With summer on the horizon the PTB is a great go to shoe. Either way you will be very satisfied with your purchase.

I am panicking! Very common to shell…a lot of brushing and time will remove these spots.
Ravello chukka kinda day

Quote: Originally Posted by jhcam8 Funny they don't seem to note the lasts. I noticed that omission as well…I'll guess it's the Barrie or the Aberdeen. As for price if you want now that's a choice you make. That is a really nice boot and shoe trees are included.

I'm loving my pair of Little Tanks that I purchased. Not many miles on them and I just posted them a few pages back. Gotta say the plantation sole is really growing on me it makes the boot flexible right out of the box and ultra comfy for walking. Nice rugged casual boot and low maintenance as well.
