Comparing shoe brands is often a waste of time when done theoretically. One can only know which brand they prefer when they personally try each brand. They can of course then share their opinion but that opinion is nothing more than that. It is never a fact. Not even my opinion. It is always just an opinion.
I get asked a lot of times, ‘Compare these two brands’ and to be honest, it is my pet peeve to hear those words, especially when the brands are using the same grade of leather and construction, and the only thing that separates them are personal opinions like fit, comfort, style, execution, etc. and maybe $50-$100 in price. Or when I get asked to compare a $1600 English-made shoe with a $1250 Chinese-made shoe. There is no one better than the other. It is only which one you prefer. Saying one has cleaner finishing is an opinion and really means nothing in the end. It is all mantlepiece ideology. Not fit for the realm of the reality of wearing the shoes.
I find that people often overthink buying a product, trying to do so much research comparing shoe brands against each other when in the end it is all personal opinion and you can never gain that until you try said product. And that goes for anything really. Sure, knowing my opinion might help you, but I share it in all of the videos I make. So please watch them until the end and you will be well-equipped to make an informed idea on which brand to try based on the opinions presented.
Buy shoes that you like the look of or from brands that give you good service. Try a few different brands and then make up your mind on which you prefer.
