Adventures with Phil Chukka
Don't be fooled by the Phil Chukka's classic and casual silhouette. Waterproof-grade leathers and a Peak-to-Pavement™ outsole give this workplace-ready chukka shoe a rugged, weather-resistant edge.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Patrick from Great styling and construction. Comfort just ok. I purchased these to replace my Pilots that lasted for years. I wanted something more everyday that I could wear to work or out on the weekends. Firstly I love how these look. The style is spot on and the light grey leather is exactly the color and feel I was looking for. After wearing them for a while my only issue is that they are not very comfortable. The pilots were more padded whereas these are just a thin leather layer. After a few hours they start to rub and feel uncomfortable. With Forsake I expected it to be a shoe I could wear all day long but sadly that’s not the case. I still wear them a few times a week just not for that long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Incredibly Unfcomfortable I must preface with I've had nothing but great interaction with Forsake. Their customer service is top notch. BUT, I must be missing something. These are quite possibly the most uncomfortable pair of shoes I've ever purchased. I've tried multiple insole replacements to no avail. I keep wearing them hoping maybe they just need to be broken in, but so far I'm just left with sore feet and blisters on my heel. They run narrow in odd places, and are strangely stiff in others. They look incredible, made of high quality material, and definitely seem like they should be comfortable, but that's not the case for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by nhmtns from Generally Happy with These Shoes The longer I own these, the more I like them. Right out of the box, they were a bit stiff and dug into my ankle bone because of their mid height. I used some leather protector, which softened up the leather and made them more comfortable. Tying them looser also helped them feel better, especially since they are fairly narrow. They are surprisingly lightweight shoes. Style wise, they are pretty slick. I wear them to work, but they're also great for kicking around on weekends. I even ride my bike around town with them. The leather protector I used darkened the brown a little, which I like better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buck from Great travel shoe Bought these for a ten day trip to Italy because I wanted (hopefully) comfortable shoes that didn’t look like hiking shoes or those hideous walking shoes you see in the mall. They paid off well. Broke them in at home and then walked on average about seven miles a day on the trip and they were pretty darn comfortable until getting close to mile seven or so, when my heels would start to complain. A little more cushion at the heel would be nice but I could probably fix that with inserts. Also, walked around Rome in the rain for a good 20 or 30 minutes and these held up well. Not sure if they’d take an hour in a torrential downpour but they worked for me. All in all, very happy with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by desauce from Too narrow for me but amazing otherwise I was so excited when I can home from work and my shoes were waiting for me at my doorstep. I immediately opened them up to try them on only to find out that they are too narrow for my feet. I will unfortunately be returning them for a refund. I hope in the future they decide to offer a wide option. Until then I'll have to pass on these awesome shoes. I am still rating these shoes a 5 because I think people without wide feet will love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tyler from Tough shoe I’m tough on shoes. I’m a Natural Resources manager and spend lots of time in the field. Often I go from office to field and forget my boots but these guys do the job of sticking to the ground and keeping my feet sturdy. They are kinda flat like cons or vans but I like that. I’ve beat the heck out of them and they’re dirty but the stitches are solid as the soles strong. I’m on the website to order another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Honediggs from Great Casual Shoe!! I am a big fan of Forsakes but have sometimes found that their shoes are meant for the mountains and middy parking lots. This shoe brings the brand I like with a style I can wear to work or out to my local watering hole during the weekday grind. I have had these for 2 years now and they are holding up well. They fit true to size. Light weight. Look good. Only downside with these is the support in the sole. I am about to buy the newer version of these for the fall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LPacca from Comfortable everyday shoe They are very comfortable and look nicer than a pair of sneakers. Whenever I travel I'm sure to pack these shoes because of how versatile they are. I've walked in cities, on well-maintained trail, and even through shallow snow with these shoes and never had an issue.
