When I first came across Eastland's Made In Maine Collection at capsule (NY) I was blown away. The market may be oversaturated with high end mocs and boots already, but Eastland obviously doesn't care. They are taking things back to Maine and have produced one hell of a collection. These are shoes that need some hands on love to be fully appreciated - we're talking leather so oily you could make a goddamn salad dressing. I'll put my own personal opinions on Opening Ceremony aside for now because they are the first retail spot to carry the collection. If you're looking for that one big footwear purchase for F/W 2010 you should have no issues finding it here. I've been wearing Eastland shoes for a very long time and it's great to see them take things to the next level and finally put some stock into their heritage. When an American brand realizes that there is a niche market begging for this kinda stuff everybody, especially the consumer, wins. Look for the collection to also show up in store at Save Khaki in NY and online at Eastland's webstore among other places.
