Finding a brand you like that offers quality products at a reasonable price can be tough from time to time. While you like their style, the fit might not be for you. However, that is not the case with the San Francisco-based brand Sutro Footwear. We had the chance to test out three different pairs of shoes and boots. You’ll find a detail review and our thoughts below. Photography: TStoff for The Primary.
Lee Chukka Boot (Cherdon)
The Lee has quickly become one of our new favorite chukkas. They’re extremely comfortable thanks to the Goodyear welted sole and memory foam cushioned insole. And while they fit perfectly and easy on the feet, we love the premium leather used on the upper. It’s the perfect combination of look and feel that we’ll be wearing all-year long.
Larkin II Oxford (Redbrown)
Featuring a similar composition to the Lee, the Larkin II Oxford arrives just in time for Summertime celebrations and events. It’s dressy enough to be worn to a nice party with chinos or slacks, but not overly formal. We’ll have no trouble at all wearing it for long periods of time and not feeling bothered like other Oxfords we’ve owned. With these types of shoes, the attention to detail and craftsmanship is evident immediately.
Alder Boot (Honey)
Last but not least is the Alder Boot. We’re betting that the Alder is one of Sutro’s most popular styles and for good reason. There is nothing not to like about it and we’ve found it to get better with each wear. Often times you’ll find yourself fighting with these types of boots whether it is trying to slip your foot in or finishing up a day with sore foot. We found neither to be true and the Alder is begging to be worn on a regular basis. It has that perfect look to be paired with dark or light denim.
