Nice!  Is that the Zegna?
For $270 it's worth considering. For the full price of $395, I think its not worth the price in terms of quality of materials and construction.

I had a pair of Espresso Blake Boots, that TBH, I didn't love. It was really more of a high shoe than it was a boot, and I did not like the leather used for the midsole. Was not the quality of material for a boot of that price. Also, the stitching on the upper seemed like it should have been better for the price. The last had a shoe-like shape to it, as opposed to boot-like. Don't get me wrong. I have bought like 10 pairs of Rancourts and sing their praises every change I...
