What do you think? I'd love to get a pair of Playboy's chukkas but they're a little expensive, so this is the cheaper alternative, a new spanish brand named The Seeker.

They pop a crepe sole under a playboy sole?

Very fast, Wayne & you're right, it's an odd detail, think I'll go down to the store and see them in the flesh

Clarks do something similar and without the "odd" looking sole:

With the seekers, as I scrolled down I was seeing a beautiful pair of boots. Then that abomination of a sole. What were they thinking of ?.

This is a pet hate of mine when designers take a classic and decide that it needs a twist, and that they have the vision and style to pull it off.

Classics are classics for a reason and these add ons are invariably awful.

Now I'll take a sedative and go to bed.

they were briefly discussed previously in the thread but i dont think anyone had first hand experience. I saw them in a GQ feature, and they have a london flagship store so I would imagine it isn't complete crap... but only one way to find out!

Steve, thanks for the tip, Stuarts didn't have my size (british 6, eur 39), but I've found them, even cheaper, in the Clarks website. I've seen the Delicious Junction boots too (thanx, Cord), but the Clarks ones have a stronger resemblance to  the Playboys, not just in the sole but in the 2 eyelets or the whole silhouette of the boot.
