What if I could offer you a timeless, one-of-a-kind chukka (a Lean Wardrobe essential) from Allen Edmonds, an incredible American brand with a storied history, that only a handful of people in the world would have?

And what if you could have it for less than what you’d spend buying one of their existing chukka models in stores right now?

Would you be in?!

I know I would.

A one-of-a-kind model

Gents, this is an Allen Edmonds chukka like you’ve never seen, because you literally have never seen this before. Not online, not in stores, not anywhere.

The Must-Have, Versatile Chukka To Add To Your Wardrobe Today

“How do I get my hands on this beauty?” Right here.

You know why? Because it’s a completely new model made from a combination of the best parts of three different Allen Edmonds boots: the Amok, the Mojave, and the Dundee.

This fully custom chukka, made in collaboration with Allen Edmonds and StyleForum, is available only to you and the men’s style community at Massdrop.

SHUT UP AND LET ME BUY THEM ALREADY!

What’s Massdrop?

Massdrop is a members-only site (free to sign up) that lets you participate in group buys for awesome products. Not just menswear, either; there are great products from writing instruments to photography and everything in between.

The more folks that join a drop, the lower the price goes down for everyone in the group.

The built-in community is another cool aspect. You can discuss products with other members, and coolest of all, members can set up voting polls for products they would like to see group buys for.

If a product in your poll gets a lot of votes, Massdrop will reach out to the vendor and try to coordinate a group buy on the site, just like with these Allen Edmonds chukkas.

Here’s exactly what you need to know

Click here, and if you’re not a signed-in member, you will be asked to sign up. It’s free to do so, and you can register with your email, Facebook, or Twitter.

At checkout, you’ll have your choice of size and width. You’ll also have your choice of suede color: Sand, Snuff, or Chocolate. The one you see in this article’s photos is Snuff.

This drop is limited to 500 units.(Only 100 units of the Chocolate colorway are available.)

There are hundreds of thousands who visit this site every month, not including the hundreds of thousands who visit Styleforum and Massdrop. You should grab yourself a pair quickly.

Personal style is all in the details…

If you need to add a dressier chukka to your lean wardrobe this winter, I’d definitely spring for this.

Also works for casual outfits too, of course.

The best way to curate your own personal style is to pay attention to the little details. This shoe is a great example. To outsiders, you’re wearing a regular ol’ chukka boot.

But to those in the know—including you—you’re wearing a limited-edition chukka from Allen Edmonds that only a handful of people in the world own.

And you’re getting it for a great price, much lower than it would ever sell at retail. How cool is that?

Participate in the drop today to get a pair of your very own.

    I always use your site when buying gifts for my husband. You do such a great job and have a nice clean style. However, I took your advice on this, got it and the deal, only to be alarmed at the fact that they wont ship it till February!!!!!! That is something to be considered when plugging such companies. Disappointed 🙁

    • Sorry about that. Sounds like you were part of the second run (after the first 500 were already sold). The first run shipped much sooner, I believe in early December, if I remember correctly. In any case, I’m sure he’ll love them when he gets them. 😉

        I know he will! You do such an amazing job. It really is so helpful to read your site and pick out surprises for him 🙂 Thanks!
