Cosign on Bostons. May need to look at the sheepskin lined ones. Are they a GR? Just seen Kith is doing a release of them so wants sure?

I tried Bostons but they're too much like a shoe to wear round the house

Def go for Zurich’s.

The collab with universal works is pretty clean, can sometimes find them floating around eBay for a decent price.

Thanks Fukers for all the suggestions.

I know that no one will see them when I'm on a Teams call but I just can't do clogs. Sandals seem like a more acceptable solution… just not Kyotos.

Unsure which to keep, ACGs or Salomons…. maybe both?



They're very different but in some ways similar hence indecision

Are you familiar with the brand Golden Bear? They are supposed to be a heritage brand and stuff made locally in San Francisco. Just wondered what the quality will be like ..

I have this jacket in brown and I love it. I got it from The Bureau probably six years ago. Would definitely recommend.

Edit - just posted a WAYWT with it
