Anyone have experience with Filson's boots or oxfords? They've crossed my radar at a good price. Seemed well-made in the store, and I like the cork insoles, but I'll let the experiences of the good gents here decide.
I've wondered this, as well. Yesterday, I went back to the store that had them on sale, only to find that the selection had dwindled. I snoozed and lost, as it were. Still, definitely something I'll consider for the future. Struck me as a really well-made shoe.I wonder if Filson makes their own footwear, or if they re-sell. I've located a store that sells Filson, but have yet to make the trip.
Actually, I think most of thier stuff is now made overseas, with the exception of some "flagship" high-end stuff (like most of the luggage, for example.) I have a few luggage items that they made in Seattle, and they are great. The imported stuff I cannot say.Are we talking Filson as in Filson of Seattle, of Tin Cloth fame? If so, bigspendur, they're not a retailer. For clothing, at least, the make almost all of their stuff (the factory is in the back of their flagship store). For luggage and footwear, though, that may not be the case.

Filson sells the insoles through their website. Thanks for your input on the loafers and LL Bean boots!
