka in a 8.5 D. The Fit fit exactly the same as my 8.5 D Dalton, Sullivan Street,Wilbert, longbranch, Leeds.
Weight wise these things feel like You’re wearing feathers. Next to nothing. Being unlined they’re extremely comfortable for daily wear as your feet swell the soft suede leather will expand/stretch to accommodate slightly with no issue.
I plan on ordering the Snuff next go around.
Would recommend to a friend.
